tuxedo rental basics

Unless you already happen to own a tuxedo, odds are you'll end up renting one for your wedding day. Wedding tuxedo rentals can seem tricky, but as long as you follow a few basic rules, you can guarantee a look worthy of any James Bond flick. First, decide whether you want to rent or buy your tux. Tuxedo and suit prices generally begin in the $300 to $500 range, and renting a wedding tuxedo can cost 10 to 30 percent of that. If you attend three to four formal events per year, however, purchasing a tux or formalwear can save you money in the long run. For those going the rental route, it is important to choose the right place to rent your formalwear. Make sure the rental shop updates their inventory regularly (if every suit you see if powder blue with ruffles, it's probably best to move on to the next shop). Next, the dealer should know how to measure you correctly and offer a fitting prior to the wedding. You might also be able to purchase any and all wedding tuxedo accessories you may need in the shop, including bow ties, cummerbunds, suspenders, shoes, and so on. Finally, you should also talk your groomsmen into getting their attire from the same tuxedo rental shop to ensure a cohesive look -- you might even get a discount for renting as a group. You can find plenty of great wedding tuxedo rental shops in our local resource guide. And remember: Reserve your tuxedos and formalwear at least three months in advance to ensure that they have your sizes in stock.
