In a paragraph, tell me a little bit about your business and what you offer a bride/groom: Ziggy's Tuxedo & Suits has been suiting up weddings and proms for thousands of Beaver and Allegheny County residents for years. One great thing that has kept us in business all these years is our good reputation for quality, selection, service and price. We still pride ourselves with those same values and our customers keep coming back. We just don't say that "you gonna love the way you look", we prove it to you!
What is the best advice you can give to a couple/bride for their wedding day? Give yourselves time! Shop early so that you are sure that you are making all the right decisions.
What makes your store different from other bridal retailers? Our customers say that they feel the quality in our products and services. Which gives them confidence in picking the perfect outfit for their occasion.
Do you provide alterations? Yes, we do.
Would you try to discourage someone from buying a gown/tuxedo style that is not flattering? Yes, of course! Being honest is still the best policy.
What is your favorite new trend for bridal/formal wear? Fitted tuxedo, suits and flat front trousers.
Budget wise: What would you say is worth the splurge? What could be cut? It is important to look good! When you look good for the right price, you feel good! High prices based just on a designer label isn’t necessary.
What is your favorite bridal tradition? Dressing/suiting up for the wedding.
Cake smash or "don't even think about it? It's fun time so a slight smudge of cake on the nose or mouth is not bad. Cakes are made to be eaten, not worn!
How far out should the bride/groom order their wedding day attire? Two months in advance is good. Measurements are more accurate with this timing.
Has there been any change in your business over the years due to all the wedding shows, such as "Say Yes to the Dress" or "My Fair Weddings?" Not in men's fashion so much.
Have you ever encountered a "Bridezilla?" Momzilla, Yes!
