Buying a wedding suit

Wedding suit for an unforgettable wedding day

How to Make Your Wedding Day Unforgettable

A beautiful wedding suit is essential, but because we at The Garrison want to make sure you know everything you need for an unforgettable wedding day, we've listed some key points.

When you're getting married, there's a lot to arrange. At least if you want to make it a beautiful and unforgettable day with family and friends. Even if you're celebrating your wedding in a relatively small circle, adequate preparation is necessary. Some couples start planning a year in advance. It's not always necessary, but if you have very specific desires, it's not a bad idea to start arranging things for the wedding so far in advance. This is especially true if you want to get married on a popular date. Getting married on a Friday is still very popular because many people have Saturdays off and can enjoy a Friday night celebration without any constraints. We're happy to provide you with some tips to help you enjoy your wedding day stress-free.

The Most Important: The Wedding Date and Venue

A wedding suit and wedding dress are very important, but one thing is of essential importance: When is the wedding taking place? That date needs to be chosen first, and from there, you can start "counting backward." When do things need to be arranged to be ready for the wedding date? The most important aspects are usually booking the venue where the wedding will take place and the reception venue. Nowadays, you don't have to get married at the town hall; there are beautiful venues available for wedding ceremonies. However, keep in mind that getting married "on location" is more expensive than having the ceremony at the town hall.

How Will the Wedding Be Celebrated?

A wedding can be celebrated in various ways. You can have a short reception or a lively wedding party. If you invite your guests for the entire day, you need to consider providing food. Many venues that offer a banquet hall also have options for dinner or a buffet. Determine how many people you want to invite for dinner. The kitchen needs to know well in advance so they can prepare for the number of guests. For the evening party, which typically starts around 8:00 PM after dinner, you can invite more people. The number of guests for the evening party should also be roughly known since the rented banquet hall will be adjusted accordingly. Typically, you can expect that about 2/3 of the people you invite will actually attend. There are always people who are busy or won't be able to make it but might send their best wishes by mail or in another way.

Groom's Wedding Suit?

Once the date and venue are arranged, there's still one very important matter to address: the clothing for the bride and groom and any bridal party members. The groom will, of course, wear a beautiful wedding suit, such as those offered by The Garrison. They have an extensive collection of custom-made suits in the Peaky Blinders style. This style dates back to the 1920s and is currently quite trendy, largely thanks to the TV series of the same name. A custom suit in this style doesn't have to be expensive. Even if you don't have an unlimited budget for the wedding, including clothing, you can still wear a beautifully tailored suit that allows you to shine alongside your beautiful bride.

Say Yes to the Dress

Before a bride says her vows, she first has to say yes to the dress she'll wear on the most beautiful day of her life. There are so many different wedding dresses available that there is undoubtedly a beautiful outfit for every bride. Even if you're not a "girly girl" and would prefer to get married in your skinny jeans. And even if you don't wear a size 2, like most Dutch women, you can still find a beautiful wedding dress that makes you look your best. In a bridal boutique, you can usually get good advice. The saleswoman will consider your figure and presence and suggest a suitable dress if you find it difficult to choose something yourself. But if you already have a clear idea of how your dress should look, that's perfectly fine too. If you know that the groom is going for the Peaky Blinders style, it's appropriate to match that style, even though the dress is traditionally kept secret from the groom until he sees his bride during the ceremony.

Where to Find Wedding Suits for the Bridal Party?

If there are bridal party members attending the wedding, it is customary for them to be dressed in the same style as the bride and groom. So, the ring bearers wear mini versions of the groom's wedding suit, and the flower girls wear a lovely dress in the same style as the bride. Young flower girls, such as preschoolers, can carry a basket of flowers to scatter. Older flower girls often enjoy carrying a mini bridal bouquet. The ring bearers are typically quite stylish and get to escort the ladies.

What else needs to be arranged for the perfect wedding day?
The wedding venue, banquet hall, wedding suit, and wedding dress, as well as the bridal party's attire. In addition, catering is crucial to arrange for a perfect wedding day. However, there are also some "minor details" that deserve attention. If you're getting married in the Peaky Blinders style, it's fun to decorate the reception venue in this style as well. Often, you can do this a day in advance. If you have a master of ceremonies, and you should if you want to have a relaxed wedding day, they will take care of all of this. Even the party favors you give to the guests to thank them for attending can follow this trendy vintage style; there are plenty of ideas available online. With these tips, your wedding day will be a beautiful day that you'll look back on with great pleasure.
