Rental Terms & Agreement
Formal Wear Retainer
Reserving your wedding party order is the first step in assuring you have a formal wear order for your wedding day. Setting up an order through e-Tux by the Wedding Planners requires a one-time retainer fee of $99.00. The retainer fee is a reservation for order cancellation, late returns, damaged items, non-returned items, or additional shipping fees. The retainer fee is refundable, minus any fees attached, three weeks after your wedding. The retainer fee is not refundable if the wedding is canceled or you cancel the e-Tux service, but you can switch your wedding date once within a 30-day notice.
Additional fees can apply for each late returned item. The retainer fee is also a subtotal for subtracted costs from the total. For example, if an item was missed and returned late, a fee of $20.00 is assessed and deducted from the retainer fee. The returned retainer would be $79.00. Note: each item is barcoded and tracked back into the warehouse when the order is received. So, you will know who wore that item and get reimbursed from them. A $99 refundable retainer is required to start the e-Tux service.
Suit or Tux payments are due when the attendant submits their measurements to the Wedding Planners. Cancellations are accepted up to 16 days before the wedding date for a full refund. Cancellations within 13-15 days of the wedding date receive up to a 50% refund. Refunds are not eligible, and no credit will be given for 12 days up to the wedding date.
Make sure your attendant is aware of their sizes and not guessing. Each attendant should get professionally measured or watch our video instructions. Our online service will do everything possible to make sure all attendants receive notifications. The e-Tux system will be sending you and your attendant’s email reminders to get fitted and send in their measurements and payments. It is essential that we get a current and correct email address for all attendants. All measurements and payments need to be placed 6 weeks before the wedding.
