Guys, it’s time to talk about what to wear for the big day. Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life, and it’s essential that you feel and look great. Even if you don’t dress up often, your wedding is the perfect opportunity to show off your style and personality.
When it comes to wedding attire, grooms and wedding parties generally choose between renting or buying. How can you tell which option is best for you?
Should You Rent or Buy a Suit/Tux for Your Wedding?
At The Modern Groom, we’ve seen more than a few grooms face the decision of renting or buying. One of the main reasons people consider renting is because of the cost. But is it more affordable to rent or buy?
The easy answer is that if you want to wear a high-quality suit or tux repeatedly, it is significantly cheaper to buy.
While prices vary based on quality and brand, a tuxedo rental typically costs between $100-$250 for one-time use, and a suit rental can cost up to $100. A slimmer fit suit rental can cost more than $250. Our wedding suit and tux packages start at $210, and that includes the jacket, vest, and pants. You get a personalized and styled suit or tux to wear for as long as you want. No need to stress over return dates and late fees—that suit or tux is yours.
Don’t Get Boxed Into a Suit or Tux Others Have Worn
Anyone who rents a suit or tux should consider the fact that someone else just wore the same suit or tux a week prior—and chances are they weren’t the first to wear it. This is your wedding. Do you really want to wear a rental that has been worn time and time again?
Additionally, rental suits and tuxes often look boxy and oversized because they aren’t fit or tailored. Rentals follow a “close enough” fit criteria and, as a result, are notoriously big and baggy.
We don’t think that’s good enough for your wedding day. That’s precisely why we got out of the rental business years ago with the brick-and-mortar stores of our brother brand. The ladies get custom-altered dresses and gowns, so why shouldn’t guys get the same treatment?
Find Your Style
You may not know which button on the jacket or shirt sleeves you’re supposed to button, but that’s why we are here. Your dedicated virtual stylist wants nothing more than to help you look sharp! From the style and color of the suit or tux to the accessories and everything in between, we help with every step of the process to ensure everything matches your individual style.
Rentals are often generic and boring because they are produced in masses to appeal to the masses. They all fit the same cookie-cutter mold. You deserve better than that.
We have a suit or tux for everyone. Slim cut, athletic, tall, it doesn’t matter! We can help anyone, from someone who is most comfortable in the boardroom to someone who spends most of his time in jeans and a T-shirt.
A Fit to Go the Distance
No rental will fit as well as a suit or tux that is professionally fit for you. Not only will your suit or tux accentuate your best features, but you don’t have to return it by 11 AM the next day (which, honestly, is THE WORST) or ship it back. It’s yours to keep wearing again and again for as long as you want so you can look great at every big event for years to come.
Nobody wants to work with pushy or clueless salespeople. With The Modern Groom, your virtual stylist will assist you right from home and help you find the right suit or tux. The process is seamless: Meet with a virtual professional to choose your style, we ship it to you, and if you approve once you try it on, the suit or tux is yours forever.
Once we are sure you love the fit and style, we’ll turn our attention to the guys in your wedding party and give them the same great customer service. There’s no better way to ensure you and your groomsmen are fully equipped with matching, great-looking suits.
