And still, no-one has even mentioned the fact that dinner suits should not be worn before 6PM. If you want colour, why not look at morning wear? The humble stroller allows for great variation in many ways.

No point with Americans, evening dress for a daytime wedding is a uniform from which many will not be separated despite the many and better options.

I don't recall any mention of the wedding being before 6 pm.

BTW, I am a lady, who had a very formal wedding (Catholic cathedral ceremony in Europe, 13-hour reception in a beautiful early 18th century estate), and I would not have dreamt to tell my husband that he has no role in the wedding, that it is/ was all about me, or what he should wear. No matching bridesmaids, coordinated wedding colours, or similar wedding industry marketing nonsense either.

Also, I am certain you mean fiancee, unless you are marrying a man - which would be completely fine. I do not discriminate based on sexual orientation.

The sad fact is that most men are only too happy to transfer sole authority and responsibility to their fiancées. Most women do not know the first or last thing about men's clothing, and are thus easy prey for the host of so-called "stylists", "experts" and wedding industry professionals that will bombard them with the latest trendy rubbish.

The decline of formality in our societies, especially in North America, has left women unaware of traditions, etiquette and convention, which conflicts with the desire to still have a "princess" moment. I truly believe if women had more access to formal and semi-formal events in their regular lives, the excesses we read about would not occur, as ladies and gentlemen could familiarise themselves with social conventions slowly and naturally. Perhaps I am completely wrong in my opinions, but I do not think so.
