1 Month Prior:

  • All local wedding party members should have their measurement appointments scheduled with us by now.

  • Make sure all out-of-town wedding party members have submitted their measurements to Prince Albert Tuxedos through theSubmit Measurements Link. Feel free to call us at this point to see if all measurements have been received.

  • If there are growing children or young adults in your group, keep in mind that there likely may be changes in sizes at the final fitting, due to growth.


  • Many people try to lose weight for weddings. Be advised that this may well lead to alterations at the final fitting.

1-2 Weeks Prior:

  • Call for all party members Final Fitting appointments. These Final Fittings typically begin after 4 pm two days prior to the event. 

  • Remember: In store try-on is required for all party members, to  ensure the proper fit we guarantee and the perfect look the bride and groom request. Please advise all party members to plan time accordingly for this final fitting. Typically, each person can plan on 20 - 30 minutes. No need to all come at the same time.


  • If any last minute adjustments are needed, we will take care of you.

3 Months Prior:

ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS ARE KEY TO PROPER FIT. Please stress to your party that professional measurements are a must, as tuxedos do NOT fit like jeans & casual clothing. We use "TuxedoFit" to make it easier for out-of-town wedding party members to find a professional in their area for accurate measurements and then send to Prince Albert Tuxedos online.

  • Advise local party members to schedule their measurement appointment with us for ONE month prior to your wedding date.
