Wedding Suit Hire Prices

Suit hire in the UK is a very large and competitive market; there are numerous companies across the town and cities of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and many more to be found online. Of all the varieties of suits available, wedding hire is the most popular. Choosing a suit for your wedding will provide you with many choices, and wedding suit hire prices will differ dramatically depending on your choice of outfit. There are also other factors involved with hiring a suit, and you will need to account for many things when coming up with a budget.

What factors affect the price of suit hire?

The first and probably largest factor of choosing a wedding suit will be your choice of shop. There are shops aplenty, both online and offline and wedding suit hire prices will be different at each store. To find the best deals for you, you will need to be prepared to shop around; the best way to do this is by going online. As well as there being numerous online retailers, there are many high street hire shops that use the internet to promote their products. This will mean you having all kinds of wedding suits in one place. Shopping online is also a good way to find cheap hire prices, internet retailers are able to operate on lower overheads when compared to high street shops; this will mean lower rates being passed on to customers.

Another big factor with wedding suit hire prices is the type of suit you choose. There are dozens of types of suits that are appropriate for weddings with fabrics, colours and styles available in abundance. You will find when shopping that some types and fabric of suit are more expensive than others. Popular suits for weddings include:
  • Lounge suits
  • Tailcoats
  • Edwardian suits
  • Frock coats
  • Nehru suits
Lounge suits are the most common choice of suit for most occasions and are generally the most widely available at the lowest prices. Tailcoats are the most formal option for wedding and will often be the most expensive to hire. Some fabrics are more highly valued than others, and this will be reflected in the price of hire. Lightweight materials such as linen and cotton will be much less expensive than heavier fabrics such as wool and tweed.

Including accessories with suit hire

The addition of accessories with suit hire is a must, with extras such as a tie or cravat, waistcoat and handkerchief, a wedding suit will be incomplete. The accessories you choose will impact on your wedding suit hire prices, and it may be wise to hire a suit as a package instead of hiring any needed extras individually. Hiring as a package will also mean you are assured of everything being included for the big day. 

If you are ordering a wedding suit online, you may need to budget for delivery costs, although most companies will provide this for free, express and same-day delivery may incur a charge.
