The bride has her oh so gorgeous wedding dress, now its time for the groom to pick out his dapper look for the big day!
Suit shopping doesn't have to be hard! Lucky for you, we have some awesome tips from our San Diego Wedding Planner. Whether you visit your local boutiques with the boys or shop beer in hand from the comfort of your home, we've got you covered!
Step 1 : Do you want to rent or buy your suit ? Our links below give you options for men's wedding suit rentals.
Tip : Make appointments, you'll be guaranteed the full hour you deserve!
Once that decision is made, take the wedding venue into consideration (beach, ballroom, brewery wedding?!) and the look you want. Your suit should compliment the setting and background. From there, choose the look for your groomsmen. Keep in mind that tailoring and alterations are crucial. Don't forget to find a place that will get you fitted perfectly!
The final fitting should happen about 2-3 months before your wedding. This means it's best to start shopping 3-4 months before the big day. Many shops require an appointment so be sure to call ahead and schedule.
