Need opinions on colors for wedding clothes!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
What a great website! Anyway, this is for a wedding. Its a lose wedding, so we can wear anything really. I want to look a little bold/different. The colors I want to use are: white, black, or pinstripe. So this is the combinations I have come up with so far and need some opinions please!

(No jackets etc, JUST shirt/tie)
(AND all shirts will be FITTED style)

Black shirt. White tie. Black pants/shoes/belt

Pinstripe black shirt. White tie. Black pants/shoes/belt

White shirt. Black Tie. Black pants/shoes/belt

If you have any other opinions I would greatly appreciate it. Keep in mind though Im not really looking for something to normal! Thanks!

Unless this is a fake and/or novelty wedding show some class and wear traditional wedding dress. If you take pictures and eventually have kids you shouldn't be embarrassed to show them how you dressed.

^ This

If you do wear white shirt black tie black pants you'll be dressed more poorly than the waiters, in fact i'm pretty sure thats the uniform at every olive garden in the country

Would a black shirt, white tie be ok? I agree with you there, I want to look sharp but still a little bold. Im a male guest, im not in the wedding.

Dawg. If you are not in the wedding: dress nice not Heidi Fleiss.

Please don't do this. As a guest, you should not even think about dressing 'bold.' The day is about them, not you of course. You should dress to fit in.

Go to a club and be "bold" in your dress! But make sure you take money for the cover charge! They charge ment to get in clubs!

This. You don't want to be the guy people look at in photo's and say "who the hell is that guy?". If it was your wedding, you can do w/e you want .. but it's not. Better yet .. if your good friends with the bride call her up and ask her what to wear.

Black shirt with a white tie is never ok.

White shirt and black tie/suit will look like you're going to a funeral, but is preferable to any outfit that contains a black shirt.

Since the wedding doesn't have a black & white theme, what is your opposition to wearing a little bit of colour to differentiate yourself from the waiters?

I pulled off black shirt silver tie in 1995. Otherwise good luck.

Incorrect. Tell me zJon, are you going to ask the bride's father for a favour, as he cannot turn one down on the day of his daughter's wedding? If so, the white on black is pretty much standard.

Tell me, what's "bold" about black and white? hahaha. Unless by "bold" you mean committing a fashion no-no, then I need clarification. If you REALLY want to be bold, why not just wear a seersucker to the wedding? Those things are ugly as all heck and come in a wide range of colors. You'll certainly turn heads. It takes a really dillusional (or bold) person to wear one and think that he looks good.

That's ok. If you know what you're doing, the women are more than willing to "pay their way" later.
