@isabelle_86:  We chose ours about 4 months before. However, I think most places recommend choosing them at 3 months so that the Groomsmen can all have their measurements in by 2 months.

@isabelle_86:  I guess I should have asked before- are you renting or buying? That might make a difference. Also, it might depend if you are using a local store or a chain. A chain has tons and tons in stock while a local store may not. We used Men’s Wearhouse which said we can order even close to the date. However, there is absolutely no harm in shopping for them early!

We went with Mens Warehouse (since it was easiest for all the groomsmen/fathers to get to for measurements) and we did it like 2 months prior. The guys had up until 15 days prior to the date to send in measurments/order for the normal price, anytime after that was a ‘rush’ order and cost more. 

My Dad waited until the last minute possible (like 20 days prior to wedding) because he was losing weight. My brother also waited because he was going through a growth spurt. We waited until 2 months prior to choose because we had a short engagement.

we went shopping today for a Sept wedding and they said for hire to let them know by July for hiring groom/groomsmen and 4 weeks out for puchasing page boys suit (age 3 & 4 so will grow and apparently they are super quick to deliver). I would double check with your supplier but they dont seem to need much notice at all

I want to say it was around $120? Groom’s was free (you get to choose who gets the free one lol) because of the number of tuxes we rented in the package… There were also cheaper tux options.
