Before you can settle for a tuxedo, it is important to understand the type of wedding that you are attending to as well as the different types of wedding tuxedos that are available. It is after this that you can pick the type of coat and the other important accessories.
Normally, if the occasion is a wedding, many people put more focus on the bride’s gown as well as the clothes that are going to be worn by the bridesmaids. Few people realizing that finding the right tuxedo for the groom and his groomsmen can be a rather daunting task. Since the choice for such tuxedos is wide, your work has been made easier. When choosing a wedding tuxedo the rule of thumb is to choose one that matches the body type of the person who is going to wear it.
Fundamentally, a black sack coat, a dark gray sack coat or a gray waistcoat are ideal for a day wedding. This can be coupled with a white pleated or off white standard shirt, a long necktie on top of black business shoes. For a wedding that is going to take place in the evening, it is advisable that you choose a dark tuxedo or a business suit, a white shirt as well as coordinating shoes if the wedding is during the winter. For a summer evening wedding, many professional wedding planners will advise you should go for a navy business suit or a lighter colored shirt. Apart from this, you can opt for a tuxedo with a white shirt, a long necktie and coordinating shoes.
For a daytime formal wedding, it will be a good idea to go for a black or gray morning coat or a gray waistcoat which has striped trousers, a white shirt which is stiffly starched and gray gloves. As usual, black leather shoes are a must have for this occasion. For a formal evening wedding, you could choose to wear a black tailcoat with matching trousers, a white pique waistcoat, a starched white shirt, a white bowtie, standard black leather shoes and if you are bold, you can put on white gloves to complement the look.
Buying a tuxedo can be a costly affair. It makes even less economic sense when you consider the fact that it is something that you are going to wear only once. However, you cannot pass this opportunity to look at your best on your wedding just because you do not have enough money to buy a tuxedo. There are companies which can rent to you tuxedos at very affordable prices for your wedding. These companies usually have a wide range of tuxedos from which you can choose.
Tuxedos of different qualities, colors and sizes are all at your disposal to choose from. The tuxedos from these rental companies have usually been worn by only one or two people before and are therefore not exactly second-hand. They are usually rented per day and it is advisable that you try them out before hiring one.
