A Trio of Crucial Tuxedo Tips
The wedding day is the groom’s time to shine just as much as it is the bride’s. Choosing the right tuxedo to wear will allow him to play his role to the fullest in the co-starring production that is the wedding day.
Here are three key tuxedo-related tips that can make a big difference on the big day.
1) The most important factor is the fit.
Understand that no tux is trendy or classy enough to make the groom look good if it is ill-fitting. To ensure that you get a precise fit, have your measurements taken professionally. The Tuxedo Department staff at New York Bride & Groom know all the ins and outs of measuring for a great fit and always make certain that’s what you get. In other words, relax — we’ve got this!
2) The tux has to complement the dress.
This not only means matching the color but also matching the style as well. In other words, don’t choose a 1930’s gangster-inspired tux with matching fedora if your fiance’s dress is modern and chic. One quick color tip: If the dress is white, be sure your shirt is also white and not ivory. An ivory shirt can make a white dress look yellowed in photos. Our staff will be happy to help you coordinate your garments if you’d like.
3) Don’t wear your cousin’s tux from 10 years ago.
Styles change, so even if the fit is fine and the color works, you won’t look your best in a tux with an outdated cut and silhouette. This is never a problem with us because all of our tuxes come from the top designers, including Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Stephen Geoffrey, Tony Bowls, Andrew Fezza, Perry Ellis, Jean Yves and more. You’ll always be on-trend when you rent from us.
Don’t forget that we stock a full range of tuxedo samples for you to inspect. You can actually feel the material, precisely appraise the colors and even see side-by-side how your suit choices match with her wedding dress. After going through this process, you will be able to place your tuxedo order with New York Bride & Groom with full confidence.
