How to make your wedding suit or tux rental process fun and easy
As an LGBTQ+ groom, marrier or wedding party member, the process of finding a stylish suit or tuxedo can be difficult and daunting. Between the awkwardness of engaging with vendors at formal wear stores as a gender-diverse individual and the inconvenience of attending in-person fittings, getting the right look can be stressful and time-consuming. You deserve an easier and more comfortable way to ensure that your wedding attire is spectacular and enjoyable to wear.
That’s where Generation Tux comes in. In addition to being an Equally Wed preferred LGBTQ+ inclusive and affirming vendor, Generation Tux solves for the stress of in-person appointments and the hassle of on-site fittings by delivering your wedding look right to your door 14 days before the big event. If something doesn’t quite fit right? No worries! They’ll send a free replacement, expedited, so nothing is missing for the wedding.
For wedding dress codes from black tie to upscale casual and everything in between (we hear Met Gala attire is on the rise for 2023), the high cost of purchasing formalwear doesn’t have to stop you from looking your best. “Renting is a more cost-effective option than purchasing, especially when considering how often you wear formalwear,” says Liz Marcou, chief of staff at Generation Tux. “It’s a great option for special occasions and allows for access to current styles and trends without the need to purchase.”
Not only is the process easy, but it’s also fun along the way, with options for free swatches and at-home try-on to make sure the details are exactly what you’re looking for. Known for renting high-quality wedding suits and tuxes to masculine-leaning folks since 2014, this gay-friendly company has options for every aesthetic, with more than 25 styles of suits and tuxedos to choose from, plus hundreds of accessories to complete your look. No more fussing over which cuff links or pocket squares to order; you can even get your shoes and socks delivered along with your suit or tux!
The dreaded (and sometimes confusing) process of taking your measurements is another potential barrier to enjoying your wedding suit or tux rental experience. LGBTQ+ grooms, marriers and wedding party attendants seeking a well-fitted look for the big day will be happy to know that the fit process here requires no measuring tape. Instead, all you have to do is answer a few questions on your fit profile and Generation Tux’s fit technology does the work for you to find the perfect match. “No matter who decides to wear our garments,” says Marcou. “We just want to make sure that it fits and that you feel good and that you feel like you’re treated well.”
Returning a rental suit or tux is often the final hurdle of stress when it comes to wedding day apparel, but luckily, all you have to do is put your rented items in the prepaid return bag included with your order and drop it off at your nearest UPS Store location. Treat yourself to being well-dressed, with a wedding experience sans stress.
