Tuxedo Formal Wear Etiquette

Aug 17, 2007
There are respected traditions to follow in the selection of your tuxedo formal wear. Your individual choices should be based on the time of your ceremony, the season, and the level of formality.

This look creates the most formal wedding you can plan. It centers on the Black Full Dress Tailcoat with a white vest and tie for the groom and his wedding party (fathers included). At your option, the guests can be outfitted in a similar full dress look or a slightly less formal tuxedo. Gloves, top hats, and canes are often used.

The groom can choose from a black tuxedo year-round or a white dinner jacket for warmer weather. Both can utilize complimentary accessories. The men in the wedding party dress the same as the groom, perhaps with different accessories or a boutonniere. "Black Tie Invited" is recommended for the guests.

This look utilizes the "morning suit" and is recommended for weddings before 4 p.m. The groom is dressed in the cutaway coat with stripped pants, a grey vest, striped ascot or a 4-in-hand tie. The attendants and the fathers are outfitted the same, or they may choose the matching stroller coat with possible variations in the tie and shirt.

With a ceremony before 4 p.m., the groom chooses a grey stroller with striped pants, pearl vest, 4-in-hand tie with a white lay down collar shirt. The ushers and the fathers are dressed identical to the groom with a different boutonniere.

The Contemporary trends allow tuxedos to be selected with modern interpretations of the formal dress code. This category's guidelines are relaxed with freedom of choice.

With this look, grooms can choose from a black, white, grey or colored tailcoat and matching accessories, or formal white. The ushers' style will be similar, with the most formal look sporting identical tailcoats. Vests and ties can be used to coordinate with the bridesmaids' dresses. Fathers can be outfitted identically to the ushers or in matching tuxedos. An added plus, "Black Tie Invited" is recommended for the guests.

This look is the proper choice when you want to express your personal preferences. Grooms can choose from a tailcoat, tuxedo, dinner jacket or any of the new high fashion coat styles. Any color is acceptable, with light colors popular in the summer. New fashion shirts, vests and shoes can help you choose your individual style. The wedding party can be dressed similar to the groom, but if the groom chooses tails to stand out the ushers may wear similar color tuxedos. Fathers can choose coordinating tuxedos, and the guests are invited to dress "Black Tie".

This features a traditional daytime look with a modern twist. The groom dresses in an updated cutaway with pleated, striped or matching pants. The ushers dress in matching stroller coats, which really sets the groom apart. Fathers have a choice of either style.

This is the most popular style for today's weddings. You set the style! The groom's choices include ALL types of formalwear in any color. Ushers can match the groom or utilize tail and tuxedo combinations. Colored accessories compliment the bridesmaids' dresses, while the fathers choose coordinating formalwear. Guests are welcome to wear black tuxedos with fashion accessories.
