Wedding Party Design - Suiting up the Groom and the Groomsmen

by Christine Nociti - National Tuxedo Rentals

Tux Tips | How Do We Put It All Together?

When choosing accessories for your Wedding Party, choose a collection that offers you lots of variations to mix and match making your combinations seem endless.  We like the CARDI collections which come in (1) Solid Satin, (2) Striped Satin and (3) Tapestry (Paisley), each accessory styled in 65 colors with “spot on” match.  Additional collections include Kurv, Herringbone, Palermo, and Venetian.  With thousands of accessory combinations to choose from, we know we have what just what you are looking for.  You can mix-and-match these collections, for example a solid satin vest with a striped satin tie, or a striped satin vest with a solid satin tie, or a tapestry paisley vest with a solid satin tie. 

Read on to visualize how you can combine the collections to create a design that is uniquely yours.

How To Dress The Groom

The Groom’s accessories typically compliment his bride.  White, Ivory, Champagne and Pink are common colors for the Groom’s vest or cummerbund and tie.  This choice of lighter color for accessories also helps the Groom stand out.  It is also appropriate for the Groom to wear a tuxedo color or style that is different from the rest of the party. 

Tux Tip:  For a fashion forward Groom consider changing the accessories including pocket square to a color for the reception.  We like silver or neutral white/ivory with fabric crystal accents.

 How To Dress The Ring Bearer

The Ringbearer typically matches the Groom’s dress exactly.  Tuxedo and Accessories.  It is also appropriate make slight modifications in accessories to compliment the Flower Girl. 

Tux Tip:  If the Flower Girl is wearing a colored sash, the Ring Bearer might wear a pocket square to match the sash.

Tux Tip:  The Ring Bearer can also be distinguished by changing the accessory type (Bowtie if Groom is in Long Tie or vice versa) yet maintain the traditional “match” with the Groom by keeping his accessory colors the same (white, ivory, etc.)

How To Dress The Best Man

The Best Man typically wears accessories that compliment or match the Maid or Matron of Honor.  The Best Man’s tuxedo matches the rest of the wedding party. 

 Tux Tip:  One way to highlight the Best Man’s role in the party is to accessorize with a Bow Tie if the Groom is also wearing a Bow Tie but the rest of the Groomsmen are suited in long ties.     

 Tux Tip:  Work with patterns that distinguish each party member.  The Best Man might look great in a patterned Bow Tie or Long Tie if the rest of the Groomsmen are accessorized with a solid Bow Tie or Long Tie color. 

How To Dress The Groomsmen and Junior Groomsmen

The Groomsmen often wear accessories to compliment the Bridesmaids. 

Tux Tip:  Groomsmen can either accessorize match the Bridesmaid’s exactly or wear neutral colors (silver, black, platinum, gold or beige) or to accessorize with a darker or lighter version of the Bridesmaids’ dresses.

How To Dress The Ushers

 Ushers typically compliment the Groomsmen but it is also appropriate for the Ushers to wear a different tuxedo or to wear the same tuxedo as the Groomsmen but add variation to their accessories.

Tux Tip:  If the Groomsmen are wearing a grey Tuxedo, the Ushers might wear white, black or a different shade of grey. 

Tux Tip:  If the Groomsmen and Ushers are wearing the same Tuxedo, the Ushers can wear black or grey accessories, or another color that compliments the wedding party but is different from the Groomsmen’s accessories. 

How To Dress The Father of the Bride  

The Father of the Bride is considered a part of the wedding party.  Since he will be paired with the Bride during her walk down the aisle, a neutral color that compliments the Bride works best as long as he does not match the Groom exactly. 

Tux Tip:  If the Groom is wearing white or ivory accessories, the Father of the Bride might wear accessories that match his Tuxedo.  

Tux Tip:  If the Father of the Bride is wearing a Black Tuxedo with black accessories, consider honoring his position with a white or ivory pocket square to match the Bride.

Tux Tip:  The Father of the Bride also can be distinguished by suiting him in patterned accessories.  As an example if the Groom is in a white satin bow tie and vest, the Father of the Bride can wear a striped satin white vest and long tie.  

How To Dress The Father of the Groom

The Father of the Groom, can expect to be photographed with the wedding party.  The Father of the Groom typically wears a tuxedo that matches the wedding party and can choose accessories that compliment his wife/guest or alternatively he can wear neutral accessories like the Father of the Bride.

Tux Tip: The Father of the Groom might wear accessories that match or compliment his Tuxedo such as grey, silver, black or chocolate. 

Tux Tip:  It is perfectly appropriate for the Father of the Groom to wear accessories that match or compliment the dress of his wife/guest as an alternative to neutral colors.

NATIONAL TUXEDO RENTALS TUX TIP | SAMPLE WEDDING PARTY | DESIGN #1 “THE LUCIENNE”:  Trendy elegance is the inspiration for this Wedding Party Design.  We start by distinguishing the groom with tuxedo color but maintain consistency by keeping the party in the same collection.  The Groom’s accessories match his Bride’s White wedding dress.  Feel free to substitute the groom’s accessories for your wedding with a shade that matches the Bride’s Dress (Ivory, Light Pink, etc.).   For this Wedding Party Design, the Best Man is honored by wearing a Bow Tie like the Groom but in a color that properly pairs him with the Maid or Matron of Honor.  The Groomsmen and Best Man are all dressed in unison yet the Groomsman are subtly distinguished from the Best Man with their Solid Satin Long Ties.  The Ring Bearer matches the Groom exactly.  The Ushers are dressed formally in the same style tuxedo but in classic black.  Their accessories are neutral but wedding theme is incorporated with the Pocket Square.

NATIONAL TUXEDO RENTALS TUX TIP | SAMPLE WEDDING PARTY | DESIGN #2 “THE BRADDFORD”:  We begin this party design with the classic black tuxedo.  The Groom’s accessories match his Bride’s Ivory wedding dress.  We love the Cardi Venetian Ivory because the fabric uniquely accommodates a broad spectrum in the ivory family.  The Best Man in this design is identified with his neck wear.  The Ushers are dressed classically and the simple but exquisite look of the Venetian in Black really speak for themselves.  The dress of the Fathers tells your guests, “we are a family united in style” with only subtle differences in their neck wear and pocket squares.  The texture of the Venetian collection accommodates all seasons and we especially like this collection for late afternoon and evening weddings.
