Ceremony will be at 5 or 5:30 and all pictures will be beforehand so that might be an issue. Too late now to change suits so I hope it looks OK. We have a great photographer, hopefully that will help.

Official Wedding Attire Question/Answer/Picture Thread - Page 63post #932 of 24599/30/13 at 5:30pmQuote:
Black lounge suits may not be at their best in day time, but it's more that they don't look good in striking, brilliant sunlight. It's fall; you're taking your photos in the late afternoon, sounds like, so I think you'll look great. Really, once you've made sure your clothes fit, and you don't have outrageous colour combinations, it comes down to the photographer, whether or not your pictures look good.
Congrats on the wedding; I got married 30 days ago. Take your time, soak it in, and enjoy everything. Once the ball is in motion, nothing to do but enjoy the ride. As for pictures, there will be lots to choose from, so there surely will be ones you love, and will want to keep forever, regardless of what anyone is wearing.post #933 of 245910/7/13 at 5:02pmpost #934 of 245910/7/13 at 7:17pmQuote:
Find a topper that fits on eBay. I found it well worth it! Sounds like you know just what you want, and you are well within the confines of morning dress tradition. Check out www.savyrow.co.uk for morning coats. I got mine from them, and it was exactly as promised. Shipping to Canada was under $20. Carry on, sir!post #935 of 245910/7/13 at 10:26pmWondering if I could get some advice on a suiting decision. I'm getting married next June, and it's planned to be an afternoon ceremony. There's an ensemble I saw on here by zerostyle that I really like and would like to do something similar:
I would purchase the buff waistcoat, and I already have a glen plaid wedding tie that I would like to wear (as well as white shirt); but I'm kind of wondering if I'd be able to pull that off with suits that I already own. I do have a navy suit that fits ok; the cut is rather boxy, however (it was one of the first MTM suits I had purchased).
Don't mind the Half Windsor.
My best fitting suit is my Benjamin in charcoal:
So, I may end up buying another navy suit; but my question is: if you were to go with one of the above, which would you choose? Or do you think it doesn't matter either way? Ideally, I'd like to wear a navy suit; but would this be a case where it would be better to go with the one that's a better cut?

I've been to a couple of weddings that called for morning dress (mainly in Germany) and never saw anyone wearing a top hat, not even the groom. Are top hats still de rigueur at weddings in your part of the world?post #939 of 245910/8/13 at 4:41ampost #940 of 245910/8/13 at 7:32amQuote:
That's what I thought, any comments on the combination I've up together?post #941 of 245910/8/13 at 9:00amThe fabrics look fine in the picture though the coat is most often with a back herringbone design. I am a little concerned if you are getting married in 2 months time and still have not started having the suit made that all will be ready on time. Of course I may have misunderstood but I know how long it can take in the UK to go from zero to finished and properly fitting suit and morning coats are not the simplest things to make.post #942 of 245910/8/13 at 9:55am
Just a cautionary tale for all the grooms-to-be out there: My brother decided a couple weeks ago that he was going to order a MTM suit online to wear as a groomsman in my wedding party. I warned him that he needed to allow more time than that for a mail-order MTM suit, but he ignored me. I spoke with him yesterday, and shocker of shockers, it looks like it won't arrive in time.
To anyone planning their wedding attire (and especially anyone contemplating a MTM or custom-orderered suit), it is literally never too early to get your clothes together. Unless you seriously anticipate that you will be gaining or losing a ton of weight in the span of a few months, there is nothing to lose by getting everything organized months in advance. It's not like your clothes have a best-before date; they will still be there waiting for you when the big day rolls around.post #943 of 245910/8/13 at 11:06ampost #944 of 245910/8/13 at 11:37ampost #945 of 245910/8/13 at 12:21pmQuote:
They are not de rigeur - nor is morning dress. They are just fantastic, and ought to be worn at every possible occasion.
