We're never ones to shy away from chatting about a beautiful gown... or two, or three. But when it comes to dressing the bridal party, making sure the men in your life are happy is just as important as taking care of your besties. Which is why we're teaming up with our faves at Generation Tux for a little rundown on how to do just that, plus some sweet advice on keeping them looking their best. Scroll below for dapper + happy groom and groomsmen in six easy steps.
ONE: KEEP IT CONVENIENT
Let's be honest, most guys you know don't really want to spend hours upon hours shopping for that one gorgeous tux or suit. So keeping it easy and convenient for all those handsome fellas is totally key. With Generation Tux, you can say "goodbye" to the endless time spent looking and "hello" to total convenience with easy-peasy online shopping and FREE shipping with a tux/suit rental. Generation Tux will even get your outfit out to you 10-14 days in advance and give you three days to return your attire with FedEx or USPS. Grooms can even reserve a free at-home fit trial to experience Generation Tux before the event. We love that.
TWO: MAKE SURE THE PRICE IT RIGHT
Asking the ones you love to stand beside you on THE big day is a total honor, but it shouldn't be an expensive one. With Generation Tux, suit and tux rentals start at just $129 (seriously) and a full look (that's suit, shirt, tie, pocket square AND shoes) will rent for $174+. Those are some numbers that your fellas can appreciate... trust us.
THREE: GET STYLING ASSISTANCE
What's better than sending your men on the hunt for the perfect bow tie to match your very distinct shade of violet? Chatting one-on-one with a Generation Tux Stylist and letting them do all of the heavy lifting for you. Think a digital styling studio which allows you to play around with color and style, hundreds of hues for every palette (hello, perfect vests, ties and pocket squares) and even suits for the littles. They'll help you figure it ALL out.
FOUR: MANAGE IT ALL
Stepping up as a groomsmen or bridesmaid is always awesome, but it's even better when the two sweeties getting married take care of all of the details. With Generation Tux, you can chat with your Stylist, select outfits for every member of your bridal party, send out email invites to view styles and then let the team at Generation Tux handle the rest with automatic reminders to collect measurements (your guys can measure at home!) and payment. It's sooo easy to organize your entire group... even if they live across the country!
FIVE: INSIST ON HIGH-QUALITY
You want only the best for your dudes and Generation Tux totally gets that. Which is why every piece of amazing attire they offer is developed as part of George Zimmer's private label and is just as luxurious and classic as you want. Think suits and tuxes with a higher thread count and finer quality of wool, 100% cotton shirts with adjustable button tab necks, convertible cuffs and placket, 100% silk fashion ties in a beautiful assortment of colors (with FlexFit!) and modern and slim fit options. They even offer boys' sizes in tuxes and suits, so your ring bearers will look just as fabulous.
