There are many different formal events where a tuxedo should be worn by the male attendants. These events include weddings, homecomings, proms, after hours parties, religious ceremonies, vacation events and much more. If you are getting married, you should avoid opting for a clever, cutesy themed wedding and instead have one that is classic and simple.
Obviously, you can still inject your personality into it. Decades from now, you do not want your wedding photographs to appear corny and passe. Do not confuse formal with mundane. After the ceremony, you can still let your hair down, whilst being impeccably attired. Suffice to say, on your big day, you do not want to look anything but your best. Your wife to be will look amazing in her dress, so you should look equally amazing in your tuxedo.
Unless you are holding your wedding on a Hawaiian beach, your nicest pair of Bermuda shorts will not be appropriate wedding day attire. In all likelihood, you will want to dress formally for the ceremony. If you regularly attend black tie events, you might already own a tuxedo. However, otherwise, the question facing most grooms is whether to buy or rent a tux.
Your budget will largely determine your choice of wedding formal wear. A Kennesaw tuxedo rental shop will charge about ten to thirty percent of the value of a new tux. Tux prices start in the $300.00 to $500.00 range. Buying a tux might be worthwhile, if you attend a few formal events each year. Think of it like an investment — a tux can be worn for years, without ever going out of fashion. However, if black tie events are not your usual stomping ground, go for tuxedo rental. Undoubtedly, this is the cheapest, easiest option available. If you are going to rent, you should bear the following advice in mind when selecting your wedding ensemble.
Pick a Kennesaw tuxedo rental store that regularly updates its’ range of tuxedos. If you notice powder blue with ruffles, take your custom elsewhere. A reputable formal wear supplier will understand how to correctly measure you (jacket size, waist, inseam), and offer you a tux fitting ahead of your big day.
The supplier should take your preferences on board. If you want a trendy outfit, such as a five button, dark blue mandarin collar tuxedo, but the dealer recommends a silver tuxedo with tails, you will know that you are in the wrong store. Politely decline and move on. Also, the dealer ought to be capable of supplying you with the tuxedo accessories you need: cummerbund, bow tie, suspenders, shoes and cufflinks.
Lastly, ensure that all the groomsmen obtain their tuxedos from the same store, so you will match perfectly. You might even get a discount from the store if you do this. If the groomsmen live in other areas of the country, request that they visit a local tailor and have their measurements sent to your store. Book their wedding tuxes several months ahead of time.
