I am looking to have my groom wear a navy suit for the wedding. Groom is going to buy a suit, and I figured the groomsmen would just all rent the same navy suit (different from the groom and that’s OK).
Easier said than done…I am having a tough time finding a place to rent navy suits for groomsmen! The only thing I can find is a navy tux to rent.
Anyone have any insights/know of a place where one can rent navy suits?

Bridezzz: It’s always easier with these type of questions if you tell the Bees where you live.
If you live in the USA, try Black Tux
Keep in mind that it may be less expensive for them to buy a suit in the end of sumer sales.

I am in the UK and couldn’t find anywhere that rented suits I liked at a reasonable price. I’ve ended up buying navy 3 piece suits for all of the groomsmen, £115 each.

theblacktux.com has blue tuxedos & I believe blue suits as well

I looked into renting navy suits as well. I couldn’t find anything that Fiance could agree on – he wanted a specific shade of blue (who knew he would care so much lol). We ended up going with Combat Gentlemen for everyone to buy their suits – figured they would be willing to spend a little more to keep the suit and be able to wear it again.

Fiance is having his guys purchase navy suits from H&M. A friend did this when Fiance was in his wedding and it cost about the same as renting, plus they got to keep them.

Bridezzz: we got his navy suit at Macy’s for $150 on sale. I liked the way it looked. It was very clean and modern looking after it was tailored. Suits are so cheap nowadays, that I don’t think it’s worth it to rent one

I was going to say buy too. Handy colour to have for other occasions and use as well.

Just say “wear a solid navy blue suit.” A man either has one, or needs one.

My husband got his suit from Van Heusan outlet. They had a huge selection and he got a steal – it was a 75% off sale. maybe the groomsmen wouldn’t mind buying a suit if they are a good deal? My husband was also in a wedding recently and the groomsmen bought their suits from JC Penny. he has better quality suits for sure for work but he has worn it since to another wedding And it probably has a bit more life left in it. It was cheaper than renting.
