Not true in all parts of the world, certainly not in Italy where again the "mezzo tight" is still worn at weddings and judging for the following example, even in USA not too long ago (wedding of president Harry Truman's daughter):
Well, the Italian Mezzo tight is not a stroller so different rules apply I guess - anyhow in the rest of the world, if you want to use a odd waistcoat for a wedding, wear it with a morning suit - also there are no substitutes for the black tie and the cashmere (striped) trousers to be worn with a Stroller ( or Black jacket ( hence no grays either) as it is known i the UK)
However, as has been previously noted - almost nobody will know, and consequently care!
As for the Truman wedding, I'm afraid our american cousins as it were, are perhaps not the most likely source in these matters Edited by Butler - 1/27/16 at 4:54am
