If you're like many of our brides, you may be looking for a color other than black for your wedding. While the black tuxedo will never go out of fashion, incorporating a beautiful soft gray into the wedding day palate is something we're definitely getting more requests for.
Did you know that we stock gray tuxedos? Yes, I said it. Gray tuxedos. Did you also know... that there's actually not much difference between a suit and a tuxedo? The primary difference between a suit and a tuxedo is the presence of satin. Typically a tuxedo has a satin "tux stripe" down the sides of both legs, as well as satin on the lapels of the jackets, a small satin trim on the chest pocket, and they're finished with satin covered buttons. Now our lovely gray suits by Allure Men have just the faintest appearance of satin, making them look every so slightly more dressy for your wedding than the off-the-rack suit that is worn to a business meeting. Nothing makes (us) more crazy than seeing a bride walk down the aisle in what we know is a very expensive dress, and the groom is in something much, much less formal.
It's your day, but it's also your vision; so stick to your guns and have the men wear what you feel suits your day and your vibe the best.
Check out the beautiful photos shared with us by Kate Crabtree Photography, of a wedding party that we dressed in our Allure Men gray suits at the Hardy Farm. This wedding party mixed the heather gray for the groomsmen, steel gray for the groom, finished it with pops of purple on the groomsmen; and the result is pretty spectacular. Love the paisley ties too!
If you haven't checked out the Hardy Farm yet, I suggest giving it a look. It's quite a cool venue for the off-beat bride. Located in the White Mountains of Maine, it offers a cool rustic, yet contemporary.... vintage vibe without being forced. Definitely worth a glance!
