Have you asked your FI what he likes? We’re doing this two-button grey tux by Calvin Klein from Men’s Wearhouse because our colors are purple and grey. Also, (weather permitting) our ceremony will be outdoors, so we wanted something a little lighter. We’re accessorizing with a purple vest and bow tie for the groomsmen and a black vest and bow tie for the groom. We’re not planning on doing pocket square at this point:

We went with the Vera Wang, but in grey. It’s very popular – FBIL is getting married three months after us and they’re wearing the same Tux. I’ve seen many Bees also have it in both black and grey. When I posted a poll, the Vera Wang got the most votes.

This is our look…ties will be different colors but otherwise the same

I’m getting married in the fall and my fiance is doing a dark chocolate tux.  It’s very classy and different.  Paired with a lighter spring color, that might look nice!

First, what does the groom think?  He should be the one deciding what he wears; he’s a grown man.

This site should answer just about any questions either of you have, especially f you want to do black & white:

Your question about collars is, I believe, about lapels.  Peak lapels are traditional on formal jackets.  Shawl collars are also traditional.  Notches didn’t appear until the 60’s, and are really for suits and sport coats.

One button is traditional; two button is for suits.

Pocket squares are not cheesy, unless you do them in a cheesy way.  Cheesy ways include matching pocket square/tie sets, and, generally being te same colour as the tie.  A pocket square should pick up the colour of something else in the outfit, but not the tie.  It’s pretty safe to have them pick up the shirt colour – or to just use white for everything if you’re nt confident.  If you’re doing Tuxedos, a hand-rolled white linen pocket square is very sharp.  I would do it in either a straight across fold, or single peak – keep it simple.  I got those for my whole party, and the dads, for $10/each from an etsy seller.  I can send you her info if you want.
