Saying Yes… To the Tuxedo!

The Best Way to Style the Groom and Groomsmen

Have you ever wondered if a groom gets to have his Yes moment?  His look shows his style and personality, and makes his statement as the most important man at the wedding.

Brides get to say Yes to the Dress with all the cheers and excitement, right?  Now perhaps some guys aren’t into the “frills” like that, but we still would like some professional assistance and guidance in selecting the right look and feel great about it!

Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo ensures grooms feel this level of service, attention, and care.  Grooms shouldn’t have to measure themselves or have a box sent to the house. How are you going to choose from a website photo?  Why should you have to work with someone who isn’t really interested in you or your wedding party? And who wants to be limited to a handful of tuxedos and settle for that?

This is your wedding.  You deserve a professional who will go the extra mile for you and your party. And the best part about all of this extra assistance and styling: Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo  does not charge you extra for this attention and professional advice. We rent thousands of tuxedos and suits every year. We see a lot of men (and even some women) in our 68 different styles of tuxedos and suits available for rent.  When you add the 1,100 or so different colors and styles of long ties, bow ties, vests and shoes that we carry, then we can probably say that we’ve seen more combinations of wedding attire than anyone one else in the Philadelphia region.

One of our favorite and probably most popular extras among our brides and grooms is our one-of-a-kind “Groom Try-on”. Just for the record, our second most popular service according to our customers is the ability to text our store telephone number!

At Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo, we map out a plan for you in choosing and trying on formal wear for you and your groomsmen.  Below are simple steps that we schedule for you to make things easy:

Wedding Tuxedo and Suit Rental Steps

  1. Initial hour-long face-to-face consultation to learn about different styles available.
  2. Choose two different tuxedos and/or suits to try on.
  3. When convenient for the bride and groom, schedule groom try on and the reveal.
  4. Thirty to sixty minute appointment to try on chosen suits or tuxedos in groom’s actual sizes.
  5. Once final attire decisions are made, begin measuring groomsmen, fathers, ring bearers and other guests.  Arrange for out of town guests to get measured for free anywhere in the country.

Initial Tuxedo or Suit Appointment

Our initial tuxedo and suit rental appointment is very relaxed and fun.  The bride and groom can make an appointment online or text us at 215-491-8500.  In this appointment, the bride and groom sit down with one of our tuxedo and suit consultants for an hour and learn all about the 68 different styles that we offer for rent.  Coincidentally, about 35 of those styles are also available for purchase as well. We will show you actual tuxedos and suits in our store and give you a full wedding tuxedo and suit education.  We’ll also show you different long tie and bow tie styles, color swatches, numerous shirts and several different styles of shoes available. Our rental packages include everything. We like to tell our customers that all the guys will need for the wedding are underwear, socks, and Tshirt!  Everything else is provided.

Given our large selection of tuxedos and suits, we will simplify this hour for you and make it very easy to understand.  If the bride and groom only want to see navy tuxedos, we will only show them navy. At the end of this first appointment, our brides and grooms often say “this was a lot simpler than I thought”!  You will be surprised.

There are often a lot of laughs at the appointment as well.  As a family owned local business, we take personal care of you.

Next Step After First Appointment

From this initial appointment, the bride and groom will be given the opportunity to choose up to 2 full tuxedos or suits, or a combination of the two, two pairs of shoes, two shirts, 2 – 4 long ties or bow ties, or a combination of the two and 2 – 4 vests.

We often advise our customers to choose items that you would like to see both the groom and the groomsmen in.  That way, when the groom tries everything on, the couple will be able to see exactly what the groom and groomsmen will look like, even if they are wearing different tuxedos and accessories.

Some brides and grooms know exactly what they want and choose all the try on items at the first appointment.  Others want to think about it and either text us at a later date with their try on choices. Either method is perfectly fine with us.

Going the Extra Mile

This is the step where Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo really goes the extra mile.

Once we know all of the tuxedo, suit and accessory styles that the bride and groom have chosen, we then get to work.

We will pull together the groom’s chosen styles in his exact sizes.  Wait until you see the system we use to determine the groom’s exact sizes; it’s quite clever!  We will even hem the pants and jacket sleeves to the correct lengths. In order to prepare for the groom’s try on, we will put together the following packages as if it’s the couples’ wedding day and the groom is ready to get dressed:

  1. 2 Tuxedo and/or suit jackets in the groom’s exact size, sleeves custom hemmed.
  2. 2 – 4 vests in groom’s exact size.
  3. 2 different pairs of pants in groom’s exact size, pants length custom hemmed.
  4. 2 different shirts in groom’s exact size, including sleeve length.
  5. 2 – 4 different long ties or bow ties
  6. 2 pairs of shoes in groom’s exact size.
  7. Studs and cufflinks.
  8. Matching pocket squares.

The package is a fully dry cleaned, professionally altered and pressed tuxedo or suit rental just for the groom to try on to see how he and the bride like the styles and look.  Really cool, right?!

We learned a long time ago that it’s very difficult to choose your wedding attire from trying on something that doesn’t fit you.  Who wants to try on something that looks like your father’s jacket on you when you were a kid?! Additionally, knowing how this color bow tie will look with that tuxedo is tough to determine without seeing it on.  It’s also difficult to see the entire look when you are trying on only a portion of the items.

We’ve solved all of these issues by)allowing the groom to play dress up with all of the exact attire and accessories in his exact sizes.  In addition, you’ll even get to see how high quality our suits and tuxedos are by trying on our actual rental inventory, not samples.

The (Second) Biggest Day, Or Maybe the Third!

With 2 – 3 business days notice, we can put together the groom’s look and chosen items.  We prefer a little more time than that, but we can do it with as little as two to three days notice!

Either at the initial appointment or at a later date, the bride and groom schedule their groom try on appointment.  Most schedule this by text message, others do it online.  Do what is easiest for you.

The try on appointment is an hour long.  We sit the bride at one of our round top tables and stools while the groom is set up in one of our large and private dressing rooms.

Couples are encouraged to take photos and videos of the groom in his different style choices. Seeing the tuxedo before your own eyes makes it so much easier for people to envision what they will look like on their wedding day, which makes our couples feel much more comfortable in their final attire selection.

Watching a groom emerge from the dressing room in a full tuxedo is very special.  He goes into the room in jeans and comes out a whole new man. As a tuxedo consultant, seeing the glint in the eyes of our brides when the perfect tuxedo comes together for her groom, as well as watching the groom taking himself in looking exceptional, is so special for us.  We love being part of it!
