    I got a wedding invitation last week from a top lad who's getting married next month. I've only been to like 2 weddings in my lifetime. The last wedding I went to - I felt like I could've done a bit better. My outfit wasn't bad, but it was meh.

    This time I'm thinking about renting a suit. Since I feel like the formal clothes I have are torn and frayed in my eyes, even though they may not look that way to some people. I was thinking about going with a simple black and white with a bow tie.

    But I'm curious on what you guys would wear to a wedding or can suggest something for me.

    Simple black suit sounds like a good shout

    Navy suit with a light blue shirt and a dark Navy tie (long and thin so you don't look like an old man...).

    I really like that combination on guys!

    No, black ones silly!

    I could totally work in a mens suit shop!

    Oh, and I think you could add a waistcoat if you're feeling it...

    I usually see guys in brown colour ones, when wearing navy/light blue. Hearing black is a first. I wish I knew what the weather will be like on the wedding day. Perhaps I should have a pocket watch with its chain lingering across the waistcoat too? For showmanship?

    What do you think of guys with bow ties?

    I prefere black. It looks very clean, but brown is okay too. Bow ties are okay, I've never been a fan, I think longer skinny ties look nicer.



    Add in a fedora, along with a long trench coat, a brolly type umbrella should set you up just fine!

    If you're just a guest a normal suit and tie are fine. not sure about a bow tie though?
