Opt for a Men’s Suit for Your Wedding to Save!
Not until groomsmen everywhere realize they are spending nearly $200 to wear a rented tuxedo for 8 hours will suits replace the ubiquitous and timeless tuxedo. But in these thrifty economic times, bridal parties are increasingly outfitting their groomsmen in matching suits rather than the standard tuxedo. The benefits of doing so are worth outlining here:
1) Get a suit for life! Spend the same amount or slightly more ($200+) and the groomsmen get a suit they can keep, as opposed to a tuxedo for a few hours.
2) Deals for buying in bulk! Cash is king for retailers right now and the potential to sell multiple suits in one transaction is enough leverage to work some killer deals on your groomsmen’s suits. If your Dads, uncles, or little brothers need some new threads as well, get them in on the action too. It’s not unusual for a single wedding to be purchasing as much as a dozen new suits… collaborate and save big!
3) Mixing it up! Add variety to your bridal party lineup by selecting unconventional suit styles and colors. The diversity of suits available concurrently allows for more matching variety with bridesmaids as well.
4) Accessorize! Different shirt/tie/cufflink/shoe combinations allow for greater customization as well!
The obvious challenges to arranging group suit purchasing include getting everyone sized properly and in consistent color, especially if the men are coming from out-of-town. However, opting for suits for your groomsmen can provide an affordable and creative alternative to the conventional tuxedo that can leave an impression long after your wedding day.
