Hello #newlyengaged couples! Your Kiss of Perfection wedding planner here with more tips for getting your wedding planned perfectly.
We are living in a difficult time right now where social distancing is important but life still goes on. Love will always endure and as such your wedding celebration will happen.
If you're unable to make it to a professional tailor right that's ok. You can still shop, take your measurements in the comfort of your home and have your custom suit made in time for the big day. Many wedding attire boutiques are turning to video shopping where you can view the store's inventory but in order to have your custom suit made they will need your correct measurements. That's where we come in! Use our guide and tips below to have your fiance help you take your measurements. Tell them it's a bonding activity 😉!

How to measure for the right fit: Make sure you wear clothes that don't restrict your movements.
Jacket Measurements: 1. Chest: Measure around your chest- place the tape high right under your arms and over
the fullest part of your chest 2. Waist: Measure around your waist at the widest area. Breathe normally, it's important
not to hold your breath or push out. 3. Hips: Measure around the widest part of your hips and rear 4. Shoulders: Place the tape high across the base of your neck. Measure from where your shoulder meets your arm across the base of your neck to the other spot where your shoulder meets your arm. 5. Sleeve: Measure from the base of your shoulder to about 1 inch below your wrist. 6. Length: Measure from the end of your shoulder to the base of your thumb.
Pants Measurements: 1. Waist: Measure around your waist where you feel comfortable wearing your pants.
Leave 1 finger width between your body and the tape. Remember to breathe
normally. 2. Hips: Measure the widest part of your hips and rear; at or below your hip bone
(your preference on where you normally wear your pants) 3. Crotch: Measure from the top of your pant's waistband, through your legs and to the top of your pant's waistband at your rear. The tape measure will form a "U".
Measure from the inner top of your thigh to the bottom of your pant leg to the
length you desire. 5. Thigh: At the widest part measure around one thigh. 6. Length: Along the outside of your leg measure from the top of your pant's waistband to the length you desire.
During the wedding planning process the best time to shop for your suit is after you have discussed your wedding budget, chosen a venue and selected a wedding date. The best time to purchase your suit is 4-5 months before your wedding as it takes about 3 months for a custom suit to be designed.
