Written by Alyssa Kozal May 24, 2019

Customarily, weddings can be very expensive and often take some time to save up for.  As your wedding approaches, you are likely to feel like you are bleeding money as you consider all of the small details to include and items to purchase. Fortunately, there are a number of wedding companies offering try before you buy options which are the best wedding planning resources when you’re facing emptying your pockets for the big day.  These companies offer you the opportunity to try their products without any obligation to purchase or commit. In your wedding planning process, you should definitely take advantage of as many of these trial options as you can as it will be helpful in curating the day of your dreams.

Our try before you buy option is a great wedding planning resource allowing engaged couples to check out suiting and tuxedos in person before asking their group to buy. The items sent are brand-new, never worn, and can be purchased if you love them!  If you are not certain on the color of suiting that you would like, we will also provide a selection of fabric swatches sent to your home so that you may use to compare to bridesmaid dress fabrics or any other element of your wedding.   If you decide to proceed with The Groomsman Suit for the groom and groomsmen, we have a fantastic tool to help keep the guys on track and organized.  With our Wedding Group Tracker you can create a look, manage your party and send reminders to your wedding party all from a single dashboard!

Beyond the groom and groomsmen apparel, the groom must also select his wedding band. While this may seem like a fairly easy process, it is certainly a decision you want to make with some thought. Afterall, you will be wearing this band for the rest of your life!  Luckily, there is a company called Hitched that has you covered! Hitched’s try on option allows grooms to try on five band options at home with no risk or obligation to purchase.
