V.I.P. Frequently Asked Questions
All special events - weddings, proms, bar mitzvahs, quinceaneras or school dances - require some preparation; and with that comes questions. V.I.P. would like to make this process a smooth one, so we've answered some of the most frequently asked ones we get...
How soon should I reserve my tuxedo?
The earlier you reserve your tuxedo, the better selection you’ll have to choose from. Some of the most popular styles tend to go quickly during prom and wedding season. We recommend you visit or call us at least 2-3 months before your event. However, if you need a tux even as late as the day of the event, we can accommodate you. We have an extensive in-store inventory.
Do I need to make an appointment?
It’s not necessary; however, if you have a big wedding party or group, we recommend you schedule an appointment. Simply call us at 732-785-0400. Monday thru Thursday: 11am – 8pm, Friday: 11am – 5pm; Saturday: 10am – 5pm; and Sunday: 12 – 4pm.
How much does a tuxedo rental cost?
Your price really depends on the actual style you pick but we have tuxedo packages to fit any budget.
Should I wear a vest or cummerbund?
This is a matter of personal preference. Currently, formal vests are much more popular than cummerbunds and have a more "finished" look.
What does it mean when an invitation reads "black tie"?
"Black tie invited" means that you should wear formal attire (a tuxedo and accessories). "Black tie optional" means wearing a tuxedo is optional.
