I’d go with the vest.  I feel like cumberbuns are out of “style”.

They’re correct. If the button jewelery or the pleating on the tuxedo shirt don’t go all the way down to the waist, you will need wither a cummerbund or a vest.

I urge you, though, to please not go with a cummerbund. It might be fine for a prom or a fancy dinner event, but not for your own wedding.

I know it will be August and hot, but he’ll probably take off the jacket once he gets to the reception anyway. At least let him look good for the ceremony.

When I think cumberbuns I think of the 80’s.  Please have him wear the vest!

“Proper” black tie attire dictates a waist covering, whether a waistcoat/vest, or a cummerbund. While there are people who think that cummerbunds look like they are old fashioned, there are some people (like me) who see guys with no cummerbund or vest and think something is missing.

We just got married and my Fiance wore a tux with a vest. After pictures and the ceremony he took of the jacket and he was fine.
