I don’t think they’re only appropriate for funerals at all!  I just always thought they were a little less formal than a tux.

I say wear them anyway. People will always have objections and little tidbits to say. I don’t think theres anything wrong with them, they’re justa a less formal version of a tux 🙂

Good Luck

I never would have even thought of that! I think black suits are perfectly fine!

My FI and his guys will all be wearing black tuxes. I don’t think that black tuxes would be something that is worn at a funeral. I agree with the other posters. Go with what you want, and forget about what other people are saying about it. You know your vision; they don’t.

We also had a daytime garden wedding & went with black tuxes with a tie in one of our wedding colors.  Black suits/tuxes are always a classic!

we’re having our groomsmen wear black suits too, partially because they already own black suits, and if they don’t, they’ll be buying something totally rewearable. totally not just for funerals! men wear black suits alllll the time for work or other fancy occasions

We picked out the guys tuxes last weekend and they’re black, so I say go for it. Our wedding is pretty light in color and summery too.

I never heard the “no black to a wedding” thing until I saw it on this site. I’ve always worn black cocktail dresses to weddings.
