Of course, you have now decided if you want a morning, afternoon or evening wedding
Of course, you have now decided if you want a morning, afternoon or evening wedding. This will have an impact on your decision for style and color of tuxedos. Traditionally, there are the same amount in the bridal party as there are groomsmen. This includes the maid of honor and best man. Of course, there are always exceptions and then adjustments can to be made accordingly. Once you have decided on the amount of each, it’s now time to decide if the tuxedos need to match the bridesmaids’ dresses. They should compliment each other but need not match completely in color. It’s often not possible to match exactly the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses and the color of the vest or tie of the groomsmen.
In a traditional wedding, the groom and the best man tend to wear similar wedding gear
In a traditional wedding, the groom and the best man tend to wear similar wedding gear. Particularly the groom and the best man should wear a color that stands out so their positions are obvious to the guests. This distinction can be made by color or style. For instance, more groomsmen are wearing a long tie and a vest. These could match each bridesmaid dress. As an example, the groom would be wearing one color so that he stands out as the guest of honor. The best man could be wearing another color and matching that of the dress of the maid of honor. And yet another color could be worn by the rest of the groomsmen to match the bridesmaids’ dresses. In all these ways, the tuxes would accent the bridesmaids’ dresses and make the wedding party look like a perfect picture.
If you choose to have all the groomsmen…
If you choose to have all the groomsmen, including the best man, in the same color tie and vest, then the style could be different. Again, this would make it apparent which is the best man.
The styles for tuxedos could be formal, ultra formal or semi formal. In these categories, there are individual styles which would then compliment the style of the bridesmaid dresses. After you decide what tuxedos compliment the bridal party, then focus on comfort. Comfort is the key along with complimenting the entire wedding party.
