Finding the Right Tuxedo for Your Wedding

There are many occasions that call for a formal suit, but the single most important time you’ll ever wear a tuxedo is on your wedding day. Your bride-to-be will certainly steal the show when she walks down the aisle and takes her place beside you at the altar, but that doesn’t mean you should limit yourself to any old tuxedo. There are a lot of great places in New York City to find an amazing tuxedo, including bespoke tailor Mohan’s Custom Tailors, but how do you know which one will help you look and feel your best? Here are some tips to help you find the right tuxedo for your wedding.

Buy a Tuxedo, Don’t Rent One Tuxedo for Your Wedding

The first bit of advice to keep in mind is that while you might save money right now by renting a tuxedo, you will look and feel much better in a custom-tailored tuxedo at this unique event. Even if you buy an off-the-rack tuxedo, at least you can have it tailored beyond the minor alterations that are made when you rent one. Buying a tuxedo now also means you can avoid the hassle and the cost of renting multiple tuxedos in the future for other occasions.

Dress Appropriately for the Theme

There are a lot of different styles of tuxedos to choose from, and more choices if you decide to have a tuxedo custom made. You want to be sure that your tuxedo is in-keeping with the theme of your wedding, so make sure you are able to communicate the theme with your tailor prior to going in and discussing your new tuxedo.

Ask Your Bride-to-Be

You might not be able to see your bride’s wedding dress until the wedding day, but she can certainly help you pick out your tuxedo. Your fiancé can also help you design or pick out your new tuxedo to complement her dress (without actually giving you a peek at what it looks like).

Go Custom

At Mohan Custom Tailors, we see your wedding as one of the most important moments of your life, and feel that the way to look your absolute best at this unique milestone is with a bespoke-tailored tuxedo. Formal doesn’t have to mean stuffy or restrictive. When you work with us to customize your tuxedo and tuxedo shirt, you have complete freedom to show off your personal style by choosing from a variety of fits, fabrics and details. We also have a series of packages, at or near the cost of buying off-the-rack, for complete custom tuxedos, custom shirts and other wear for your special day.
