Bridal shows are popular in January. December is the month in which most people get engaged and the summer months are known for the best weddings. It’s no surprise why many brides prefer to have their wedding in one of the summer months. Here are some fun statistics from SoundVision:

  • $72 billion per year is spent on weddings
  • 2.3 million couples wed every year in the US. That breaks down to nearly 6,200 weddings a day
  • June is the most popular month for weddings, then August, followed by September and October
  • Here’s a monthly breakdown: January 4.7%, February 7.0%, March 6.1%, April 7.4%, May 9.8%, June 10.8%, July 9.7%, August 10.2%, September 9.6%, October 9.4%, November 7.4%, December 7.8%

Bridal shows

Should you go to a bridal show to look for things and vendors you need to complete your wedding? Rose Tuxedo has been in the tuxedo rental business in Arizona for over 25 years. We have participated in all the “big name” bridal shows, and the small ones as well. Years ago there was no Google search engine so if businesses didn’t have an ad in the Yellow Pages or a booth at a bridal show, brides and grooms had a hard time finding you. For the bride it’s like a badge of honor to attend a bridal show with her mother, future mother-in-law and all or some of her bridesmaids and friends. She can shop for wedding cake companies, catering, limos, places to have the wedding, men’s formalwear and so much more. She will be approached by every vendor she and her friends walk by.

They will try to ask her questions and hand her some promotional material about their business. It can be a nice way to spend the day for a bride because bridal shows are on the weekend. Bridal shows are not cheap anymore though; they usually cost you about $12.00 per person to get in. You can find deals and meet some good vendors. Plan on receiving a lot of junk mail and emails, and maybe even some cold calls after the show, because the vendors are there to get your name and wedding information so they can sell you. And yes, you will sign up for something to win and give it to them, everyone does. You will go home with a bag of flyers and brochures from all the vendors that you stopped to talk with, so you can spend the rest of the day sorting through and organizing them, trying to remember what business you really, really liked. It is a bridal show, so the majority of the crowd is usually women, but every now and then you will see a groom walking down the aisles.

Rose Tuxedo has always shown their appreciation to every guy attending by giving him some kid of small gift and great ideas for their Tuxedos . Let’s say you find a great deal on a tuxedo rental , but the tuxedo shop is nowhere near your home, that usually doesn’t work for you or all your groomsmen . One of the reasons our tuxedo shops do so well at the bridal shows is that we have 3 metro Phoenix, AZ locations that serve all the surrounding cities like Gilbert, Scottsdale, Glendale, and so many more.

The internet has not completely shut down bridal shows, but you can shop online for all your needs and save the entry cost of attending a show, and the crowds and the parking. With the internet, we can have a great website doing a lot of that for us and then answer any questions when the customers call. As for all the deals you may have missed? Just call the places you’re interested in and ask them if they will honor the bridal show specials they offered, and I promise you most of them will. Most of the deals at the show are just to get you in the shops anyway, and then you will have to deal with the up-selling for the styles you really want.

It’s work for the wedding businesses to participate in a bridal show, and it costs a lot of money to be there. We pay for the space and our employees to help set up, work and break down the booth and all the printed promotional material we hand out. The January show is usually 2 days and the June show is one. It is held downtown during the day. Last year the Diamondbacks baseball game was going on and letting out at the same time the bridal show was ending. In my humble opinion, and I’ll deny it if you show this blog to a bridal show promoter, stay home and do your research about wedding vendors. You can look online or ask friends who have had the awesome experience of getting married.

Rose Tuxedo Bridal Shows

In the past Rose Tuxedo felt like it had to be in a Bridal show expo but not anymore with all the helpful info and resources on the Internet it’s not a big deal and the same goes for a Bride and Groom, if you can’t go or you miss a Bridal show don’t worry you haven’t missed much. It’s a wonderful thing to find that perfect person to be with the rest of your life, and the good vendors will find you and you will find them. I say visit the Wedding businesses you are interested in the same day of the bridal show. You will have less customers in the shops because a lot of people will be at the shows. If you need some recommendations for other wedding vendors, take a look on our web site www.rosetuxedo.com at our “Preferred Vendor list”, or ask an associate for a referral when you stop in one of our 3 tuxedo shop locations. Good luck and best wishes. Just some thoughts to help you decide. Should I stay or should I go now.

How should you be dressed for a summer wedding?

Tags : 

Summer weddings have invaded the atmosphere. And if you’re a person with a family and friends, you’ll most likely attend at least one wedding each year. A third of those weddings will be held during the summer months. That means there is about 33% chance that you’ll need to be properly attired for a summer wedding. Which leads us to the question: How are we supposed to be dressed for a summer wedding?

Summer Wedding Dress Code

It doesn’t have to be a nightmare to get dressed for a summer wedding. On the contrary, it should be fun. When deciding what to wear for an outdoor summer wedding. You have to know where the wedding is going to be. It’s not the same. If you live in the mountains or on the beach. Even both locations are fit for a summer weddings it doesn’t mean you were the same thing, just saying.

Another thing to take into account when you’re looking for a tux is a comfort. That does not mean you should be jeans and a leather jacket because that the only thing you’re comfortable in with that said every situation has its limits. That applies to ladies as well don’t think you can show up in the sexiest heel. A lady tux can be more appropriate. Wherever your summer wedding is held, consult a professional tux rental and ask for the proper dress code for the environment. It’s ok to wear something different with moderation keep that mind before jumping into something you can regret.summer wedding

Summer wedding format

All of those who can’t stand formalities. Convince the bride preferably to change the time of her summer wedding for day time. Why do you ask? Daytime summer wedding tends to be less formal than night time summer weddings. It’s also good to have flexibility in your dress code regardless if the occasion. Once you know what you’re getting into weighing your option. Professional can help you find the right material and style of tux. You might be able to get away with wearing shorts if it’s a beach wedding. Better you know what allowed but remember the keynote to make is the time. If it’s a daytime summer wedding, then you’re in luck

Summer Wedding Colors

An added plus of summer weddings that it’s the best time of the year to experiment with bright colors. There are colorful tuxedos if you really like to be different. Ladies experiment with your colors. It’s the best time to try something new. Make sure you make the proper adjustments if decide to go that route. The beauty of a summer wedding is the beautiful color you get to wear. Most people don’t like to experiment with bright colors. I can assure you for summer weddings its consider proper. If your never were purple, try it you never know. Colors on the brighter side are what summer wedding are all about.

Rose Tuxedos AZ is the option for your outdoor summer wedding. Whatever your style or preference our professional will make sure you get what you’re looking for. It’s good to know that professional will make an alteration to custom fit the tuxedo. The goal here is to enjoy yourself and celebrate the occasion.

After Spring is Summer: Are you thinking of Summer weddings?

Tags : 

Although we’re still in Spring, we can start anticipating Summer. Summers are always the best times to have weddings. Why? Well, let’s see… the weather is going to be perfect, most people love to be out on sunny days, and everyone loves summer. Guests’ children are out of school, which means more people will be in attendance, more people, more eyes. You are definitely going to need to rent suits and tuxedos for the occasion.

Bride and Groom

Let us help you match the groom’s tuxedo accents to the wedding color scheme! Cummerbunds, ties, pocket squares, and more; we have a huge collection of colors for even the pickiest bride’s theme! Our high quality tuxedos will make your future husband look the best he ever has. He’ll look so great in a fitted suit rental you’ll beg him to buy it or start wearing at least a suit more often!

Bridal Party

Match your groomsmen to the bridesmaids or have one side of the party in one color from the theme and the other half of the party in another. You can even try a multi-colored approach! Choose a few different colors and pair off groomsmen and bridesmaids for a rainbow affect or any combination of colors in the color spectrum. The only limit is your imagination! Tuxes or suits, the groomsmen will look amazing without outshining the bride or groom. Try a classic look or something more modern!

Guests

Wearing a suit to a wedding is generally accepted. You can’t go wrong with a basic black-and-white ensemble for a wedding. Try a little pop of color for weddings in summer. Try a pink shirt, a baby-blue tie, a yellow pocket square, or ask an associate at Rose Tuxedo what’s popular this summer! Avoid a tuxedo unless told otherwise. Reserve the tuxes for the groom and his men on this special day.

Rent vs. Purchase

Renting a tuxedo is always a great idea. Most people don’t have many occasions to wear a tux, so renting is a great option. You can buy a suit if you wish, but really, how often would you wear one? Renting from Rose Tuxedo is good for your wallet and your style.

A suit, however, can be worn for so many occasions and can be dressed up or down. If you’re a wedding guest and you have several to attend to this summer it may be cost effective to purchase a basic, classic suit and stock up on some colorful shirts, ties, and other accessories so you can attend even the nicest wedding at the last second. Dress it up with a vest or tone it down by losing the tie or leaving the coat at home.

Get your suits from Rose Tuxedo and celebrate with your friends and family members in their union. Help them make that occasion one to remember for a very long time. We also offer men’s warehouse style of purchasing.

Suit Up For Quinceañera Celebrations!

Tags : 

Although a quinceañera party revolves around a 15 year old girl, some important boys in the celebrant’s life are included in her court. Guys, you can’t just turn up at the most important event of your lady friend’s life yet in a pair jeans and t-shirt. You need a suit. Get yourself suited up and do your part in making that day special for her.

In many quinceaneras (quince, for short)there is a court of honor who accompanies the girl of honor alongside her parents and godparents. This group often consists of around 14 boys and girls of the party recipients choosing, half boys and half girls (chamberlanes and damas, respectfully). These boys and girls are expected to dress appropriately (suits and ties or tuxedos for the boys, prom-style dresses for the girls).
Male and female guests are often expected to dress as they would to a wedding and usually in pastel colors. As with a weddings, guest probably shouldn’t assume tuxedo. Feel free to ask the parents or the quince girl what the dress code is and plan accordingly. When in doubt, boys; wear a nice suit.
Since a quince usually features a mass service you should at least plan on dressing as you would at a special church service if a dress code is not established. Once the church service is over it’s usually appropriate to remove the suit jacket and maybe even the tie. It’s wise to keep accessories to a minimum so as not to draw attention away from the quince girl (this goes for guess and members of the court).
Still unsure as to what level of dress to wear? If you’re closely related to the girl you should keep it a little more formal (so definitely a suit and tie) if you’re a close friend but not in the court you may still want to wear a suit. If you’re a friend-of-a-friend, not a close friend, a distant relative, or a guest of a family member you can probably tone it down a few notches but slacks and a nice shirt never hurts.


Some quinceaneras may feature the men wearing vaquero gear, including cowboy-styled gear (jeans, shirt, boots, and large buckle) for a sense of tradition. If you don’t own this gear and you are made aware that people are choosing that, don’t panic. If you’re not a close family member the theme isn’t as important for you to attempt to match.
Some men go in a full suit and tie, others opt for slacks and a buttoned shirt, others go for slacks, a collared shirt, and a nice sweater. It’s important to look nice because if everyone showed up in jeans and a t-shirt it could upset the quince girl and her family. Individuals not adhering to dress expectations can be accused of not taking the event seriously, not caring about the girl, or others things you don’t want people to accuse you of. Being slightly over dressed is better tan severely under-dressed.
Whether you are part of the court or a guest, you will need a suit for the party. You can get yourself the perfect suit for the occasion from Rose Tuxedo. Remember bro, she’s 15 only once, you don’t get a second chance at making that day a memorable day in her life.

4 Vital Elements of making the best tuxedo rental

Tags : 

tuxedo

There are definitely essential elements you need to look out for when making a tuxedo rental. A tuxedo doesn’t just come on it’s own, there are other clothing materials that come together with the tuxedo to give you that all-round exquisite look. 

If you’re renting a tuxedo, chances are it’s for a big ocassion and you’re concerned about giving a good impression of yourself. So, since that is the case, read this article to know how well to make the right choices of these elements while saving cost.

The Neckwear

Many functions and weddings allow for any kind of neckwear whether it is a long black tie or a bow tie but for the most formal and perfect look you must wear a bow tie with a tuxedo. It could make you stand out from rest of the men at the wedding and that is your ultimate goal, to look better than everyone else. Another thing is a self-tied bow tie and it can hugely change your look, because the difference between a readymade bow tie and a self-tied bow tie is like night and day in terms of tuxedos.

Cuff Links and Studs

Tuxedo shirts can be fastened with studs and cuff links or with regular plastic buttons. Most of the people won’t even care to notice your special buttons but those who do, will leave with a great impression thinking that they attended the wedding of a very good and professional man as opposed to if you are wearing a shirt with regular button, they won’t think much of you. Studs and Cuff links also help in boosting the confidence of the person who is wearing them.

Pocket Square

Tux coats mostly have a pocket on the left side and the general rule is that if you have a pocket on the left side of the coat over the chest then there has to be a pocket square in the pocket. Many don’t care to put this in their tuxedos but still look good but the thing is that if you put a pocket square in your coat, you will look even better. There are several ways to fold it but the simplest one that still looks good is straight edge fold.

Shirt

Always wear a white shirt, this should be a rule but since it’s not, many people don’t pay attention to this step and end up wearing black or other colored shirts. Although black shirts do well for other formal events, they should be a no go territory for a wedding. The best masculine effect is achieved by white shirts and a black tux. Another thing to note here is the collar and the best shirt is the one which has a turn-down collar.
