Can’t I Just Wear My Favorite Suit?
Having a nice suit hanging in your closet is great, but don’t pull it our for your wedding. If you are a guest at a wedding, wear it with pride and feel dapper and dressed up. Many men on the guest list will be wearing their best suits as well. But if you’re the groom — the man who will be at the center of attention — you should look special.
Besides, you can wear that same suit to work and feel all dapper and dressed up any other day of the year. Wear something that sets yourself and this day apart from the rest.
The point of dressing up for your wedding isn’t simply to look your best. That’s a big part of it, but it’s also to commemorate your marriage in an ensemble that’s designed for that very purpose. This is a special day that deserves a special dress code. A tuxedo says “I have come to share this moment with you. I would look out of place anywhere but here. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be.” Via My Tuxedo Catalog

Heather Grey Aspen
For a polished look, the Heather Grey Aspen tuxedo is a stylish choice. Tailored in 100% worsted wool with a slim fit styling, the Heather Grey Aspen’s contemporary notched lapels edged in satin add a touch of luxury to this fashion-forward style. Its light grey color makes it an inspired choice for outdoor weddings.
If you want to go formal you need a bow tie. It’s really going to be your best look anyhow.
The thinning power of vertical lines not withstanding, a bow tie is going to emphasize your manly physique as a whole. As mentioned by The Black Tie Guy in a recent blog post, one of the strongest elements of formal tradition is the starkly contrasted white “V” of the shirt against the black buttoned jacket. The wider top of the “V” accentuates and broadens the shoulders, while the narrow bottom creates the illusion of a thinner waist. The bow tie is integral in this illusion, as it draws attention to the wearer’s face. A long tie, however, dissects the formal “V” into smaller and more obscure sections that just don’t have the same effect. Long ties also direct attention away from the face and towards the naval.
Also, long ties are more common when wearing a suit. The saying goes, “If you wear your tuxedo like a suit, it will look like a suit.” As discussed above, you want your wedding tuxedo to look like one; different from a suit you’d wear any other day at the office. From My Tuxedo Catalog
Subtle Tuxedo Shades
Sometimes, traditional black or white doesn’t cut it when it comes to the tuxedo. Feel free enough to try on other alternatives including navy or the luxurious chocolate shade seen below. Just as a woman’s skin tone can either glow or diminish with specific fabric shades, so can a man’s. Look for shades that enhance your coloring and make you look your best.
