Suit Styling For A Wedding

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

For my wedding I decided not to go the tux route, as I didn't want to purchase a new one and rentals don't fit me well. I bought a suit from Zara recently from their new collection. It's a charcoal color and I've already had it tailored to my measurements. My question is, how can I make it look as formal as possible for my wedding, but modern at the same time? I purchased a matching vest with it as well. I'm thinking of wearing a white dress shirt with it and a charcoal bow tie. Can I wear the bow tie with the vest, or does that not work? Should I wear the vest with a white shirt and charcoal tie? There are endless options and I'm a bit overwhelmed. Can anyone give me some advice? Our wedding colors are shades of orange, yellow, red, pink, spring colors and she's wearing a traditional white dress. I was also thinking of incorporating our wedding colors in my socks as a solid shade, but don't know how to pair it with the dress shirt and tie/ bow tie.

 

Thanks in advance for the help!

Maybe this should go in "Ask a Question". Sorry about that. Now, how to move this thread....shog[1].gif

It probably should be but dump the low tie unless you are an eccentric professor or senior lawyer and forget matching the flowers.

Get yourself a nice colourful tie - in neutral colours and plain grey or black socks. Your pocket square can have some colour as well.

Enjoy

Sounds good. Do I wear the vest or no?

black tie, white shirt, white pocket square, black dress shoes (that means shiny black)

I hope you don't mean patent leather. I probably wouldn't wear a black tie either

Charcoal suit was a good start. Don't over think this. Black balmoral shoes, no brogueing (well shined, but not patent leather). White, spread collar shirt (barrel of French cuffs, your preference). Charcoal over-the-calf socks (match the suit, and make sure they are high quality). For the tie, see if you can find a shepard's check in a color that is similar to the wedding's color scheme (kentwang.com has a red shepard's check, but I am not sure if that is the right shade for you).

 I chose to wear a white dress shirt with French Cuffs. I really like the idea of the over-the-calf dress socks to match the suite. My Wife prefers an ivory tie with matching pocket square, so the tie is the last debatable piece to my wedding suite. Thanks for the advice everyone!

Your choice really.
