How to Rent the Perfect Tux

As we barrel head-first into prom season, ladies are looking for the perfect dress online and in every boutique they pass. So much planning goes into every part of their ensemble for the big event! Entire industries focus on ladies’ formal attire needs, but too often men’s options for formal wear are neglected in special occasion planning. We immediately think of the basic black tuxedo, complete with the standard black bow tie and cummerbund when someone mentions men’s formal wear, and while that’s a great option, many men want options to show their individual tastes when it comes to dressing to impress. Many are left wondering how to rent the perfect tux and where they can find the place that will best help them look like a million bucks.

Weary from our six-hour drive from Montgomery, arriving at Monmouth was like reaching an oasis for sleep. Signs directed me to the clearly-marked check-in station, situated in a building next to the main house (I later learned it was originally the kitchen building when Monmouth was a plantation). A sweet and personable staff member welcomed me to the Monmouth Historic Inn and quickly acquainted me with the lay out of the estate and also filled me in on the included breakfast arrangements for the next morning, all while handling my check in proceedings.
