Cufflinks / studs for wedding suit?

I have a wedding (mine) coming up and I'm wearing a tailored two-piece navy suit with a light gold/champagne tie at the brides request. It may not match some style standards on here, but it makes her happy and does look very nice.

I'm wearing french cuffs to dress it up, and so need some cuff links. I don't own any, and would love some suggestions of what might color and style would work well. I was leaning toward plain silver cufflinks myself, but am not sure (and surprisingly, these seem hard to find!)

Similarly, I'm wondering if I should get shirt studs (do studs get worn with a regular suit as opposed to a tuxedo?), and don't know what they should be like either.

Please help me StyleForum, you're my only hope

Stick with something simple and tasteful (ie. no novelty or "groom/best man" cufflinks)

Plain silver is sounds good.

If you're wearing a tie, you won't be able to see the shirt studs most of the time.

Don't really see the point of studs with a normal tie. +1 on something plain (silver) for the cufflinks.

studs and links set. classic black on one side and mother of pearl on the other. Links are black and glossy.

Go with either silver or mother of pearl cuff links.
No studs on a plain shirt....

Thanks for the input everyone. This has been helpful in my decision, which has been solidified as silver cufflinks and no studs. Thanks again.

Why not get some simple silver cuff links and get them monogramed. They will be a keepsake. I have the cufflinks my dad wore when he was married. They could end up being a nice personal item to pass along to a son.

I would really only recommend shirt studs with bow tie - shame to hide the studs. Mother of pearl cufflinks might look nice with the champagne tie
