I was told to do it at least 6 weeks before. My Fi will probably get his 2 months out though

We went this past March to reserve everyones. I wanted to make sure they knew the costs, so we did it way early. That way there will be no excuses. They have plenty of time to save. I am not having them all get fitted until January.

We picked them out in mid-August for our December 31st wedding. The tux shop said they’d like measurements 4-6 weeks before the wedding.

We went 5 weeks before the wedding to pick everything out. They said all the men needed to come in no later than 3 weeks before the wedding to get fitted, otherwise there would be an extra rush charge.

My husband bought his suit from Macys and he did it about 2 months in advance.

My wedding was around the same time as yours and I was told to go a lil early due to prom season.  So my hubs went in February.  That ended up not even being necessary so I’d say to go around March or early April.  And make sure you remind him to try on the tux when he picks it up!  The day before our wedding my guy comes downstairs and says…. “I think the pants might be too big”.  So my Mother made him try them on and he was swimming in them!  The morning of our wedding he had to rush to the tux shop and force them to fix it fast.  Eck!

We went about 8 months in advance and got it over with. No reason not to check it off the list. The groomsmen got measured and we put in the order about a month before the wedding. If he had bought a tux rather than rented one we would have waited until two months before since he lost 20 lbs over the summer and dropped two jacket sizes.

We did it 7 weeks before because little brother was heading back to school. I told them all they now have to stay the same size! lol
