Help me dress for my wedding day  

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

Long time forum observer, first time poster. I need some help with accessories for my wedding... have got to the stage where I’ve overthought and over-attempted all possible options to the point where I now have chronic decision fatigue, and feel like I need a fresh view.

 

I would greatly appreciate your suggestions as to what shirt, bow tie & pocket square you would wear with the below:

 

I’m wearing this Burberry Suit – it’s a slim fitting 100% wool, grey/white/teal melange (http://www.nextopt.com/item/3331.html#.UiqomzZmgTA). The teal is very faint, and the overall colour impression is grey. Will be wearing it with my Mr Hare patent-capped oxfords (http://www.mrporter.com/product/168211), and will have a billy button boutonniere.

 

It’s a daytime wedding in Spring, but the event will take me thorugh to the evening reception. The event itself will not be formal. The ceremony is outdoors, at a city rooftop Art-Deco  terrace and cigar bar. Think wicker and timber seating, shrubbery, and black/white check tiling. Dress code for guests is Lounge Suit.  The Reception is in an inner-city urban warehouse (http://bit.ly/17FGGfF).

 

Overall it will be a very relaxed and playful event. As such I’m looking to add a bit of outdoor, sporting playfulness to a cocktail look. I like to mix fabrics, so am thinking a linen bow tie, could relax the outfit a little.

Bride is wearing a white / musk embroidered floor length gown (Slight Art Deco style), groomsmen are mixing black wool suits with Gitman vintage linen polka dot ties (http://media-cache-ak1.pinimg.com/192x/c0/52/d7/c052d7eecf5cc368e70258bbcaf4bf61.jpg)

 

 

Thanks.

As a long time observer, I'm surprised you weren't aware of this thread:

Do you look anorexic like the Burberry model?

Hardly. It's a good fit though, for a party suit. Tight - certainly won't be re-wearing round the office.
