The custom of a groom, his best man and his groomsmen to rent a suit or tuxedo for weddings is a bit of a strange one to us.
If you’re getting married this spring or summer, we urge you to think about that tradition for a moment. Think about the significance of the day and what it means to you, the person you will spend your life with, your family and your friends. Then think about whether you will honour that day and its significance in the right way by wearing a rented tuxedo. It’s an outfit that’s been worn by countless others, that’s merely been altered to fit you and that you will simply hand back when the ceremony is over. It just doesn’t seem right.
Now think about this: for not a lot more than the cost of some rentals, you could celebrate your wedding in a tailored suit made of fabric that you choose, designed to your specifications and perfectly fitted to you. Oh, and you’ll be able to keep it forever.
So you can get married a “rental” that you’ll never see again, or invest in a high-quality, stylish, custom-made suit.
In case you need more convincing, here are a few more points to consider:
You Get All the Flexibility in Styles as You Do With a Rental
Sometimes grooms rent because they think they can’t get a custom-made suit in the style they want. But whether you are looking for the traditional elegance of a Morning Suit, a formal Tuxedo or the latest slim-fit fashions, you can have it made especially for you and your wedding.
Get the Whole Party in on the Action
Whether you wear nothing but tailored suits, or you’ve never had the pleasure, this is a special event that calls for special outfits – for you, your Best Man and all the Groomsmen.
How many suits in your closet right now can you look at and say “that’s the suit I got married in.” If there is any one time that calls for a tailored suit, it’s your wedding day.
But Don’t Dally. Especially if you’re getting married in spring or early summer, you should start planning your tailored wedding suit as soon as possible to avoid rushing through what is a very important and meaningful process.
