Tuxedos: How to Pick the Best Colors

Obviously, there’s so much emphasis on helping ladies find the perfect wedding dress, but it’s just as important to help the guys find the best colors for tuxedos! We know there are a lot of options out there to choose from, so if you’re feeling overwhelmed, we’re here to help today with a little guidance!

 

 

KEEP WEDDING VENUE AND THEME IN MIND

 

There are so many shades of gray, blue, and everywhere darker and in between when it comes to a tuxedo for your wedding. If you’re struggling to figure out what to go for, think about your wedding venue and what the overall theme of the wedding is. 

 

Suits and fabrics can be influenced by the location. For example, a beach wedding may require lighter colors. Blue and gray tuxedos/suits are popular choices. For an indoor wedding at a church or other indoor venue, navy or black = would be appropriate.

 

 

 

Also important is the theme and style! The black tuxedo is the perfect choice if you are going to a black-tie affair. You may be better off wearing a fun, casual suit if you're having a backyard wedding. It is also important to know about the style of the bride's dress, so when in doubt, ask her.

 

COLOR COORDINATE ACCESSORIES

A man's style and self-confidence can be enhanced by having the right accessories. Tie, suspenders, pocket squares, and cufflinks are among the accessories available! What’s great about including these accessories is that they can add a pop of color to your wedding day look that ties in with your wedding color palette. 

 

Would a necktie or bow tie be appropriate for the look? Black bow ties go well with tuxedos. However, if you choose a colored tie, make sure that it matches the wedding theme or flowers. Don't be bound by tradition. When attending a more casual wedding like one in a backyard or on a farm, not wearing a tie is fine!
