The Groom's Room

Destination ‘Wedding’

So where an earth does time go? It feels like 5 minutes ago we were eating Christmas pudding and now here I am eating unnecessary quantities of Easter chocolate!! Time certainly flies when you’re busy suiting and booting customers!!

Well we’ve well and truly settled into 2014 and it’s shaping up to be another fantastic year! With so many couples deciding to tie the knot, the 2013 superstition is well and truly behind us now and 2014 and 2015 are, it seems, the years in which to get hitched!

So we’ve seen a big increase in destination weddings of late and some really stylish themes have be put together. Super cool Essex Grooms who want to look the part beachside, without heavy dressing are opting for our light grey Claverley waistcoat and Trouser combo; casually worn without formal neckwear or jacket, these have looked strong with pastel beach bridesmaids shades. And another great look has been our light beige Venice suit teamed with aqua blue, hot pink or sunshine yellow accessories, all super styling for a sunshine beach wedding!

Back in the UK meanwhile, on the suit front we’ve seen a massive wave of interest in our trendy slim fitted styles which we now have in store, our classic cut suits do remain popular though which is of course another smart and strong option.

Towards the end of last year we predicted that blue suits would give grey suits a run for their money in 2014 and I don’t want to say I told you so, but our slim fit blue suit hires and suit sales are up a huge percentage already this year. So as the old football terrace song goes ‘blue is the colour and suits (football) is our game’ … it definitely is this year! Have a great week and enjoy your wedding planning.
