Tuxedosonline.com explains weather to wear a vest or cummerbund with a tuxedo.  The advantages of bo Tuxedo Vests vs. Cummerbund
At Tuxedosonline we make vests, cummerbunds, bow ties, and neckties. We always get the question whether or when a person should wear a vest or cummerbund. The positive about wearing a vest is that you could take your coat off and you still have a coat on, which is why in England a vest is called a waistcoat. You are still formal if you take your coat off. For formal wear I’d recommend a vest; it looks better especially if you’re going to take the coat off and start dancing. The advantages of a cummerbund and bow tie is that you can wear really nice studs and cuff links with them. Really nice cuff links don’t show a whole lot. You usually have to be dancing or move your arm up to show off your cuff links. Nice studs really dress up a tuxedo, and they will go into where the necktie goes. If you have nice studs or you want to buy studs and show them off, the thing to wear is a cummerbund and bow tie.

Here are some FAQ about wedding tuxedos

When should I reserve my tuxedo?
Its never too early to shop for your tuxedos. In general, you should start picking out the men's formalwear after you have bought the wedding dress, and decided on the colors and style of the bridesmaid dresses. The first visit should be with your fiancé to decide on the styles of the groom's and attendant's tuxedos. Based on the colors of the wedding, you can choose vests or cummerbunds for the attendants. The groom should always insist on trying his tuxedo as a precaution; choosing from a picture can be deceiving.

How do I decide on accessories?
Generally, the attendants wear accessories associated with the colors that are chosen for the wedding. Full back vests are the newest items in men's formalwear. They are more comfortable and will make you look like you own your tuxedo because most tux shops don't carry full back vests. We have the largest selection of full back vests in stock in the Los Angeles area. They come in all colors and various styles. The professionals at Gregory's will help you choose the accessories for your party. Another important accessory is the shoe. We have three beautiful styles to chose from. The entire wedding party should wear the same type of shoes in order to keep the party in unison and to assure a good look. You can try on all of these accessories at our store until you find the right ones.

Who should wear a tuxedo?
The Groom and attendants of course, but not exclusively. The ring bearer and candle boys should also be in a tuxedo. The fathers will look and feel better in a tuxedo rather than a suit. After all, it wouldn't look good if the bride's father gave her away in a suit. It would also be a big compliment to the grandfathers to have them wear a tuxedo. Today's weddings are now calling for guests to wear tuxedos as well. The way to do this is to write Black Tie Invited.

Many of my attendants are out of town. How do I get them fitted?
You can print out the form at the bottom and take it to any Tuxedo shop in the country. They will give you a courtesy fitting, and then you can fax, call in, or E-mail us the measurements and we will prepare the tuxedos that you choose for that person.

What if something doesn't fit?
We insist that you try on your tuxedo before picking it up. If there is something wrong, all our stock is on the premises. We can either alter or change your tuxedo in ten minutes. Ask if other tuxedo shops can do this; it is very rare.

Please print out this handy measurement form and take it to your local formalwear shop for a courtesy fitting.
