The groomsmen all hired their suits from Slaters. The couple bought the shirts, cravats, hankies and socks depicting each man’s role to go with the hired trousers, waistcoats and jackets.
Louise went to several wedding fairs and took note of the groomswear, and Slaters always stood out to her. They had a limited time to pick out groomswear as Charlie was away with the army in Cyprus. Louise wanted the boys in navy blue suits but Charlie had his eye on brown ones. Luckily for the bride the best man went suit shopping with them and managed to persuade the groom navy blue was a much better choice!
