Don't forget the Groom!

Today I had the opportunity to check out the showrooms of a brand new menswear supplier in Cork:  Lapel 1865.  It has only been opened for about 4 weeks, but has a fantastic range of stock and the showrooms are set up exactly like a bridal shop with private suites for the groom and wedding party to relax and try on a selection of morning suits and formal wear for weddings.

They are doing a fanastic deal whereby every suit they rent for the wedding comes with a brand new shirt which you get to keep along with the cufflinks!

Their showrooms are in the Frankfield Business Park, around the corner from Musgraves Cash and Carry on the Airport Road.  They are well worth a visit, very different from many of the other mainstream menswear shops, where you end up trying on your wedding suit right on the shop floor.  Pat and his team give a personal consultation to each bride & groom and help them select the suits and then allow plenty of time for fittings with the entire wedding party in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

Next door to Lapel 1865, the well known Bridal Shop Rice And Roses are having an open day this Sunday where they are offering 10% discounts to brides who buy their dress on the day.  Usually by appointment only, this is a fantastic opportunity to go in and take a look at the huge range of stock they have and avail of a fantastic discount into the bargain!

Lapel 1865 is also open on Sunday offering the same deal for the menswear, so don’t forget to bring along the husband-to-be!
