From tuxedos to formal wear to wedding gowns, you want to look your best on your special day. A great-fitting tuxedo or suit will transform any man into a handsome gentleman. Make sure to get your tuxedo ordered early and go for a fitting a few weeks in advance of the event. If you decided to purchase a tuxedo or nice suit, go to an experienced tailor to get the perfect fit.

As for formal dresses, what is more formal than a wedding gown? Most brides visit several stores and try on many wedding gowns before finding the perfect dress. With so many gown styles to choose from such as strapless, empire, mermaid, a-line, and ball gown, try on a few styles to see which style is most flattering. There are also a number of finishes like lace and beading that can transform casual wedding dresses into formal wedding gowns.

The bride isn't the only one who needs to look her best. From tuxedos for the groomsmen to bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride dresses, everyone will contribute to the look and feel of your special day. You can often shop for bridesmaids dresses at the same stores that carry wedding gowns. Even the flower girl's dress can coordinate with the rest of the wedding party.

Whether you're shopping for discount wedding dresses, plus size evening wear, shoes or a veil, it is always good to shop around for something that you really love. It is your big day, after all. Bring some close friends and family to help you shop for the perfect dress. They always say you'll know when you find the dress of your dreams.

Formal wear isn't just for weddings. Black tie events such as galas, fundraisers, and bar mitzvahs often encourage tuxedos and ball gowns.
