Renting or purchasing a tuxedo can be a difficult task, especially if you do not know where to begin. That's why we've created this guide of our tips for finding the perfect wedding tux. Once you decide on what you're looking for, this task is actually pretty simple!
First, decide on if you're interested in buying a new tuxedo or renting one. Typically this decision will be dictated by your budget. Renting is the cheaper option, of course, and is a very convenient and easy process. Either way, you'll want to begin by finding local mens formal wear stores. Check out reviews for these stores and pay attention to customer feedback on things like whether or not they provide clean, tailored suits, whether they have your rentals ready on time, if the customer service is adequate, and what their prices are. If they seem like a reputable business, consider them one of your options.
Next, you'll need to call the formal wear store and schedule an appointment. Most formal wear stores will require that you rent your tuxedo 14 days in advance. If you are renting from a popular formal wear store, you will be able to return your tuxedo to any of their locations. A formal wear store will require you provide a down payment. Down payments usually range from $20-$100. You and your spouse should look on the internet or in magazines to get an idea of the type of tuxedo you wish to rent. You should bring your spouse with you when you are picking out your tuxedo. Your spouse can help you determine what color and style of tuxedo will best match their attire.
When you arrive at the formal wear store, they will size you. It is very important that your tuxedo fits properly. Fit is key when it comes to formal wear. Your jacket should reach the middle of your hand. Your trousers should reach the top of your shoes. You should have some general knowledge on the different types of tuxedos available.
You may want to purchase your tuxedo instead of renting. If you attend two or more formal events a year you will save a lot of money in the long run by purchasing a tuxedo. There are some ways you can maximize the use of your tuxedo if you decide to purchase. You can wear your tuxedo to weddings, funerals, and black tie formal events. You can take away the vest and you have a new suit for work. You can take away the jacket, wear the trousers with a button up shirt and you have a business casual look. You can wear the vest with a tee-shirt and dark-colored jeans for a trendy look. Those are just a few ways you can maximize the use of your tuxedo.
We hope this advice will be helpful when you begin the task of searching for the perfect tux! There's many great formal stores around Orlando, so you'll surely have an easy time finding just what you're looking for!
