Tuxes And Suits–What You Need To Know

We may be Aurora “Bridal”, but did you know we also have tuxes and suits? In fact, we have the largest selection of tuxes and suits on the Space Coast. So, whether you’re shopping for a wedding or formal event (or both), we’ve got the men in your life covered too! And while you can rent tuxes and suits from us, many of our clients end up investing in a suit to keep because, yeah–they’re that nice! And with purchase prices starting at just $240, they’re SUPER affordable, so why not?! If you’re making enough commitments at the moment and renting is more your speed, we got you! Our rentals are just as sharp and start at $149.95! Now let’s go over everything you need to know before you suit up…

Suit vs. Tux

First, let’s figure out what you’re looking for. When you think of that classic James Bond look, all black with a white shirt, that’s a tux. Tuxes are classic for formal events, especially weddings. The few features that set a tux apart from a regular suit is satin (a somewhat shiny fabric) collar and a satin stripe down the leg of the pants. So while all tuxes are technically suits, not all suits are tuxes-comprendo? These days men and women alike are pushing the envelope when it comes to wedding fashion and tuxes are no longer mandatory. In fact, a lot of grooms are opting for suits. Tuxes are a great option for more formal weddings like ballroom weddings or weddings at grand estates, while suits are perfect for beach weddings, garden weddings, and weddings with a more laid-back vibe in general. The good news is that with our amazing selection of both, you really can’t go wrong!

Popular Colors

Suits and tuxes both come in a variety of colors and we’ve got em all! Black suits and tuxes never go out of style, but lately, we’ve been seeing a ton of men opt for shades of gray and navy for their big life moments instead. We’re also excited to see more actual color back in menswear like light blue and dark green which are currently having a moment. Speaking of color, there’s a lot more to consider than just the color of your suit, there are accessories too! So even if you’re leaning toward a neutral, there’s still plenty of room for expression. Colorful accessories are a great way to coordinate with your date or your event. Just bring in a swatch or a photo and we can help you match just about any color!

Levels Of Formality

If you’re shopping for someone else’s event, make sure to request the dress code if it isn’t already on the invitation. Different levels of formality call for different ensembles. For example, a suit is perfect for cocktail to semi-formal, but for black-tie, a tux is a must!

When To Order

When you’re planning for a big event like a wedding or prom, getting all of your ducks in a row takes time. We suggest that you select your style a few months prior to the event and have all of your measurements taken and suits reserved 4-6 weeks before the big day. This ensures that you have plenty of time and won’t have to pay any rush fees.
