Frequently Asked Questions.

 

When should we book our hire suits?
People often ask me how long before their wedding they should they be looking at wedding suits and booking them. There is no correct answer to this question.  Most people do it 4 – 8 months before their wedding, however some people book over a year in advance and some people leave it to the last minute. Really it depends how organised you like to be. My advice would be 4-8 months before to ensure that you have enough time to organise the fittings of all your groomsmen and for peace of mind that you will get want you want on the most important day of your life.

 

Do we need to book an appointment to visit your suit hire shop?
It is advisable especially on Saturdays as the appointment diary can get filled upto a week in advance. We will always try to help anyone that drops in to our shop but if you book a personal appointment you will have the shop to yourselves to view and try on wedding suits in a private and relaxed atmosphere with no need to wait to be seen.


Do you use agents or warehouses?
No we dont use agents or warehouses as we have all our own range of suits and accessories on site in all sizes. This is beneficial as you can see the suit you will be getting for the day and know it will fit and look like new. Non dedicated suit hire companies sub-hire garments from agents and you never know exactly what you are getting until the week of your wedding which can be risky as sometimes sizes get booked out to other agents companies around the country. With The Wedding Hire Company of Oadby you have peace of mind that if someone has changed size since their fitting we will have the alternative size in stock on site even if its the week before your wedding. We would recommend that for wedding dresses go to a bridal boutique and for your mens wedding suits go to a wedding suit hire shop to ensure the best outfits and service and to avoid any problems.

 

Do you need to see the party together?
For your first appointment we recommend that you come with just your partner or one other.  Too many opinions can make it difficult to choose and it’s your big day so its what you like that counts! Once you have spent an hour with us and found your perfect outfit we can then finalise the order details and if you wish to proceed we take a £100 deposit to secure your booking. The remaining balance is then payable on collection of your wedding suits.

When should we come for a fitting?
We will make every effort to provide you with a suit up to the day of the event and we do have all sizes and styles in stock. However, to guarantee availability and a perfect fit we advise that all fittings are completed at least three weeks before the event.

What if some of our party can't get to the store?
No problem, we can find a shop in any town or city in the UK that will measure up any of your groomsmen that cant get to our shop in Leicester for a suit fitting. We can also send out a self measurement form for anyone oversees.


Can you custom make waistcoats and accessories?
Yes, we can organise this for you, we need at least 8 weeks notice

When can we collect and return our suits?
Collection and return of the outfits is flexible to fit in with you but most people collect two or three days before the wedding and return a couple of days afterwards.

Will we be asked to pay a deposit?
A non-refundable deposit of £100 is required on the day of the booking for wedding parties and £20 for dinner suits, this will be deducted from the balance of the outfit.

 

We are going abroad, and will need our outfits for several weeks - will it
be too expensive to hire?
Not at The Wedding Hire Company. If you need suits for between 1-7 days there is no surcharge on our normal rates. For hires between 8-21 days the surcharge is normally 50%. Contact us for a detailed quotation.
