The Tux: A Groom's Fashion Checklist  

With all that wedding planning crowding your mind, you might be tempted to forget about formalwear until the last minute. Butlooking good requires planning ahead. How to go about it? Here's our checklist....


THREE MONTHS BEFORE
Decide what you and your groomsmen will wear. Go tux shopping or reserve rentals for you and your posse.

ONE MONTH BEFORE
If you’re buying a tux, make sure alterations are finished and go in for a final fitting. If the tux still doesn't fit quite right, the shop will still have time to make final alterations.


ONE WEEK BEFORE
  • Get a haircut!
  • Get a manicure (no polish -- just clean, buffed nails).
  • Buy new boxers for the big day. Surprise your bride with something stylish, yet not too risque.
  • ONE DAY BEFORE
    If you’re renting, pick up your tux. Make sure your groomsmen, your father, and the ring bearer get their tuxes, too.
    If you’re renting or buying, make sure all the elements are included in the correct size: jacket, trousers, shirt, tie, vest or cummerbund, shoes, cuff links, and dress socks.
    If you will be dressing somewhere other than at home, put together your entire outfit today. From head to foot, you should gather:
  • Hair products
  • Deodorant
  • Tie
  • Cummerbund or belt
  • Vest
  • Coat or jacket
  • Cuff links and studs
  • Dress shirt
  • Watch
  • Trousers
  • Undershirt
  • Underwear
  • Socks
  • Shoes
  • And last, but definitely not least, the bride's ring
  • THE MORNING OF THE BIG DAY!
  • Get a close shave.
  • Take a hot shower.
  • Remember your deodorant! This might be a high-sweat day.
  • Put it all together. If you’ve chosen a regular business suit, add a handkerchief for some extra je ne sais quoi.

    Remember the bride's ring. Place it in your pocket to entrust to your best man sometime before the ceremony.

    Ask your mother to pin on your boutonniere. This mother/son time on the big day will bring a tear to her eye and give her a chance to offer last-minute marriage advice.

    Get ready to stand at the end of that aisle, awaiting your lovely bride's entrance.
