Ever wondered what you’d wear for your wedding between a Tuxedo or Suit? Tuxedos and suits have different functions. While a suit is more of a conservative affair, and mostly worn at work during the day, a tuxedo is more for semi-formal events.
The Most Ideal For A Wedding: Tuxedo or Suit?
The primary physical difference between a tuxedo and a suit is the presence of satin. Traditionally, tuxedos have satin facing on the lapels, buttons, pocket trim and a satin side stripe down the leg of the trousers. Suits don’t incorporate any satin and usually have either plastic buttons or buttons faced with the same fabric as the coat. Tuxedos are commonly worn with bow ties and cummerbund or waistcoats.
A tuxedo sends a different message than a suit does. A lot of people wear it every day. Regardless of whether you do it or not, it’s a societal norm. Should you decide to wear a suit to your wedding, there is a strong chance that others in attendance will also be wearing suits and it isn’t their wedding day.
The idea of a tuxedo is not only to dress up and look nice but it is most important to commemorate a special occasion by wearing something special that you wouldn’t wear anywhere else. Even if you look dapper in a suit and whether or not you dress up in either, the two ensembles just aren’t equal for a truly special occasion.
What occasion could, therefore, be almost as special as your own wedding ceremony? The tuxedo is definitely the right choice to consider for a groom; it makes your moment special, unique and truly about you and the beautiful bride.
After reading this article, it probably shouldn’t be difficult deciding what to wear as a groom. The tuxedo is the ideal choice but this is in no way saying that you will also not shine in a suit. Choose to be special!
