First of all let us stress once again that you not wait to start looking for your wedding tuxedo. So, where do you begin in this all important search? Your first action should be to ask your friends, family and coworkers if they have any experience finding and buying or renting a tuxedo. Hopefully, you can get a great tip on a tuxedo shop this way. There are a few other sources that you could check as well. If you have hired any of your wedding vendors, you could ask them if they have any recommendations for you. Searching online can also be a great wealth of information. From these three sources, you should be able to garner a list of potential tuxedo shops that you can check out. Call each one and setup a date and time that you can visit the shop and have a chat about your tuxedo needs and even try on a few from their inventory.
Take a picture of your fiance's bridal gown with you on each site visit. One thing we should tackle a bit with you is the old rental versus buy debate. There are many pros to renting a tuxedo. First of all it is much more affordable to rent. It is also a better way to go when you need to match up with someone or something. If you don't plan on going to another formal affair in 10 years, renting is the way to go. When you go on your site visits, have an idea of what you like in terms of style and shade. You want to immediately try to build a relationship with one of the shop's very knowledgeable consultants. They can truly be your best friend if you get a really good one. We suggest that you mention your budget immediately. You don't want your consultant bringing out a lot of tuxedos that there is no way that you can afford. Ask the consultant if they update their inventory very often. How much experience does the staff have. Are they knowledgeable in all things tuxedo.
Another very important person in this search is a talented tailor. They are truly the ones who will make you look amazing inside of your tuxedo. You also want to work with a place that has expert tailors because your tuxedo might go through as many as three alterations. Make sure that you ask the shop how experienced their tailors are. After all of your visits, you will need to decide which shop rose above the rest. When you feel a comfort level with one in particular, it is time to go and pick out that perfect tuxedo for you.
