I’m excited to introduce you to the newest client to join the I DO PR roster. Say hello to Menguin. Menguin is a fast growing online tuxedo rental company that is revolutionizing one of the most annoying parts of wedding planning.
Every year, grooms and groomsmen must face the pain that is tux rental with ugly suits, several appointments, hours of wasted time, and annoying upselling. I won’t name names, but I’m pretty sure you know who I mean… After experiencing the pain themselves, the guys at Menguin decided to bring the experience to the 21st century, making it painless, quick, affordable and, dare I say, even fun.
You pick the tux or suit, customize it with your favorite accessories (including hundreds of colors), and get it delivered right to your door. They have incredible customer service to always make sure the guys get their suits on time and even replace anything that doesn’t fit for free. Pretty cool, right?
But my favorite thing about Menguin is that they took what could have been just a profit-making venture and went one step further to make a social impact. In fact, today they’re announcing an exciting partnership with ocean conservation organization Oceana to help grooms not only get married in style, but also save marine animals, including the best-dressed of them all: penguins.

I never thought I’d be writing press releases about penguins, yet here I am 🙂 And I’m happy to report that I’m very excited to work with this hot young company! I think more brands in the wedding industry should aim to do social good themselves and help their clients – brides & grooms – support worthwhile causes. We’re in the industry of making people happy, but often it’s an industry that can be quite wasteful. So let’s figure out better ways to do our part, shall we?
