You’ve probably been told that planning a wedding is expensive. And it can be! But it doesn’t have to be. After years of working in this industry we’ve seen all the tips and tricks to getting your dream wedding without breaking the bank. With nearly a decade of coordinating events with budgets of all sizes, we are finally letting slip some of the most highly requested secrets on how to save money as soon to be married couple, family, or wedding guest with our newest series of blogs on budget saver secrets.
We know that cost can be a big stressor for engaged couples – and trust us, we will cover budget tips for you too – but we know that you adore your bridesmaids and groomsmen (I mean, why else pick them!) so we wanted to kick things off with a highlight on rental services for tuxes and bridesmaid dresses.
First up in the spotlight: The Black Tux
This online tux and suit rental company makes things easy and fun for your man and his guys. The process is easy – just browse the collection online and choose from the dozens of styles and details. Next, take the fit finder quiz to figure out the perfect size for you – all from the comfort of your couch. Does it get any easier than that? Then, you can do a totally free at home try on before you commit to the rental. Did we mention that it’s totally free and that you can model it around the house for 48 hours? Once you decide how much you love it, you will have the tux or suit for two weeks around the event – perfect for any event that you may be traveling for!
Added bonus: The Black Tux has some super cool online resources for Grooms-to-be and groomsmen. Check it out here to read all about dress codes, bachelor parties, what to do in the case of a wedding day disaster, and more!
