All too often the Groom gets forgotten in the run up to the big day, whereas the Bride has bountiful opportunities to get together with pals and celebrate. Well St Pancras Renaissance Hotel want to change the dynamic with the introduction of ‘The Last Hurrah’ a stylish pre wedding groom package. Incorporating a bespoke trip to London’s Savile Row, traditional wet shaves in Gentlemen’s Tonic, a Groom’s Dinner in the Booking Office, an overnight stay and an Ushers’ Brunch in The Gilbert Scott, a unique experience for the gents to ensure the husband-to-be is sent off into married life in style.
The experience begins 3-6 months prior to the wedding with a meeting with The Groom Style Consultant. After fuelling up with breakfast, menswear stylist Sammy Aki, will help with suit options for the groom and his best man, taking into account the wedding theme. A follow up meeting on London’s suit oasis Savile Row, gives the groom exclusive access to the private suites to try on a variety of pre-selected suits. No trawling around shops, just an enjoyable, productive day. And if a ready to wear option doesn’t quite fit the bill, Sammy will be able to make personal introductions to some of the country’s finest tailors and cutters who can design and create a one-off, bespoke suit.
But more exciting is what they have in store for the day before the wedding. You boys check in and make the most of all the hotel facilities including a visit to Gentlemen’s Tonic, the stylish barbershop. Exclusive use for just you and the guys to get preened to perfection, think traditional wet shave and all the trimmings. Then for you final feast as a single man there’s a 3-course steak dinner before retiring to the lounge for an all important nightcap to facilitate your beauty sleep.
On the morning of the wedding, in keeping with tradition, the groom’s party will enjoy an Ushers’ Brunch in The Gilbert Scott restaurant. ‘The George’ cooked breakfast, will set you all up for the day when washed down with a Bloody Mary to take the edge off any pre wedding nerves.
This sounds so good it makes us girls jealous!
