Finding the ideal formal wear doesn’t have to be scary for the grooms party. In fact, we promise it will be painless. We can make that vow because New York Bride & Groom offers the guys their own tuxedo rental department as well as their own shop attendants to help simplify everything. Our experienced consultants will help everyone assemble their suits and make sure that the correct measurements are taken and the orders are properly placed. Best of all, we stock samples of every suit so you can feel the material and see the true color. There’s no guesswork like with most other salons, where you’re only option is ordering from a catalog or an online gallery.
The following tips from The Knot are a great starting point when it’s time to dress the guys:
His suit or tux should fit the formality
At the most basic level, his attire should be appropriate for your venue and fit with the overall vibe of the wedding. If your wedding is in the daytime or outdoors, it can be a bit more casual (think: lighter-colored suits made of fabrics like seersucker or khaki). If it’s an evening affair in a ballroom or swanky hotel, go with either a dark, well-tailored suit or for black-tie attire (a tux). Need to step it up one more notch? Suited for an extra-luxe venue, white-tie is the ultimate in formalwear. This means a black tailcoat, white shirt and white bow tie.
His fit should be perfect
Even the most expensive tux on the rack will look and feel awful if it doesn’t fit right. He should be able to move around easily — have him do lots of twists, turns and arm raises to make sure there’s plenty of mobility. Regardless of whether he’s renting or buying, most shops will custom tailor the purchase. Here are a few basic tailoring rules:
- The jacket sleeve hem should fall at the wristbone with about one-fourth to one half inch of the shirt cuff showing below.
- The bottom hem of the jacket should cover the butt and the vent shouldn’t pull open. If it does, that means it’s too tight.
- The collar should lie flat on the back and sides of the neck without any gaps or bulges.
- Pants should fit comfortably when standing and sitting and break across the top of the shoes so that they cover the top one-third.
- A bow tie should fit snugly around the collar. See more tips at The Knot

Tuxedo Matching 101
While the groom should clearly have some autonomy over his suit choice, it’s important that he choose a tuxedo that works with the rest of the wedding party’s look (particularly the bride, of course) and fits the formality of the ceremony. Check out the following article for suggestions to help the groom find a complementary tux:
Is the bride’s dress ivory, or is it white?
Although the grooms may not know exactly what they are looking for when they walk into Street Tuxedo (Nashville, TN), Mark says the brides who accompany them usually have a pretty good idea themselves! Whether the groom is going for a traditional look or a trendier adaptation, one of the first questions Mark will ask is whether the bride’s gown is ivory or white. This helps determine what color shirts the men in the wedding party will wear.
What color are the bridesmaids wearing?
Next, it is important to find out what color the bridesmaids are wearing in order to match or complement the vests and ties the men decide on. While many men choose to wear the regular neck ties with their formal wear, Mark has noticed bow ties becoming increasingly popular with grooms as well. It all depends on the level of formality of the event and individual tastes of the couples. Continue reading at The Pink Bride
