What can the Groom wear for a summer wedding?

We're getting married in February in Brisbane and it's very likely to be hot and sticky. Now, I want my fiance to look sharp, but I don't want him to suffer either. What do you suggest he wear? (Don't worry about best man or groomsmen, we're not having any.) It's a garden ceremony in the shade, and the bride is wearing a simple tea-length dress, if that makes a difference.

Hi Sarah

Best to wear a nice cool wool suit, and an good quality white cotton shirt.

Tie is optional, depends how formal you want the groom to look.

Avoid Polyviscose.

Hope this is of help

Kind regards

Which color of shoes goes with a maroon color suit ?

For wedding

Some people are able to buy Moroon patent shoes other than that, Black shoes are the appropriate shoes to wear.

What colour suits for the boys in the bridal party?

We have 2 bridesmaids wearing pale ‘cornflower’ blue for a modern boho beach wedding, we have 4 groomsmen and the groom wants a blue suit but I don’t know what kind of blue, and if it will clash with the girls dressed.. I think a clean white shirt would be best, but don’t know what colour ties. The flowers r natives pinks grey and green.

Hi  there

Any blue suit will look nice with the cornflower blue of the bridemaids.

I would suggest the groom will have an Ivory tie and the groomsman try to match the colour of the bridemaids dresses.

That should look nicely coordinated.

Hope to be of service

Help needed with the men's suits

We are planning on mixed peacock colours for our bridesmaids ranging from turquoise to navy, for the boys, a navy suit and my groom will wear a dinner suit in the same colour. We both really love the idea of a double breasted waistcoat, but are stumped on which colour to put him in. We are considering putting the groomsmen in paisley waistcoats and ties matching their bridesmaids' dresses, but then where do we go with the groom? I'm thinking it could look amazing or it might be a bit much? Please help!!

Hi Deborah

My suggestion is to stay away from double breasted waistcoats as this is normally worn with Morning tails not dinner suits and lounge suits.

Have the groom in a nice Navy dinner suit, Wing collar dress shirt, with a nice Ivory waistcoat and bowtie to match, and have the groomsmen in a Modern checked navy suit

with Bowties wearing a turn down collar dress shirt and no waistcoat.

Leave it nice and simple, You will enjoy the photos for decades to come.

should the groom have his suit jacket on or off during first dance?

My partner and I were having a chat and we got stumped on whether he should or shouldn't wear his suit jacket during our first dance. If he does will he look really stiff but then if he doesn't will he look less formal? He's not wearing a vest either so it'll just be a tie and white shirt

The groom should have the jacket on during all formalities. The First Dance is part of the formalities.
