This one’s for the guys. The guys with their peak lapels and shawl collars, perfectly tied ties and just shined shoes. And the guys with their suits. Oh their suits! We so often overlook what grooms are wearing, assuming all suits and tuxedos are created equal so when we stumbled upon The Black Tux and saw their incredible suit and tuxedo assortment…we were impressed! Their suits come in such a breadth of styles and colors, looking over their selection we wondered, what would a winter wedding look like if inspired by a groom’s suit? Scroll through to see our three favorite color palettes and find out who wore it best…
The elusive midnight tuxedo, a big trend at the moment and we’re all about it as a modern upgrade on your traditional black tux. For the perfect mix we love a midnight tuxedo with a black lapel accent and it pairs perfectly with our Midnight Parker. A geometric patterned linen in just the right color combination. Navy has always been a wedding color palette favorite and we especially love it for winter weddings with a pop of Marsala (we’re big fans of Marsala). If you’re feeling super swanky, maybe don a Marsala-hued smoking jacket to pair with our Wine Velluto linen.
Maybe you’re ditching the cold weather for a tropical wedding in Miami – we can’t blame you – and a more colorful wedding palette. We’re totally feeling shades of olive green, to fit right in with the lush foliage, anchored with black details, to keep it classy. Go all in on the full black tuxedo or swap the jacket for an emerald green and you’ll feel at one with the tropics. As for tabletop, keep it light without losing the elegance. We love the idea of a patterned linen, like our Honeydew Palomino linen, on one table style mixed with a combination of our Apple Metallic Burlap and patterned Black Ink Napkin on the other style. That’s a winter wedding in the tropics!
And if you’re going to a destination spot for your winter wedding perhaps you’ve landed in New Orleans just in time for Mardi Gras! Let’s embrace the location with a palette in traditional shades of plum (and maybe even Ultra Violet). We’re so into a grey suit, it really anchors the look, and creates a great base for a tablescape. If you want to add that Nola flair to your party we like the Preston Bailey Collection Off White Shimmer or the Natural Mini Koi to give it that sparkle! Or really embrace the French Quarter with a fleur-de-lis motif, like our Plum Neiman linen. Of course dress for the occasion, perhaps a head to toe Rose colored suit, a perfect match for our Rose Velluto linen. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
