Colorful Tuxedos!

Some people think that the bridesmaids get all the fun with using the color scheme that the couple selected. Not true! There are so many different color tuxedos that look classy and would make the wedding much more lively.

For example, here is a classy red tuxedo that would look great on any groomsman:

And, imagine how nice it would look if it matches with the bridesmaids dresses. Here’s an example of the bridesmaids dresses and the tuxes matching in their suave blue color:

Tuxedos – Renting or Buying or Using Your Own

As a bridesmaid, I wasn’t worried about what the groomsmen did.  But I’ve discovered that there are decisions involved.  And here they are!

  • Pick a tux that you want all groomsmen to have and ask them to rent that particular one.  Or, The Wedding Bee talks about a website that allows you to BUY tuxedos at a price of 3 for the price of 1 — meaning that it might be more economical to buy the same tux.
  • If your groomsmen already own tuxes, have them wear their own.  If they don’t, you can just let them handle finding one that suits them. (No pun intended) Obviously if you do this, the tuxedos wont match the bridesmaids dresses.
  • Alternatively, you can have the groomsmen that own tuxes wear theirs, but ask them to wear a certain tie or bowtie or vest or cumerbund. And if you’re the groom, you don’t have to match!
  • If you are picking something trendy (And it turns out that there is a new trend in tuxedos at weddings – chocolate brown!) then it makes the most sense to have everyone rent.

All this comes down to how much you want everyone to match — the groomsmen matching each other and matching the bridesmaids — or not!

What are you going to do with your tuxes?
