So otften wedding notes and blogs have pointers for the brides, but today, let's consider the groom and his wedding party.
It is a fact that most men would prefer to dress in casual style clothing most of the time, but , boy, do they look handsome when donning a tuxedo!
While traditional rules are followed as guidelines, there are many options to accommodate personal preference in the area of men's formalwear.
One of the most noticeable is the increase of color as an accent. color is incorporated into the cummmerbunds, ties, pocket squares, to most times coordinate with the bridesmaids dresses.
Remember, medium or darker colors are fine anytime, but are more appropriate during the evening or in the winter months.Tails are proper anytime, but, are most commonly worn by the groom only, rather than the entire wedding party. Light color linen suits are certainly appropriate for a summer wedding, whereas, if there is a beach themed wedding, many grooms will only be in kacky pants and a beach type shirt. To assure that guests come properly attired on your special day, make sure that on the reception card of the invitation ensemble you send the message "Black tie optional or invited"
This offers your guests a guideline as to what dress code is really expected. Those men that own a tux will be glad to have the opportunity to wear it again, and the others will know they must be in a suit, not in jeans.
