WEDDING SUIT PACKAGES
We understand how
much work goes into the
planning of a wedding,
so let our personalised
planning services take
care of the groom and
his men in the build up
to the big day. We offer
a range of customised
services and advice
on how to make you
look your best on your
wedding day. For less
stress, allow 4-5 weeks
preparation time before
the big day.
ONE ON ONE CONSULTATION SERVICE
Available both during and after business hours, our
consultation service ensures that every aspect of
the groom’s wear is thought out and planned. Our
formal wear advisors will discuss with you, in detail,
everything from viewing our entire range for an initial
ideas consultation to our wedding package prices
AFTER HOURS FITTING SERVICE –
WHY NOT MAKE AN OCCASION OUT OF IT?
By offering after hours access to our stores and
formal wear advisors, we can ensure there aren’t any
interruptions to the groomsmen’s schedules while
offering a relaxed environment, where the guys can
get fitted together over a beer, without the pressure
of an open store.
It is more than likely that some of the groomsmen
will be travelling from far and wide for the big day.
With 23 locations nationwide we can offer a local
fitting service for everyone, and when provided with
measurements, prepare sizes for those travelling
For a slick haircut and shave to match your suit,
we offer full grooming services at the Barkers
Groom Room in our Wellington, High
Street, Palmerston North and Dunedin stores. Like the fitting, you and your
groomsmen can book a group appointment together
and enjoy a complimentary beer or whisky during
your styling session. Remember to make sure to
allow at least a week between your cut and the
wedding day to allow the natural resting state of your
hair to return. We offer packages for our common cut
styles so you can get the wedding party all looking
their best together.

OFFER TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

Offer does not include alterations.
Unless the invite explicitly states casual or ‘smart casual’, leave the jeans at home. A lot of kiwi guys think they can get away with wearing jeans to a wedding as long as they have a shirt and dress shoes, but we would definitely advise against this. At the bare minimum go with a dress pant, dress shirt and dress shoe. Grey is a good choice for the dress pant, as black has the potential to encroach on the groom if he is in a tux. A dress shirt is usually very simple – no button up sleeves for example. Be sure to match your belt colour with your shoe colour.
A summer wedding often has a slightly more informal feel to it, particularly if it is during the day. Opt for a navy or light grey suit pant/suit, and pair it with a pastel shirt and brown brogues. A grey pant could be paired with a navy blazer and a white or pastel shirt. We would advise brown shoes/belt over black to avoid feeling overdressed in 26 degree temperatures. Short sleeve shirts should be left for the BBQ the next day.
This is totally up to you – these days’ groomsmen are dressed in anything from tuxedos to dress pants and shirts. However, we would recommend that as the groom you always make your look slightly more formal than that of your groomsmen. If you are wearing a black suit, try putting them in charcoal. If you’re all in charcoal – you could be the only one wearing a tie or a pocket scarf for example. We would recommend you opt for matching shoe colours across the board.
As the groom, you may have minimal input into what you’re wearing. However, if you do get a say, our advice would be “It’s all the details”. Make your outfit that extra bit special by adding a tie pin, pocket scarf or cufflinks. Be sure to match your belt to your shoes, which incidentally should be in mint condition.
