So I'm getting married in August and want to buy a wedding suit. The only recent report I have is TU. My score is 705 with 2 inqs, 4 new accounts in the past year, zero derogs, and 70% utl. I realize that is incredibly high but I will not be able to get it under 50% for quite some time.
Do you think Nordstroms will reject me? If so, what cc should I app for that would give me a $1500 CL? Discover More? I need a wedding suit!

I got a $2000 instant approval back in late 2011 with mid 600s FICO. Haven't used the card for anything as they offer no financing promos and really crappy rewards. Spent $6k+ there over the last 2 years, all on my Amex.

+1 with lexie. Whe I applied, they pulled EQ and I'm in Boston.
FICO EQ from here was I believe 665 back then with a 4% total util. I got a $1K CL and it still sits there.

Assuming that you only intend to get married once; is renting the formal wear a possible option?
