Now is the time to choose the accessories for your tuxedos. His is where you get to customize items to coordinate with bridesmaid’s dress colors, ribbon color, or any other color theme you may be using. You have several options to choose from:




Cummerbunds


Cummerbunds are the pleated belts worn around the waist. They are worn with matching bow ties and are considered the most conservative way to dress the men. Remember always keep the pleats up.


It also helps to pair a cummerbund with suspenders to help keep it attached to the pants and to keep from unclipping in the back.







Fashion Vests

Most wedding parties are choosing to rent fashion vests with their tuxedos. Vests offer a variety of colors and patterns to help compliment any theme you may have chosen. Fullback vests gives a more dressed look when the jacket is not being worn. Boys and larger sizes will usually come in the backless, bib type cut to accommodate most fitting challenges. Some wedding parties that are dealing with extreme climate issues will sometimes use the fullback vest instead of jackets to accommodate for excessive heat.







Ties: Bow Tie or Long Tie


The type of shirt you have chosen will dictate what neckwear options you choose from. Bow ties can we worn with either the wing tip collar or spread collar shirts while long ties look best with the spread collar shirt. Long ties have been the fashion for many years but the bow tie is making a comeback in popularity as recently as this year’s Academy Awards.


You can even choose to have the groom in a bowtie and the groomsmen in long ties (or vice versa)!

Here are some helpful hints in choosing the formal accessories for your wedding:

· When choosing accessories for the Groom, choose white, ivory, or black to compliment the color of the Bride’s gown.

· When the flower girl’s dress is similar to the Bride, dress the ring bearer similar to the Groom. If the flower girl is dressed like the bridesmaids, dress the ring bearer similar to the groomsmen.

· When choosing accessories for the groomsmen, look for a color to compliment the color fo the bridesmaids dresses, don’t be hung up on matching the color.

· When choosing accessories for the escort and fathers, black compliments the color of most any color dress they might be photographed with and also serves as a way to distinguish them as a special member of the wedding party.
