Yes, my dear, there is no way out of it, you have to wear a suit! Honestly, I've never met a man that didn't look great in one, so you've got nothing to worry about. Just pretend you're Bond, James Bond and be as cool and slick as ever. Here are a few pointers on how to pick out a suit that YOU LIKE. Be sure you're comfortable with your choice and how it looks on you. There are a lot of different types of tuxedos out there, but you only need one!

Very Formal Day Wedding

Traditionally this takes place between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and the traditional dress is a morning suit. A morning suit is a long jacket with wide tails at the back (in black or grey). Accessories are usually a white shirt, ascot and vest.

Formal Day Wedding

A stroller jacket (long jacket) in black or grey with matching pants. Accessories would be a white shirt with a vest and ascot or a white shirt with a tie and cumberbund.

Informal Daytime Wedding

A nice dark suit, double breasted, with a white shirt and tie are fine.

Very Formal Evening

A shawl collar tux in black or white with all your accessories matching is appropriate. A nice added touch would be white gloves.

Don't be worried if you don't understand what we're talking about. This list is to help you when you start browsing through the tuxedo catalogues. All tuxes are very specifically labelled in this fashion. Also when you end up going to the tuxedo store, you may very well decide that you're original choice isn't what you want at all. Be sure, above all else, that you are comfortable with your choice and how it looks on you because you're gonna get your picture taken over, and over, and over again!!

Based on whatever you buy, you would outfit the groomsmen to compliment you and try to coordinate any colours you choose, i.e. for the cumberbunds, ties and/or handkerchiefs with your bridesmaids dress colours (if you're colour blind, you could be screwed on this one, so don't be shy, ask the wife-to-be)!!
