What can we take from all this? Don’t feel like you have to be so casual. Although you can wear whatever you are comfortable in- It’s your wedding day. When else will you get to wear a tuxedo? There is something about a guy, dressed to the nines, that will make a women weak in the knees.

You only have one wedding day, a celebration of you. Might as well dress for the occasion. Tan pants and a tie can be worn to church. A tuxedo can be worn to a wedding. We are so excited, The Return of the Tuxedo.
