The fiancé and I decided to go tux rental shopping tonight (instead of painting the bathroom cabinets). On the way to the shop, I was pretty confident that this was going to be a straight forward ordeal. I love men, especially my man, in formal wear, so I figured this would be a simple straight forward excursion. We get a traditional tux, maybe a pop of silver on the groomsmen (my wedding colors are blue and silver) and voila! we are done. Turns out that tuxes are much more complicated things, and there are options. LOTS of options. The man at the store somehow made me feel silly because I couldn’t tell him if my dress was white or ivory (it is honestly dancing the line of the two) and had the fiancé convinced that a white vest and tie was much more stylish than the traditional white shirt with black everything else. Needless to say my head started spinning, so we ordered the tuxes with the assurance that we could change our minds on the colors up to two weeks before the big day. I left the store determined to do my tux homework (I am a little embarrassed that I didn’t do this before the fitting) so I could figure out what exactly is the right outfit for the fiancé. Here are some options that I found:

Tell me… what type of tux do you prefer to see your men in? (or men – what type of tux do you like to wear?)
