Hi, I'm Sue Scheele, owner of Classy Concepts Design serving two locations in Mansfield and Round Rock, Texas. Today we're giving tips on wedding tuxedo styles. Tuxedo styles are endless. A lot of the fashion that you see today is really brought into the tuxedo designs. The shirt styles for example, you can do more of a modern style with the lay down collar which is the same look as a men's shirt or you can do a peak collar which is going to have a better look for a bow tie. The coat jacket styles are going to be in various colors and, and fabrics. The prices are going to depend on the type of fabric, whether it's a super 100 wool, all the way down to a polyester blend. You're really looking for the quality of the fabric when you're looking at price. A lot of the price points that are on the higher side are going to be for fabrics that you would probably purchase if you're going to buy a tuxedo. So the quality of that type of fabric is going to be a lot shinier look; it's going to have more of a matte finish and it's also going to be more comfortable against the skin. From chocolate brown to slight gray to black black, every type of color; navy blue, you name it; tans for destination weddings and suits, there are so many possibilities for your tuxedo. A lot of brides and grooms will choose to do a tuxedo style but bring it down to a suit level. We have a really popular style that's like a cafe color tan suit that can be dressed up to a tuxedo. But a lot of our beach weddings are done with this type of suit for either the groom or groomsmen or both. The lapels of a coat are where you're going to find most of the fashion in a tuxedo. You're going to have variations from a shawl collar which is more of a rounded lapel and then you also have your peak lapels, your double peak lapels. You're also going to have buttons that are going to dictate a lot of the fit. You're going to have a single button, double button, triple button; you name it. Long coats are going to have more buttons. A lot of men tend to like a single button. I think a lot of that is because, first of all you're not really wearing the tuxedo buttoned up. But if you are, you're only having a single button; it tend to be a little more flattering on the figure for even for men. If you're wanting to coordinate with your bridesmaids, keep in mind that the vest and ties can be coordinated in almost sixty five colors in different fabrics and colors; so you're really going to be able to find something that's closely going to resemble the bridesmaids dresses which are great. You're also going to be able to get a great fit because every person that's wearing a tuxedo is measured to make sure that the custom fit is as close to those measurements as possible. You can also find a tuxedo at any bridal salon that specializes in tuxedos and offers this service. You can also go to any men's store and purchase or rent a tuxedo from these locations as well.

All tuxed out
The groom may not require the same attire preparation as the bride, but he still needs to be dressed and ready for the big day. Assign the task of picking up the tux if it's one extra thing too many. Pick someone reliable and who won't wait until the shop is nearly closed to grab the wedding day wear.
