Once we had the ladies taken care of, it was on to the men.
As much as I love Gander, we want to make sure the men don’t show up like this. / Personal photo
Gander had bought his tuxedo before we were engaged. Two years before we were engaged, approximately. A new store had opened in Toronto and had an amazing sale on their already impeccable prices. Gander managed to snag a two-button Calvin Klein tuxedo, retailed at $800, for only $100. Even with that steal, there were still a few things he needed, as well as the rest of our men.
We decided early on that we didn’t want our wedding to be too trendy and to stick a bit more traditional. We also know that some of the men came with extra padding, so for those reasons, we decided to avoid the stylish slim-fit tuxedo. We also decided, for uniformity, the men would all have the same shirt, shoes, and jewellery, but to change the colours.
To go with Gander’s already existing Calvin Klein tuxedo, we decided to add the Tuscany Bisque straight tie and vest.
For the groomsmen and fathers, since we wanted an economical option, we chose the Joseph & Feiss one-button notch-lapel tuxedo, which would each be combined with a vest and straight tie.
Although it’s traditional for the groomsmen to match the bridesmaids, we decided to change that up.
The groomsmen will be wearing the Tuscany Cypress vest and tie combination, while our fathers will be wearing Regency.

In addition, we’ve also decided to rent two bow ties in Bisque for our littlest men. Because who doesn’t love boys in bow ties?

Did you have your men match your ladies or did you do something different? Seriously, how cute is that little boy?
