Are dress guns loaded? Perhaps with sterling silver bullets.
It will probably just look like you're snapping crotch pics
Last black tie wedding I went to in Texas they hung chandeliers from the trees, it was quite epic.

Nonsense! You're going to look excellent!
Sounds like you're an honourable mention wedding party member, especially since you've helped him out so much sartorially.
Any werewolf guests? If so, insist on sterling silver bullets!
That looks so much more like Bob Geldof than like Seinfeld.
This is easily solved. Suit to the wedding, tux to the reception. Sartorially correct, shows you put a lot of thought into proper attire, and saves you from standing out at the ceremony.
Yes, this is probably the most correct way to deal, but it is also a pain in the ass.
It's obvious you don't know much about Texas culture. Boots with suits is a normal thing down here.
Just because something is customary doesn't mean it's good.
I visited Austin in August and we had an amazing time, also for a wedding. I enjoyed everything about Tx except the heat. I wore a steel blue linen suit and did not regret the choice.
"Dress guns" at a wedding? Even though I lived in Texas for five years and had my first wedding there, that's a new one on me! Maybe it's a new custom--akin to the in-your-face "open carry" movement. As many of you may be aware, I own far more handguns than any sane man could want, much less need, but I regret to say I don't own a single handgun that could be classed as a "dress gun."
Would a dress gun be something on the order of a highly engraved Colt Single Action Army with carved ivory steer's-head stocks worn in a floral-carved buscadero holster?
