Only drawback is the bride will want you if you are not the groom, and every other woman in the house will want you if you are.

can you please provide and example. this sounds interesting

Wearing a tuxedo/Evening dress for a wedding is a dreadful American abomination!


Tails ( either black or grey) throughout the day, morning dress (stroller) if it be in the morning or else a lounge suit (any time) is appropriate.

Check out " A Suitable Wardrobe" by Will, also a member here. Search under "stroller", especially April 18,2012 for the classic version. A fine,modern photo can be viewed on the Knize Bespoke, Vienna site under the German word stressman. You will never regret acquiring one of these. I always recieve respectful compliments from young and old, male and female when I wear mine.

I think a stroller outfit will also suit day time wedding.
