What the rental price of tuxedos in your area?

  1. My husband has been asked to be a groomsmen in our nephew's wedding in May. He went to get the first fitting for the tux this morning. Rental price is $100. Is this the going rate for tuxes today? It has been so long since we got married, I don't remember what we paid for tux rental....

    My husband looked at my nephew and his bride to be, and told them that if they call this off, the bill was coming to them!!!

    Sound about right...I paid right around $120 including shoes for my son for prom this year.

    I'll confess...my husband owns a tux...luckily some things don't go out od style.

    I think my son has paid between 100-150 including shoes, he finally went out and bought his own shoes, it was cheaper than renting them each time.

    haha, thanks kids-r-fun, you made my day

    My oldest is a sophomore in college, he's 20. I think he went to 4 proms before he decided to buy tux shoes. Not sure where he got them, but they are more stylish than the rentals.

    They are about $75 in our area. When we got married, they were on special and we got some free (only like 60 bucks). Usually around here they are cheaper if you get them from the place the bride/bridesmaids got all their stuff.

    My son in a tux, brought tears to my eyes. I should mention that this kids usual wardrobe is sweat pants or mesh shorts and hooded sweat shirts or t-shirts with the sleeves cut off.

    The price included the shoes. This is the only third time in my husband's life that he has wore a tux. Our wedding, his brother's wedding, and now the nephew's wedding.....I am excited to see him in a tux again....!!!!!!

    Hey, kidsrfun - what a handsome kid! He chose the kind of tux that I think is the most attractive, too.

    I don't think it costs so much to rent tuxes in this part of the country. I've got girls, so I've never rented one, but my daughter went with her what-ever to get his, and she didn't mention it being horribly expensive. I don't think he would have gotten one if it was! LOL

    I just ordered two for her. She looks GREAT in them. One is kind of a classic tux and the other has the longer jacket. They're concert garb, but I gave 'em to her for Christmas anyway. Gave her something more to open.

    Love
