Frequently, a bride wants her groom and his men to wear tuxedos. This is especially true when she wants to wear a formal gown. However, bridal attire should match the formality of all elements of the wedding. For example, if it is a formal evening affair, tuxedos would be an appropriate choice. Consequently, if the tuxedo is preferred, it’s best to shift the wedding into the evening.
