To Rent Or To Buy A Wedding Suit? Which One Is Better?

The big day is finally here. A day so big in Los Angeles that sports jackets are going to have to take a backseat, probably for the first time ever.

What could outshine sports jackets in Los Angeles? Rather, what could prompt a man to peel off his protective and comfortable shell-like jacket that was honestly more of a second skin then a piece of cloth to begin with?

Obviously, a wedding.

Getting married to the love of one's life is a momentous occasion, and every man dreams of fulfilling his sweethearts every whim and expectation.

But the truth is, no matter how magical everyone wants this occasion to be, it ends up being pretty expensive. There's a hall to book, dinner for hundreds of guests, fancy invitations to send out, a cake to buy, and God forbid, who can forget the 1-inch piece of jewelry worth a minimum of 3 months’ salary that needs to be placed on the bride's expectant fingers?

With so much going on, and so many bills to pay, the groom usually has to be cautious when selecting a suit.

There are two main options when it comes to getting one's hands on an impressive new suit: renting or buying. Both buying and renting have their advantages and disadvantages.


There's a lot going on during wedding time and the expenses can certainly add up. A suit can feel like a potentially unnecessary expense with so many other important things going on.

Buying a wedding suit can have a huge range, anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars, depending on the material and brand. However, renting the same suit will always be less expensive. Economically speaking, renting is the best way to go.


Weddings require a very unique and very expensive suit style. If a person attends many fancy parties or still has to attend the wedding of their siblings and other close family members, buying the suit is a better idea. If the suit can be worn more than once, buying the suit will definitely pay off when it has time to take the limelight on multiple other occasions.

Buying or renting a suit for one's wedding is a tough decision to make. The most important thing to consider when selecting the method through which one is going to acquire their suit is affordability and wearability. Either way, whether a groom decides to rent his suit or buy it, looking sharp will surely sweep one's sweetheart off her feet, once again.
