Waistcoat for wedding (semi-formal)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, I'm getting married soon and am planning on wearing a suit -- dark grey flannel, three button -- rather than the more traditional tuxedo. The wedding will be in the evening, at a church in Lisbon, 17th century, very Baroque. I was thinking of wearing a waistcoat, like maybe something similar to what's on offer at favourbrook.com. Any thoughts about how wildly inappropriate this would, or would not, be? I'd be most grateful for your thoughts.

I would go for the waistcoat.

I wore a Favourbrook waistcoat to my wedding. Seems to be working well so far :-). I was wearing a DJ, but I do think it's a great look, even with a dark suit.

Thanks. There doesn't seem to be a great deal of advice re: suits for weddings. Maybe because one has already wandered so far from the traditional by abandoning the dinner jacket...

Traditionally, a dark blue suit was used as the substitute for formal clothes at weddings. Also: white french-cuff shirt, black cap-toed shoes, and a silver or black-and-white Macclesfield tie, either in houndstooth or shepherd's check or glen plaid. I.e., what the London shops used to call "wedding ties."
