Happy Prom Day for all you out there who are going. Unfortunately, this isn`t my prom and sadly I actually never went to mine either. Oh well...At least, my kids get to enjoy theirs.
Anyways, this is my oldest son here on the picture. Please excuse the blurry face, I didn`t have his permission to post this on my blog, lol, so I find it appropriate to blur his face since I want to focus more on the attire that he is wearing on this special event.
A couple weeks before prom, we went to Du Bois Forwal Wear to rent a tuxedo for him. They were running a special for prom tuxedo rentals and you were allowed to draw one card with a discount on it. They were between $40, $50, to 50% off.
He chose this dark grey suit with light pink vest and bow tie so that he could match with his date, who is also wearing a light pink dress. The rental included everything he is wearing here and the shoes. The total cost before the discount is $169.95. I got a $40 discount, which brought my total down to $129.95.
I`ve never went tuxedo shopping so I can imagine they can run anywhere from $300 to $600. Or if you really shop around, perhaps you could get it for cheaper but I felt that since I didn`t start shopping a little earlier for it, that renting would be less of a hassle.
My son has a very slender frame and finding men`s clothes that fit him has been a challenge since he is at that awkward age. The lady that fitted him said he is wearing the smallest size they have. I guess it`s a good thing that was available.
For those of you who have looked at tuxedo rentals, what are the typical price range you`ve come across? Would you rather buy or rent for a formal event? Where do you buy your tux?
