    Hi.
    I'm getting married next year, July.
    I really not too keen on wearing a suit.

    I'm getting married in Poland, so it should be pretty hot. Can anyone give me some advice or recommendations?

    I'm of Chinese ethnicity and am 5 foot 7. My fiancee will be going the traditional white dress route.

    I've seen some nice Chinese grooms jacket, such as this:




    My only concern is that it might be a bit too... informal. I wouldn't want to seem like I'm wearing a banqueting jacket when the Mrs is wearing the most expensive dress of her life!

    The dress code is Garden Formal - DRESS TO IMPRESS, BUT ALSO DRESS FOR THE WEATHER! ANYTHING YOU'D WEAR TO A RESTAURANT ON A NICE SUMMER DAY IS APPROPRIATE - TIE OPTIONAL.

    Why not just go without a tie and wear a white shirt and pants?

    I like the Chinese jacket you linked to, I don't think it looks too informal. It's nice to celebrate your culture.

    Congratulations on the wedding btw.

    That jacket is really nice! I'd definitely consider it formal enough. I agree with Saber, it'd be a really nice nod to your culture

    The outfit in your post is really nice - congratulations on the wedding!

    I think wearing a nice shirt without a tie and smart trousers would be just as nice as a suit - wear whatever you feel comfortable in
