This is a stroller: http://blog.blacktieguide.com/2012/04/12/semi-formal-morning-dress/

A stroller is an interesting suggestion. Beautiful thing about a stroller is that if done DB, you can avoid buying a vest. I would think getting your hands on a stroller could be tricky though. I feel like there is a fine line between a stroller and an orphaned suit jacket!

But there's no reason you can't get this all in Cyprus.

Thx bencal

 

My wedding starts at 5pm (and getting dark at around 7:30-8:00pm) Morning coat probably wont be good idea do you agree?

Second level i might find though it can be challenging as trousers are different color from jacket.

Third level i think I already found it.

Next option, i will go to Greece next week on a trip and in Thessaloniki there is only one tailor i found here. Others probably dont advertise. I am skeptical though as i cant find anything solid on him 

 

Thank you very much for taking your time and advising me

Just a small caveat--be sure to research the tailor you use. MTM / Bespoke does not necessarily mean "better." If you are short on time / cash, this may not be the time or the place to risk placing your first MTM or Bespoke order.

Yes that's why i am skeptical..as there is not a plethora of tailors that i can choose from. Just 2-3 here and 1-2 in Thessaloniki, Greece. 

So I will probably just go and check them out but go with normal suit

My budget is 1600 us and i might get something nice from designers like Zegna Armani or Canali 

Like your suggestions i will go with on of the 3 options below

 

1) 3 piece black suit, white vest, white shirt, silver tie, black shoes

2) 3 piece navy blue suit, not-sure-what-color vest or no vest, white shirt, wedding tie (not sure the color), black shoes

3) Stroler with black jacket grey pants and yellow vest, black shoes

 

Thanks a ton guys i really have more clear picture now

I have this fear that darker colors will be out of place for the setting/time  (also in Australia so potentially facing 35-40 degree heat). Am i just going overboard here? My future bride wanted me to originally choose some kind of mid grey. I've never worn grey before but I'm a pretty hefty guy (6'2 110~kg) so i get the feeling that wouldn't be a particularly good look on me. Any ideas?


Also are there any 'wedding appropriate' ties that can make the transition to the work place? I have 2 ties from earlier weddings where I have been in the wedding party and both look truly awful in a regular setting. I dislike the idea of spending $500+ on ties that I know will likely never be worn again. Before reading this thread i was considering having some navy or burgundy grenadines done by Sam Hober but now I'm both unsure if it's appropriate and concerned what to give everyone else (since now i know the we shouldn't have matching ties).

I think that navy looks less out of place during summer than charcoal and don't think you'll have an issue wearing navy if you want to go this route. If you're concerned about heat and are considering MTM, I'd look at some decent tropical weight wool fabrics (H Lesser is one) for your suit. I don't think that you're going to feel that much cooler if you're wearing a jacket in brutal heat just because it's a lighter color but a tropical weight wool will be cooler wearing than most cloths. I agree with the idea of bringing a change of shirt.

Don't worry about whether you can reuse the ties, but a basic glen plaid or something similar is perfectly fine to wear in the office.

If he has to do a regular suit, it should at least be a three-piece.

I concur, or even a dove-grey / buff vest would be interesting.

Better hope for a really short outdoor ceremony and picture sessions if a three piece suit is chosen for that 35-40 degree C weather. At that temperature it's suicidal especially for bigger guys.

Dove/Buff color vest works best with Navy and IMO looks off with charcoal. Charcoal jacket + dove vest + B&W striped pants = stroller.

I did not know that he was taking about a charcoal suit? I thought we were talking about navy. Yes, dove gray or buff beat only with a navy suit. Sorry about the confusion.

His boss wants him to wear mid gray.

Its all good if Navy is the way to go. I think i can talk her out of the grey inf required. I am allowed to have some input. just have to choose my battles wisely.

Grey and blue are both fine and will look great. Simply a matter of preference. Which do you like better?
