I may be attending a summer wedding in Sacramento sometime next month and was wondering if a bow tie, chinos and skipping the jacket would be a terrible thing to do. If not, what else would you all suggest, I'm 20 and looking to dress down a bit since my girlfriend tells me the groom isn't wearing black and white or anything. If I remember correctly, he's wearing champagne color.

He's wearing champagne, you're going as a chippendale? What kind of wedding is this, anyway?



Sorry.

If you're 20 and willing to wear a bow tie (I did when I was 20, more than I do now, actually), I think the look would be fine, if a bit on the preppy side. you could wear yellow pants or Nantucket Reds if you really wanted to go that way...

Haha, no need to apologize. And I'm definately willing to wear a bow tie. Maybe I'd be willing to do the preppy thing if I rounded up enough money to buy some new pants.
