If you’re a groom searching for a white tuxedo and aren't having any luck, we are here to help! While most of the attention is typically placed on the bride and the wedding gown, finding the right tuxedo that makes you feel good is just as crucial. After all, all eyes will also be on you.

First, let's break down the difference between a suit and a tuxedo. "The only difference between a tuxedo and a suit is that a tuxedo has satin details. Tuxedos have a satin lapel and a satin stripe on the pants," says Steven Burton, Founder and CEO of Perfect Tux. So while suits are appropriate to wear on your wedding day, tuxedos provide extra details that could help you stand out from the rest of your guests.

  • Steven Burton is the founder and CEO of PerfectTux, a leading e-commerce website for fashionable and unique men’s formalwear.

Burton tells Brides that it's crucial to wear a tux that is perfectly fit for your body. “Having an oversized tuxedo takes away the appeal, even from basic tuxedos,” he explains. “Also, the new trend is having tuxedo pants show men’s ankles so they can wear loafers with no socks." Layering accessories like a vest, pocket square, or cummerbund are also recommended for those looking for additional flair.

Whether you’re looking for a linen tuxedo for your tropical wedding or a formal tuxedo jacket for your white tie affair, we’ve rounded up the best white tuxedos for grooms. Ahead, see 17 options to shop from.

What to Look For in a White Tuxedo

When searching for a tux, there are many factors to consider, starting with the fit, style, and overall pricing. A few tips Burton recommends when selecting a white tuxedo are:

  • Get proper measurements from a tailor.
  • Make sure the tuxedo is a reflection of your style and personality. 
  • Pay attention to pricing and check that the tuxedo is within your budget.
  • Decide if you want to rent or own. “The majority of the time, owning a tuxedo is less expensive than renting,” Burton explains.
