Wedding Suits: Hire or Buy?


Wedding planning is a huge task for any couple, whether that’s organising  the venue, the band, a photographer, the invitations, stag and hen dos or the wedding dress (of course).

One of the key decisions the groom will have to make, however, is choosing whether to hire or to buy a suit for the big day. Today, we’ve weighed up the various advantages to both sides of the argument!


Buying a Suit

  • A three piece suit or 2 piece suit should be considered as an investment, creating an outfit to be worn again and again.
  • Potentially, there are more types of fits, styles and colours to choose from, with a focus on mix and match suits.
  • Off the rack men's suits can be adjusted to fit any size or build.
  • With a wider range, it's easier to make a statement; going against the grain and choosing a unique wedding suit for your own tastes.



Hiring a Suit

  • If you’re purchasing suits for yourself and the groomsmen, hiring a suit could make it easier to choose all the outfits to coordinate.
  • Typically, hiring a suit costs around £100; Off the rack suits can potentially be a little pricier.
  • Hired suits are replaceable - depending on the issue.
