I am having trouble deciding on the accessories for my wedding at the end of this month. I am wearing a one button, peak lapel tux. My shirt is pleat front with a turn down collar and a black bow tie. My problem lies in the braces/cummerbund/studs department. My original thought was to wear braces without a cummerbund (wearing both seems like too much). This configuration would leave 5 buttons exposed above the waistband of my trousers (not counting the collar button behind my bow tie). Most stud sets that I've seen have only four studs, which would leave one standard button exposed. How have others overcome this problem? As I see it, my options are as follows: 1) Braces, 4 studs, one exposed button. 2) Cummerbund, no braces 3) Braces, buy a second set of studs (not preferred for financial reasons...) On a related note, is it even appropriate to not wear either a cummerbund or vest?
