Get a Tux (don’t be afraid of overdressing). You will look
marvelous! [clickToTweet tweet=”We rented a tux from Stitch & Tie by Friar Tux Shop. Wear your underwear, everything else is included! Even socks!” quote=”We rented a tux from Stitch & Tie by Friar Tux Shop. Wear your underwear, everything else is included! Even socks!”]
Read the dress code. If there are themed events in conjunction
with the wedding, (like a Western theme in our case) make sure you know
that in advance so you can plan ahead!
Wear comfortable shoes. Don’t be afraid to let your
tuxedo rental, and I think they looked great. If you’d like to spice
things up, wear a fun pair of smoker’s shoes.
Wear a bow tie! They look great and there are so many fun options
to accessorize with! Luckily our rental came with a tied bow tie, but
if you don’t know how to tie one, there are great “how to” videos
Always bring a suit coat with you. Even if you don’t plan to wear
it, it’s better to be prepared then feel like you are under dressed
for brunch and other wedding events.
Don’t wear black! I know black always comes to mind when thinking
of a formal event, but it’s a wedding, not a funeral! Be bright and
fun! A brightly colored classy cocktail dress is perfect for a summer
Wear comfortable shoes! There’s nothing worse than walking around
barefoot because your high heels were not comfortable. If you wear
high heels, bring a clutch/purse that’s big enough for a pair of
flats. When you take off your heels, you can magically store them in
your purse! Ta-da!!
Make sure you bring a wrap or a light sweater. Destination
weddings typically have a portion of the evening that is outside.
If you have a hat or fascinator, wear it! Remember, a wedding is
a party! It’s your time to bring out your fun party accessories!
Don’t wear clothes that are too revealing. Remember to be
classy, rather than letting everything hang out!
