men in tuxes

Moving along, as though I haven’t been MIA for the past three weeks. (Oops!) Last weekend J and I headed to our local Men’s Wearhouse to pick out tuxes for the fellas. We wanted something traditional but not too stuffy looking. We also knew that we wanted vests and Euro ties (neckties). I didn’t want to pick green vests, my concern being that it would be too matchy-matchy with the bridesmaids dresses.

We ended up picking a two-button, notched lapel black tux. J will wear an ivory vest/tie/shirt to match my dress. The groomsmen will wear “latte” colored vests, which is really a light brown/tan color, with ivory shirts. They had chocolate brown vests, which is our other color, but we didn’t like the way they looked with the black tuxes. Our fathers will wear black vests/ties with white shirts. I think the resulting look is pretty slick and matches our rustic/natural color scheme pretty well.
