3 Occasions When You Should Wear a Tuxedo, Ansonia, Connecticut

A nice, well-tailored suit and a good tie are perfectly adequate for most situations, but some occasions call for something more formal. When the event requires a touch of sophistication, a tuxedo is the ideal choice. Below are a few occasions where you should don a tux.

3 Events That Call for a Tuxedo

1. Your Wedding

A tuxedo is always the best option for your wedding. While getting married in a regular suit is becoming more popular, formal wear sends the message that today is a special day. If you’re a groomsman, your tuxedo should match the groom’s.

2. Opening Night

tuxedosWhile the opera, ballet, or symphony may not have an official dress code most of the time, it’s traditional to treat opening night as a black-tie affair. While you might see some people dressed in business attire or casual clothing, it’s always better to be over-dressed than under for these occasions. 

3. A Formal Ball or Dance

You might be invited to a fundraiser or an event at the museum, where you’ll want to look your best. Or, if you’re getting ready for a formal dance, like prom, consider a tuxedo. In general, when the invitation says “black tie optional,” it’s safer to follow the instructions and choose the formal attire.
