You have spent months
shopping for your perfect gown, veil, jewelry, shoes and everything you need to look amazing on your wedding day. But what about the Groom? Although it may take only a fraction of the time to choose the men's attire, having the Groom looking good on his big day is equally important.
Here is an easy step by step guide from Black Tie Tuxedo by Michelle's
on choosing the perfect ensemble for your wedding party:
Choose your color:
Will it be a traditional black tuxedo, or something else? Choosing the color for the men's attire can depend on the style of the wedding, the theme, the setting, or even the time of year.
Color options include black, multiple shades of grey, navy blue, brown and tan.
Black-Classic, can be worn any time of year, many styles to choose from.
Grey-Variety of color options to match wedding party, increasing more stylish, lighter weight options for Summer weddings.
Navy-Limited styles, less formal, compliments many colors.
Brown-Limited to single style, good for Fall weddings.
Tan-Limited styles, lightweight fabrics for destination or outdoor weddings.
Choose your style:
One you have selected your color there are still a variety of options to decide on. For example, black tuxedos range from traditional satin stripped pants and lapels to ultra modern slim cuts and non-traditional fabrics. Wedding suits are similar to tuxedos and often hard to distinguish but have less details, such as covered buttons and satin trim.
The fundamental differences you will find when comparing styles are the shape and cut of the lapels, and satin versus no satin trim.
Choose your accessories:
A complete tuxedo accessory package from Black Tie Tuxedo by Michelle's includes a shirt, vest, tie, and shoes.
