    Guest at a May 20 wedding.

    Wedding indoors at 3:00 p.m.
    Reception outdoors from 4:30-very late
    General locale is resort town on a large lake. The families are
    bothl boating types.
    I have no idea of what the groom is wearing, if that matters

    The guests will not be dressed up: I anticipate few suits, and lots of blue blazers/trouser combos.

    I have navy and grey suits (several) but I'd buy something new for this. My preference is to wear a suit, and to wear brown over black shoes. Am thinking of springing for a seersucker suit...

    Expect weather in the high 70s, maybe low 80s.

    Many thanks

    Taupe linen suit perhaps, depending on the precise shade, with a white or icy blue shirt, tie, pocket square? Other than that I'd want to go with a light grey suit. I couldn't do seersucker at a wedding, but hey.

    Not really sure of your coloring - but how about something like the gold, blue & tan, glen plaid linen jacket from Ben Silver? I really like this look for summer.

    That's kind of what I was thinking (I have something in the ballpark of that Ben Silver) but was worried I'd be breaking some official wedding dress code but again, this is a leisure boating crew who will probably not be wearing suits.

    Warm weather, resort town, boating crew.

    Heck - the only sartorial rule you might break is if you actually wear socks [​IMG]
