H2B bought his wedding suit (he wanted to buy his rather than hire) . . he got a great deal in the Jan Sales . . he got a Hugo Boss suit which is fab but he says "No Way" to waistcoat. He wanted a 3-piece suit but they were hard to find so ended up getting a 2 piece and wants to wear a skinny black tie . . . He does look dashing I have to say :-8 and it is his wedding too . . but I know my mum will say something about black tie = funeral! Ah well . . another box ticked though !!

I think its lovely. I have my groomsmen wearing black ties with a black suit and I got so many comments from the suit hire shops saying the only time you wear a black tie is to a funeral. Black ties are an alternative to a bow tie and they look great with a black suit-with or without a waistcoat. its your wedding and your husband's too-sometimes you need to remember this and suit yourselves!

I prefer a black tie idea to some girlie colour to match bridesmaides!

Thanks. I actually prefer it. . . Best Man/Groomsmen gonna get silver/grey ties. . . Not gone on waistcoats if they're not part of a 3piece suit!

i love the black tie look....himself is going the same route. And he's wearing braces....i love that. As soon as the meal is over he's taking the jacket and shirt of and rolling up the sleeves but braces stay that look!
