A tuxedo get’s one or the other.  Either is appropriate.  Some think the cummerbund is out of style, but they’re wrong.  A black cummerbund that is virtually invisible when wearing a jacket is always correct with a tux.  If you are doing a color, I would steer clear of the cummerbund because it would cease to be invisible and start to look like show-choir. Even black cummerbunds look awkward to me when fellas are not wearing their dinner jackets.  So if they are the sort that will take off their jackets as soon as they are done eating, then I would have another reason to avoid cummerbunds.

Vests!! Cummerbunds seem too ‘prom’ to me.

i had the groomsmen in black vests/ties – and the dads in red cumberbuns and bowties that way they would stand out too 🙂

Personally, I prefer no cumberbund or vest. I think they both look too dated/prom. Especially if they’re in a color. And even more so if that color is shiny.

I prefer vests. Always have. It just adds more than a cummberband does.

Vests!  Our guys wore vests.  The groomsmen wore a white shirt, green vest, green tie.  Hubby wore a white shirt, green vest, and black tie, (his idea, ’cause he wanted to stand out).  Ushers wore green vest and tie, but black shirt.  And the dads wore white shirts with silver vests and ties.

Vest.  Cummerbunds remind me of junior high choir.

Neither. It’s actually more classic that way. Cumberbunds are kind of dated looking and vests look too prom-y for my taste.
