A Groom's Guide to Formalwear

The bride isn’t the only one who needs to look stylish on the wedding day. The groom needs to take the time in his wedding planning duties to find the perfect tuxedo to compliment the style of the wedding fashion attire.

Find a reputable formalwear shop in your area to get the ball rolling. You don’t necessarily need to go to a national chain, even if your wedding party doesn’t live in town. Most tuxedo shops will do measurements even if you aren’t renting the tuxedo from their shop.

Look at the latest styles, keeping in mind what the formality and style is for your wedding fashion. Try on tuxedos to see which style suits you best. Send out tuxedo measurement forms to the rest of your wedding party, giving them a deadline to return it to you or the tuxedo shop.

Have your entire wedding party try on their tuxedos as soon as they arrive at the shop. Make sure everything fits correctly, and that all the pieces are there. Count cuff links and button studs if they are included. And don’t forget to try on the shoes.

Make sure all the groomsmen have black socks to wear with the tuxedo. You may want to pack some extra pairs in your wedding day emergency kit, in case someone shows up in white tube socks.
