OK so here is the skinny… We are getting married in Las Vegas!! I wanna kinda have fun with it and show our fun or silly side… I have a 2 in 1 dress so it will be above the knees short after the ceremony, Worn with light rose Crystal shoes… Lots of fun and a flash or me!! But how to do this for him???? My Fiance would like to wear dress shoes… I am thinking socks and Sunglasses would be a few areas to personalize… I cant talk him into a top hat LOL already tried that one. Oh well no hats… Here is what he will be wearing and I am open to ideas… Get funky with it!!
Steel Gray Tux, Silver vest (lighter in person), with a light pink tie!

I think that veering away from the classic black tux with vest and that sort of thing, can help begin to set one off as slightly more unique than the average groom’s outfit. In my wedding, I’m getting a custom tailored very light grey suit with no vest and a skinnier tie. I’d like to find some sky blue argyle socks to match my tie and pocket square, but other than that, I’m expecting it to be a basically traditional suit because that’s what makes me feel the best and most comfortable and what I feel will be most fitting for my wedding.
I know that some people like to rock some sunglasses or fun sneakers at their weddings to show off a bit of their personality and to show that they aren’t quite as “stuffy” as a traditional suit/tux might imply, but I feel like a suit or tux is tradition because it works. And you can show plenty of individuality by working within the system and still look very classy. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with sunglasses and sneakers if that’s what you like, but I’m the kind of person who thinks that all men can look good with the right suit. There’s plenty of room for personalization within the suit itself in what sort of fir you’re looking for, what type and pattern of fabric you want, color of the suit, not to mention ties, pocket squares, vests, etc. There’s a world of possibilities out there.
Also, I think our ceremony, reception, decorations, and everything else will help reflect who we are and our uniqueness more than what we wear to the wedding. For instance we’re handmaking a lot of items with a nature theme and having our reception in a natural science museum. We’re picking a lot of the music for our DJ to play. We’re going to try to write the ceremony ourselves. Things like this will help show who we are a lot more than what we are wearing, though we both are very pleased with the outfits that we’ve picked out and how they suit us.
Anyway, I hope this helps and I do like the look of what you’ve picked so far. The colors seem to work well together and it looks great. The most important thing is just making sure he’s comfortable and happy with what he’s wearing. It’s his big day too.
