Frequently asked questions about hiring suits from us. If you have any other questions, please do not hestitate to contact us.
How much notice do I need to give when hiring a suit?
With Wedding suits we recommend you book as soon as possible. Whilst stock is not normally a problem, the advantage of booking early is that once a suit is booked at Oliver's Bridal and Formalwear the prices are then held. For Evening Wear, whilst we can often accommodate immediate orders, to guarantee availability, reservations should ideally be made at least a week in advance
When are the suits available for collection and required for return?
For weekend weddings,collection is normally Thursday afternoon (from 2pm) and return on Monday (before 12pm). For evening suits or weekday weddings, collection is generally the day of, or day before the function and return the next working day. This is a general guide but if you have different requirements, because you are travelling or going on a cruise etc, have a chat with us and we will be happy to come to an arrangement with you.
When do I pay for the suit?
A 50% deposit is required when you place your wedding suit order with us, Once you have had your fitting the outfit is then reserved. The balance is due on collection.
What happens if I damage the suit or accessories
Don't worry, for a small additional cost upon request an ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE WAIVER can be added to your order. (Conditions apply, ask for details).
Do all the members of my wedding party need to come for their fitting at the same time?
We normally recommend that the Groom, Bride and possibly the Best Man come in first and take their time trying on as many different suits and accessories as they like. Shirts and shoes will also be available to try on, so you can see exactly how you will look on the big day. When you have decided on a certain outfit, we can then discuss what the other members of the party will wear. They can come in at a later stage either on their own or with you. You are more than welcome to visit us at anytime, however from January to June we are extra busy on weekends. So why not make an appointment or call in during the week, this will minimise any waiting.
