Your Wedding Suit

It’s time to plan your big day.

You’ve decided on the venue, got The Dress, booked the photographer, found the florist and now, finally, it’s time for the groom’s suit!

Here at Astares, we’re all about The Groom. So, if you’ve got your big day coming up, read on…

We focus on helping you look and feel fantastic. We want you to leave us feeling confident, inspired, proud of yourself and excited about wearing your wedding suit.

We understand that it is often important that the Groom’s wedding attire works well with the theme of the wedding, taking into consideration any important colours that feature.

This is why we invite your fiancée or fiancé to join you during consultation! It gives you both the opportunity to discuss your preferences, your opinions on what works, what doesn’t work and from there, settle on the suit that you will be married in!

We stock a stunning range of modern suits. With new lines being added regularly, you can be sure you’ll find the most up to date fashion and trends.

If you are looking for something more bespoke finish, we can give you the details of our seamstress, who will work her magic and ensure the perfect fitting suit.

Your First Consultation

Your journey to discover the perfect wedding suit begins with your first consultation.

We invite you to bring your partner with you, but if you’d rather they don’t see the suit before your big day, please bring somebody who’s opinion you trust.

We’ll start off with a chat. We want to know what’s important to you, the ideas you have and any important colour themes.

From there, it is time to start trying on the suits! Together, we will aim to find your whole outfit – including shoes, neckwear and accessories. We want to give you that WOW! moment in front of the mirror. 

Our primary focus is always on the Groom. Our service is designed to offer the same high level experience that a bride expects to recieve when shopping for her dress.

When you have found your dream suit, then we’ll move onto the groomsmen.

We’ll look at all the options available to you, ensuring that your guys coordinate not only with you as the Groom, but also with the overall theme of the wedding.

Some parties like all of the everyone – including the groom – in the exact same suit, while others opt for the Groom to wear a striking standout suit from his groomsmen.

Frequently asked Questions

When should I come in for my initial consultation and who should I bring?

We would advise coming in once you are ready to commit to your wedding suits. This will vary between couples.

The reason we say once you are ready, is that the styles and current suit lines change periodically. Should you find a suit you love, and then wait a few months, you may no longer be able to select that suit. 

As a guide we recommend once you are under the year mark until your big day is a good time to start the process. 

When coming in for your initial consultation, we always recommend bringing your partner or one other person whose opinion you trust.

It’s not a problem coming in at short notice, just be aware that the options available may be reduced especially if you are looking to size a groom’s party.

What happens after my consultation? ?

After the initial consultation we will send you some quotes of the wedding suit/ outfit you decided on during your appointment.

We would require a deposit of 30% to confirm the order. Once this deposit is paid, you are welcome to book in your groomsmen for their suit fittings. Our video on the wedding service will help fully explain this. 

Do you offer made to measure suits?

Astares does offer an excellent made to order service. Find out more here .

We do offer a fabulous range of off the peg Mens suits. If you are looking for a bespoke fitting suit, this can be achieved with alterations on an off the peg suit at a fraction of the cost.

When should my guys come in for fittings?

We advise as soon as you are ready  then we can size them and get them sorted. Ideally if we can have them fitted at least 3- 6 months before the wedding this will ensure there are no issues with any special order items. 

Many couples will get this under way even 12 months before to ensure its all taken care of long before the big day. 

The sooner the guys come in for fittings the better. Items can sometimes go on back order. This could be anywhere between 1 week and 3 months, so we do not like to leave anything to chance.

 

What happens if anyone in my party needs alterations.

We do not provide alterations in house at Astares. However, our trained staff will be able to advise on what adjustments can and cannot be achieved. We can also give a guide on the rough price costing of this.

We do recommend a brilliant seamstress that we work with regularly and she will take care of you.

One of my groomsmen lives too far away to come in to be fitted, what do I do?

We can accept emailed sizes here at Astares, but we strongly advise against doing this as we cannot guarantee that the sizes will be correct.

We always try to provide a great fitting suit, but without physically trying a garment on there is no way for us to ensure this.

If the guys can come in for fittings, this is always advised.

If the suit is a special-order item, and it does not fit , Astares will not be able to offer an exchange or give a refund if the sizes were ordered without Astares completing the size fittings. Often emailed sizes result in non-fitting garments. This means it’s a big risk you must take when ordering the suit.

We are here to fit your guys and it is all part of our service.

When can I collect my suits?

As soon as everyone has been fitted, we will order the items in for you. Once all items have been received and are ready for collection, we will be in touch to arrange a suitable time for you to collect.

Once you have confirmed the order and the last guy has been fitted, all items could be ready to collect in as little as one week. Larger orders or special-order items may mean your order will take a little longer. We will always have your suits available with plenty of time before your big day.

Suits must be collected within 14 days of Astares contacting you regarding collection, we cannot hold wedding suits until your wedding as storage space can become an issue.

We strongly advise collecting your wedding suits as soon as they are ready, as everyone will need to try them on and have enough time to arrange any alterations they may need.
