Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Planning such a special day can be incredibly exciting as you curate each element to perfectly reflect your style. Music, in particular, is a huge part of many people's weddings – with couples even going as far as flying in bands from all over the world just to enjoy their favorite genre.
Any music fan is bound to want to get in on the action and show their moves on the dance floor, especially during a celebration as memorable as your wedding. However, the formality of occasion wear can often mean that it’s quite restrictive, so you’ll want to ensure that you choose a tuxedo that allows you plenty of freedom to move.
In this article, we look at three factors that you should take into consideration when choosing a tux that you’ll be comfortable enough to dance in.
Choose lightweight and breathable materials
The fabric that your tuxedo is made from is key, as you’ll want something lightweight enough so that it doesn’t weigh you down, but that’s also breathable so you don’t look like you’ve just run a marathon.
Wool is an excellent contender as the fabric naturally has a certain amount of stretch, while also being breathable. What’s more, it’s a sustainable fabric that washes and wears incredibly well, meaning a wool tuxedo is likely to last you a long time. Or, if you’re looking for something a bit different, a velvet tuxedo jacket can feel just as light, giving you plenty of freedom to move.
Opt for a roomy style
Certain styles of tuxedo are bound to be more roomy than others, even if they’re the same size. Aside from the obvious slim and skinny fit options, jackets that are double-breasted are often a slimmer fitting style, which can make them feel more restrictive. Of course, you’ll have the option to take your jacket off on the dancefloor, but it’s important to be aware of these style differences if you’re someone who intends to keep your jacket on throughout the day and night.
Similarly, you’ll want to consider the fit of your shirt and neckwear, too. There’s a huge selection of different shirt and collar options to choose from, and how they’ll fit will vary on each person, so it’s a good idea to try some on before you decide. As for neckwear, a tie can often offer more flexibility than a bowtie, owing to its ability to be easily loosened without losing its formal appearance.
Custom-tailored is always best
If you’re ever in doubt about which tuxedo will best suit and fit your body, the best option is to go to a tailor. They’ll have expert knowledge and will be able to recommend the best styles for you, allowing you to create an entirely custom tuxedo for your special day. If you’re someone who wants to spend hours on the dancefloor, they can take this into consideration too, helping you pick flexible fabrics and leaving some extra room for you to move around.
