Our Concessions: What to Expect
So after a little bit of Pinterest and internet trawling you’ve found us and one of our three unique tweed suits that look like your kind of get up for the big day.
Now it’s time to get yourself booked in for an initial consultation, or Group Fitting if you have already picked the suit colour.
With our suits already being worn around the UK and beyond, we teamed up and opened up two other concessions last year to make our suits more accessible, and hey, not everyone fancies a long road trip to Bedford, we don’t take it personally!
Here’s a little insight into our concessions, what to expect on your visit and how the process works.
Can I just pop in?
Our concessions are operated by creative geniuses who spend most of their time making beautiful things, so they dedicate less time to appointments than we do in Bedford. For that reason they are appointment only; our concessions carry out initial consultations, Group Fittings and Single Person Fittings. You are welcome to pop by our Bedford store for a browse and to try on garments whenever Google tells you we’re open!
What colours do they have?
Our concessions each carry a size run of the Southwold Blue suit in Regular length, if you are looking to try all three on please book into our Bedford store.
What about the fit?
Our suits are the same size and fit across each colour, so the concessions are ideal for those groomsmen that can’t make it to Bedford to get fitted for their hire suit.
Do I need to bring my wallet?
All invoicing and payments are handled by us folk in Bedford so no need to worry about making payments, just bring your wallet for any post Fitting meals and/or pints (go steady though the sizes tried on will be the sizes reserved!)
Can I try on Accessories?
Legend Bridal & The Wed Hub have our range of accessories to try on with the suit and will take note of the accessories you like the most and then they can be purchased online (www.boydsofbedford.com) with the option to have them posted (free shipping over £50), or have them sent out with your hire suits, easy.
Do I need to remember my sizing information?
We share sizing information and basic contact details on a shared booking system, so all administration and invoicing is carried out by the team in Bedford. You should email or call us with queries as we will be your main point of contact.
After an initial consultation we will generate a quote for you based on the information taken during your appointment, and then you can have a think about whether our suits are the ones for you, hopefully they will be, I bet you looked great in them.
After a Group or Single Person Fitting the sizes are added onto the grooms booking form so everything is together in one place and the sizes reserved accordingly.
BLACKBURN – Legend Bridal Designs
Rachel, Tracy and Charlotte are the ladies behind Legend Bridal specialising in providing brides with unique dresses for their big day.
It seemed a natural fit when they had some extra space in their Great Harwood location to add our suits into the mix, talk about ticking off two big things on the wedding list in one go!
They have set up a brand new room dedicated solely to Grooms and their entourages, open by appointment, where you get the place to yourselves, you can see the Vintage Suit Hire collection, including accessories, and try the pieces on to find the perfect fit.
Legend Bridal also offer their own alteration service for our purchased suits, please see them for the pricing information, but that’s a great option if you’ve gone Off The Peg and just need a few tweaks.
PLYMOUTH – The Wedding Hub
Danielle is running the show down in Plymouth at her one-stop wedding store The Wedding Hub, with Rock The Frock Dresses, her own bespoke stationery business Faithful Designs and much more. She has an eye for detail and the kindest of hearts so will be able to help couples find their perfect style.
Grooms have their own section of accessories, gifts and garments to view and try on. A creative force, Danielle offers stationery design services, craft & creative business workshops too.
