Your West Midlands Wedding- December 2021/January 2022 (Issue 77)

MEET DEAN CARTER FROM CARTER ESQUIRE 07429 570 655 | Carter Esquire believes that the groom and his VIP’s should receive the platinum service they deserve. Here we list the key considerations and questions to ask when deciding on your perfect suit: Your wedding theme – Have you agreed on the overall theme for your day? It may be classical, vintage, country, modern, bohemian or even Art Deco. The groom’s look should complement the theme, such as a black tux may suit a classical theme, whereas a tweed would work well in a vintage or country style wedding. Think seasonal – Consider the season that the wedding will take place. Mix things up with a patterned, herringbone, plaid or houndstooth suit to add variation and a sense of personality. Colours Scheme – Does your wedding have a particular colour scheme? It’s important to decide if you want certain things to match, such as the ties and flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses, chair covers etc. Here at Carter Esquire, we can colour match fabrics and offer advice. Opting for the same suit in different colours could work well for variation across the party. Fit matters – The key to pulling off a killer suit is the fit, this means that it’s important to wear a suit that complements your body shape. There are three main types of fit: Regular – for those who prefer a classic style in a comfortable fit with room for extra movement. It’s also ideal for people with a larger build than average. Slim – ideal for those with a slimmer physique. Tailored – a more streamlined look and a midway option that allows more movement than a regular fit. Accessorise your look – Accessories can be just as important as the suit when it comes to injecting some personality into an outfit, so take time to find the perfect additions and ensure they match your suit. Cufflinks add a touch of sophistication, whilst a patterned tie can look great against a dark suit. A bright silk tie is ideal for adding a splash of colour to summer events. We stock a multitude of different accessories and can offer advice as to what looks best with what. OUR TOP TIPS ♥ Hiring is cheaper and often more convenient, but when you buy, you’ll often end up with a better suit. Make the decision based on your budget. You could buy the groom’s suit and hire the groomsmen’s suits that way you can save money without compromising on quality. ♥ Trust your supplier, they are there to help and have expert knowledge. ♥ At the start of your appointment, your consultant will ask about your ideas and plans for the big day. Be descriptive as this will help paint a picture of how you envisage your special day and don’t be afraid to ask questions. ♥ Dress to your taste for the appointment. This will help the consultant recognise your style. ♥ Look through their collections and choose the designs that stand out to you. Take advantage of the consultant’s knowledge, as outfits can look completely different on a hanger and they will know instantly what will suit your shape. FLOWERS 57 LOOKING YOUR B ST
