Black will always be a classic, but if you want to show off something a little different at your wedding (or the next wedding you’re attending), switch out the traditional digs for a blue tuxedo. Blue can be suave, reserved, playful, or chic depending upon what shade of blue you choose. Blue wedding tuxedos can also make a great choice for certain types of wedding themes or if you’re in the wedding party and don’t want to be mistaken for the groom.
When to Wear a Blue Tuxedo
Many couples are choosing to buck traditional looks at their wedding. If you are planning a more relaxed wedding, then play around with the color of your suit. Navy blue tuxedos are a great compromise if you want to keep a little formality in the ceremony and project refinement. If your ceremony aims to be casual, try a cobalt blue or even a daring cornflower blue wedding suit, which could hit the perfect note at a cheerful barn wedding or country wedding.
According to our 5 Biggest Fashion Trends for Grooms, standing out from your wedding party is one of the hottest new trends in the wedding world. That means a groom wears a different suit from his best man and groomsmen, allowing him to have his very own look, just like his bride. A blue tuxedo is a perfect way to stand out, especially if your wedding party opts for traditional black suits.
If you happen to be in the wedding party, ask the groom what he’s expecting from his best man or groomsmen. He may prefer a blue tuxedo wedding where every man in the wedding party wears the same or a different shade of blue. Or, if he wants to stand out with a black suit, you may choose to wear blue so he can maintain a unique look.
How to Accessorize Your Blue Tuxedo
Choosing a blue wedding tuxedo is only the start of building your unique wedding day look. Just as your bride’s wedding dress helps to showcase her personality and style, your suit and accessories do the same for you. When we interviewed celebrity designer Jeanne Yang, she gave us some great advice that every groom could use.
Yang encourages men to think outside the box. That might mean playing around with textures (a velvet suit, perhaps?), choosing a colorful or patterned bow-tie and matching pocket square, or even experimenting with the lining of your suit. Yang also tells her celebrity clients to have fun with jewelry. Pay attention to your watch, try on a pinkie ring, or even consider slipping on a manly bracelet to complement your blue suit.
