I have no idea how to dress my groom and his men. Since our wedding is in the deep heat of August in New York, I feel bad asking them to dress in a tux. Then again, it is our wedding day and shouldn’t they be able to sweat it out one day? Just one day? I will be sweatin’ my a** off in my wedding dress but I’m a slave to fashion — Mr. Lobster is too weak to endure that.
Nevertheless, I can’t let go just yet of our black tie dreams. One of my options include something like this from J.Crew – classic but updated black tux with bow tie:
I’m also feeling the very popular skinny black tie option which looks good on more slender guys:
Here’s how Mr. Lobster looks in a traditional tux. Isn’t he handsome?
Then to throw another wrench into the mix, we passed by this display at the J. Crew Liquor Store in our neighborhood.
Isn’t he contemplative?
And I started thinking, ‘what if we get more creative with “summer formal?”‘ This looks like it’d be very comfortable for Mr. Lobster and I’m a sucker for that casual vest look.
What look will your groom and his men be wearing? Did you struggle with dressing your groom his men?
