When it comes to planning a wedding, there are so many details to keep in mind. From selecting the right venue, choosing the perfect menu, finding the wedding dress, and so much more,it seems like there is a never-ending list of things to take care of. It’s no wonder that planning a wedding can sometimes lead to stress for the engaged couple. However, one part of planning a wedding that doesn’t have to be stressful or complicated is renting a tuxedo. With Menguin, the whole process – from getting fitted online to returning the tux afterward – is easy & effortless.

I recently had the wonderful experience of receiving a tuxedo from Menguin and the whole process was so pleasant & stress-free from beginning to end. When I got married several years ago, we had a really negative experience renting a tux from a local shop at the mall. The employees were super pushy and totally unfriendly. Moreover, the tux did not fit well and the price was fairly high! I really wish I knew about Menguin back when I was planning my wedding. I’ve already recommended Menguin to a few of my engaged friends. When it comes to renting a tux, Menguin is a convenient, stress-free solution!

Nobody wants to deal with ill-fitting tuxes the day before a wedding. Did you know that traditional tuxedo vendors allow pickup only 48 hours before the event? That’s really a problem, because it doesn’t leave a lot of time for dealing with any potential sizing issues! Menguin has the largest inventory in the US with 6 national distribution centers & 24-7 customer service. If a tuxedo from Menguin arrives and there are issues with fit, Menguin will ship you a replacement for free within days! Menguin helps you take the hassle & stress out of tuxedo fitting!

The first step is to build your tux look online! You can customize almost everything about your tux style! Menguin offers the highest quality suits for rental, all of which are available with matching accessories. Prices start at $89, so there is a tux designed for every budget! By not having a physical storefront with salespeople, Menguin can save so much money and they pass those savings onto the customer! There are actually thousands of color combinations and you can customize neckwear, shirt, vest, pocket square, socks and more. Isn’t that amazing?! You can order the shoes and socks online, too!

Did you know that you can build different looks for the different men in the wedding party (father of the bride, groomsmen, etc.) and then email them an invitation? This then invites them to enter their measurements and pay for their tux.

After you’ve designed your ideal tux, the next step is to get fitted online. You can either go to a local tailor to get your measurements done professionally or you can just use the tips on the Menguin website to find accurate measurements. Menguin then runs your measurements through their fit calculator to make sure the numbers are typical for an individual of a similar size. They will contact you- via email or text- if there are any issues with your measurement info. If everything fits well, you’re good to go. Check out this handsome man modeling the Menguin tux!

After you’ve provided your measurements, the next step is that Menguin will ship the suit or tux to you. The box contains everything you requested, such as jacket, pants, shoes, and more. You will receive your box about 10-12 days before the event so there’s plenty of time to try everything on and make sure it all fits correctly. What’s most convenient is that your home is your dressing room! If there’s any issue with the fit, simply contact Menguin and they’ll expedite replacement items completely free of charge! And since they have 6 distribution centers, they’re only 2 days away from anyone in the US. When their sleek, black box with the iconic logo arrives on the doorstep, you’ll know that your tux has arrived.

When it comes to planning a wedding, it’s all about the details and planning in advance. Here are some of my best tips that I’ve learned from planning my own wedding:

  • Book the venue ahead of time. A lot of places get booked many months in advance. To make sure you get the location of your choice, place a deposit on your desired venue at least 6-12 months before the event.
  • Notify your guests of the date as early as possible. Send a “Save the date” card to make sure your guests don’t plan a vacation during your event weekend.
  • Add personalized DIY touches to your event. Whether you add some cute mason jar centerpieces or a DIY guestbook, personalizing the decorative elements of your event will add a special touch!
  • Give out-of-town guests a welcome basket. Include bottles of water, snacks, local maps, and a list of nearby restaurants to make sure your guests have everything they need to feel welcome in the new city.
  • Plan the seating chart wisely. Try to strategically seat different groups of people (friends, family, coworkers, etc.) together so that new friendships can develop & interesting conversations can ensue.
  • Give out a practical & unique favor. Consider giving your guests some flowering seeds in a decorative basket or engraved glassware that they’ll enjoy for years.
