    Hi, I'll be attending a wedding in the UK soon as a guest.

    Likely to be semi-formal/formal. I'll be wearing a dark grey/charcoal suit. I'm considering a few shoes. I have an old oxford black captoe that I was originally going to wear. Its classical but I think boring and quite old and a little creased.

    I was thinking of either my CJ weymouth in dark brown or my Church's Perth (a brogue) in black. http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/produ...did=4&catid=38&oldcolid=357&stype=0&overlay=0.

    Can I have your opinions?

    Thanks a lot friends.

    Wedding is in a church?

    Black is the only choice.

    I'd say go captoe - you are there for your friend and not to particularly stand-out, so boring is better.

    It's a celebration with people, have fun at it.

    Some brogue on your shoes isn't going to attract any attention away from the bridge and groom. As long as it's appropriate, wear what you like. Have fun.

    "bridge and groom"- Is this an inanimate object marrying a stable hand? If so, more power to the happy couple !!
