Q: My fiance really wants to buy a tuxedo instead of renting one, but I'm afraid he will never wear it again and it will be a waste of money. Is buying a tuxedo worth the money?
A: Only you and your fiance can determine if you have a budget to buy a tux and if it's worth the purchase. While we can't make that decision for you, here is something to think about: If your fiance knows for certain that he will need to wear a tuxedo at least once a year, it might be worth looking into purchasing. As far as pricing goes, a good quality tux can cost anywhere from $500 to $1,000 and more for a top-of-the-line designer suit. If the tux is only going to be worn for the wedding, and if you're minding your budget, renting may be the better option.
