Need off white shirt for a wedding. - Page 2

post #16 of 29
i have told brides numerous times
the groom needs to wear a white shirt and not off white!

I assume the wedding is in the U.S.A. so forgive me if I am wrong about the codes and traditions, but it has been suggested white tie to the black suit - that is normally worn by close family to the deceased at funerals. Black tie to the other guests.

Actually I'm from Canada but we're flying to Poland for the wedding as we have most of our family there, my fiancé tells me that supposedly its tradition to wear a bow tie there, but she could be wrong.

Then that makes a little more sense. Wear one that won't be mistaken for imitation formalwear.

Of course, all the nice, summery options won't look right against a black suit. Is it too late to change that? Even just going to navy would be much better.

I had to wear a cream shirt to a wedding. We all had to buy the same one. It was Calvin Klein. It was very hard for me to do it.

The black is here for good, the budget is tight, I was lucky to find a suit in Canada that I liked how it laid on me and for a low price of $550.

I showed her this thread and she was shocked but to my surprise she actually said I have go ahead when it comes to white shirt :)

 

What about look like this, shirt in such style and a bow tie, is this considered good look ?

The point is that we men don't have idiotic names for indistinguishable hues of the same color, much the way the female fashion world does. That said, just look around and get a good white shirt. Keep looking around casually and if miraculously this off-white shirt comes up and she forces you to buy it, then get it. But plan on wearing a normal white shirt and buy one of those silver wedding ties. Search the forum... there are many links.
Stick with black suit, shiny black suit, crisp white shirt, and wedding tie. Done.
Enjoy the wedding... I'll be married in 11 days!

 

Agree oon this too.

You should get the regular collar and a regular shirt. Both of those shirts look like they have studs and are tuxedo shirts. You are going to wind up looking like you are trying to imitate a tuxedo.

There are ties that are designed for weddings. Others may be able to post examples of wedding ties. However, very few outside this forum will be able to recognize a wedding tie, so it is not a big deal. Just don't wear a black tie (either regular or bow).

No^^^. Wear a nicely fitted white shirt..no pocket/spread collar/french cuffed and a "silver-ish" tie.
KISS!

And I would NOT go with a bowtie. Tradition??
The only thing about a wedding that is traditional is that the bride wearing a white dress(and something borrowed, etc.)

Thanks for replies, I really appreciate it.

Any chance on linking or posting pictures on what you mean by silver-ish tie ?

Do you mean plain silver or something in patter but silver being main color ?
