Mr Corn, his dad, his brother, my nephew and my dad all wore the same, non-vested tux.  All but my dad and nephew’s were purchased for Mr Corn’s brother’s wedding which was 9 months prior to ours.

Good luck!

Thanks, Rebecca.  Of course, I am now realizing that ktdid23 may have meant neckties without vests as opposed to bow ties.  If that is the case, I actually am not sure it would work.  You would have to find a tux jacket that would be cut in a way that it would hold the tie in place and keep it from flapping around.

We are doing tuxs without vests and with neckties, but I don’t have pictures—the wedding isn’t until July. But, my FH tried it on in the tux shop and it looks great. Our groomsmen will wear ties to match the bridesmaids’ dresses.

I had the groom and Best Man in a tuxedo with ties…you can check out the pictures here…

In my opinion, the only thing that makes a tuxedo different from a suit is the the lapel and the stripe going down the pants…but you’re not really going to notice it much in pictures…the other GMs were wearing a plain black suit….but I don’t think you can tell the difference in the pictures.

Mr Tiramisu and his groomsmen are planning to go vest-less too.  According to FFIL, it’s a-ok as long as you wear suspenders!  Not sure about this, but suspenders are fun so we’re going with it 🙂

I found his tie at Men’s Wearhouse…it was a bit on the pricey side though at $50….but I loved it so I just had to get it…but you may want to consider discount stores like TJMaxx, Filene’s Basement, and Century 21 for ties as if you have enough time to search, you just might get lucky!
