When grooms first start looking for wedding tuxedos Southern Wisconsin, they are faced with two options: to rent, or to buy? While buying a tuxedo will obviously cost more than renting one, how much more are they? And how much does renting a wedding tuxedo cost, anyway?
Of course, the cost of your rental tuxedo will depend on the style and the name brand that you choose. Tuxedos that are manufactured by designer menswear brands will obviously be a bit more costly than those that don’t have designer labels. But in exchange, you might get higher quality fabrics and tuxedos that are a bit more durable. Buying these tuxedos could cost anywhere from $300 to thousands of dollars, depending on the type and style. Renting them however, will only cost usually about 10 to 30 per cent of that price. This could make renting a better option for those that don’t have many occasions for which they can wear their new tux.
So how do you know when to buy your tuxedo? Buying a tux is a good investment if you have more three or four formal occasions that you attend each and every year. The cost will equal out to be worth the initial price, rather than renting for each individual event; and you’ll have a beautiful piece in your wardrobe that will last you for several years to come – and maybe even a lifetime!
