Wife kicked it to the curb. Said this isn't winter you need a spring light color outfit. I give up.Lol.

Anyonone have an opinion on this mundane subject?
Attended a pretty nice outdoor wedding last weekend, I went with a Silk/linen Tommy Bahama shirt, khaki slacks and deck shoes. Full disclosure- I have a younger ridiculously hot wife so no one really looks at me

A lot of outdoor Florida weddings will have dress code on the invitation. We got married on the water. I encouraged casual dress. The groomsmen and I wore Tommy Bahamas shirts linen slacks and dock sliders. I told people they better not wear a tie.

Ask your buddy what the groomsmen party is wearing. That will give you the dress level you need to go with. But khaki pants, blue shirt and a sport coat will get you through any outdoor wedding in Florida unless black tie is specified.

I'm going to a wedding in FL next month, the invitation says "beach formal" attire.

I have no idea what I'll wear.

Thats a linen blend or seersucker suit IMO.

edit: This is what The Knot says. I disagree with sandals though. No sandals with a suit

If the invite says "beach formal"

This suggests an elegant beach wedding—so dress to impress, but also dress for the elements (sun, sand and water). Anything you'd wear to a nice restaurant on a summer night is appropriate.

He should wear:

A summer suit with a linen shirt (no ties required), linen pants (or khakis) and sandals.

She should wear:

A formal summer sundress at tea or knee length with flat sandals. Makeup and hair can be natural.

You never go wrong with a pressed white button down, khakis and clean shoes.

I attended seven weddings last year and was in two of them. My standard wedding attire is a grey sport coat, ironed plain white dress shirt, dark jeans and whatever boots I feel like wearing that day. Usually either ostrich or alligator. Khaki isn't formal enough? On what planet? If someone has a problem with my attire they can kiss my ass, I ain't going.

if you wear a tie without a jacket (unless you remove your jacket for some reason) you might as well wear the burgundy shirt and black pants. 😁

Just do what I do. "Honey, what should I wear?" Then you (A) don't have to think about it and (B) earn Brownie points without even trying.
This and only this. Particularly since your choice was burgundy and black, which indicates you should ask her this every day.

Cool spring fashion = seersucker suit! You can always get the blue, but they are now widely available in grey and tan. The red looks a bit too close to pink.

Ties are complete overkill but a pocket square is perfect! A pocket square plus a flower in the lapel will boost you to another level.

A bow tie will push you beyond the preppy line. Avoid them.

Belt and socks should be fun, but not overpowering.

Shoes should be less formal with docksiders or boat shoes just fine. For more of a classic look, break out the penny loafers from the back of the closet.

If the wedding is during the day, stay away from the more modern looks of Costa or Oakley shades. Any classic frames in tortoise shell are perfect, but the best look would be with Rayban Clubmasters.

Watch should be simple and minimalist, like an analog Timex with a leather band.

Leave the truck at home and take the Bentley-- and keep your pinky finger ON THE GLASS!!!

A buddy of mine got married in Miami some years ago.
As long as I can remember I have always worn a suit to a wedding. So this was no different.
Full suit on the beach.
The groom and I (actually best man) were the only 2 in a suit and shoes.

No no matter what - always a suit for me. The sunglasses are optional.

Yeah burn the burgundy shirt, and if the rest of your wardrobe is similarly horrible...burn it too. And probably have your wife set out your clothes for you every day as well.



Keep it simple. Light blue Oxford. Chinos. Brown shoes. If you don't have an Oxford...I would suggest a Goodthreads slim fit on Amazon. $30, top quality, doesn't look like you're wearing a blouse. Can be untucked as well since it's pretty short.

If you aren't in the wedding, no one cares if you're not wearing a tie.
