they weren’t very nice in clearwater either. we told them that we were looking for an outfit for my fi and his groomsmen for the wedding, the lady tried to dictate what they should all wear. she wanted the guys to wear pink ties because that’s my color, i said no because i don’t want them to spend all of that money on a tie that they’ll just wear once (they just aren’t pink tie kind of guys), plus i’m ok with things not being matchy, but she wasn’t ok with that. is it her wedding? i decided not to argue anymore and we just left. they’re wearing yellow ties from dillards, where the lady was very helpful.

Hey gals, I am Minnesota bride and I will definitely keep that in mind!! I think we are doing with The Wedding Shoppe on Grand in St. Paul for tuxes (because I got my dress there, and we get a 20% discount on the dress for ordering tuxes there, too!) – thanks for the heads up on the BAD Men’s Warehouse!!

I was totally thinking of going there for suits for our groomsmen!! Thanks for the info, I will have to come up with a plan B now.

I would reconsider renting tuxes from The Wedding Shoppe on Grand.

I too got the same promotion on my dress there and though I loved my dress and alterations experience, it ultimately was not worth the 20% discount. All the men got measured at the store months ahead of time, however when the tuxes came in, none fit. My dad had to go back 3 times before he was able to take his tux with him. My husband’s pants were hemmed in store and looked so bad you could see the stitch marks half way up his calf. And why would they have to hem that much pant since he was measured? I was also told by my husband and groomsmen then while picking up and trying the tuxes that the service was awful. Which was a shock to me since up until this point, the service we received when choosing the tuxes was great.

I totally agree with the comments about Men’s Wearhouse…. we actually went there to look for suits (to buy, since all the boys were talking about needing new suits and rather spending more to get something they could keep) and not necessarily tuxes. They were unbelievably unhelpful. Wouldn’t really help us try to piece anything together, and then when we started asking about tuxes as well as suits they almost made us feel like we were just wasting their time.

I’ve heard mixed reviews about the Wedding Shoppe (just not on here) which is why we didn’t even check them out. My husband did have to rent a tux there for a different wedding he was in and they were alright. My only complaint is that when I went to return the tux for him they gave me trouble about his shoes, which he didn’t rent, they didn’t believe me and thought we had lost them. It took me making them look through their records to clear it up.  Also, they’re not open on Sunday at all so if it’s a Saturday wedding you’ll have no choice but to return it Monday or face an extra penalty (not exactly convenient for out of town groomsmens).

We went with Savvi, and were really happy. The tuxes were decent priced, the service was fantastic, and everyone was fitted well. We even (well, a groomsman) did some accidental damage (burnhole) to two of the undershirts and they didn’t even make us feel bad about it, just charged a $25 replacement charge each (not a bad price for a rented shirt).

I’m doing the suits thing as well, getting suits for the guys instead of tuxes. But we’re going for a laid-back casual look, this is our inspiration:

 

We don’t want anything fancy, so for the groomsmen we’re just doing dress pants, white shirt, suspenders and a tie. For my fiance we’re doing dress pants, suspenders, tie and suit jacket. We’re looking at just kohls, the shirts are $20, pants are about $30, suspenders $20. And the jacket will be the only big expense for my fiance, but he doesn’t have one anyway so it’s a good investment.

 

I am excited to do something different than tuxes 🙂

We are also going the casual look.  Black dress slacks, black dress shirt, and super bright colorful tie.  Never thought about suspenders…might have to add that in. 🙂  Besides, who thought the idea of dressing up meant a tux pant with an ugly, shiny stripe down the side?  I wanna slap the person who invented it! lol

Thank for the info. My sister got her tuxes through MW and I don’t remember her having any issues. Then again, that was years ago.

My dress is a vintage reproduction so I’m thinking we’ll end up going with Heimies Haberdashery in St. Paul.

I went to the MW in Southdale Mall and Roseville and had really helpful service at both locations. We ordered 8 suits to buy and they were very accommodating. They ordered all of them for us and even shipped one of them to a guy that lives in TX. Plus, we only paid about $150 for each suit because of their awesome sales!

I’d say anything in Maple Grove is a No No. Haha. Kidding. Sorta.

Honestly, I think it depends on the sales person – not necessarily the store. 

We went to the Wedding Shoppe and I had horrible service – I would never recommend them. 

We also went to a Savvi in Eagan – again SUPER horrible experience. They were late opening the store, the girl looked like she just rolled out of bed – she was super unhelpful, never even offered to measure my hubby, or grab different colors of tuxes, vests, etc. We had to ask for everything. Needless to say – we didn’t end up going with them.  

Then, we went to Men’s Wearhouse – first a store – which they don’t have all the tuxes there to look at, then the actual MW Tux Rental place in Burnsville mall. We had great service and were super happy.

And, my brother in law is getting married this year in another state, and we were able to just call up the MW in that state and they had my husband’s measurements all on file, so he’s good to go.  

I’d just shop around – it’s the best option.
