Tuxedo's Formal Wear and Accessories for Weddings
For the groom and his wedding party and any prom goer, Modern Tux offers the finest selection of the most current styles in formal wear. We do lots of wedding party tuxedo rentals every year. We'll make the process quite simple for you.
(a value of $20-35!). This is for a limited time only and could be over quickly.
For weddings, with five paid tuxedo rentals get the sixth one free!
So what's the process?
First you need to decide what style coat, vest, shirt, shoes etc., you and your fiancé want. See our tuxedo101 page for some guidance as to how to think about this decision. We then will enter your choices into our computer system. There will be no problem if you should decide to change something in the future as we will just change what is in the computer system which will then automatically update everything.
Generally, if you are getting married around May or June you should come in to pick styles in late December or January. This is because May and June are also Prom months, and styles could get fully booked out -- throughout the entire industry, not just us!
We have lots of grooms that find it very convenient to come in the week after Christmas to pick styles for their upcoming weddings the next year. They may have groomsmen that are in town for Christmas that they can get in to be measured at that time. The key thing is to allow the groomsmen ample time to get measured whether they live around the area or are from out-of-town.
If you are getting married in July, August, or any month thereafter we still recommend you come in after Christmas or during January. That way, you have the best pick of styles and you give your groomsmen plenty of time to get their measurements to us. Again, it is possible to change styles if need be.
Truthfully, you could come in a couple of days before your wedding and we most likely would be able to suit up your entire wedding party. But that puts a big and unnecessary strain on everyone. If you are really a last minute person, we probably can even suit you up the morning of the wedding (it has happened once in our ten years of business) but that can get expensive.
We will keep track of who has gotten measurements and deposits in and who has not leaving you to worry about other more important things like where to play golf before the wedding rehearsal dinner. Your groomsmen can come in any time to be measured.
Have out of town groomsmen? NO PROBLEM. All they have to do is go to a reputable formal wear store and get measured. Most will do it for free or a very minimal amount. Then they simply mail, fax, email, or fill out our form on this website their measurements and we will have their tuxedo ready for pickup when they come into town.
Something to think about: Some large nationwide tuxedo chains promote your groomsmen getting their actual tuxedo in their hometown. Think about it, though, they then have to schlep their tuxedo across the country and perhaps even have to pay extra as a carry on. Their tuxedo may be creased and in need of being pressed. None of that is necessary!
Two days before the wedding, we'll have the tuxedos at the store for try on. We highly recommend having your party come in as soon as they can to try everything on. That way, we know everything will be right and comfortable come the wedding day! We'll adjust anything that needs to be adjusted at that time.
After the wedding, you can appoint a person to bring back all the tuxedos, or each groomsmen can bring back their own. Whatever the case, it is very helpful to everyone involved to have the tuxedos hanging back on their hangers and be identifiable -- we will thoroughly check them back in and can't tell you how many times we have found wallets, cash, sun glasses and other items in pockets. If we find something of value, we need to be able to tell who it belongs to!
That's about it. We do this for our living and have gotten the process down pat.
