If he’s wearing a long tie you don’t even need studs, nobody will see them. In my opinion (after working in the tux industry for a few years) it’s personal preference. Nobody is going to know the difference except you and your Fiance. If you are getting him nice monogrammed cufflinks you might want to get the studs to match.

@PinkMagnolia: Good black studs are made with onyx.  The inexpensives ones are made with enamel/plastic.  That’s one reason why some are $100+ and some are $25. In person, the onyx studs look and feel different than the enamel if you were to hold them side by side. But nobody at a wedding will notice a difference unless they inspect them.  They can get more pricey as you start adding design and other metals/stones to the ring around the onyx/enamel. Cheap ones will use some sort of steel on the outside of the black stone/enamel. When they use gold it obviously gets more expensive. In My Humble Opinion, if you’re going to go basic with the studs, I’d go low-moderately priced, and save budget room for stuff that is more noticeable like shoes and the bowtie.

Do the cufflinks and studs have to match? Black-tie traditionalists will tell you they should match closely.  But as with all things clothing, you can do whatever the heck you wanna do.
