How You Can Look Great in Your Tux
Ask a few people and they would tell you what they believe without batting their eyelashes – weddings are normally focused on the glowing beauty of the bride. Apparently, all eyes are trained on the beautiful bride, as if she is the lone star of the show. Now the question is what does this say about the groom? Obviously, this shouldn’t be the case. The groom is much a part of the wedding ceremony as the bride is; both should share equal billing on their wedding day, so to speak.
Perhaps one of the reasons why men are rarely given the second look even on their wedding day is the way they carry themselves. Indeed, there are men who are confident enough to carry a tuxedo in all its splendid glory while there are those who slouch and look unkempt.
It could be that the reason why some men look disheveled in their wedding tuxedo is because they have no idea how to choose one properly. Truth be told, picking out a tuxedo for that very special day in your life seems like a daunting task. However, it doesn’t have to be difficult or overwhelming. Asking yourself a few questions before you head out to a Montclair tuxedo rental shop could actually help you find the right tuxedo, one that you would actually look good in. For instance, ask yourself what style you want (do you really want to wear a tux or would a suit suffice), if you’d settle for a rented tux or purchase one, and what color you want.
Most men feel awkward wearing a tuxedo because they think it’s too formal. Hence, if you still haven’t decided what to wear, why don’t you ask your fiancée how formal the wedding is going to be. Strictly formal weddings would require that you and your groomsmen wear tuxedos. The location of the wedding should also be taken into consideration. After all, there are venues where a tuxedo seems to be the most appropriate thing to wear.
Next, you need to decide on the most appropriate style. This is one of the most important ways to determine whether you would look good in your tuxedo or not. You actually have several choices in this regard. If the wedding is semiformal, wearing a dark tuxedo with a bow tie and a vest or cummerbund. A crisp white or off-white shirt should be paired with the tux. Now if the wedding is formal, a black tuxedo capped off with a white shirt always does the trick. You can accessorize the ensemble with a bow tie or necktie, a pocket square, and a vest. It wouldn’t hurt to consider tailcoats and a cummerbund to complete the look.
One thing you need to keep in mind when considering the color of your clothes is your bride’s opinion. As much as possible, you need to make sure that the shirt, vest, or tie would match the color of your bride’s wedding dress. Alternatively, you could use your wedding colors for your cummerbund, pocket square, or bow tie.
By sticking close to your wedding colors and keeping your bride-to-be’s opinions close to mind, you can be sure that you would look good in your wedding tuxedo.
