Like many other people, you might be thinking that all tuxedos are the same—that you can walk into any Anaheim tuxedo rental shop, pick a tuxedo for your wedding and go home happy. Sorry to disappoint you but that is not how it is.
As the groom, you need extra effort to bring out your style. You need to shop around, fit different outfits a couple of times, make adjustments here and there, until you get that perfect formal wear for that special day. Keep in mind that you are not only looking for your fit but also that of the groomsmen.
Here are some tips that will help you find the right wedding tuxedo:
Know your dress code
Different events call for different types of formal wear. Since you are going for a wedding, you should rent a tux that suits the setting of your event. Discuss with your bride in advance on the dressing you would like. For example, tails would not do well in a beach wedding.
Your groomsmen’s locations
If not all your groomsmen hail from Anaheim, it is best if you picked a shop that has outlets in different parts. Most tux shops allow customers picking and dropping tuxedos at their branches in different cities. If all your groom party is renting from one shop, you may get a discount.
Arrange for fitting
Schedule a date to fit your tuxedos. Gauge the level of comfort and freedom of movement while wearing the tux. You will be in that outfit for close to 10 hours. Therefore, make sure you get a tux that is comfortable. Also, make sure you are comfortable in the midsection.
Look for a reliable tux shop
Not all tuxedo shops in Anaheim are the same. Some shops do not have great tux while others lack variety. Don’t be in a hurry to buy a tux, unless you are doing things the last minute. Take time to find a reputable shop that offers excellent service. For example, you are likely to get a good tux from a shop that has a wide selection of in-store inventory. Ask for recommendations from your groomsmen and any other people you know that have rented tuxedos before.
Never postpone your tux search
For your wedding day, absolutely nothing should ruin the occasion—not even a delay in reserving or picking up your tuxedo. Place your tuxedo order at least months before your wedding day. Gather your groomsmen’s exact measurements in advance and take a trip to the tux shop. Place an order as soon as you get the perfect fit for you and the groomsmen.
As the groom and center of attraction, you should stand out from the rest of the crowd and bridal party. Add simple but classy details like a vest, cufflinks, tie or cummerbund to stand out from the groomsmen. The store you pick should have a wide selection of accessories that will match your tux.
Following the tips above will help you get the perfect tuxedo that will make your dream wedding come true.
