Difference Between a Tux and a Suit

Difference Between a Tux and a Suit

It’s easy to forget about finding the perfect thing for your future husband and his groomsmen while you’re shopping for your own dress, but the tuxedos or suits are a key part of your wedding day! What the men wear should suit the level of formality for your wedding day, as well as the color scheme. One of the biggest decisions in this process is choosing between a suit and tuxedo, so it’s important to know the differences:



Suits are the slightly less formal option, and come in a wide variety of colors and styles. Suits are most often worn with a tie, and are made of the same material all over. Often, suits are worn with loafers or oxfords, giving you plenty of options for shoes. The suit is perfect for any event with a dress code below black tie. 



Tuxedos are the best option for more formal dress codes. The key difference between a suit and tuxedo is that tuxedos have satin details along the collar and lapel, elevating the look. Tuxedos are also quite different in suits when it comes to accessories, as tuxedos are worn with cumberbunds or vests, patent leather shoes, and suspenders.
