I have two quite broad questions relating to wedding suits as I am pretty clueless.
What would people say is a reasonable amount to spend on a suit? I know this depends on the individual's budget, but does anyone have an idea of the average?
If anyone had some suggestions for places to go in or around London that would be much appreciated.
I do not think there is a number (of amount) which is reasonable for wedding dress. Wedding dresses are really expensive, reason is not always the fabric, embroidery, workmanship or brand. There is a main reason which is the word "wedding" because There's so much emotion tied to that word that's it's hard to put a number on it, but it's there. These are not the dresses but These are emotions and we knows emotions are priceless :)If you can visit Birmingham there are lots of shops where you can get around £1000.

I don't think you can give an average, as it's very much going to depend on the quality of the suit - and to a certain extent, the area you live in. My cousin & his groomsmen just wore their 'best' suits for his wedding but bought matching ties. But I know other people who have bought bespoke suits which cost £1,000s!
If the groom wears suits a lot, then it might be worth splashing out on a very expensive or bespoke suit that can be worn for life. If not, you could look at hiring. Although I've often thought it makes far more sense for the groom to buy and the bride to hire, bearing in mind the bride rarely wears her dress again, whereas the groom could wear his kit for the rest of his life, figure permitting!

Its saving and practical as well.
