I/We had hunted around looking for suits for our wedding. We'd tried the usual places, Moss Bro, Debenhams, youngs etc. To be honest I found the quality of the suits to be either poor or service to be pretty poor.
I did like the look of the Cameron Ross suits (no not the Highland Wear).
One of the best points of the renting the Cameron Ross suits is that since our wedding party were located Colchester, Warwick and Chester (+1 in New Zealand) was that we could get fitted in our local Cameron Ross stockist, then we could all pick up/try on the suits 10 days before. Which was great for the guy coming from New Zealand. Moss Bro etc only let us have the suits a few days before, and I could just imagine there being problems that would be stressful to solve at the late stage. Thankfully with the CR suits they were all perfect! no missing shoes or cuff links or bits.
Another major plus point I have to mention is the suit sizes. My bro/best man is big boy (tall not fat), and trying to find a suit to fit a 6.10 volleyball player is not easy!! Last thing we wanted was to have him looking like 16 year own in his first suit with the trousers up around his ankles and the cuffs 1/2 way up his arms! CR did provided extra length trousers and bigger jacket which were a perfect fit.
The service at The Wedding Shop was great, it was nice to be separate from the brides and have our own space. I have to say the suits were one of the least stressful parts of the wedding. Plus the prices was pretty good (you know how wedding can get expensive, espically when we needed 6 suits)
P.S. Wifey if you are reading this I'm sorry about stepping on your dress!
