It is said that tuxedos were created in the New York town by the same name. In the late 1800s, Pierre Lorillard IV was living in the high society town and created the shorter dinner jacket version of the tux to break away from the British look of long-tailed jackets. Since then, people from all walks of life recognize it as the appropriate garb for men on special occasions and life celebrations.
If you choose to use tuxes for the men in your wedding, there are some things to consider.
Consider the time of day and style of your wedding. Looks range from very formal to formal to semi formal and different accessories can be used during different times of the day.
For very formal affairs you may want high collared shirts, fancy cuff links, and top hats. For semi-formal day wear, you might want to use a more casual cut coat and simple shirts and ties.
There are tons of options! Your formal wear retailer can help you with the right look for your occasion and climate.
Lastly, you can always throw all tradition out the window and do what makes you as a couple feel comfortable. Wear a style you like and fits you great!
