Boutonnieres for grooms Tuxedo Shirt Options for the grooms wedding tuxedo Tuxedo shirt options for the groom Bowties, long ties and ascots are all different options for the groom groom tuxedo jackets and lapel options for a groom-to-be Groom wedding information regarding tuxedo jacket and lapel options Cummerbund or vest? groom tuxedo pants groom tuxedo pants Grooms Dress shoes Groom wedding attire information Should the groom have Cufflinks or barrel cuffs? Groom wedding information regarding wedding attire Cufflinks Cummerbund groom cufflinks The groom may feel like a prop compared to his lovely bride, but he (and his groomsmen) has still got to dress the part. And while brides have it easy because they know from the start that their wedding dress will cost a fortune and be impossible to find, it's not easy for the groom to navigate cummerbunds, bowties, ascots, morning coats and all the other foreign words associated with wedding attire for men. So let's get into it.

What the groom and groomsmen wear to the wedding depends entirely on the occasion itself and what the bride wants the groom to wear. The good news is that the bride has been visualizing her wedding for a long time, be it an ultra-formal, ultra-traditional white tie event, a morning wedding or a beach wedding. Each of these types of weddings require different wedding wear for the groom and groomsmen. Our aim is to show you that not every wedding needs to be black tie, and that even if you're doing something very traditional, there's room for a bit of creativity within the bounds of that slightly itchy, chemically-treated, rental tuxedo you're contemplating.

Of course, we begin with one the groom's duties: get his groomsmen suited up for the wedding. It's a vastly more important task than figuring out the differences between a long tie, bow tie or ascot. Why? Because it's the groom who will have to deal with "Paul", his groomsman, who's habitually late for events, forgetful, and likely to forget to bring his rented bow tie. Sound familiar? The groom will be able to ease some his bride's anxieties by learning a bit about the ins and outs of wedding attire.

Most men in NYC wear the over the calf sheer nylon formal dress socks when in black tie. Where can I get them?

When choosing a suit, the groom should be realistic in the estimation of the proportions of his figure. Not tall grooms should forget about elongated jackets, which will reduce the height visually . The classic three-piece suit will be the best option for men of any height and shape.

Great article. I am having a formal lunch reception in Spring as my wedding. I would like to be in a tux but I read a number of sites suggesting a tux is not appropriate for day time wedding. Is that correct? How un-conventional would be be if I decided to go with the tux anyway? Thanks!

Your Comments May the groom's father wear the same color vest as the groomsmen?

WHAT ARE YOU FORGETTING? You've got the tux now for the finishing touch. There is nothing worse than a pale faced groom and a tanned bride(yes she will most likely have bronzed with a tanner and makeup for the big day). Your best option is Aqua Tan, it's natural, clear, smells great and goes on like a mist. And it looks oh so natural. Voted Best Man Tan. Great for the whole wedding party. (Because those pictures are expensive!) www.aquatan.tv

Do the groomsmen's suits match the goom exactly? EG -- same style, maybe different color tie or accents? thoughts?

Jen, try Macy's, Penny's or even Marshall's. Stephen, I'm not sure if they have suits in their line up but Men's Wearhouse does rentals. They may be able to accomodate. I'm pretty sure most tux rental places have a black suit as an option but not as likely other colors or patterns. I get asked a lot if I rent tuxedos and the answer is I do not. I only sell tuxes and suits. Congratulations! Jeff Collins Professional Haberdasher 206.399.9453 Weddings@MyHaberdasher.com www.MyHaberdasher.com

Where do you find these Tommy Bahama look shirts for $50?
Mon, Jan.28th 2008
If we are not planning on tuxedos for the groomsmen are there places that rent suits for a little more laid back feel
