The text below is about weddings, but it fits equally well with quinceañeras or other formal events. The bottom line is that you want to dress to match the formality of the event and of your date, if taking one.
When choosing a suit or tuxedo for the groom and his guys, look to match the overall style of your wedding. Think about the dress styles of the bride and bridesmaids and pick styles for the men that match the level of formality of the ladies.
If the bride’s dress is elegant and formal such as full length with train and veil, the groom should complement the bride by wearing a tuxedo. Once the groom’s attire has suggested a tuxedo, the groomsmen are best to follow with the choice of a tuxedo also.
If the bride’s dress is simple, full or mid length with no train or veil, then a nice wedding suit may be in order. Again, once the groom’s attire has been determined, the groomsmen usually follow that lead.
The bottom line is the bride and groom should look like you belong together – dressed to really match each other’s level of elegance and style. Carry this same thought through when coordinating the styles for the bridesmaids and the groomsmen and you will have wedding attire that you can treasure for the rest of your lives.
