You can't go wrong with a classic tuxedo for a church wedding! Think black wool fabric, black satin lapel, sharp white shirt with black buttons down the middle, black bowtie, white pocket square and shiny black shoes. However, tuxedos don't have to be black or wool.

Many of our clients are opting for black velvet or navy fabrics to make their tuxedoes with. These styles are just as timeless as a black tux but offer something different stylistically. We recently had a client do a green velvet dinner jacket paired with black trousers... it was amazing!

Hi there, 

Church weddings are more formal, so a black/navy suit or tuxedo would look great or if you want to dress up more formal go for a white jacket or tux with black pants. Seal the deal with a Black bow tie. 

From our 5,000+ fabric choices to one-on-one fitting consultations, Bentex will create a perfectly tailored suit that fits your specific style preferences.
