Timeline & Price Guide
Plan to go shopping for your suit or tuxedo three to six months before your wedding day. Go solo, bring your fiancée, or invite someone whose style opinion you admire. While you can bring your groomsmen, we advise against that for the initial shopping trip. Having too many opinions can lead you down the wrong clothing aisle. Decide whether you will be buying or renting your groom wedding attire. There are benefits to both rental and purchase! However, tuxedo rental cost tends to be the more affordable and all-inclusive option. The average price for rentals ranges from $150 to $220, which includes coat, pants, shirt, vest, neckwear, shoes, stud and cufflink sets.
Before heading out the door, jot down the exact wedding date, venue, dress code, color palette and theme. These details will help you coordinate your attire with the wedding vibe and your fiancée. Once you’ve selected your attire you can send your groomsmen into the rental store for their outfits and measurements. One month before the wedding return to the store for a final fitting.
