Well, if you agree, then you must know why you wouldn't do it...unless you're just sheepishly following the herd.

 

EDIT:

 

I think that we have an answer.

Oh yes, I just do what the rest does. It seems like the safest thing to do while learning. Of course, I could just go ahead and do something different but since I dont know why the rest avoids patterned suits I may insult someone if I do something different. I prefer finding the reasons behind things and then deciding whether or not to break away from the flock. Please do tell me though, why are pinstripes and patterns not done at weddings? Assuming you dont sheepishly follow the herd you must be able to give me the history behind it.

Sometimes following the herd isnt all that bad to do while trying to figure the how and why behind it.

Patterns in general are fine for casual weddings IMHO. Pinstripes traditionally have a business connotation, although I don't know why.

I'm not so sure about who or when it was decided that pinstripes were for business, but for me a 1 inch wide pinstripe suit looks better than a 1/2" inch wide one.. So that would be my choice.
