#1: Wear a Tux for Nighttime Vows

Winter is such a festive time of the year, so make sure your attire truly stands out from the usual party looks with a classic black tuxedo. For an evening event, go with a tux in a darker color, like our Black Notch Lapel Tuxedo. Paired with a crisp white dress shirt, tuxedo vest, and black bowtie, this tuxedo is the ultimate formal look.

#2: Slip-On a Suit in the Day

If you’re hosting your winter nuptials during the day, you might want to get slightly more casual and wear a men’s suit, such as our Black Notch Lapel Suit. It is still sophisticated without being overly formal.

#3: Consider a Gorgeous Gray

Gray wedding suits are fast becoming the new neutral for groom and groomsmen attire. It’s not surprising since it’s modern and fresh while still looking elegant. The shade of gray you choose really depends on the formality of your event.

An evening wedding calls for the Charcoal Gray Notch Lapel Tuxedo, while the Iron Gray Peak Lapel Suit is also a fashionable option for grooms who want to wear a men’s suit but still pull off a more formal appearance. For a daytime affair, the Gray Sharkskin Notch Lapel Suit is a great fit for a winter wedding.

#4: Get Bold with Blue

Blue has been the color of 2020—and why should winter change that? Both the Navy Blue Notch Lapel Suit and Slate Blue Notch Lapel Suit are darker options that can be beautifully paired with a variety of accessory colors both bright and soft.

Of course, we also have blue tuxedo options: The Midnight Blue Peak Lapel Tuxedo is perfect for a formal, evening reception, while the Mystic Blue Edge Lapel Tuxedo pairs modern color and traditional style that will have you looking your best both day and night.

#5: Choose the Right Fabric

There’s no doubt that brides and grooms still want to make sure their guests are safe during the wedding, which could mean having some or all of it outdoors. So the weather definitely needs to be considered during every aspect of planning—including what you are going to wear. Luckily, Generation Tux’s suits and tuxedos are made of 100% merino wool to keep the groom and his groomsmen warm from day to night.

#6: Add Satin Accents

Satin accents on your jacket can add some flair to your overall look. Really want to turn heads? Choose white accents for your black jacket.

#7: Go With Jewel Tones

Bring in the colors of the season by choosing accessories such as your tie and pocket square in gorgeous jewel tones like deep purple, rich red, dark green or royal blue.

#8: Don Some Winter White

A white jacket makes for the ultimate formal look. Our White Shawl Lapel Tuxedo is paired with black flat-front pants for a classic look with a modern twist.

#9: Pin on a Beautiful Boutonniere

You can pay homage to winter by choosing an in-season boutonniere. Think ranunculus, wrapped leaves, dried lavender, and berries.

#10: Get the Right Shoes

When you’re getting married in winter, your shoes don’t just need to be comfortable. They should also be weather-proof in case of rain or snow. With that in mind, choose rubber soles instead of leather dress shoes.

#11: Play with Texture

Winter is the perfect time of year to experiment with fabrics in various textures, including velvet, which is a big trend for this year. You can start with a velvet bowtie and work your way from there!

#12: Accessorize Well

Make sure you get a pair of warm socks if you’re planning on being outside. You might also want to search for a fashionable scarf that goes well with your suit and tux to add some flair!
