    Hi everyone,

    I need help. I have done endless research and the challenge of finishing off my wedding suit is getting frustating.

    Im wearing a dark navy suit/white shirt/grey wool waistcoat and burgandy polka bow tie.i just need the right pocket square to finish it off perfectly.

    There seem to be so many factors to getting it right And its overwhelming.

    Thanks in advanced

    So, a couple of things:

    1) The wool waistcoat is pretty informal, and also, if you are getting married this summer, you will probably collapse of heat exhaustion in that thing, Maybe consider something less warm?

    2) A simple white pocket square would probably do nicely. You already have a polka dotted bowtie. No need to overly complicate things.

    The wedding is in late winter so should be ok regarding warmth,
    Ill also be wearing a white flower pin of some sort, do you think itll be to much white ?

    Thanks for your advice

    Ditch the vest and throw in a white pocket square.
