A formal affair

A formal affair

You should wear a black dinner jacket, either single- or double-breasted, with ribbed silk lapels and no vents or covered buttons.

Trousers should be tapered, suitable for braces and officially, have one row of braid.
The evening shirt, in cotton or silk, with either a Marcella or a pleated front, has a soft, turn-down collar.

For the accessories, the bow tie is of black silk. Cummerbunds may be worn (with pleats opening upwards) but waistcoats are still much more acceptable.
Black tie can be made as individual  as you like with a colourful bow tie, matching waistcoat and pocket handkerchief. (They will look great when you get your photos will be taken by your photographer.)

Shoes should be black and well polished, and socks plain black. (not sports socks, boys!)

Now you know what to wear on your big day if you are the groom, but you might wants to check with your bride to see if she will like that.

As a wedding photographer, I always find the groom looks great in plain colour tie with a white shirt under your jacket.

Business suit for your wedding?

Business suit for your wedding?

The important thing at any event, and especially at your wedding, is to feel at ease.

If more formal dressing makes you feel uncomfortable, then business suits are a good alternative. This is a definitely a sharp and sophisticated choice, and white associated with register office weddings is perfectly acceptable for religious weddings as well.

It’s actually more popular to wear business suit rather than tails or tuxedos these days.

If you are keen on creating a coordinated look, you can mix a business suit with any shirt and tie, which can easily be matched for contrasted with the wedding colour theme.

Remember your wedding is an all day event, you want to wear something sharp and comfortable. You will be very active on the day, especially towards the end on the dance floor!

As a wedding photographer based in Sydney, photographing the beach wedding is one of my favourite as everyone seems to be more relaxed, so I can capture a lot of happy smiles during the ceremony.

I find the business suit in the lighter colour looks great with the white wedding dress!
