Tuxedo Options for informal event

Hi Antonio,
I’m 18 and have an informal ball coming up, i have my graduation tux which i only wore a couple of months ago and still fits and was thinking of wearing it to this so i wouldn’t have to pay out for a suit yet. Last time i wore it the formal way with a white shirt, black waistcoat, white pocket square and bow tie. This time i was hoping to change it up since the ball itself is informal and most of them will be wearing suits. I was thinking of wearing the tux with a black shirt, red pocket square and no tie to make it edgy, much like the way Simon Baker did in the devil wears prada. Just wondering what you think. Thanks!

My Daughter's informal wedding

I have my daughter’s wedding to attend, giving her away. My daughter requested no tuxedos except for the immediate wedding party and has told me to dress casual but not 1980. I want to dress casual and up to date but not look like a walmart special for $200 or less. Any suggestions?
