Enter: online tuxedo rentals. With just a few clicks, you can have your tux delivered to you well before your wedding and well within your budget. Could it really be this easy? Yes, believe it.
Tuxedo rentals have come a long way, not only have they expanded their range of styles from the traditional to the trendy, but they've also fine-tuned their processes. Most tuxedo rental websites offer a fit and measurement guide so that you don't even have to set foot in a store. Another plus? Most of the below styles fall under $300 and that's including customizations like fabric color and lapel shape.
