Manny tuxedo shops offer a $40 off coupon for a tuxedo rental but how much are they charging you to begin with? At Rose Tuxedo our prices are listed right when you walk in with no funny business. We do have some premium charges for Tuxedos we don’t own and get from a catalog but most of the time our customers find a awesome designer tuxedo at a great price. Even white tuxedos and grey tuxedos. Sometimes you can even get lucky and shop at thrift stores and maybe find a nice tuxedo, vintage even. But trust me on the $40 off coupons from the big box stores, it’s usually $40 off a $250 tuxedo rental so you still pay $210, go and see and please email me direct if I’m not kidding. firstname.lastname@example.org
The dress. The shoes. The flowers. The jewelry. The makeup. The transportation. The photo package. Who knew prom had the potential to cost as much as some people’s weddings? You’ve got a little bit of time to plan, think, shop and save.
Prom season kicks off around mid-April and continues through early to mid-June in some parts of the country. Most prom nights will fall some time in May. The following tips can help you prepare your budget in advance of the big night. For the ladies it’s about picking the right dress, shoes and make up and accessories. Guys, your lucky!! It’s about picking out a nice designer tuxedo rental at a great price that won’t break the bank. Most rentals come with shoes and a fashion full back vest to match the color of your dates dress. The ladies could easily drop $150 or more to get yourself professionally ready. The expense of hair, makeup and nails could easy cost as much as one Tuxedo rental for prom.
Formal prom portraits can be nice to have, but they can cost $25 to $75 depending on the size and number of photos you buy. Since many digital cameras take great pictures you maybe able to save on this and not stand in line early to get photos.
To rent a limo or not to rent a limo?
Most have 4-hour minimums and also require tipping, so you and your friends should come up with a total cost estimate and then divide that amount by the maximum number of people you’re allowed to squeeze into the limo. But be ready this is not cheap but it is fun and safe. Something to consider when you rent your Tuxedo from a small local tuxedo shop because you will save over a $100 per tux rental sometimes. (put that towards the limo rental fee) Don’t ever be afraid to ask for a discount from all these vendors and explain any hard ship you maybe having, we want you to go to prom, it’s fun and great memories so if we can save you a few dollars I promise all of us Prom Vendors will do it.
Guys, here’s the tip for you: A tuxedo rental can set you back $75 to $100 or more at a small local tuxedo rental shop, so take the time to call several tux rental shops over the phone to compare prices before deciding where to go. Since you probably don’t rent a tuxedo that often be sure the shop will give you all the accessories you’ll need: the designer tux itself, shirt, vest or cummerbund, (if needed a front pocket), shoes, tie or bow tie. Do a quick Google Search in your area and make some calls to local tuxedo rental shops, the price may seem high but it will surely be less than the Big Chain stores and probably much better service and selection. Be careful with the “ tuxedo rental prices starting at” this could just be a simple classic tux in the corner of a shop and then big tux rental fees from a catalog. Going to Prom is not cheap but one of the items (tux) needed to attend doesn’t have to cost you the price to purchase when your only renting. An most importantly to all, have fun and be safe, that’s all us Tuxedo Specialist and other vendors want. www.rosetuxedo.com
