Gilbert: We’ve got your back at Rose Tuxedos

Tags : 

Is your big day coming soon? Your prom? The day your get married? Or maybe you’re the best man? Are you the father of the bride or groom? Perhaps you have a job interview coming up. Could be you have an audience with the Queen.  Whatever the reason, there is only one place to go to get yourself dressed up in a very fitting formal wear for the best impression of yourself.  That is Rose Tuxedo Rentals.  In fact, there are several locations surrounding the Phoenix area: Central Phoenix, Northwest Phoenix, and Mesa. So, dear people of Gilbert, AZ, you are never far away when you need assistance with your celebration attire.

Having the correct ensemble for a special occasion is not always as easy as it may seem.  First there is deciding on the style.  Yes, tuxedos come in several styles. A gentleman has more choices than just black in today’s formal wear colors.  There are blacks, dove grays, and white choices, for example.  And, the style of the suit can also vary.  Some tuxedos and formal suits can have vests in a large choice of colors and styles. Neckties can also be chosen in myriad colors, textures, and forms.

This is why Rose Tuxedo is such a sought-after location for men who need tuxedos.  This company has been in business for over 30 years, so they know everything there is to know about celebratory fashion. In our more casual culture of the 21st century, most men have not invested in a formal suit or a tuxedo .  Therefore, when a momentous event requires their attendance, they are not prepared to go to their closets and find the correct clothing.  Call Rose Tuxedo, they can help, and they are as close as cell phone.

What about shoes?  Again, many men, young men in particular, may not own their own formal shoes.  In a wedding it is likely that the bride will want to have all the groomsmen wearing the same type shoe.  This is not a problem for Rose Tuxedo.  They rent formal shoes.  Their inventory is extremely large, so it is easy for them to alter a suit on the spot, and find a shoe in almost any size that is ever needed.

If you are new to tuxedo renting, or if you have been around this block many times before, you will find the service at Rose Tuxedo far beyond your expectations.  The staff is well-versed in the business of dressing men for special events.  They want their customers to feel comfortable;  find exactly what they want;  and leave feeling like a million bucks.  Naturally, there are consultants for the bride, as well. When she is coordinating her wedding and deciding on colors, flowers, and ambience of her wedding, someone will be there to assist her.  The wedding consultants at Rose Tuxedo are experienced and gracious.  They will also attend to the details of a graduation party or a Quinceanera.

Isn’t it nice to know that in our somewhat chaotic world, there is a place where others care and genuinely want to help?  That place is Rose Tuxedo.  All you Gilbert folks need to remember to go to Rose Tuxedo if you have a celebration coming up.  Meet the staff, and see for yourself that, as far as Rose Tuxedo is concerned, the customer comes first.

Do’s And Do Not’s Of Festive Ties

Tags : 

Christmas is right around the corner, so someone’s bound to invite you to some sort of Christmas or other Holiday-themed festivities! Be it Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Office party, family party, or a holiday downtown adventure, it never hurts to be a little festive. Whether you have a tie with snowmen or a tie with candy cane stripes, or you’re looking for an excuse to buy a super-flashy tie, we have you covered. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we’ll direct you to where to go. In the meantime, read ahead to know when and where to wear different holiday-themed ties.

Do:

  • Wear them for an ice breaker- It’s a good way to get a conversation started or to grab the attention of someone who catches your fancy.
  • Own it! We don’t mean purchase it, borrowing or rentals are allowed. We’re talking attitude. If you put on a tie with a light up menorah or a string of Christmas lights sewn in, don’t be embarrassed. Act like it’s the most gorgeous tie in the world and it makes you look awesome.
  • Keep it classy. For things like office parties or events where you’re trying to impress in-laws, parents of your girlfriend, or other similar situations, you may want to stick to the classier option of candy-cane-esque stripes or something subtle like snowflakes. Don’t wear the Rudolph tie or the “Ho Ho Ho” Santa tie to a wedding.
  • Keep it clean when children will be present. Some novelty ties are emblazoned with questional references. Be aware of who will be at these parties or events. We don’t need grandma or your little nephew getting upset or confused by the words (or actions) on your tie.
  • Keep it fun: It’s Christmas. You don’t have to wear a full suit to throw on a festive tie. You also don’t need to keep it fully tied and tight all night.
  • Opt for a goofy holiday tie for the “Ugly Christmas” parties—you’ll look much better in a goofy tie than an ill-fitting sweater. Catch the eye of the cute girl under the mistletoe.
  • Try a festive bow tie– especially with a higher collared shirt.

Don’t:

  • Feel pressured. If you don’t want to wear a festive tie- don’t. You can go with holiday colors instead. Or no tie at all.
  • Mix patterns: If you’re wearing a flashy tie, keep the rest of the outfit solid colors (socks excluded. Christmas socks are awesome).
  • Wear with a t-shirt. This is a general rule for all of your life.
  • Be aware of colors. Avoid clashing colors or different shades of the same color (ex: Red in the tie, but a darker or light red shirt).
  • Covet thy neighbor’s tie! If someone shows up to the party with a cooler tie than you, don’t get mad—make a friend!
  • Ignore the fun of a festive tie. If you’re a father, you will receive at least one holiday-themed tie in your life. Wear it proudly. Your children will love that you wear their gift to you with pride. Wear it immediately and don’t take it off until everyone goes home.

Whatever you do this Christmas, be safe. If you end up with a tie around your head and you’re singing into a lampshade, find a way to get home safely. Be careful in traffic, and don’t let the awkward relatives make Christmas any less enjoyable. And as always, Rose Tuxedo is here for all of your suit and tux needs.

Look Great in Christmas Party Photos!

Tags : 

If you’re going to a Christmas party this year, chances are someone is going to take pictures (posed or candid) so make sure you look great in any and all photos at the festive parties this year by following our advice!

If your party does not warrant a full suit, try a more casual look with jeans and a suit jacket, or jeans and a suit vest. Or, stick with nice slacks and a tie. You can piece out a suit (rental or purchased) to achieve many levels of great fashion with ease. Today we’ll talk about some general tips to keep you looking sharp in all photos this holiday season.

Get a fresh haircut. Chances are, you’ll be seeing some friends and family you don’t see very often. People may be coming in from out of town to see you and other loved ones, so spruce up a little, get those sideburns trimmed, and even out the back a little. Even a haircut at a cheap or bargain barber shop can help you look like a million bucks.

Keep shirts and pants wrinkle free. Nothing screams “I don’t care,” more than a wrinkled tie or suit pants with un-needed creases. If you fold your dress shirts and pants, iron those fold creases out before you wear them! Have them dry-cleaned if you must (especially if you lack an iron or the ability to iron clothing).

Try one piece of festive clothing per outfit. Ugly Christmas sweater parties are all the rage right now, but if you’re not going to one of those, do not overdo it on the holiday themed items. Stick to a tie, socks, or vest, not all three. Speaking of the “ugly Christmas sweater” look, please avoid the Ugly Christmas Sweater Suit that is going viral online right now. Just, don’t. Unless it’s an aforementioned themed party. Then go ahead and do it! Ask us and maybe we can bring one in for rental.

Do not over dress too much, and do not under dress. It’s ok if you spruce your outfit up a bit and go a bit above the dress code, but if it’s a casual party it is best to avoid a full tuxedo. If it’s a party that requests formal attire (like business-related events) then it might not be wise to show up in jeans and a sports coat. Read our previous blog about dressing for the event here.

Relax! It’s Christmas, just don’t fall asleep with your mouth open with a gravy stain on your shirt or tie and the photos will probably end up fine. Do something foolish after drinking too much egg nog and you might end up as a new meme via Facebook. Be comfortable, be fashionable, and smile; make these moments with your family count and all of the photos will be cherished.

For taking a Christmas Card photo, why not go a little extra fancy and make you and your family look the best they can with a suit rental (or a pieced out suit as previously mentioned) and a little extra care taken in the appearance of all of those in the photo. Make other families jealous of how perfect you and your loved ones look on the Christmas card!

What You’re Saying With Your Winter Formal Outfit

Tags : 

Guys, Winter Formal may be coming up at your High School (or College, whatever) so be prepared to look your best and impress all of the ladies—or be prepared to look like a fool if you don’t rent your suit or tux from Rose Tuxedo to look the best you can for this big dance.

  1. Full Tuxedo: Assuming it actually fits (like it will when renting from us), you’ll look like a super spy, celebrity, or just darn good. However, if you’re the only one at the dance in a tuxedo, you may look out of place—but at least you’ll look great. Avoid doing this if you’re going stag or with a group.
  2. Three Piece Suit: This shows that you understand fashion and you spent a little extra money for that third piece. It allows you to remove the coat while still looking extra-awesome. Some may view it as “trying too hard,” but your date won’t think so.
  3. Two-Piece Suit: Simple. Basic. Classic. You can’t go wrong here. Match your tie or shirt to your date’s dress and you’re a power couple.
  4. Suit that is too small: This looks like you bought a suit Freshman year and you’ve had a growth spurt. Don’t wear this. If you can’t move or breathe, or the world can see your elbows and calves, it’s time to donate it to a little brother or cousin.
  5. Suit that is too big: Hand-me-downs are a great way to save money, but not at the expense of looking like a little boy playing in his dad’s closet. Get it altered or save it for when you grow into it.
  6. Slacks and a dress shirt: This is great for a casual look (as long as all pieces fit, preferably with a tie added and nice dress shoes) but it also doesn’t look like you tried. If you want to impress the ladies, you better have some great dance moves if you show up like this.
  7. Slacks and a suit vest: This is a great alternative to the three piece (or even traditional 2-piece) suit. You may come off as a bit of a hipster, but you may also come off as suave and interesting. You’ll stand out, but you may get a little chilly—keep that suit jacket handy.
  8. Jeans and a dress shirt: You really look like you’re not trying. Or, like you’re trying too hard to not be trying hard—if that makes sense. This isn’t a middle school dance, class it up a bit, bro.
  9. Anything that doesn’t involve a dress shirt or slacks: Just don’t. You’ll look like you don’t care and it’ll be more impressive if you skip the dance altogether and go for a “I’m so over school dances,” attitude.

When you’ve got your date picked and she has her dress colors ready, coordinate and rent your suit, tux, or other options with Rose Tuxedo. Our prices can fit any budget and we’ll make you look (and feel) like a million bucks for the Winter Formal. Start planning now, guys! The ladies will appreciate an early invitation.

should i hire a dj for my wedding

Should you hire a DJ or a band?

This is a question we here from Bride and Groom’s all the time. The simple answer people think is, if you can afford a band then why not. I’ve been too a lot of wedding’s over my years in the Bridal and Tuxedo business and I love live music but sometimes having a DJ is not only cheaper but you can keep the music going and have all the songs you desire played, and when you want them played.

 

Some songs do sound way better when played by a live band and you can’t beat the reaction of the guest when some songs are play. Very hard to create with a DJ but some DJ really interacts and tries very hard to get the guest in the mood.

 

When you hire a DJ you usually meet with them way before the wedding and share your desired music you want played. One of the downsides of hiring a band is they maybe limited with the selection of music they offer. They maybe a great band but they may not know much about 80’s music or current vibes.

 

What people also forget is when you hire a DJ you also get an Emcee kind of. Usually a good DJ will keep the guest involved and help with all the formalities that go along with weddings, like toast, first dance, bride and Dad dance and the throwing Garter and flowers.

 

Space for a DJ or Band is also a huge concern. If the venue is big then you can go either way but if you’re wedding reception is in your back yard it maybe too small for even a drum set and the neighbors may not like either.

 

Can you skip a DJ and Band and create your own playlist and let it rip? Sure. This may save you a lot of money but like my friend Tony say’s from System Mobile DJ in Phoenix, AZ, playing your own music always has it’s issues and have more to deal with during a wedding reception than keeping the music flowing.

 

At Rose Tuxedo in Phoenix and Mesa we can help make your DJ look good with a Tuxedo that matches your theme or a vest and bow tie. And of course we can take care of your entire wedding guest with the latest designer tuxedos, from the Grey Allure tuxedo to a Blue slate tux and even some old school Double Breasted suits. We have 3 locations to serve you and the best Fall Wedding Tuxedo rental prices and selection. Best wishes to all. We also have a preferred Wedding vendor page on our Rose Tuxedo web site that can help you choose a great DJ, Wedding Cake company and more.
