T – Ted Baker’s Tie the Knot wedding service. Take the entire wedding party to Ted Baker’s London Floral Street & Manchester Shambles stores. You'll receive complimentary drinks and if you buy 3 or more suits, you get 15% off and if you buy 5 or more, 20% off.
V – Vows - Don't leave writing your vows until the day before the wedding. You'll be too nervous, excited and rattled to give them the time and thought they deserve. Try to get a first draft together about three weeks before the wedding and have your final version completed at least two days before.
U – Ushers – For yourself - the groom, ushers and best men, many people prefer to have the same suit. If you don't want to do that, then connect the group together with the same tie or pocket square.

The school of thought on this one is all the attention should be focussed on the happy couple. Think sober, traditional menswear where the devil is in the detail. It’s a long day, so you want something that is comfortable and also continues to look good well into the evening. This won't be breaking any fashionable moulds, but use it as an opportunity to invest in quality classics and timeless accessories.

Wedding season is upon us and while the big one has passed, there won't be many following William's lead and wearing the full military option. Here is Caleb Followill, lead singer of The Kings of Leon, wearing a Gucci Made to Order Heritage notch lapel two button suit with white dress shirt and pale beige tie to his wedding to model Lily Aldridge at San Ysidro Ranch, Montecito California last Thursday, May 12th.
This is the perfect example of a modern groom's option. Forget the Moss Bros rented morning coat, opt instead for a beautifully cut suit that you could quite easily wear again. It looks young yet smart enough for the big day. The pale tie and crisp white shirt compliments the bride and the brown shoes still holds onto his rock 'n' roll roots.
