Can I rent or buy men’s attire at the destination instead of bringing it all the way from our hometown? THE PRO Chicago-based planner Ali Phillips has planned wedding weekends in Turks and Caicos, Grand Cayman and other far-flung locales.
It’s convenient for the men to not have to travel with a suit or tuxedo not to mention there’s no worrying about lost baggage. But before committing to a menswear game plan, check in and around your wedding location to ensure that what you’re looking for as far as styles whether it’s tux and tails or khakis and linen shirts is available and reserved, so that when the men arrive, they can all go pick up and try on their clothes right away.
Check with the hotel or surrounding area to see if a tailor is available for onsite alterations if necessary. If the guys are traveling with their attire, ask your hotel what services it off ers for pressing or steaming in case the attire gets wrinkled en route.
