my FI plans to wear a tux for our wedding in September. He’s performed in lots of choires, so he wants to wear tails (what he’s used to). However, I think he should get one without tails because he can wear it to more functions than one with tails. It would be awkward if he in the future arrived as a guest at a wedding as was better dressed than the groom. That’s how I see it.
What do you think? Tails – pros and cons?

I say without..it will be more versatile for other functions..plus, I’m just not a fan of tails. 🙂

I think both look great. If he wants the one with tails and you don’t mind the look I say go for it. It’s his special day like yours so if he wants the looks I say why not right. 🙂 My guy bought his tux and in our circle he probably won’t need to wear to another wedding in quite sometime but I figured I bought a one time dress and he could buy a one time tux. Plus it looks so much better than the rented one.

Are you having an evening wedding? Tails on a tux indicates a “white tie” event (according to traditionalists, that is). If you are having a formal, evening wedding – I say go for it! If not, he might want to reconsider as he may look overdressed.

I wouldn’t say I dislike tails…because there are a few times I have seen them on a groom and think that it looks nice…but it usually goes with the theme of the wedding (english wedding in a large church, traditional wedding etc etc) I agree with you as well, about the function of the tux after the wedding. My FI isn’t getting tails. So I vote no tails 🙂

If tails fit into your overall wedding vision then I think its ok for him to wear them since its what he wants.
