I've been stalking this forum here and there and have always appreciated your posts and tips regarding style. The time has come for me to create an account and seek for your valuable input regarding the attire for my upcoming wedding. While I have some experience with suits, tuxedo and tuxedo accessories are a whole new playground for me.
I'm pretty much set on this slim-fit charcoal tuxedo:
As the groom, I am looking into wearing a white french cuff pinpoint collar shirt with a dark blue bow tie. I am not interested in any of us wearing vests, cummerbunds, or suspenders. The tux pants are flat front with side adjusters (no belt loops). As for the groomsmen, they will be wearing the same tux and shirt only with a slightly lighter blue regular ties. We will all be wearing the same patent leather shoes.
I'm somewhat conservative and do not wish the combination to look like the stylish wedding attire of the year, but rather a respectful and well put together combination, which does not break "fashion rules."
Do you folks believe that this attire combination allows for sufficient distinction between the groom and groomsmen? Do you think it is acceptable for us not to wear cummerbunds/vests/suspenders with our tuxedos? Should the groom alone wear a vest for further distinction from groomsmen?
I would appreciate your input regarding my questions and/or any tips regarding other combinations I may be missing out on. Links to ties would also be greatly appreciated! Based on bridesmaids dresses and other color decisions already in play, tie/bow tie colors are limited to darker shades of blue only.
