Hello. My fiance and I are attempting to pick out tuxes for our upcoming fall wedding. We are a young couple with a traditional/contemporary mix (meaning she's a little more traditional, I'm a little more contemporary). In any case, I really wanted a longer (upper thigh length) tux, as well as at least 4 button. Now - mind you - we are not the type of couple that goes out dressed up so there's no need for me to buy a tux. So I'm definitely renting a tux (I know... you should never rent clothing). With that in mind, I found one I really liked. I'm hoping to get some opinion on wearing something like this to a wedding. I'm wondering if it's too far past the traditional wedding attire. Take a look: http://www.afterhoursformalwear.com/styles_....r=&Nav= I'd love to hear your opinions (be nice about it). One thing that my fiance is worried about is how to wear the jacket - unbuttoned or buttoned (and if so - how many buttons). From what I've been told/read, no tux jacket (outside of double breasted) is to be worn buttoned. She's worried that unbuttoned the jacket will not look formal enough. Can anyone voice an opinion on that? Any additional wedding attire advice would be most welcomed (tips, recommendations, do/do nots, links). Thanks.
