Details: designed as an experience to be shared with the important people in the groom’s life, whether it’s his father, the father of the bride, best man or ushers, the Groom’s Day Out covers those topics about which the groom needs to be most informed for his wedding day. Our wedding expert will advise the groom and his party on topics such as typical duties in preparation for and on the day of the wedding, how to ease nerves, what to consider when purchasing a suit, and how to write a wedding speech. On booking, grooms will receive a questionnaire to complete in advance of the session, providing our wedding expert with an overview of their wedding plans and aspirations, allowing for a truly bespoke service. The service includes a trip to a Savile Row tailor or West End outfitter to learn about traditional morning dress and how to select an appropriate morning or lounge suit, shirt and tie. The session ends on a celebratory note over a glass of whiskey (or non-alcoholic alternative) in one of Mayfair’s finest library bars.
