Kansas City Missouri Weddings...Tuxedo & Dress
Let's face it, most men do not like to wear a tuxedo, but for a one time deal for your wedding and to make your bride happy, it is certainly worth doing. And you know what they say, if something is worth doing, it is worth doing well. So, in order to make sure that that happens, making use of the professional services of a quality tuxedo shop is imperative. And the same goes for the bride. Finding a professional bridal salon is the only way to go. The Kansas City area has some excellent choices for you in both arenas. The only thing that we highly recommend is that you make sure that you find a place that fits you. It is easy to think that any place that says they are a formalwear shop will probably be able to service your formalwear needs. But this would be a huge mistake on your part. Remember, your wedding only comes around once. You want to look your absolute best. And the way to do that is by purchasing the groom's tuxedo and the bride's gown at professional and reputable shops. Below we have provided a guide that should get you started on your search as well as help look your absolute best on your wedding day.
For the bride, figure out what gown styles you really like. Do a lot of research online and in wedding magazines figuring out your likes and dislikes. You will want to take all of this with you to your bridal shop visits. We cannot tell you strongly enough to take your time when you start shopping for that perfect dress. When you start to make appointments at local salons that have a great reputation, try and make them on a weekday if at all possible. And even better yet, schedule them for the morning time. In terms of your overall wedding schedule, we recommend that you start looking as early as possible because it take s a lot of time to find your perfect dress, have it delivered, fitted and then altered. And more than likely you will need to have three fittings or more. Keep an open mind wherever you go. You may go into a bridal salon with only one dress style on your mind. But keep in mind that what a dress looks like in a picture or on a hanger can be very different than what it looks like on you. Ask the consultant if you are able to customize. Not only are gowns available in different shades, they can also be accessorized in various ways like a unique sash or a belt. You might be able to combine different elements from different gowns. Most high quality bridal salons really cater to their clients so we would be shocked if they did not bend over backward to please you. You need to know before you go into any bridal salons that the alterations you have done will not be included in your overall price. The reason for this is that salons are not sure how much needs to be done on a per dress basis so it would be hard for them to set a price. Some people may only need one fitting while others may need three. If you are really in a crunch in terms of your budget or the money you have available, ask if you could check out some samples. You many get lucky and find that perfect dress that you really like. And the price will certainly be right. The only thing that you really need to be sure of is the construction of the dress. Because many sample have been picked over multiple times, make sure that you do a thorough check of the dress to see if there are any major problems that can't be fixed. Some salons will steam your dress when it comes in, find out if this is the case.
In terms of the groom, there are also some definite factors that you will want to keep in mind. The first issue that needs solving is the age old question: should you rent or buy. This depends on whether you will be needing a tuxedo at anytime in the future, especially the near future. Are you going to be attending multiple formal events in the next 3 to 5 years? If you know that you are, then purchasing a tuxedo is the route that you will want to go. But if your wedding is the only event you can think of that you will ever wear formalwear, then renting is your avenue. Renting will cost you a lot less as well. A tuxedo will cost about 10% to 30 % of what it costs to buy one. Bring your bride to the formal wear store. This is an absolute must. Ask your friends for recommendations of shops that you should visit. Make sure that the store has an updated inventory. Another key is to find a formalwear shop that has very experienced and knowledgeable staff. We cannot stress this enough. The expertise that they can provide will be invaluable. If any shop you visit has employees that try to do a hard sell on something they say you must have, walk out. Make sure that the shops you go to have a nice variety of cummerbunds, cufflinks, suspenders, and shoes. Ask all of your groomsmen to visit the same shop. This way you will be assured of everyone matching. And many times you will get some kind of discount if you do.
For both the bride and groom, you will want to do your due diligence and make sure you are visiting high quality shops that are going to give you great advice and have the inventory to satisfy what you want to try on. Once you do this it will be a cakewalk to looking your best on your big day.
