    Urgent Help Needed- Wedding In Crisis

    My dork brother does not have a suit nor a tux for his wedding on July 30th and the guy is broke.

    He asked me for money- I don't think I can afford a tux rental.
    I was going to let him use my David's Bridal credit card (that I got when I bought Rose's flower girl dress)- but NONE of the David's in Colorado rent tuxes- NONE.

    Does anyone here have either a suit or a tux he could borrow- rent? Whatever?

    My brother is about 6'1" or 2"- moderate build- neither heavy nor thin. I can get measurements if needed.

    HELP?? Ideas? Anything?

    I am open to ideas- since I have never helped with these things before- I will pay shipping whatever- if anyone can assist?

    Sounds like the whole thing is off to a fabulous start.
    I'd suggest local dry cleaners or theatre groups (for left/abandoned suits or costumes respectively), churches, etc. Sorry you've been put in this position at all. Best of luck to everyone involved.

    OK, just clarifying - it's his own wedding, and two weeks before the wedding, he hasn't thought about what he's going to wear?

    I know he's your brother, but I'm not sure why it's your problem to solve this situation that he's in.

    Re: Urgent Help Needed- Wedding In Crisis

    What kind of wedding is it? Perhaps there are alternatives to a tux?

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: Urgent Help Needed- Wedding In Crisis

    At the risk of sounding judgemental I have to ask why does a man need to get married while broke and irresponsible? Dosent sound like a good start to a marriage. just wondering.

    Re: Urgent Help Needed- Wedding In Crisis

    Ok- judgements are NOT needed. Thank you.

    I am helping because he is my brother and he came to me for help. The wedding has tapped his funds and he's a guy- I don't know how much input she has had on his clothing choices for the ceremony.

    I may be able to swing a rental- I called and did some research after I posted- so there may be a light at the end of the tunnel.

    He has pants- may only needs to rent the top half

    Thanks for any reasonable suggestions.

    Ya know- had I known that people would jump to such conclusions without knowing all the facts I would not have thought to go to the MC community for help.

    I don't need to defend the fact that my brother finds himself short of funds just before the wedding and I am a little ashamed of some of the reactions I have gotten here when I though I could come to this group for help and good advice.

    Thanks very much.

    Can I get a tux by tomorrow?
    Mister Neat's can actually get you a tuxedo THE SAME DAY that you need it. But, for a wider selection of choices we ask you reserve your tuxedo at least 24-48 hours in advance of the event date.



    How much do tuxedo rentals cost?
    Tuxedo rental base prices start at $59.95 and range up to $129.95. Customers may upgrade any tuxedo by adding shoes or upgrading their accessories. Full back vests are included in every tuxedo rental. Accessory upgrade prices range from $5 - $30.

    Now, it may not be the "dream" tux, but I'm sure if you all get together, you could scrape up the $60 for the minimal tux, can't you?

    Thank you- this is who I called. She said they run $99-129 and she will cut $30 from the price and shoes run around $15-20.

    This may end up being his wedding present- at least part of it. Maybe I'll split it with him- but thanks very much for looking that up for me.

    I remeber you asking me a question on a previous post of mine that was simular to mine and I thought we had that same kind of openess here. Im sorry to make you have to defend yourself.

    I have a brother that does the same thing and I have to ask him the whys before I plan to help him.

    I think you should probably thank the people at MC for asking the hard questions.
