Ready to say "I do"? How about adding even more style to your big day with £3,315 worth of prizes from some of the UK's leading wedding, fashion and male grooming companies?
This year the competition has been put together by a selection of leading brands.
Bespoke wedding suit (worth £500)
It was Shakespeare who wrote "Clothes maketh the man." We can only assume he'd seen a bespoke suit tailored by the team at A Suit That Fits. There certainly aren't many grooms that get to wear a bespoke suit made to their exact measurements but our lucky winner will be doing exactly that in a suit designed to make him look and feel his best. If Bill S was around today he'd probably say that clothes maketh the man, but A Suit That Fits maketh the suit.
Sunglasses for the groom's party (worth £30)
Nothing says "looking cool" like a funky pair of shades. With all the guys suited and booted those wedding photos will look even cooler with the groomsmen in matching shades. The shades are also styled to identify the key figures in the groom's party. Bridea.co.uk also supply funky solutions to adding your own personalities to the wedding day, including wedding favours, personalised sunglasses, flip flops, shot glasses, beermats and more.
Personalised shaving sets (worth £250)
Every groom wants to look smooth on the big day but Cornerstone take looking smooth to a whole new level, which is one of the many reasons last year saw 120,000 new members sign up to their customised delivery service to enjoy the Cornerstone razor. Our lucky groom will receive a customised razor, a washbag and shaving set while there will also be shaving sets for up to 6 groomsmen. You might even finally be able to talk your cousin into getting rid of that chin bush he's been sporting?!?
Wedding entertainment (worth £200)
Sorry S-club but 'there actually ain't no party like an Entertainment Nation party'. The 'nation of fun' deliver top quality bands, DJ's, duos, singers and tribute acts to all kind of events. Our lucky couple will have £200 to put towards a fantastic act at the wedding party. Will that help the groom cure his itch for a Wurzels tribute band? We're not sure but it will definitely help make it a night to remember.
The designer sock collection (15 pairs worth £169)
The London Sock Company makes the finest quality socks for the modern gentleman. Sought after by groomsmen, ushers and guests alike, not only are they hugely comfortable (on a day you'll be spending a lot of time on your feet) but also ultra-stylish.

The London Sock company also offers monthly sock subscriptions, for a gift idea that keeps on giving.
