We get married in a month and having just found out about Greenwoods going into administration, we've lost all our suits. Thankfully all of our guys are pulling together and going and buying suits until we can sort refunds back to them. However I'm looking for any rustic/ tweed style groom outfits for my other half? Needs to be DIY because we don't want to go hire from anywhere after this and nothing too expensive!
So sorry to hear this and I hope you get things sorted. We have been wondering whether to buy or to hire but this has made my mind up ... M&S here we come.
Have you been told explicitly you have lost them? We are also getting married next month and ordered our suits from Greenwoods but haven't been told they cannot order honour the arrangement?
Try Master Debonair, they have a Facebook page. Not massively expensive and do a variety of different colours :)
Next usually have really nice suits
That's the suit my partner has got Carli!
We are hiring from Debenhams, and it is not expensive (I also trust they won't go into administration).
We used Grwenwoods for our suits when we married last month. My partner had a nightmare with them ordering wrong size suits, having to keep going back, telling him the suits wouldn't be ready till the day before the wedding it was pathetic. Our local shop also closed and we had to transfer to another. They were totally useless!! Hope you manage to get your money back.
We ordered from formally yours - £60/suit (including insurance) and they were absolutely superb. Can't recommend them highly enough
Try Next. Not sure it's right time of year for many tweed options so may struggle otherwise try online.
I can recommend Slaters, their service was excellent and you can buy tgeir suits from £49. They have all sorts of styles and sizes, goid luck x
We got ours from the next winter range :)
So sorry to read of your awful problems hitting , sending you Best Wishes for your day to be still Special ! Xx
Marc darcy suits
ASOS normally do quite out there tweed bohemian suits because of the races and stuff xx
You may find what you're looking for in Joe Browns online or Racing Green
I phoned ACS and as we had only paid our deposit and our wedding is next year we were advised to go elsewhere for suits. As we liked the style we had chosen the lady on the phone was able to tell me which retailers near me stock their suits so because of this we have chosen to go to Debenhams as they have the style we chose. Could you ring ACS again and ask if there is retailer near you they suppply as you may be able to get the same suit?
So sorry to hear this. Hope you get it sorted.
Jane & David, this is why wedding insurance is so important! X
No wonder why we went to our local one when we were wedding planning and they had no clue what they were doing we had a booked time slot and waited over 45mins just standing there not a word was said to us we left fuming
I know it's a risk and not sure how long it took but my brother in law got his from that ali baba online think it's on China and you send all your exact measurements his suit was really lovely and was tweed went with the groomsmen tweed ones they had from next - my husband is a big gym goer and didn't fancy his chances with online so we got all ours from next we found them to be near on the same price we was going to pay to hire, I would still check with greenwoods though as you might be lucky
Our wedding is next Saturday. Greenwoods told us Monday evening. I contacted Slaters in Manchester and they have been amazing. Picked up same suits today. Couple of days turn round. You have to accept your money has gone. As company has gone into Administration, your at the bottom of a long line of creditors. You may eventually get 25p in the £1. Not worth the fight. Most important thing is you get sorted for your day. I highly recommend Slaters. Good luck.x
If you want tweed, there is a company on eBay, they are based in York, my other half had bought two from there in the last year, really good suits
They are called. Buttonsandbows that's their user name
We bought all of our tweed suits from Marc Darcy, they're fab, google their website, they also have stockists throughout the country, they are very reasonably priced and I'm really pleased with the quality. They do discounts if you buy so many suits too
Did you have wedding insurance
What sizes do u need I have 5 of these tweed waistcoats u could buy £20 each x
Try eBay they do a lot of ex hire suits we brought a lovely dinner jacket off there looked brand new x
Wow reading all the comments, I'm glad we weren't the only ones to experience problems! We got married August 31st and didn't get our suits until 2 days before the wedding, and then my little boys suit (which should have fitted a 21 month old) could have easily fit a 4/5 YEAR old! So 2 days before his parents were to get married he bad nothing to wear! Loads of other issues including the best man's trousers being too big (he had to change into his jeans for the evening) and buttons galling off everywhere. Staff were worse than useless and although they probably knew it was coming and they were losing their jobs, it's no excuse when it concerns people's wedding day! I was literally drafting an email to their customer services demading a refund when the news that they were in administration dropped, so I don't think I'll be bothering now. I would highly recommend trying slators. They literally bent over backwards to sort out something for my little boy. X x
Master debonair is absolutely amazing.
Always take out wedding insurance
Master Debonaire in East Boldon have lots of choice and do the Marc Darcy suits others are mentioning. They also did discount when we bought 7 suits
Try Marc darcy suits online, ordered my OH's suit from them, Quick delivery and amazing fit, many less traditional coloured suits and was only £140 for my OH's 3 piece suit
We got all 8 of our tweed suits from Marc darcy they were brilliant and very good prices. Xxx
I also got my suits from greenwoods and ACS are still giving my my suits as they supply debenhams with suits too! Just need my money back from greenwoods to pay debenhams x
We got our tweed style suits from Amazon, they are sold by a company called truclothing
Try Debenhams or topshop also try ebay i found some wonderful things for my wedding. Good luck and have a fabulous day xx
