If you're planning a wedding, you may or may not know that a custom wedding suit is possible for your big day. When I got married 13 years ago, a custom suit for my fiance wasn't even on my radar. And while I love him and think he looked quite handsome, I wish we had considered it for him. When you spend this much time looking at your photos from the big day, it's important that everyone look their best!
Is a custom garment right for you?
If you're new to the topic of a custom suit for the wedding, you may have some questions, like:
- How much does a custom suit or tux cost?
- How much does a bespoke suit cost?
Today's Episode on Custom Wedding Suits
On today's episode of the podcast, we talk about the magic and beauty of custom suits. I will be the first one to confess, I didn’t know much about custom tailored suits until I became a wedding planner. But now that I’ve discovered them, I’m obsessed and want to share them with all of you.
Today we’re diving into the details of custom-tailored suits – who is it good for, why you might want to consider having a custom suit, and other important questions to consider.
And don't forget, a custom suit isn’t just for the guys. Women also wear suits to their wedding day, too!

I hope you all enjoyed this week’s episode with Peter. In fact, I’ve been wanting to do an episode on custom suits for a long time. Thankfully, Peter was able to join us. Please make sure you follow Adrian Jules on Instagram. Their clothing is absolutely exquisite. One day I hope to get my husband a custom suit. I really wish we’d done that for our wedding 13 years ago. It's not that he didn’t look good, but I feel like a really well-tailored suit would have taken him from a 10 to an 11.
