Does everyone wear a tux to a wedding?

Yes. If you’re a groom or in the wedding party, you’ll definitely need to wear a tuxedo to a wedding that’s designated black tie. If you’re a guest, you should also wear a tuxedo. However, if the dress code is black tie optional, you also have the option of wearing a dark-colored suit in lieu of a full tux.

When should you not wear a tux?

Timing for a tuxedo

What color should the groom’s tie be?

We’ve seen the groom wear a tie in the main wedding color while the groomsmen wear an accent color. Or, for a more traditional look, the groom can wear a neutral color tie (black, white or ivory) while the groomsmen wear a tie that matches the wedding color.

Should every man own a tuxedo?

Every man should own (at least) one tuxedo that gets upgraded every two to three years. The style I recommend now is tailored to the body, and a peak lapel is my personal choice. The only time not to go with a notch lapel is when the peak doesn’t sit well due to height or width of the chest.

Do you wear a white shirt under a tuxedo?
