    I say without..it will be more versatile for other functions..plus, I’m just not a fan of tails. ๐Ÿ™‚

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚  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 Fiance isn’t getting tails. So I vote no tails ๐Ÿ™‚

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