Contemporary Wedding Etiquette
Super light weight luxury wool tuxedos are a popular choice for weddings because they are both cooler and more comfortable on the skin. Most wedding planners suggest a fullback vest and tie combination that compliments the bridesmaids’ colours. Either matching colours or neutral colours are appropriate for the groomsmen. The groom should wear a vest that identifies him as the bride’s partner – typically this is a light, neutral coloured vest.
The overall style of the wedding should be reflected in the choice of tuxedos. High-fashion weddings may consider more cutting-edge tuxedo styles. Brides that characterize their weddings as “simple” or “elegant” may prefer exclusive designs by Perry Ellis or Ralph Lauren.
Traditional Formal Wedding Etiquette
Evening: Black Full Dress with matching trousers, wing collar pique shirt, white pique vest and tie, and black patent leather shoes. Ushers should wear white gloves when seating guests but not during the ceremony. This is also known as “White Tie and Tails.”
Daytime: Grey Cutaway, striped trousers, pearl grey vest, white wing collar shirt, ascot tie, and black patent leather shoes.
