Do you have to wear a suit to a wedding? - Page 3post #31 of 537/9/09 at 2:39pm

The rest of the people wore whatever which ranged from jeans to a guy in shorts.
If you're going to that wedding, it's OK
I have been to a few of those...
A navy blue blazer would be a great investment. You will never look overdressed or underdressed in one.post #36 of 535/27/12 at 10:58ampost #37 of 535/27/12 at 2:35pmpost #38 of 535/27/12 at 3:53pmWas at a funeral last year at Arlington National Cemetery. A guy showed up in white pants, sneakers and a hawaiian shirt. Looked like an imbecile and everyone knew it. All other people like me in suits, dark clothing, and him.
My point being just conform and wear the suit. Little kids are the only ones that generally get a pass.post #39 of 535/27/12 at 4:21pmQuote:
I suspect, so attired, you would be better turned out than many of the guests at weddings I have attended.
Let us bear in mind that a vast segment of the population does not know the distinction between an odd jacket, when worn with a tie, and a proper suit.post #40 of 535/27/12 at 4:30pmQuote:
and as Ian Flemming once noted, when he attended a function which he mistook to have required formal dress, he was approached by the host who remarked "Sir, aren't you a little overdressed?", to which he responded "if the standard of my attire is an expression of my respects to my hosts, well then by whose standards would I be considered overdressed Madam?"post #41 of 535/28/12 at 10:25pmQuote:Originally Posted by LeJouvre

Fleming used to wear short sleeve dress shirts with a bow tie.post #42 of 535/29/12 at 1:59pmpost #43 of 535/29/12 at 2:39pmpost #44 of 535/29/12 at 2:42pmpost #45 of 535/29/12 at 5:40pm
Disagree. A wedding is a festive--not a solemn and somber--affair. For most of them, a blazer would be quite appropriate, unless it's an extremely formal affair or a dress code is specified in the invitations.
