What packages do you offer?
We offer complete packages, which features everything including shoes, along with partial packages and basic packages to fit the needs and budget of every bridal party.
What is the price range for your packages?
Complete packages range from $189.95-$229.95. Partial packages range from $99.95 to $139.95. Basic packages (black only) are $99.95 or $109.95.
Do you do any discounts?
Yes! When ordering five or more packages, the groom’s is FREE! Also, bridal party members of Dress Gallery brides are eligible for additional discounts based on packages chosen.
Can I try on the tuxes when I come for my consultation?
We don’t have the exact styles here to try on in-store; they are housed by our rental company. We do, however, have sizer styles for you to try on for sizing purposes. Our menswear specialists will build a mannequin for you to show the completed look as closely as possible.
What size ranges do you offer?
For Men’s sizing, our sizes range from 35R – 60R. Additional sizes above 60 are available depending on style. For boys sizes, we range from 3T – 16.
When should we schedule our consultation / when do we need to order?
We recommend scheduling your tuxedo consultation at least 6 months prior to your wedding. We like to order your group about 2 months prior to your wedding. This four month gap gives your group more than enough time to get measured, submit payment, and make any changes you might have.
Can I purchase a tux instead of renting?
Yes! We have a stunning collection of suit colors available for purchase. Our rental suits and tuxedos are occasionally available for purchase, but that is at the discretion of our rental company.
Where do the tuxes come from?
We are proud partners with Skeffington’s Formalwear based out of Des Moines, Iowa. They also have a location in Kansas City, Missouri. During the busier season, a member of the Skeffington’s staff drives the tuxes to us each week. During the slower season, they are shipped via UPS to us.
When can we pick up our rentals?
Rentals arrive the week of the wedding, normally sometime on Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, once we’ve inspected the garments for correct color/style/size, we send out text messages to the entire bridal party letting them know they can come try on their rentals.
When do the rentals need returned?
All rentals must be returned to Dress Gallery by 6pm Monday following the wedding. Late items are subject to late fees and forfeiture of the bride & groom’s deposit. Our rental company charges us for late items, so we must pass those fees on. If Dress Gallery is closed Monday, rentals are due back Tuesday by 6pm.
What if my items don’t fit?
With rental items, small fit anomalies are common, so thankfully here at Dress Gallery, we have a full replacement process available and we can do small alterations here in house. If pants or coats needs lengthened/shortened, buttons moved, etc., Dress Gallery will happily fix that free or charge. You can wait while we finish or come back and pick up at your convenience.
If items need replaced, we order those items by Thursday at 4pm so they are overnighted to us on Friday morning. Therefore we encourage bridal party members to try their tuxes on before Thursday afternoon. If a groomsman can’t make that deadline, we have a system in place to ensure the best fit.
What if a groomsmen damages an item?
If an item comes back damaged beyond a reasonable repair, it must be paid for. The bride and groom pay a security deposit for this purpose, but we prefer to have the guilty party pay for the item so the entirety of the deposit can go back to the bride and groom.
Where can we see all the styles?
Our styles can be seen on the Menswear board via our Pinterest page!
What if I have out-of-town groomsmen?
We understand! Thankfully, we’re experts at fitting out of towners. We suggest they go to their local seamstress or tailor to get their measurements taken, then submit them to us via our website. We can then reach out directly to them to confirm fit and take payment!
What if my wedding is out of town?
Unfortunately, Dress Gallery does not rent tuxedos to wedding occurring outside of a 3 hour driving radius. Logistically, it becomes hard to make sure all items have been returned to us in a timely manner. For the sake of our menswear department, we have placed this limitation.
Can I rent my package for longer than just the weekend?
Yes! If you need a longer rental time, please let the consultant know first thing. A standard rental is for one weekend, meaning Wednesday through Monday. If you need the package for longer than that, we simply charge time and a half – meaning you’ll pay full price for the first weekend, but half price for the second weekend.
Do you price match?
Price matching is tricky. Because we are a small business partnering with a rental company, our package prices are often set by them. We will do our best to price match a comparable package at another location, but due to the variable nature of rental pieces, it’s difficult. We will only price-match another Wichita brick-and-mortar store’s prices, no online rentals or sales.
What are your cancellation policies?
If your wedding gets postponed, no penalties will occur. We will happily transfer your deposit and payments to your new wedding date. If your wedding is cancelled more than 2 weeks prior to the event, the deposit is forfeit and there is a cancellation fee of $40 per package rented. If the wedding is cancelled with less than 2 weeks in advance, there are no refunds.
What if I have a groomswoman?
First of all, YAS HONEY. Secondly, we’d love to style your groomswomen! Our suits are made for men but can often be fitted smaller to fit a woman’s body. Pants are often the one item that groomswomen might have to get themselves, as depending on your hip measurement, you might need more room than men’s pants would provide. The rest? We can style you to perfection!
