For the Groom: Tuxedo, Suit or Other?


Fewer and fewer engaged couples are renting tuxedos for their weddings, according to eWedNews.com. Whether because of economics or style preferences or cultural traditions more grooms are standing at the altar in suits or other attire. What do you think? What will your groom wear? Do you prefer the look of a tuxedo or something else? If you were recently married, what did your groom wear?

The last 4 or 5 brides that I designed dresses for, the grooms have been equally creative. They are NOT renting but BUYING and/or having a suit custom made. Although the tuxedo is still a chic and elegant option, some grooms want to have more personality and flavor incorporated into the wedding.

That's a good point, Cassandra. Grooms probably want to be as creative as brides do when it comes to their wedding day clothing!

So . . . if the groom designs a "suit for his Day" and it's looking like a Tux - does it detract from the Tux biz?

To find a tuxedo of your dreams, one that is going to fit just right, that is going to feel good while you are wearing it.

If a woman is wearing a "wedding dress" I feel that the man should wear a tuxedo. There are many options to tuxedos these days other than the basic black to allow the groom to show his creative side and still look as elegantly dressed as possible. A suit, although it can look very nice is not the best dressed a man can get the way a tuxedo is. I recommend you visit the following website to see all the options available to grooms for tuxedos. www.jeanyvescatalog.com

Call me old fashioned, but it seems like wedding attire is about being out of the ordinary. A wedding dress is not every-day, nor is a tux. Some men wear suits every day. I will always be romanced by the formal tuxedo on the wedding day.

suits aren't a best choice when compared with mens tuxedos.

As the guests arrive, they get a clothespin clamped to their clothing. They are instructed not to say a certain word, such as 'bride' or 'wedding', and if they do, the person who catches them, gets their clothespin. The one wearing the most clothespins at the end of the party wins a prize.

Create an original list of 15-25 wedding items then photocopy the sheet for your guests. From that list, choose 10-15 wedding items that would be good to use for words scrambles, and write them on a piece of paper. (For example wedding gown - could be scrambled to read dinwged nowg.) Give the guests the sheet, and allow them 5 or 10 minutes to unscramble the words. Whoever unscrambles the most is the winner.
