Not sure if this is the right board, but I’m getting a headache trying to figure out how to organize the tux rentals for my groom and his groomsmen. All five gentlemen live in very different cities and states. Some with lots of shopping and some in very rural areas that are more than two hours away from the nearest tux shop.
How can I get all five guys to get the same tux while flying in from around the world?
Added degree of difficulty: my groom insists that it is impossible to get the measurements ahead of time and order accurate rentals in our wedding city. He says all three times this has been done for him, there were massive alternations that needed to happen to the tuxes. Since everyone is traveling in from other cities, they won’t have time for alterations.
Groom’s plan is to have everyone rent their own tux in their own city. He says, “How many kinds of tuxes can there be?”
Is that right? What do we do?

I`m not really sure in your situation, but for us we ordered from a chain tux shop. Each went to the franchise closest to them to be measured and specified that they be sent to the store closest to our wedding for pickup. Easy-peasy.

All of the groomsmen can get their measurements done at a local shop near them and then sent them to the shop that you guys pick to rent from. There are a ton of different types of tuxes and more rental facilities do NOT want you to travel with them. Also, a lot of places want the tuxes returned the day after the event which wouldn’t work for your traveling groomsmen. They just need to be professionally meansured and everything will be fine.

I would say have them send in their measurements. I know you said they did that before and it didn’t work, but maybe they could go somewhere near them and get their measurements taken by a professional and then send those in.
