- Wedding: September 2012
I’m a bit stumped on how to go about attiring my groom. We’re traveling abroad for our wedding and we don’t really want to spend the money right now to buy him a suit.
I was hoping to rent him something once we are in Minnesota, but that will be only five days before the wedding. I don’t know anything about renting menswear.
How far in advance does one usually need to make the booking? How much does it normally cost? Will he need to go in for fittings?
Also, he’s really tall (6’5″ or 194cm) with very broad shoulders and we always have trouble finding suits for him that fit him in the shoulders but aren’t made for someone with a girth three times his size. What are the odds that a rental place would have something to fit him? Would we save ouselves a lot of hassle by just buying him a suit we can’t really afford right now and having it tailored so we can be sure it will fit him?
And if we do go the rental route, can anyone recommend someplace in Rochester, MN or the Twin Cities that I could take him when we arrive?
