Wedding Trends and Options

Every wedding is unique. The most important thing is that you love what you see on the big day, and in the pictures you will enjoy for a lifetime.

Timeless looks for men never go out of style - with modern touches in detailing and fit, traditional black tie is always a classic for a formal wedding. Color tuxedos are also very popular, especially for daytime, garden-style, and destination weddings. Today’s favorite color for wedding menswear is grey, including dark and light variations. Shades of blue, such as midnight, slate, and the new royal hue, are also popular, as is tan or khaki for beach weddings.

Some couples choose to coordinate the tie and other accessories with the colors of the bridesmaids’ dresses, while others stick to a monochromatic look for the groomsmen. Often, the groom wears a different shade than the men in the bridal party. Wedding tuxedos today are often tailored with the newer slim (sometimes called “skinny”) style, or you can choose a “classic” (fuller cut) or “modern” (body conscious, but not slim) style.

The bride and groom sometimes choose to forgo tuxedos in favor of finely tailored designer suits, and we offer an extensive selection. Our inventory includes formalwear options and accessories for every man involved in the wedding, from the young ring bearer to the father of the bride.
