Prom Suits 2017 the Experience

Tags : 

Prom Suits 2017 the Experience!!

Let me try and wake up some thoughts and ideas of every possible Prom goer and their parents, families and friends that do a lot of Prom supporting this time of year. We hear the old cliche’s all the time like “Video killed the radio star” “Yellow Pages are no more because of the internet” and so many more things that have changed over the years because of technologies and other events. Likewise for renting tuxedos on line, but think about this for a minute.

We still go to baseball games, basketball, football and hockey. Why? When we can watch the games on TV in the comfort of our own homes or at a bar or friends house. The refrigerator is 15 feet away, no crowds, tv replays, no parking issues or crowds. But guess what, we still go to the games for the EXPERIENCE.

Renting a tuxedo or suit should be looked at the same way as going to a game. You want to go in and touch it and feel it before you rent something that is suppose to make you look and feel good. Plus all the colors in the tux shop and all the great advice that a tuxedo specialist shares, you can’t beat this. Your mom might there helping you pick the right look and your date could be there saying that color will not match my dress. Good luck doing any of this ordering a tuxedo rental online and be prepared to pay way more for your tuxedo rental . Good luck getting it on time and most of all good luck having it fit right. At your local tuxedo specialist shop there should be someone there to help you make a great choice and a perfect fit and some really great price points. And change orders can happen while you wait but not when you get a box with a wrinkled tuxedo suit from the mail man or UPS.

Now you decided to rent a tux locally, good for you. But where do you begin. Do you Google Tuxedo shop near me or do you look up Tuxedo rental reviews on a site like Yelp or do you ask a friend. Navigating the business review world can be tricky because you know a lot of small businesses have asked friends and family to post a positive business review on a site for them. It’s the Tuxedo companies lively hood having customers come in and it’s how every small business pays it’s bills. Some companies don’t have time for that they are just trying to take care of the business they have and some are always trying to find more ways to bring in new business. Fake reviews are wrong! They ruin the internet for everyone, but your going somewhere to rent your Prom suit and your ready for the experience because ordering online is not your thing.

Most local tux shops are great most of the time and can be off their game slightly during the busy Prom and wedding season, so now it’s up to you to relax and enjoy the experience, yes, the experience. Your not ordering online and opening a tuxedo rental box in your living room by yourself, nope. Your standing in a room full of Prom Suits feeling the vibe and looking around and checking out others doing the same thing, awesome. Maybe you get lucky and find your unique look right away or maybe it takes you awhile but either way your feeling it and enjoying the moment because in life and it’s a once in a life time EXPERIENCE  and it’s all  yours and anyone that came with you. I’m jealous because I would love to do it all over again so please enjoy it for me.

At Rose Tuxedo I can tell you our reviews are real and were not perfect. We have 3 locations and the best Prom Suit rental prices and selection in Arizona. We love what we do and you will experience this when you come in. Thank you to all a head of time and have a great Prom.

Prom 2017

Tags : 

Make Prom 2017 Great for Everyone
Prom is easily one of the most anticipated events of high school. For most high school students, especially the young ladies, it is a magical night filled with beautiful dresses, elegant hairstyles, amazing decorations, and of course, dinner and dancing with that special someone. Given the anticipation that builds up for months, or maybe even years, over prom, it is easy to forget that it is just one night in your life. It is easy to forget that this one evening, while special, and important, will not define your character as you grow into adulthood. What will define your character as you grow into adulthood will be how you handle bumps in the road to prom, how you treat your date, how you treat fellow prom attendees, and perhaps most importantly, how you treat yourself.

Not everyone is going to have the same expectations, or aspirations, for prom. That is okay, in fact, it should be encouraged. The world is a big, amazing place, filled with millions of people with different expectations, and aspirations. That is what makes it miraculous. All of these people co-existing to make the world a better place for everyone, particularly young people growing into adulthood. Prom is a metaphor for that world that you are about to step into.

There will be girls that choose a ten-dollar, vintage, thrift-store dress, over an expensive gown from an exclusive boutique. Applaud their resourcefulness. Applaud their individuality. There will be girls that decide on a simple updo that they do themselves, instead of going to a trendy hair salon. Applaud their creativity. Applaud their do-it-yourself attitude. There will be guys that decide on a powder blue tuxedo with a ruffled shirt. Applaud their confidence. Applaud their uniqueness.
There will be guys that cannot afford to take their date to the most expensive restaurant before prom. Applaud their being thrifty. Applaud their doing the best that they can.

There will be girls that have an expensive gown from an exclusive boutique. Applaud their style. Applaud their eye for beauty. There will be girls with intricate hairstyles done by a trendy hair salon. Applaud their vision. Applaud their confidence to stand out. There will be guys in classic black tuxedos. Applaud their regal style. Applaud how handsome all guys look in a tuxedo. There will be guys that can afford to take their date to an expensive restaurant before prom. Applaud their ability to splurge once in awhile. Applaud them doing the best that they can. Also be careful with the Tuxedo Shops that offer $40 off your Prom Suits, it’s usually because their charging more to give you that discount.

Let prom be what you want it to be. Don’t let other people define your prom experience for you. Don’t try to define other people’s prom experience. It is a right of passage for everyone at the same time. Be kind, respect each other, marvel in each prom attendees uniqueness, individuality, and contribution to the evening. Prom is a magical evening that will be gone too quickly. The memories however will stay with you for a lifetime. Help foster amazing memories for everyone. Help everyone that attends have a memory that they will look back on years from now and cherish. Have fun, be safe, and don’t forget, if you know a handsome gentleman looking for the perfect prom tuxedo, Rose Tuxedo has been renting for prom since 1982. We also rent lady tuxedos if you know a beautiful young lady looking for something a bit different than a traditional prom dress. Call us anytime for your Prom Suit. 602 957-0089

Hot Colors for Your Wedding In 2017

Hot Colors for Your Wedding In 2017!
If you are planning your wedding for 2017, it’s helpful to know what colors are trending for bridal gowns and tuxedos. This year we are seeing a swing away from bright, hot colors and glamorous styles to more simple and soft pastels. There are wonderful shades of blue, purple, gray and pink all in light and subtle shades for spring.

For summer there is a trend towards sweet colors and combinations such as tones of peach, blues, and dusty rose. For winter or autumn, good choices for this year are deep-dark oranges, plum, and pinks. Also, trending is a dark cranberry color for winter. The dark cranberry looks fabulous with black as your secondary color. Another great combination is charcoal gray with dusty purple and dark royal purple accents.

There is such a great choice of tuxedo rentals and no matter what colors you choose you can do a standard black tuxedo or a dark gray and there are a wide variety of vests, cummerbund, and tie sets to match your bridesmaids and groomsmen. A really hot idea is to have all of your bridesmaids in a different color and shade of a similar style of gown and different color vests for each groomsman. It’s so great to stand out individually.

Trending this year are many different shades of blue. The thing that’s so great about blue is it’s a popular color. Blue is also timeless and there are so many shades that can act as a secondary color. The groom can look so sharp in a blue tux, it doesn’t have to be the blue that was so popular in the 70’s. There are great shades of blue that look modern and sexy.

The shades of peach that are trending this year are more subtle, creamy white tones combined with darker peaches. And for accents, a dusky mint green is very pretty. The pinks that are popular this year also look classy and romantic. Another great color trend this year is for dark purple combined with a darker mint green color.The dress styles this year are trending more to a soft style with gentle sweeping lines.

In tuxedos this year it tends to be swinging more to a texture on the vests, such as paisley prints or plaid tuxedos. Some grooms are swinging more to the nostalgic trend of double breasted jackets in shades of navy, black or off-white jackets. Some tuxedos that are really popular this year are Xavier, Sebastian, Marbella, Sandstone and Jackson.

Wedding Trends in 2017

Tags : 

Wedding Trends in 2017 have some interesting things going on. We wanted to take a look at some of the most popular ones and the ones that we at Rose tuxedo liked. Having been in the Men’s formal wear business for over 35 years we have seen a lot. So here’s a few Wedding trends in 2017.

For sure weddings will be using a lot of technology both in front of the scenes and behind them. Millennial Weddings will be posting a lot of social media so keep that in mind with all you do and say, but have fun it’s your wedding, who cares.

 

Rehearsal dinner have become very casual at least in Phoenix AZ when the weather can be warm and beautiful at times. It doesn’t have to be at a restaurant anymore it could be as simple as someones back yard with a foot truck hosting it. Very laid back with wine and beer and food, does it get any better?

 

Traditional things have been thrown out the door, Millennial’s have come up with some fun new stuff and added to the old. Cutting of the cake can be very exciting these days and lots of surprises. Be ready for tons of new ideas.

Say goodbye to your classic white princess dress but don’t be bummed

Wedding dresses have some extra sparkle with shiny material lately, sparkly metallic gowns are in. Shimmery dress have been hitting runways all over the world so why not, it’s still a sophisticated wedding look for a black-tie affair.

Are you ready for this? Drone photography, yep.

And here is my favorite; every single moment of your special day could be captured with pictures from a drone. Having a drone take aerial photos and videos of your wedding will help preserve memories that you can look at forever and from a very unique angle.

Share some of your 2017 Wedding Trends on our Facebook page and Instagram, we love them all. And remember, it’s your wedding and you only going to do it once, we hope, so have fun and make it yours.

Bridal Show 2017

Bridal Show – A Great Way to Enjoy the Moment, Avoid Stress and have Fun!

You’re getting married! What an exciting and wonderful time! This is the day that you’ve been dreaming of since you were a little girl. You probably have a vision in your mind of what your special day will be like, from the dress, to the flowers, the music down to the food. Yet HOW do we make this dream a reality? What better way to find everything you need to make your special day complete than a visit to a bridal show! Look for your Wedding Tuxedos groom.

Bridal shows, events and expo’s are great ways to find different vendors that you will need for your wedding. Most of them are just as excited as you and want to do everything they can to make your day magnificent! Keep in mind these events can have anywhere from 50 – 200 different vendors, all wanting your business. Here are some tips to help make the most of your bridal show experience:

1. Bring your support person along. Whether that’s the groom, mom, sister, or best friend, bring them along for the fun! You will have the opportunity to look at several different options, and in some cases taste different foods, cakes and drinks! This is truly a memorable experience and even more so if shared with someone close to you. In addition to having a good time and gathering ideas, visiting the show brings you one step closer to putting your plans for your day in action. Always remember that you can still make great deals with all your bridal show vendors after the shows. Just because they say it’s “Bridal Show only” don’t believe it.

2. Travel lightly, but smartly. Vendors want you to remember them. And how do they do this? By offering bling! Buttons, key chains, business cards, brochures, pens, coupons, these are just a few of the many items you may receive. However, 50 buttons start to feel pretty heavy in your purse that’s also got your makeup bag, cell phone, loose change, etc. Take everything out of your purse and only carry the absolute necessities that you will need while visiting the event. You will be glad you did, and your shoulder will thank you for it! Sadly Arizona Bridal show 2017 was on a big Football playoff weekend with 2 games on Saturday and Sunday same time as the bridal show. We don’t see as many guys out. Rose Tuxedo for your inexpensive tuxedo rentals.

3. How do you want to be contacted? As much bling as these vendors will be giving you to contact them, they are also going to request your contact info so they can contact you! That can end up being A LOT of phone calls coming through to your phone, which if that is the way you want to be contacted, ok! Some people may prefer email, text or even snail mail as their preferred method of contact. I’ve known a few people that have even opened a separate email account strictly for all of their wedding info to ensure nothing got lost in their normal day-to-day correspondence. Most vendors will ask you to fill out a contact info slip, which after writing your name, address, phone number, email address and preferred contact method 20 times can be pretty tough on your hand. After 50 times you may not even be able to read it anymore! A great way to avoid this is address labels! Print your contact information on the labels, carry them with you to the event, stick a label on the contact info sheet and you are good to go! Every little trick helps and makes your bridal show experience all the better. We have your Wedding Tuxedos at Rose.

On a final note, whether your budget is $20,000 or $2000, visiting a bridal show can be an immense help in planning your day. Grab your support person, an empty purse, and be prepared to have a blast checking out all your different options! Congratulations! Rose Tuxedo Bridal show Special is good for all of January 2017 so come by anytime. www.rosetuxedoaz.com Rose Tuxedo live chat 24/7
