Q: My fiancé wants to wear a tuxedo instead of a morning suit to our 11:00 a.m. ceremony. How can I convince him a tux will look odd?

A: Your fiancé probably thinks a tuxedo is way cooler than a morning coat—and, let's face it, when's the last time you saw 007 in this old-school English look? The problem is that tuxes look inappropriate in the daytime. Your best bet may be to give him another option, like a new navy blue suit, which would be ideal for all but an ultraformal daytime wedding. He can choose a hip three-button look or a more classic one-button cut—both are sophisticated and modern. Bonus: No matter which style he chooses, it will be an investment he'll get mileage out of for years to come.
