Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Formal Red offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

I've gained weight since my formal wear was fitted. What are my options?

At what point in the custom made suit process can the measurements be re-taken? What other options would I have?

Formal Red

A custom made garment is a process that requires precise measurements and an experienced tailor. If we have taken your measurements then the next process is to draw up the pattern for your bespoke garments, begin the cutting process and book in the tailoring. At this stage it is to late for a re-measure, so the best approach in the instance of weight change is to make adjustments to your garments on your next fitting.

As we can not predict how much person will change in weight and how that will effect their measurements, we suggest that a weight change of no more than 4-5 kilograms. If you are planning on changing your size then best approach is to get measured as close to the cut off time as possible. Always check our website for lead times so you have maximum options available to you.

What can the Groom wear for a summer wedding?

We're getting married in February in Brisbane and it's very likely to be hot and sticky. Now, I want my fiance to look sharp, but I don't want him to suffer either. What do you suggest he wear? (Don't worry about best man or groomsmen, we're not having any.) It's a garden ceremony in the shade, and the bride is wearing a simple tea-length dress, if that makes a difference.

Formal Red

Most of our couples we cater for are getting married in spring or summer and the advise we give them is to simply avoid wearing synthetic or blended fabrics.

For warmer months natural fibres work best. Light wools for most suits or alternatively for a more relaxed look cotton or linen will provide the best comfort.

If your opting for a suit jacket always ask for Half canvas or full canvas construction.  This traditional tailoring craft will ensure you are at your most comfortable.
