Some man may feel best in sophisticated wedding finery. Black tie attire refers to what is considered the most formal attire. For men this generally means breaking out the classic black tuxedo. However, you can still have a formal wedding without the penguin suit.

Here are a few options for both formal and black tie attire for grooms.

Great for a traditional wedding, stick with the tried and true tuxedo. The black and white will contrast beautifully with a bright boutonniere.

For weddings in the cooler months, consider ditching the classic dinner jacket for something sturdier to keep warm.

In warmer climates, a white jacket is always an option. We love this stylist look with black piping. Trés chic!
