Black-Tie and Formal Attire for Grooms

If you’re going to have a formal wedding, you might want the groom, other members of the wedding party, and guests to be decked out in black-tie attire. This elegant and timeless style can work for weddings in a wide range of settings, from a church to a garden.

What Is Black-Tie Wedding Attire?

At a black-tie wedding, the groom wears a tuxedo jacket in a classic color, such as black, white, or dark blue. The jacket is typically paired with a white dress shirt, a black bow tie, and black dress shoes. Simple and classy accessories, such as cuff links, can complete the look.

You might want a highly formal dress code for your wedding, or you might prefer to keep things a bit laid back. Black-tie attire is classic, but it’s also customizable. The groom can choose a tuxedo jacket and accessories for just the right level of sophistication. 

The groom’s tuxedo jacket and those of the groomsmen should be similar, but the groom’s attire should be different in some way. For example, the groom’s jacket might be a different color, or it might have a lapel in a different style.
