Wedding Tux Shopping at Friar Tux

Wedding Tux Shopping at Friar Tux | A Good Hue

I’m not sure what’s worse– shopping in a toy store with a screaming toddler or tux with three grown men. Kidding! (Sort of…) A few weeks ago, Steve, his best man and one of his groomsmen headed to a nearby Friar Tux shop to get fitted for their wedding day suits– so exciting! As a bride  I want my groom to look as handsome as possible but I also want him to feel confident and comfortable in what he’s wearing as he walks down that aisle… it’s his day too, after all! 

Continue reading for a few tips I picked up along the way when shopping for wedding tuxes and suits.

Wedding Tux Shopping at Friar Tux | A Good Hue1. When shopping for your wedding tuxedos and suits, it’s a good idea to have some sort of an idea of what you want before going in. You can browse styles online or look at Pinterest for inspiration. Before our initial appointment, I knew that I didn’t want a black tux (too formal), beige (not dressy enough) or navy (not our style).

Luckily Steve was open to what I wanted (read: he knew it was futile to put up a fight) and we were able to pick out a look that we both loved.

By knowing what we didn’t want, the process went a lot quicker and smoother. Friar Tux has many options to choose from and your associate will help you find the perfect one!

2. Get measured! Friar Tux made sure that all the groomsmen came in to get measured and fitted by a certain date. This is a MUST. You want to suits to fit correctly and look good. No one should be walking down the aisle in droopy, baggy pants.

One thing I was worried with renting tuxes was that the quality wouldn’t be great or the styles wouldn’t be up-to-date. I was so wrong! Friar Tux has some really good quality suits for rent (we went with a Michael Kors suit) with modern fits, cuts and styles. I was very impressed with the styles and different options.

3. Coordinate the tux style with your bridal party. All of my bridesmaids will be wearing different colored dresses and we wanted ties to match each maids’ color. Friar Tux has plenty of color options when it comes to ties so matching was no problem! 

For Steve, we decided to put him in a different tie to differentiate himself from the groomsmen, and to match my dress.

4. Trust your associate! Once you give your Friar Tux associate your wedding specifics, they’re great at offering suggestions for looks, the best styles and cuts for your body and making sure you have everything you need before the big day. Remember, they dress a LOT of people for weddings and events and will have the best answers to all your burning wedding tux questions. 

Friar Tux gave us a call a few weeks out to check-in, verify the color of the accessories and to pickup details. So far, I’ve been very impressed with their excellent customer service!

    I remember when my husband and I were on the hunt for his wedding attire! He wound up not wearing a tux or even a suit. He wore his golf gear! 😉

    Looks like they have such a wonderful selection. I’ll certainly have to look for a place near us. I don’t know if we have one as I’ve never heard of the place. I hope so though!

    Great picks! This reminds me of the day when my husband was trying a tux for his daughter’s wedding . He wore tux on our wedding too, but I had no idea until our wedding day. He surprised me. 🙂

    Looks like a nice place to shop for a tux. It has been many years since we shopped for our wedding! It’s good to know where to go.

    These are such great tips! I recommend having a wedding planner, or appoint a member of your bridal party like the Best Man, for picking up and returning the tuxes.. So that it’s one less thing you need to worry about!
