Pricing wedding venues and possible honeymoon locations can quickly become overwhelming. Consider into that a budget for the rental of a tuxedo. Tuxedo rentals can range dramatically, depending on the brand and the store at which you shop. In general, however, your tux won't cost nearly as much as the bride's dress.
Tux Rental Won't Break the Bank
According to The Knot, new tuxedos typically cost between $300 and $500 to buy, and renting a tux costs 10 percent to 30 percent of this price. As such, you can expect to pay between $30 and $150 to rent your tux. At high-end shops, of course, these prices are higher. You may also pay more for additional items such as shoes, ties, cuff links or other accessories. If you attend enough black-tie events so that it's no longer cost effective to repeatedly rent tuxedos, buying one is a smart approach. If you're on a tight budget, some stores rent the groom's tuxedo for free, provided his groomsmen pay for their tux rentals there.
