It has become a bit of a tradition for the bride to gift her future husband a watch on their wedding day - Perfect for celebrating the next step of your relationship and momentous occasion.

Styling on the day

Styling on the day

When you take your waistcoat off, make sure you can’t see any shirt between the waistcoat and your trousers as it ruins the clean look. Raise your trousers higher! 

Bring an extra shirt of the same fabric, just in case. This is huge. If the one you’re wearing is double cuff, bring an extra single cuff. On a high-pressure day like this, anything could happen; from forgetting your cufflinks, to a red wine spillage or even forgetting your shirt altogether! To be prepared is to be relaxed.

Slaters’ Statement Collection – September Wedding Style

Slaters’ Statement Collection – September Wedding Style

September is often considered a bit of a transition month for style, summer fashion seems a little outdated but it’s not quite time to break out the Autumnal colours yet. So with that in mind, we would recommend that a September groom shifts his focus from colour to pattern.  

Slaters’ statement collection has bold prints at its core, and is the perfect option for those transitional months where you just can’t pick a colour of the season.

The main print we’d recommend for September is a check, Slaters’ collection of checked suits are available in various colours, and range from being super bold, to a little more subtle, so whatever your style, you can make a patterned suit work for you.
