     TO vickiburns:  “Ruches” isn’t a word I was familiar with… had to look it up.

    Seems to be a British English term for something that is a cross between an Ascot and a traditional Tie.

     TO sydneybridetobe1991:  a 3 Piece Dark Suit works all day round… midnight to midnight.

    James Bond Tuxedos technically are best for an Evening Wedding, or an affair that is primarily held late in the afternoon (sunset) and centres around upscale things like a Cocktail Hour and Sit-Down Dinner

    Morning Dress is the formal equivalent to the Tuxedo for events that happen earlier than the evening timeframe

    Altho to be honest, at least in North America very few people hold to the prescribed tuxedo timeframe… you’ll see tuxedos here morning, noon, and night-time too.

    PS… Your PROFILE says you are in Sydney… curious which Sydney… the one down under, the one in Canada, or somewhere else?  Ruched ties were something new for me as a Canadian… not sure if they are in use the world over.  So that too would be something to think about… what is popular in your part of the world (easily found… as no doubt with the Men in your Wedding… Groom, Best Man, Groomsmen, etc you’d probably need something that can be easily found / sourced for a “larger group”… especially so if everyone isn’t in the same city etc)

    both have all the important guys wear a bow tie and tie for all the others its kind of like how we let our maids of honor sometimes wear a different color or shade from the rest of the bridesmaids

    Bowties creep me out… I feel they should spin. Or spit water. Just a weird ‘me’ thing. So im opting ties!!

    I LOVE bowties, so I voted for that. Fiance says no on them, though, and votes for regular ties. Bah!

    As an aside, our guys are just wearing tux pants and a matching vest, so…formality of the event doesn’t really matter.

    Re – Tuxes

    In North America most tuxes don’t have tails … only Morning Coats do.

    Tuxes with Tails is considered odd / old fashioned (like a penguin)… tuxes now are very much like a suit, only dressier.

    PHOTO – Typical Black Tuxedo as worn in NA.  This one shown with a Vest & Regular Tie… Bowties, Ascots, or even open collar are options… are are the more traditonal cummerbund (typically worn with a bow tie)… ala James Bond

    And on that note…

    A Bit of Eye-Candy for your viewing pleasure… I agree nothing as sexy as 007 himself (any James Bond works for me)
