Tuxedo FAQs and Tips

When should I begin looking for tuxes or suits for my upcoming wedding?
The process for men’s attire can begin as early as you are ready. With the excitement of wedding planning, it is very common for brides/grooms to start their order 4 to 6 months in advance. If your wedding is being planned very quickly, we can definitely accommodate you, even if your wedding is next week!

I have a lot of guys out of town; Can I still get their tuxedos from Mia’s Bridal?
Of course! We can take care of guys from ALL over the country! We are 1 of 1500 Elite Retailers for Jim’s Formal Wear throughout the US. Your guys that are not local can get measured at any formal wear provider in their area. The best places to be measured can be found HERE! They can submit their measurements to us at the link below.

When should I have my groomsmen fitted?
Your men can get measured as early as they desire, however we suggest about 2 months in advance so that the sizes/styles can be reserved. This ensures the guys do not gain/lose too much weight before the actual fitting the week of the wedding. If a member does fluctuate after measurements are taken, they can get resized 2-3 weeks before the wedding.

My ring bearers are still growing, when should they be measured?
We want them measured as close to the wedding as possible. Usually 2-3 weeks before the wedding is ideal so that the least amount of growth remains.

Is there a second fitting involved?
You bet! The tuxedos are typically in store 2-3 days before the wedding (during peak season it could be 1-2 days before). The guys will need to be available at that time to try on their tuxes to ensure a proper fit. Last minute adjustments can be done in store while the guy waits.

Do all my men have to pick up the tuxes at Mia’s Bridal? 
Yes. We offer personal attention to ensure a proper fit for the wedding day. If someone is unable to pick up their own tuxedo, it can be picked up by a member of the party once it is paid in full. We then ask that it be tried on as soon as possible so that we can do any last minute adjustments if needed.

Do I have to make an appointment for fittings? 

Not necessarily, if it is a small group that needs fitted, walking in is fully acceptable. If we need to measure a whole party or a group of 4 or more plans on coming in to try on, a call ahead would be appreciated.

When should the tuxedos be returned? 
The tuxedos will be due back the following business day. Please note that during our regular season, we are closed on Sundays and Mondays, so the return will take place on Tuesday between 9am-6pm.

During the months of April and May we will be open on Sunday from 1pm-5pm (or 2pm-4pm) for returns. Be sure to ask a consultant for return details.

* Return dates will vary for events not on Friday or Saturday

What is included with the tuxedo rental? 
All of the full tuxedo packages include the coat, pant, shirt, vest, tie, shoes and cuff links. We can also customize package to be less formal. We have a “Casual Chic” package which includes any pant, shirt, vest and tie.  Suit packages do not include shoe rentals, however they can be added for a small fee.

What is the fitting process?
Your measurements will take place 2-3 months before the wedding (If it is a child under the age of 12, 2-3 weeks before the event is best). The tuxedo will come in based on the measurements that are provided or taken. The tuxedo will be available for try on a couple of days before the wedding. At that time, we will do any adjustments or alterations as needed, and then you will be set to take your tuxedo with you (once payment has been made)!

When can I pick up my tuxedo? 
Depending on the day of the event, the tuxedos will be available to pick up 1 or 2 days prior to the event. You can check with the bride and groom to see if your tux has arrived or call us directly at 913.764.9114 to check on the status.
