Get Groomed: Renting Or Buying For The Big Day
One of the biggest decisions to make about the groom and groomsmen's apparel is choosing whether you want to rent or buy. There are benefits to either choice, ultimately the decision rests on what kind of investment you want to make. Once you‘ve narrowed down the style and colour that you'd like the groom and groomsmen to wear, it should be easy to make a choice. Rental options typically come in black, a light and a charcoal grey, and navy blue, if you’ve hoping to find something in a specialty colour, such as brown or green, you’ll probably be restricted to purchasing.
One of the biggest things to consider is if you want to add a suit to your wardrobe. For grooms and groomsmen who don't have a good suit or tux in their wardrobe and expect to need one in the future, purchasing their suits might be a smart choice. If you're choosing to wear suits for the wedding, purchasing a three piece suit could be a smart investment for your groomsmen； for men lacking a good suit in their wardrobe, a having a suit with a vest gives them great basics that they can mix and match in the future. Another benefit of purchasing a suit in the increased options for tailoring； although rental options offer a good fit, purchasing a suit allows the buyer to make fine alterations that greatly improve the look and fit of a suit.
However, if they already have several suits in their wardrobe, purchasing something really similar to things they already own isn't necessarily worthwhile. It's possible to find great suits for purchase at a wide range of prices, from entry level to high end, but if budget is a consideration you may want to consider renting. Rental packages include all of the pieces that you need for your look, including suit, vest, tie, pocket square, button studs, shoes and more included in one price. Choosing to rent offers more flexibility with sizing, the wider range of sizing in rental styles makes it easier to fit a wide range of bodies, you‘ll be less restricted by cut. Going this route also makes choosing accessories within your wedding's theme simple, a large selection of vests and ties in a full range of colours ensures that you’ll find the perfect style. Renting is also a smart choice for destination wedding apparel, unless you live somewhere with an appropriate climate, you likely won't get much wear out of it after the wedding!
A common decision for many wedding parties is to have the groom purchase his suit or tux while the groomsmen rent theirs. This allows the groom to find a great suit for himself and have it tailored to a perfect fit. Once the wedding day is over, he'll have an amazing addition to his wardrobe that will bring back special memories every time he wears it.
