Brides conduct all types of research when it comes to shopping for their wedding dress. But how much time is devoted to finding the right tuxedo for their grooms? Admittedly, not much, right? After all, he just has to show up for wedding. Actually, grooms should take some time to consider what they want to wear (it’s their big day, too!). They might be surprised to learn they will have some questions regarding their own attire as well as that of their wedding party. Therefore, to help grooms get started on their own formalwear journey to their wedding, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions we hear at black tie BY LORI.
How long before my wedding should I register the men’s attire?
Make sure you allow enough time for your groomsmen to be measured and to submit those measurements with the order. Ordering within three weeks of your wedding will incur rush fees and risk the chance that the styles you want are not available.
My wedding is in Atlanta, but my groomsmen are out of town. How will they place their order?
I have children in my wedding. Do you have small sizes for ring bearers? How much do they cost?
Our rentals start at size 2T, plus we offer children’s sizes for sale with prices starting at $79.
I like the slim fit tuxedo, but not all of my groomsmen are slender. How will that look?
It will look great because the coats are made proportionately for larger guys so you can get the same look for all of your guys.
Some of my groomsmen have their own tuxedos. Can they just rent accessories?
Yes, they can, but we strongly recommend you have your wedding party rent the same tuxedo to ensure a cohesive look at your wedding.
Do you have the color vest and tie to match the bridesmaid dresses?
Yes, we have more than 200 color combinations with 42 colors online. However, we suggest neutral accessories that coordinate with the color you have chosen. Sometimes a pocket square or boutonnière is all that is needed for that subtle pop of color.
Of course, these are just a few of the questions we answer every day. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 404.252.8767, ext. 210. We want to make you look and feel as good as your bride!
