When it comes to wedding planning, grooms are too often left out of the process while their brides-to-be bring strict expectations as to what they want. However, one of those expectations includes what the man will wear.
While they may just want their groom to look good, color-coordinate, and wear a tux, the men still have to choose exactly what kind of tux they will wear. Tuxedos have a lot of components that can make choosing the right style at the last minute a lot more difficult than it looks.
Tuxedos Might Seem Similar
A basic tux can be simple to purchase, but the one for your wedding may require some extra thought. There are different styles to choose from. Many people get tuxedos and suits confused, but there is a major difference between the two. That difference is the use of silk satin in the tuxedo design, which is most prominent on the jacket, more specifically the lapels. Suits, on the other hand, typically don’t have any special lapels or satin leg stripes.
The jacket to your tuxedo and its detail can make all the difference. Pay attention to the fabric, lapels, and the buttons when choosing your look.
- Lapels: Notch lapels are standard for almost every tux, but you can also choose from shawl collars, peak lapels, and double-breasted jackets.
- Colors: A traditional tux is black and white, but people often play around the grayscale to stay safe. However, select a color that matches your wedding and the bride.
- Material: Wool is a common material for most tuxedos, but men can also choose velvet for a more upscale appearance in the fall or winter.
- Buttons: Fewer buttons often makes for a more formal appearance.
While the jacket is a crucial part of the tuxedo, it is important to put some thought into the rest of the tux as well.
Are Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani Secretly Married?
After a host of A-listers such as Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner had a hush-hush wedding, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani is the latest celebrity pair to join the league of celebrities, who have married in secret. While the duo never kept their relationship under wraps, they’ve managed to take everyone by a mild surprise with their secret nuptials. Perhaps, they had been dropping hints all this while but nobody noticed.
The Wedding Announcement
On June 11, Gwen Stefani on her Instagram posted a snap where she was seen sipping a glass of wine and holding a gift. Stefani, who was sporting a ring, titled the picture with ‘SHE’S GETTING MARRIIEEEED.’ In October 2020, the duo had announced their engagement after dating each other for close to five years. According to a 2019 report by People Magazine, Stefani had stalled her marriage with Shelton as she was waiting to get done with her marriage annulment with Rossdale. Before meeting each other, Stefani was married to Gavin Rossdale while Shelton was wedded to Miranda Lambert. They walked out of their respective marriages in 2015, almost at the same time.
As per the latest People exclusive, both of them are ‘ecstatic’ about their wedding and could not wait to tie the knot. The quoted sources said that they seem excited about their summer wedding and are waiting for the pandemic situation to improve so that their near and dear ones could be invited too. On June 11, Gwen Stefani in a selfie video had shared that she was ‘kidnapped’ for a surprise bridal shower. The insider also shared that Gwen’s children will be very involved on their big day. If we put two and two together, chances are the pair is already married through an intimate ceremony. It is just a matter of time before images from their wedding album surface on the Internet for everyone to see.
