Say I want to spice up the outfit and add some color. Would it be ok wear a tie with a brighter color like a burgundy or burnt orange or something. To lighten up the outfit and take it away from supreme formality?
Also from most people's experience, is a navy suit good wedding groom attire for an evening reception? Also as it is a summer wedding but the venue will be indoors, I thought a navy suit with a subtle pattern would be good. I prefer not to go charcoal and definitely not black.
Burgundy is nice any day of the week, not special enough for a wedding. Orange is, just, god no. Don't. If you want color, wear a single bright flower in your boutonnière.
Navy suit would be wonderful. And useful after the wedding as well. Vest will be fine with our without lapels.
Congrats on your wedding!
