  • Wedding: September 2013

We went through Jos A. Bank.  They have every color imaginable!!

Groom: Light gray tux, ivory vest and tie

Groomsmen: Dark gray tux, dark purple vest and tie

Dads: Dark Gray tux, silver vest and tie

You can do this!! Deep breaths!!  Just go to a rental place and they can show you the color options that go best with BM dresses. 🙂

@MrsDeLovely:  Show that photo to the tux rental people, they can help you replicate the look 🙂 Typically, vests are worn with tuxedos. Fathers often wear the same style as the guys. The tux your FI picked is very classic; go with it! Then just have the groomsmen wear black ties or a colored tie to coordinate with your accent colors.

My FI, groomsmen, and dad are all wearing a black tux from Men’s Wearhouse Vera Wang collection. The stock photo shows with a bow tie but they are wearing black ties. They are wearing vests and all matching except FI will have a pocket square

My FI is wearing this same exact tuxedo below, Armani peak lapel. We are having a formal black-tie preferred evening wedding. If your wedding is in the evening and black tie, peak lapel is the only way to go and black bow tie. If it’s semi-formal and evening, then go for a notch lapel and a black long skinny tie (if you’re looking a little more Hollywood) or bow tie (if you still want to retain a more traditional feel). Before 6pm, they shouldn’t be in tuxes at all. A notch lapel suit with a colored tie like the guy is wearing in your photo is not a tuxedo btw, it’s just a dressed up business suit and not appropriate for a black tie “formal” wedding.

Mine are wearing dark gray tux’s, matching vests & burnt orange ties from Men’s Warehouse.  Dad went rogue and decided it wasn’t “traditional” enough. At this point I don’t even care as long as he shows up in a tux of some sort.

@MrsDeLovely:  Because they name anything tuxedos nowadays. A tuxedo is a step up from a smoking jacket and a step below from tails, hence traditionalists stating that a true tuxedo has either a shawl or peak lapel. In order to make tuxedos more appealing to the masses, designers introduced the notch lapel, which is derived from the business suit. And then they added colors to appeal to an increased demographic of boys attending prom. If you aren’t having a black tie wedding, then go for a black long tie with a notch lapel, it looks nice and sleek and is often done in Hollywood. I would advise against colored ties because they turn a tux into just a party suit, but it’s your wedding 🙂
