Q. Is it better to rent a tux or buy one? What are the pros/cons?A. Renting wedding-day attire is no longer any more acceptable for a groom than it would be for his bride. Most tuxedo rental companies only tailor the sleeves of the jacket and the bottoms of the pants, so they tend to fit poorly. By purchasing your tuxedo or suit, you invest in a piece that will last you for many events to come and be custom-made to fit you perfectly in every possible way. It is also next to impossible to personalize a rented look. After all, it has likely been worn by dozens of grooms at dozens of other weddings before being worn by you. The thing to remember is that a groom's attire is no longer a uniform, it is meant to be unique to his personality and the personality of the event.
