Over the past few years, we’ve seen a shift in bridal party attire that we’re 100% on board with. There’s no question weddings have been – for the most part – all about you, the bride. But in this new stylish direction, we’re seeing your groom and his best mates beginning to make dapper statements of their own.
And we here at Fab You Bliss are thrilled to see this change! It’s about time, don’t you think?
With grooms playing a bigger part in the look and feel of the wedding, there’s no doubt you’ll want to find the best of the best when it comes to their attire, right?
Have no fear, we have the perfect tuxedo rental experience for your groom and his men.
Cue The Black Tux, an online platform for renting stylish, quality suits and tuxedos starting at a $95 price point. How’s that for stylish and affordable?
The Black Tux was founded in 2013 by Andrew Blackmon and Patrick Coyne, longtime friends who while preparing for Andrew’s wedding in 2011, saw an opportunity to offer men an alternative to traditional tuxedo and suit rental outlets.
After their poor experience renting for Andrew’s wedding, they decided to explore different ways to improve the tuxedo rental process and turn it into a more enjoyable experience. Fast forward almost 2 years later and The Black Tux is serving customers all over the country from San Francisco to Chicago to New York, making sure guys look and feel their best for any black tie occasion.
Currently, The Black Tux offers 4 tuxedo styles and 3 suit styles. Here’s a closer look at the collection.

While we still love to see a gorgeous black tie wedding, we really love the latest trend of a groom and his groomsmen each wearing suits and ties that are a bit different from each other, yet still coordinate together. We think this creates a more casual look that lets the guys stand out a bit, with your groom taking center stage among them, of course. We hope to see even more couples venturing into this style soon!
Either way, traditional or inventive, black tie or casual, we think utilizing The Black Tux is a sure way to go!
