I’m having a semi destination wedding, because I’m getting married in my hometown where my family is, instead of where I live now. So all the groomsmen are traveling to go to the wedding. But I’m going there next week (hometown) and I’m wondering if I should ask the GM for their measurements. I called the tuxedo place and they said they give a really good discount if you reserve 6 months before. I have no idea how this works.

For most tux places the Grooms men actually have to go in personally to the tux shop and get measured there.

The only place I’ve dealt with is Mens Wearhouse. For them we had to register our party with the info all all their names and position in the wedding along with a 40 deposit.
Then the GM, my dad, anyone wearing a tux had to go in and get measured… now they did give us some measurement cards when we registered just in case they couldn’t go in. Oh the measurements also had to get to/be done at the Mens Wearhouse we’d be picking up from. This was a certain amount of days before the Wedding.. they gave us the deadline. The guys also had to had atleast 20 bucks towards the tux as another “deposit”
Then 2 days before the wedding the guys were able to pick up their tuxes… they HAD to go in to try it on and make sure there weren’t any minor adjustments needing to be made.
Then the day after the wedding they had to be returned.
Not sure if your place works the same but this is what I learned via Mens Wearhouse for our wedding……..
Oh and did I mention that they didn’t tell us about registering or the deposit until after my 5th call and 3rd visit of trying to get $$ info for our guys… yea.. it was GREAT lol
EDIT::: Children wearing tuxes had to be measured no more than a month out… since they grow.

We also did ours through Mens Wearhouse. Our experience was a little different. We picked everything out at our local store and gave them the guys’ names. All the male attendants were measured at their local stores (which were all over the country). They also put their deposits down there.
They could have picked up their tuxes at any location, although all picked up at the store closest to the venue. They wanted them to try on/pick up 2 days in advance, but that didn’t always happen.
Ditto on the boys’ suits (much less expensive than tuxes) with the one month thing.
We were OK with the gray tie/vests. However, if you want a popular color, it is a good idea to reserve in advvance. For instance, last summer the Davids Bridal “pool” color was super popular, so it was pretty much booked all summer.
