Renting a wedding tuxedo is a foolproof way to look handsome and classic on the big day. For men who are unsure whether they want to dole out the cash to purchase their own tux, renting is a good, cost-conscious way to go. Buying and tailoring a suit or tuxedo especially for a wedding is a tedious and expensive path to go down. Tuxedo rental companies have the latest in formalwear fashion, and have unlimited options when it comes to cut, color, and size. Whether the groom is planning on a beige linen suit for beach nuptials or traditional coat and tails for a black-tie event, tuxedo rental companies have it all.
The first point of order a groom should follow after coming to the decision to rent a tuxedo is to find a rental company that updates its inventory regularly. If there are powder blue ruffled confections anywhere, the store is stuck in a different era, and a polished, modern man is best advised to run quickly to another store. A good formalwear store will know how to take proper measurements of a man’s inseam, waist, and jacket size, and will follow up with a final fitting before the wedding. This is the most important part in renting a tuxedo, fit is key. Nothing is worse than a groom in a tux that is too boxy in the shoulders, long in the sleeves, and baggy in the leg.
The tuxedo shop dealer should also listen to what the groom is looking for. On his big day a man may have an ingrained image of how he wants to look, and that may include anything from a classic waistcoat with tails to a five button, all white tuxedo. If the dealer is pressuring the groom to go for an entirely different look that he is not necessarily comfortable with, then the store is probable not the right place to rent a wedding tuxedo.
The right tuxedo rental company should be able to supply a groom with all of the accessories he will need to complete the look on the big day. The proper bow tie, cummerbund, cufflinks, suspenders, and even shoes are all important aspects of achieving a flawless ensemble. With all of these components the groom should feel like a million bucks and like a modern day James Bond. If the groom was pleased with the service afforded him at his chosen tuxedo rental place and the overall outcome of his tux, then he should have his groomsmen rent their tuxedos from the same store. This will ensure that all of the men in the wedding will be looking sharp on the big day, and it may even come with a group discount. The one thing grooms need to remember is to reserve his and his groomsmen’s tuxes at least three months in advance.
