Dress Codes For The Groom – Black Tie

by | Groom, Groom Style


Polka Dot Bride

From the ultra formal (white tie) to today’s formality, black tie. Dress codes for the guys are a little more clear cut than for females. Here’s a quick guide to ensure you get your look down perfectly.

Black tie in the most formal sense requires males to wear a tuxedo – the full getup should include a white, french cuffed shirt and cuff links, a black bow tie and black dress shoes. For the “black tie optional” dress code, the gentlemen, unless wearing a tuxedo should still wear a dark suit with white shirt.
