Since I dedicated last week to my bridesmaids, it seemed only right that the boys get a look in this week.
Kieran's best man is a friend he has known since school who is not only his best friend but also one of mine. His other three ushers are also close friends of us both. We wanted to use the wedding as an opportunity not just to thank them for their support on the day but to thank them generally for being such good friends.
We will be hiring grey three piece suits for the boys from The Wedding Hire Co. of Oadby in Leicestershire. We had a really hard time finding anywhere that hired wedding suits that fitted with what we wanted. Lots of places had a great selection of colourful and patterned waistcoats, but as I have said, this wasn't for us.
The Wedding Hire Co were really helpful and had just what we were looking for. We also managed to negotiate the price down to £62 per suit which was one of the best prices we could find.
We decided not to hire the ties as we wanted to find something that would fit into our wedding theme and use it as a way to treat the boys.
We ended up buying the ties from Paul Smith. They are similar to Kieran's but there is a slight difference (more of that to come) so Kieran will stand out but still complement the wedding party.
The baby blue fits in perfectly with our pastel theme and the polka dots are spot on (terrible pun) for the Cath Kidston theme.
Kieran will be leading the double windsor knot masterclass on the big day I'm sure!
