Everything you need to know about dressing your groomsmen

Dressing the groomsmen could potentially become one of the biggest tasks of planning your wedding, whether you’re a groom trying to get your fellow men in line, or you’re a bride trying to organise everything, Slaters are here to help. 

Slaters are a menswear retailer and formal hire service with over 40 years retail experience, so you can be assured that you’re in safe hands with us. 

We love a wedding, and truly believe that the modern man cares as much about the way him and his party will be dressed, as much as the ladies do, so we’ve got an extensive array of suits and traditional highland wear that can be either purchased or hired. 

So, what are your options when it comes to dressing the Grooms party?


The most common choice nowadays is to buy the suits for the wedding, a lot of grooms are choosing to invest in suits that him and the other gents love, and can keep wearing.

If you’re buying suits, you’ll want to take time researching different brands and styles to find something they’ll be happy to wear time and time again, so buying with Slaters allows you to explore our vast array of tailoring brands, all in one place. 

We’ve split our wedding suits in to 4 collections, organised by their style/ over all feel.groomsmen

You can shop from our classic, heritage, bold and statement suit collections to help you pin point the right one for your day. 

If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, find out the fun way by taking Slaters’ wedding suit quiz, a light-hearted quiz that takes every element of you and your day into consideration to help you find the perfect suit. 

The most common problem with buying, is finding a suit that is in stock in all the sizes you need, especially if you’re buying for a large party of men, so Slaters have created a unique online tool to help with this. 

The Wedding Suit Selector is a unique online organisation tool that allows you to input all the sizes you need, select the colour suits you’re interested in, and just browse suits that are in stock and available to buy in all the sizes you need. 

The Wedding Suit Selector helps you to avoid disappointment by doing the legwork for you and filtering down your options to provide you with a selection of suits that fit all your criteria, all you then have to do is browse our choices and save your favourites, by doing this we’ll keep them safe in your online account for you to review whenever you’re ready to purchase. 

As well as all that, when you’re inputting the sizes you need, you can also add in the names of each member of the party next to their sizes so you know you’ve covered everyone.


Known as a more old fashioned option now, but hiring your grooms wear is an affordable option for those on a budget, and perhaps a more suitable choice for a groom who isn’t really a suit wearer, there’s no need to invest in a suit just for the day. 

Slaters’ hire wear department is filled with both traditional and modern suits from full morning suits to kiltspatterned three-pieces, as well as authentic highland wear such as kilts and highland jackets. 

Our hire wear section has every size you could need, as well as a dedicated kid’s hire wear section so even the little members of the Grooms party can look the part.

Not your perfect fit? No problem!

Alteration costs for hired suits are all included in the initial price, and if you’ve purchased a suit from Slaters and the fit isn’t spot on, you can get your suit altered for free in any of our 25 stores across the UK. 

So, when it comes to dressing the groomsmen, don’t get yourself stressed, get Slaters to do the hard work for you, whether you use our services, online or in store.
