You young ones probably don’t remember this tune, but Frank Sinatra (you probably don’t know him either) :) sang it in 1955. Look it up, it’s pretty corny. But we digress. What we are really here to do is assist you in learning all you need to know about getting ready for the upcoming nuptials (yours, or someone else’s). Here’s something else you might want to look up. Where did the word nuptials come from? It’s from the Latin for marry. But, again, we digress. Here’s what you need to know about nuptial ceremonial dress.
The picture to the left is a picture of the bride and her groom, who happens to be wearing a Rose Tuxedo summer tuxedo. You might be wondering what it is that is different about a summer tuxedo? Obviously, Arizona summers tend to be, well,hot. Temperatures dictate which weight or appropriately colored tuxedo is a good choice, since both help alleviate a bit of the intensity of the high temperatures. Here are four options, which Rose Tuxedo can supply, that are going to look good on you and feel good in warm temperatures.
1. If the wedding is going to take place in a church, temple, or cathedral, that means you are probably going to need the traditional get-up. That would mean suit or tuxedo in black or midnight blue; a white dress shirt; a black bow tie; a cummerbund, and black dress shoes. Interestingly, it is not so much the weight of the fabric in a tux that makes it cooler, it is the weave. Loosely woven fabric is cooler because it allows for air circulation. Summer tuxedos, in order to be cooler, need to be about an 8 oz. twill, or an 8 oz. tropical material.
