Question- which company (if any of these) did you choose? Currently we have a spot/deal with Seno where all groomsmen and FOB/G get $50 off each rental, free socks, grooms tux is free and half off (I think) of the ring bearer., and free socks. I know someone that works at MW and offered the same deal I was just wondering in terms of pricing/quality which did you prefer Out of the three?
If if you remember pricing you can include that! We are doing Bill Levkoff dresses as well.

We’re not doing tuxes, so I have no personal experience, but my FI is best man in a wedding in about a month and the groom chose to go with Savvi. His experience there was fine, so we’ve got nothing bad to say about them, however one thing to keep in mind:
Savvi had a simmilar deal where if all the groomsmen rent their tuxes from them, the groom’s is free, but this actually led to a little bit of resentment from the wedding party because it was actually the more expensive option (for the party) just so the groom didn’t have to pay for his own. It would have saved my FI and each of the other guys about $80 to go with the second choice (sorry, I don’t remember what store that was), but then the groom would have also had to pay; he went with what was free for him…but more expensive for everyone else. Just keep that in mind, I guess, when you’re out shopping for deals.

We used Men’s Warehouse. We actually got a free tux rental for FIL and a free suit for DH after the wedding (which is awesome because DH has to wear suits all the time) We had no resentment issues because of that. I think it comes down to most of the guys had been in weddings for eachother/would be in weddings for eachother in the future, and pretty much knew that the groom gets the deal, and when their day comes, DH would rent a tux for their wedding without grumbling.
It doesn’t have to be the groom getting the deal, we could have applied the free tux to who ever we wanted, which is why it was applied to FIL’s tux and DH paid for his rental. If we had a different friend who couldn’t afford a rental, we probably would have applied it to them.
For us the decision to use Men’s Warehouse wasn’t just the deal. My brother and DH’s friend lived in two different cities, while DH and most of the rest of the wedding party live in the city we are in. The place that offered rentals and was near to every one was MW. I would look into how convienent it is for your entire wedding party to pick up tuxes personally (you always want them to try it on at pick up!) Having no knowledge about the other two stores having other locations, I would make sure that the locations are conveient for your wedding party. You don’t want someone to need to pick up their tux right before the rehersal dinner to find out that it doesn’t fit and trying to figure out Saturday morning how to get it exchanged.
