If you’re going with correct etiquette, tuxedos should not be worn before 6pm.  In my opinion, way too formal for an afternoon outdoor ceremony.

Can’t say I’ve ever seen a tuxedo in navy!

I think is fine, if your dress code is formal or black tie xo

If he likes it and you like it, go for it! We are having an outdoor ceremony at 5pm and my Fiance is wearing a black tuxedo. Etiquette be damned, it’s what he’s always dreamed of wearing at his wedding and he will look super handsome, like James Bond haha!
