Most weddings are centered around what the bride will wear. There is a plethora of information online about wedding dresses, makeup, accessories and shoes. However, the attire of the groom and ushers is very important too. Typically, what the groom and his attendants wear to a wedding varies, depending on what time of day the wedding is held. For formal weddings that are held in the evening, a tuxedo is necessary.
The groomsmen, father of the bride and groom should all visit a Roseville tuxedo rental shop, to find out what kind of attire is available. Lots of men are unaware of how many decisions are involved in selecting a tuxedo or wedding suit. You will have to choose between double breasted and single breasted jackets, notched, shawl and peaked collars, vests and cummerbunds, and bow ties, casual ties and ascot ties (i.e. double knot ties that have the ends folded over).
Furthermore, it is essential that the attire of the male attendees coordinates with that of the bridesmaids and bride. Thus, you should ensure that you know precisely what the women will wear, and what colors have been selected. Take a photo of the dresses, or a fabric sample.
Unless you regularly attend formal events, it is best to rent your formal wear, rather than buy it. Renting a tuxedo in Roseville is easy because they stock a large range of wedding attire. Better still, these stores will carry out any necessary adjustments to rented suits. Nonetheless, prior to renting anything, you should check that you are aware of what the rental package includes. Find out whether you have to purchase the vest and/or cummerbund, and whether the shoes, shirts and ties are included. Be sure to get a written document that specifies precisely what the store will provide.
Roughly three months prior to the wedding, all of the men (including the groom) should get their measurements done for their suits. The groom should use only one store to make all of the rental arrangements. Usually, rental items can be collected twenty-four to forty-eight hours ahead of time.
Carefully examine the tuxedos/suits before you take them out of the store. Check for any snags, cigarette burns, rips or stains. Everyone should try on their tuxedos to ensure that they fit correctly, and that the jacket sleeves and pants are the right length. While doing this, make sure that you wear the footwear you will wear to the wedding. Check the collar and cuffs for frayed fabric, and check that the jackets do not have any missing buttons.
Normally, once the wedding is over, the best man returns both his suit and the suit worn by the groom to the rental store within one business day. Groomsmen are expected to return their own tuxedos, also within one business day, to circumvent any late fees. Typically, minor beverage or food stains can be easily removed. Nonetheless, if a tuxedo is significantly damaged, be ready for the repair bill. This is why you should always be careful at weddings.
