Have you ever rented a tuxedo before? Even if you have, it might have been some time ago. And that is exactly what you will need to do for your big day that is fast approaching. There is truly nothing like a great tuxedo standing next to a gorgeous wedding gown. Let's face it, you are never going to be able to compete with your bride to be, but you can at least look as sharp as possible. In order to make this happen, you need to consider a number of factors. You also need to start investigating tuxedo rental shops in the Charlotte area. Well, you have come to the right place. We have provided you with some information that you need to be aware of as you conduct your search as well as some tools to be able to identify the perfect tuxedo shop and tuxedo for you. So, as you conduct this search, remember to never leave home without this guide.
Your first task is to find some quality tuxedo shops in the Charlotte area. Your goal should be to create a short list of shops that you will want to check out. There are a few productive ways in which you can pursue this goal. One really easy way to pursue potential candidates is by talking to your family, friends and coworkers about experiences they may have had at formalwear shops. If someone you know gives you a glowing report of a shop that has provided a very professional experience, then by all means add the name of the shop to the list that you are creating. Your wedding vendors that you already have a relationship with also might have a vendor or two that they might recommend so make sure that you check in with them. And we would be remiss if we did not advise you to use the world wide web. Do a Google search for “tuxedo rental shops in the Charlotte area.” Start checking out all of the links that you get back and determine whether you like any of the shops and what they present online. By now, you should have a number of shops to check into so you will want to setup an appointment in order to ask some questions and try on some of their inventory.
Hopefully you have started this search early enough to give you plenty of time to let the process play out. There are some definite questions that you will want to ask of each candidate. You might as well bring up your budget immediately and have a discussion about whether they will be able to work within your numbers. How long has their inventory been around? Keep in mind that some shops don't overhaul their inventory very often so you might have a style that was popular two years ago still hanging on their racks. Make sure they have the latest styles. Try on some tuxedos. Bring pictures of styles that you really like. Talk to the consultant about your body shape. Talk about the option of renting or purchasing your tuxedo. This issue can usually be solved fairly quickly by answering the question of how much you will be wearing a tux in the future. If you know that you will need a tuxedo a few more times in the next few years, by all means go ahead and purchase one. But if this will be it in terms of your tuxedo wearing days, we recommend that you rent one. But if you do decide to purchase one, just make sure that you buy one that will look trendy five years from now as well. Take your bride with you on your rounds. Getting her input is tremendously important. Will your groomsmen be wearing the exact same tuxedo? If so, talk to the consultant about having each of your groomsmen coming by to get fitted. If you have out of town groomsmen who will be coming in the day before the wedding, what do they recommend? Talk about the timetable of when everyone should do what. How experienced are their tailors? Without great tailors, you might as well walk out of the shop immediately. Much of this search will be comfort with the staff and much of it will be finding that tuxedo that you really love.
