In today’s busy world, who has time to visit a brick-and-mortar store to rent wedding attire? What’s more, members of the wedding party often live all across the country, and when that’s the case, it’s not just tough to ask everyone to meet at the same retailer to try on and order attire for the big day—it’s often impossible. That’s where online rental companies, like Generation Tux, come in handy.
Ready to start outfitting your group for the wedding day? Here, the top six things you can do to make ordering rentals so much easier for the members of your wedding party.
Streamline the Ordering Process
The biggest concern most members of the wedding party will have about ordering their suit or tuxedo rental online? Taking their own measurements. With Generation Tux, getting a perfectly-fitted outfit doesn’t require wrestling with a measuring tape. Instead, your wedding party members need to provide very basic information that they know off the top of their heads—height, weight, and jean size—and the company does the rest. Generation Tux also ensures that deliveries reach everyone in the wedding party 14 days in advance, so there’s plenty of time for replacements should there be last minute changes.
Trust us: Choosing a rental company with a streamlined ordering process will make everyone’s lives so much easier.
Curate Outfits in Advance
With an online retailer like Generation Tux, the couple has the ability to select attire that groomsmen can order with a few simple clicks. Not sure which look suits the rest of your wedding elements? Generation Tux can send free color swatches straight to your home, which means you can match them to other details, like bridesmaids’ dresses, table linens, or even your invitation suites.
Once you know what colors you like, you can start choosing styles. Whether you want everyone in a mystic blue peak lapel tuxedo, an indigo blue suit, or something else entirely, you’ll find your perfect look at Generation Tux—the company offers over 25 different Merino wool suits and tuxedos that you can mix and match with different accessories to make your own. And as soon as you’ve selected the final attire, your wedding party members will get an email telling them exactly what (and how!) to order.
Choose a Company That Caters to the Entire Group
Your wedding party is as unique as you are, so it’s important to choose a rental company that offers something for everyone. Outfit your groomsmen, fathers of the bride and groom, and ring bearers all at once! Generation Tux offers a range of sizes—from children’s 3T all the way up to 66 Long—so that everyone can order exactly what they need.
And the more you order, the better the incentives. Right now, when you outfit a group of five wedding party members, the groom can receive his rental for free; when you dress seven wedding party members, the groom gets to keep his free rental.
Coordinate Early Delivery
When you rent online, each person’s well-fitted look will arrive well ahead of the big day; traditional brick-and-mortar rental companies typically require pickup much closer to the event date. That means you’ll never have to worry about a jacket or pants being out of stock when a wedding party member needs them. And in the event something isn't right when the members of your wedding party receive their rentals, most companies will swap any items in question out for free.
Make Returns a Breeze
The last thing anyone wants to do the morning after the wedding is drive to a store to give back their rental suit or tuxedo. Online rental companies often lend out looks for longer periods of time, which gives wedding party members the freedom to make their returns when it’s convenient for them. Generation Tux ups the ante on that promise: Each rental comes with a prepaid return label, and their attire doesn’t have to be returned until three days after the event.
Choose an Online Retailer With Great Customer Service
The good news is that renting a suit or tuxedo online is pretty straightforward, but we understand that the process can feel a little daunting for both the couple and the members of the wedding party if you’re not sure where to start. That’s why it’s important to choose an online retailer with exceptional support that can guide your group throughout the entire process, answer any questions, and troubleshoot issues.
