    church ceremony but garden wedding. i have a pair of seersucker trousers which I'll probably wear, what about the top? what color? i know i should probably do long sleeves but how would that look without a suit jacket? i have a pair of light brown nu buck long wings i plan on wearing.

    i dont have a seersucker jacket though, can i wear an odd jacket instead? i have a midnight blue jacket which buttons i plan on switching to either gold or silver.

    If the wedding is in Bali, be prepared to be drenched in sweat. Very humid. If you want to wear a jacket ensure the material has high porosity and the jacket is unlined or quarterly lined (fresco weave wool or linen comes in mind).

    Generally if you are the guest, long sleeve shirt with tie is an acceptable attire otherwise you can wear 'batik' shirt with trousers and leather shoes.

    can't wear batik; i cant find it where i am and im only flying there the night before. wedding is the morning after i get there, so i dont want to risk it. also thought of doing guayaberas but i'm not sure of my size.

    if i do long sleeves without a coat, do i roll the sleeves up? what about neckwear?

    What part of the world are you from? If you're not acclimated to equatorial weather you may have a rough go w/ the sweat. You may want to bring a few shirts to change if you over perspire. Anyway, white or blue linen shirt. If you find that too wrinkly go w/ a thin poplin. Rolled-up sleeves ought to wait until after the ceremony, if at all depending on the formality of it. Bring a silk, linen, or even a shantung silk tie. I think a rep stripe or plain will look best w/ the seersucker trousers.
