    I wore flip flops, t-shirt, and dockers to a wedding once.
    Everyone else did, too.

    Lol at that gal's expression in your pic. It shouts,

    "I look really great with him, don't I?"

    ... and of course, she'd be right. icon_wink.gif

    Don't Skimp.
    There is a difference between Armani and Penny's.
    A good suit looks great on a hanger and can make a good looking man look awesome.
    Guys, all of you who sang in HS or College Choir, remember the concerts, how that guy you thought was just cute looked with a tux on. vavavavooom

    Wear a good suit and a collar and tie. Forget anything outlandish. You're a guest, not the bride.

    Most blue hues looks great on all guys and a safe option, particularly sky blue. A light colored striped shirt and gray suit is a good combination and french cuffs are really old school but impressive (sans novelty cuff links). Yellow or gold will make you stand out if that's your intention.

    A summer wedding allows more latitude for colors. Consider softer or bolder colors for your shirt and tie - like light purple, blue, aqua, yellow and green.

    For a "traditional" wedding you have to wear a suit.

    For a gay wedding you can wear something like this:

    what's wrong wearing suit? Some gay men don't like to wear suit in the funeral, wedding or special events? Have some respect

    what do you wear for a wedding?

    It depends on whether I'm the bride or the groom.

    Seriously, I'd ask the bride & groom, if you know them, or others who are close to the wedding party & knowledgable. Expect you may need to get a suit quickly, so don't waste time, as at least the trousers will need cuffs.

    Story: I was a guest of my GF at a mainline Richmond, Virginia society wedding in 1977. The groom had us put up at a downtown hotel, and our first night there he dropped by to greet us, and make sure our arrangements were satisfactory.

    While in our room, he asked to see what I would be wearing to the wedding. That kinda surprised me, but I took out a dark business suit from the closet. It was a beautifully custom-tailored designer label, fit me like a glove, the latest fashion, over $1000 which was a good bit of change in 1977.

    He sneered at it, and said: "Do you have anything else?" No, I didn't, and why should I?

    "Well, OK, I guess you can wear it, you'll be in the back of the church anyway," he said with disdain. I wanted to punch him out. Like people in Richmond would know anything about style? I was furious, but for my GF's sake I accepted the insult.

    Moral: the bride & groom expect you to dress to their standard, as you are their guests at their wedding. Find out what most of the other men are wearing and try to comply.
