Groom's Attire Question!

Lara, on June 7, 2023 at 8:52 AM Posted in Wedding Attire 1 5

Fiancé purchased his suit for the wedding day. Reading up on the subject, I am again left confused.( so many different ways of going about things)-

He doesn't have to get his suit dry cleaned for it is brand new- and I have read it's not good to do so with a brand new suit. However, would like it wrinkle free! Question(s) are:

When we take it to the dry cleaners, are we asking for a steam? A press? "Get the wrinkles out please?"

Suit has been hanging neatly since purchase and covered, so not many wrinkles naturally- but some creases.

Should his tie be included in the press/steam?


Also, in regard to his dress shirt. It is brand new. I have read to launder it at home first THEN take it to dry cleaners. OR should we just take it unwashed to the cleaners? It is NOT a tux dress shirt, does it need to be starched?

Thanks for any input!

    If you hang it in the bathroom when you shower the steam will relax the fabric from the suit usually. Generally it'll get out unwanted creases and wrinkles because showers tend to be steamy. Starching is usually the preference of the man if you don't wear button ups a lot it will be more comfortable to have it not be extra startchy / firm / can be itchy. you can include the tie but it shouldn't need any attention. Depending on where you got the shirt from I would wash it. You can always ask the dry cleaners. It's there job to help you. I find ones near military bases really know there stuff because they're always fixing uniforms and need to be reliable so people don't get in trouble.

    Hay sweetheart. I apologize for the lack of & late response to you. I hope your planning is going well! And girl, YES. This website helped me tremendously. Many things I was on the fence about or had silly questions to, I could easily find by just searching through old questions! It is also very helpful Lorrisa for AFTER the wedding! In regard to the suits.... I never thought I'd have that question through all of the stuff planned either, LOL. What I ended up doing: Taking the suits AND the new shirts (unwashed) and the ties to the cleaners. She inspected everything and just did a nice press on it all. (And washed the new dress shirts first.) She made sure the ties were pressed (light run over just for travel purposes, they didn't need it really.) We traveled almost three hours (by car) to our wedding destination. Through that and the three days we were there before our wedding day, his suits and shirts held up very well. (I got them all snazzed up and picked them up Monday - we headed out of town on Wednesday- the wedding was Saturday.) I took the advice of Joey (other kind commenter here) and went with unstarched! Super glad we went with that! Again, I hope your planning is going well, and is mostly UN stressful. Enjoy it love. It goes by super fast (and that's coming from someone who took her dang time for two years, LOL.) XOXO.
