5 Reasons Your Groom Needs to Know about Generation Tux

Okay, before I share what I’m about to share, promise me one thing—You’ll read every­thing I have to say. Agreed? Good. Here it goes:

I work at Gen­er­a­tion Tux. (I sus­pect you already know about Gen­er­a­tion Tux and what it does, but in case you don’t, it’s an online suit and tux rental com­pa­ny.) I’m not a vet­er­an employ­ee by any means, but I have been at Gen­er­a­tion Tux long enough to devel­op trust in the com­pa­ny, and more impor­tant­ly, feel con­fi­dent enough to share that affin­i­ty with oth­ers. If you’re not sure what I mean by that, let me elab­o­rate.

Pri­or to my time at Gen­er­a­tion Tux, I was an event coor­di­na­tor. (I wish I could tell you how many events I have under my belt, but I’m not even sure at this point. A large por­tion was wed­ding-relat­ed, though.) I used to meet with cou­ples all of the time to dis­cuss wed­ding-day plans. Some want­ed to do every­thing sev­er­al months in advance, while oth­ers pre­ferred wait­ing until clos­er to the date. Either way, to me, it didn’t real­ly mat­ter what they end­ed up doing. As long as they were able to make deci­sions they agreed upon and have a peace of mind about said choic­es, that’s all that mat­tered, at least in my pro­fes­sion­al opin­ion.

Even now, I still see it the same way. Any time I have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to speak with a friend or fam­i­ly mem­ber get­ting mar­ried, or any­one else get­ting mar­ried for that mat­ter, I still express the impor­tance of sim­ply mak­ing deci­sions and feel­ing com­fort­able about them. I com­plete­ly understand—getting mar­ried is a big deal. When you’re plan­ning your wed­ding, it’s rea­son­able to want every­thing to be per­fect. After all, your wed­ding marks the begin­ning of your mar­riage and sets the tone for what’s yet to come. It’s also sup­posed to be the cel­e­bra­tion of your love sto­ry.

With that said, it’s imper­a­tive to feel good about the ven­dors you select for your big day. You have to trust that they’re going to take the reins and do every­thing they’re sup­posed to do, to make it the day you’ve always envi­sioned. Aside from meet­ing your expec­ta­tions, though, shouldn’t they sur­pass them? This is why Gen­er­a­tion Tux needs to be on your and your groom’s radar.

Personal Experience

Gen­er­al­ly speak­ing, the idea of rent­ing or buy­ing any­thing online either piques your inter­est or makes you wor­ry. If you fall into the lat­ter cat­e­go­ry, let me share this first. A few months ago, my dad need­ed a suit for a wed­ding. He wasn’t inter­est­ed in buy­ing one, so it was the per­fect sce­nario to have him try Gen­er­a­tion Tux. Togeth­er, we walked through the online process: We picked his suit; answered gen­er­al ques­tions about siz­ing; and pro­ceed­ed with the check­out.

To give you some con­text, my dad is 63 years young. He’s nev­er pur­chased or rent­ed any­thing online, so under­stand­ably, he didn’t know how it would shake out. Why did he do it despite his uncer­tain­ty? Because he trusts me.

Now, fast for­ward to around two weeks before the wed­ding date. My dad’s gar­ments arrived at his doorstep, nonethe­less, and guess what? They fit! I think he even­tu­al­ly decid­ed to get a shirt with a larg­er col­lar, just to have some extra room, but even get­ting that squared away, he said, was no issue.

What’s the point in telling you all of this? I’m doing it because I enjoy being help­ful. I’m also espe­cial­ly grate­ful when peo­ple take their time to sup­port me with some­thing. Whether I’m a Gen­er­a­tion Tux employ­ee or not, or a for­mer event plan­ner, I like to share what I know, per­son to per­son, friend to friend. So here it is: rent­ing a suit or tux any oth­er way is some­thing I’ll prob­a­bly nev­er rec­om­mend. To any­one. (And yes, I know, Justin Bieber will prob­a­bly be dis­ap­point­ed because I said the word ‘nev­er’ here.)

Five Reasons

Before we (as a col­lec­tive) decide on any­thing, we usu­al­ly need to know why some­thing deserves our time and trust, right?
