Personal Touch 

Many grooms want to stand apart from the other members in the bridal party, at least in some small way.  There are many ways to achieve this goal, including wearing a tuxedo or jacket in a different color, wearing a different-colored vest, choosing  slightly different style or using an accessory such as a pocket square or boutonniere.

Timing of Wedding Tuxedo Selection

Many wedding planners recommend getting fitted for the desired tuxedo style three to five months before the wedding.


The star of most tuxedos is the jacket. There are several different styles from which to choose, including jackets with a tailcoat and single-breasted jackets.  There may be between one to four buttons on the jacket. Jackets also come with different lapels, including peak lapels, shawl lapels and notch lapels.  Different styles are better suited for different body types.

Shirts and Ties

The tuxedo shirt should complement the bride or other groom’s choice.  For grooms who want to wear a long tie, a lay down collar is usually recommended. Wing tip collars are usually better suited for bowties.

Other Accessories

Grooms may also consider a number of other accessory options, including vests, cummerbunds, cuff links and shoes.

Slim Fit Tuxedo Shirts are the preferred choice today eliminating the traditional Wing Tip version of yesteryear.  Pre-made Bowties with matching Pocket Squares are the latest trend.
