Seeking a Wedding TuxedoYour first option when seeking a tuxedo is to inquire with the bridal wear shop where your bride-to-be has been shopping. They may already provide tuxedo services, or they can recommend the local shops they often refer couples to. Some tuxedo shops will also be able to fit tuxedos for boys, which takes care of suiting up your little ring bearer. If you're renting or buying two or more tuxedos (even if one is for a child) and adding on a bunch of accessories like a bow tie, cummerbund, vest, shoes, socks, or cuff links, make sure to ask the shop's salesperson about discounts for buying so many items. Make sure the salesperson is straightforward about pricing and what services are included because a tuxedo will need accessories, tailoring, and maintenance. Most shops won't charge hemming fees unless major alterations are needed. Many grooms-to-be will end up purchasing a tuxedo, while groomsmen just coming into town may opt to rent one. Either way, make sure you ask the tuxedo shop about "damages," or what happens when you spill red wine on your white button-up shirt.
Suiting up in OregonDepending on your style, budget, and the location of your Oregon wedding, your men's formal wear decisions may vary. For example, if you're like many Oregon couples who've chosen an Oregon coast location to hold your big day, you'll be needing a classy yet not-so-formal style as you walk along the beach. Perhaps your wedding will take place not on the sand, but from the resort grounds, where a more classic and formal look would be more appropriate. Check out the options at your coastal Coos Bay Checkerberries store, where you'll find lots of elegant looks, whether you're walking along the beach in a sandy-colored suit with flip flops or having a ball at a historic hotel or church, where you may want to opt for a full-vested tuxedo in shades of black, gray and silver.
If you're wondering about the nuances of tuxedos, like how many buttons to choose for your single-breasted jacket and which of them should stay unbuttoned, check out AHFashion.com, where their knowledgeable suit and tuxedo experts can tell you about everything from choosing a single or a double breasted suit based on your body type to picking a classic or a modern style. Most men argue that the fit of the tuxedo is the most important aspect of finding the right tuxedo, though your budget will also play a part in your decision. Even a large Oregon city like Medford really only has about three or four shops to choose from, so do yourself a favor and check into several local shops. Certain shops are more rental-oriented and may be selling rental-quality tuxes, while other stores will be more apt to order you a nice wool-fibered suit that will last for decades or specialty tuxedos that may not be in the store. Popular formal wear shops like Medford's Tuxedo Den in the local mall can provide you with suits starting at only one hundred dollars, but they can order specialty suits that cost several hundred dollars more, depending on the material it's made of, the designer and the popularity of the cut. When ordering a tux, make sure to ask about the details behind its arrival and make sure to order early because you don't want to risk having to re-order a certain piece or a new pant size at the last minute.
