Rembrandt’s director, Elias Boumelhem, says the company’s motto is “Cut, cloth, character”. According to Elias, “We focus on making the groom look his best, which you could say is just as much for the bride as it is for the groom himself. Our strength is the fact that we fit all shapes and sizes. So when you have a bridal party of all different sizes, we are unmatched when it comes to fit, fabric choice and price.” Being the manufacturer as well as the retailer, Rembrandt can be more flexible, affordable and timely than a standard suit shop.

Can You Break The Fashion Rules On Your Wedding Day?
Never before have you lived in an era where you can more perfectly break those fashion rules. Yet if you're going to break them, you need to make sure that you do it with grace. Wedding fashions are always going to evolve and nothing says that more than a wedding dress with a difference! Dita Von Teese is a classic alternative fashion example... when she purple corsetted it and Gwen Steffani also when she went and dip dyed it pink.

So there's another question out there regarding wedding fashion that I'm sure you're all absolutely dying to know.

Why Do Brides Wear White?
Now there's a question! And you may be surprised to learn that it's probably a more recent fashion tradition than maybe you first realized. One rainy British Saturday in February, 1840, Queen Victoria and her Prince Charming (and cousin) Albert became betrothed in holy matrimony. Somewhat unusually, she chose to wear white to say “I do” instead of the royal fashion choice of silver. In that era, it was only the richer upper classes that would purchase a wedding dress for the day, and it would be blue or yellow. Normal folk would fashion their plain old Sunday best to their nuptuals. Queen Victoria's white dress signified the absolute ultimate in richesse and luxury and she was a true fashion setter. From that day forward the fashion of white wedding dresses became standard.
