The modern groom is every bit as fashion conscious as the bride, and the process of selecting attire for the big day takes on much importance. And when budget permits, the custom route is definitely the route to take.

Considerations :

  • Budget allocated for attire.
  • Locations and levels of formality of the events.
  • Fabric choices vis-à-vis weather conditions.
  • Lead time available prior to the wedding and timeframe required by custom tailors.
  • Necessity to complement the bride-to-be’s outfits.

Words of advice :

  • Check if there are special promotions such as package buys that will include suits for fathers and groomsmen.
  • Negotiate a better deal if you are ordering a number of outfits.
