Hello – this is my first post! There are so many opinions on the web, that I thought this would be the best forum to get some thoughts from you ladies. I have been a stalker for months now….
I have purchased my gown for the wedding….Maggie Sottero Isadora Ann….and I love it!! I was dead set on tea lenth, and it is perfect. Now that the gown is purchased, we are on the hunt for him….and therein lies the problem.
You see, while I fell in love with tea length, he really likes the Vera Wang Black tuxedo in the charcoal. We had originally thought a 3 piece grey suits to match the less formal gown, but after seeing the Vera in our trip to look at suits, I personally was seduced by the idea of him in this grey tuxedo.
Here is my dress:
And here is the tux:
Do you ladies think a tux is too formal for a tea length gown? Or would it be okay since it would be in grey? Our wedding is going to be an evening wedding in a local small art gallery…..a mix of formal and informal (I just couldn’t make up my mind to go fully one way or the other!). Thoughts on this? Thank you!

I think it’ll look great! The grey helps to make it less formal, but I also think that besides some super old-school folks no one would even consider if your FH’s attire matched the formality of your dress. As long as you both look great, you will look great together!

@AllieBee12: Agreed- the grey makes it look a little less formal. I think you guys will look great together! PS I love your dress!

@AllieBee12: +1. Agree that the grey brings the formality down a notch.
OP, I think it’s fantastic that you two are picking out your own outfits and that they’ll look great together!

I think in grey it will look geat. Sort of the same way that your dress is very formal, but short, the tux is very formal, but in grey. I love it!
