  • Wedding: June 2014

We went to Men’s Warehouse for our June 7th wedding. We didn’t even go in until February to look, and the deadline for the groomsmen was April 1st, two of them didn’t even get measured until about two weeks before the wedding (one they lost the measurements and had to get re-measured and ordered two days before wedding….). January is waay too early. Body size can change a lot even just through seasons. Every wedding my DH has been in he got measured 1-3 months before the wedding. There’s no reason they need measurements 8 months early, especially at a chain.

Nine months ahead of time is way too early. People’s bodies can change so much in nine months! I don’t exactly when our guys had to get measured but I don’t think we even had tuxes picked out that early at MW. FWIW, I would not be happy to be giving my measurements so early, I would be so paranoid of gaining or losing weight. Go ahead and let them know now but give them the actual date they need to be measured by, not that “should” be measured by date.
