What do you want to wear for your wedding? Looking back on my wedding day, all I could think about is how good a salesman I am. I convinced her to go out with me, she said “yes”, when I proposed, and now get hitched in front of God, family & friends.
If you haven’t seen the show “Say Yes to the Dress”, brides to be, try on an eternity of dresses and then scream out the shows tagline. I didn’t go that far. As we changed our venue from outdoors to indoors, I had an option of wearing a suit or tuxedo. With the amount of black tie events I would attend this year, I chose to rent rather than buy. I decided to visit The Black Tux in NYC to see what fabrics & options to choose from.
The Black Tux allows you to either enter your measurements on its website, or visit one of their fit specialists in showrooms. What I loved about this rental experience, was the a la carte way of ordering. My options ranged from the entire outfit, to the individual pieces, such as bow ties, shirts, stud sets. Since I only needed a tuxedo, I chose the navy peak lapel tuxedo, as I didn’t want to wear something traditional. When it’s time for your big day, whether you buy or rent, do your research, and enjoy the moment.
