Can You Wear a Coloured Tux?
Coloured tuxedos are tricky territory. We’ve all seen the photo of the 70’s prom date in his powder blue tux. It looks dated and funny. So how do you avoid not looking like a joke if you choose not to go the traditional black tux route? Below are some guidelines to follow.
Black tuxedos are always safe
When in doubt, choose a black tuxedo and you can’t go wrong. The tuxedo rental program offered by Moores Clothing is a good example of how to select the colour of a tuxedo. It features a large selection of tuxedos in black, at least one model in midnight blue, as well as a limited selection of tuxes in white and ivory.
Black formal wear for men is ideal for weddings as it will not clash with your wedding colours. This is an absolute rule. And the main problem with coloured tuxes is that nothing will date your wedding photos in a negative way as quickly as selecting a tuxedo in an unconventional hue. In contrast, a black tuxedo represents timeless elegance.
A white tuxedo really shouldn’t be worn by a groom, as tradition dictates that the bride should be the focal point and the only one dressed in white.
Now that you’re armed with info, go forth and pick out that tux. Be confident that black is always a safe choice, and choose wisely if you make a nontraditional choice. Remember, you want to stand out for the right reasons, and not have people asking themselves, "What was he thinking?"
