It’s a wide range, but I always like a shirt and tie. A navy blazer is the minimum, but you can still make a stunning, pulled-together look with tan, cream, light grey or grey pants and even jeans. A tie is optional for a beach wedding that features natural linens or silk. For a fresh, crisp look, a white shirt is always right.
Any advice for the big day?
Give yourself time. Don’t get dressed too early or you’ll end up sweaty, stinky and wrinkly. Let a professional, like me, tie all the ties in your wedding party. That way, you’ll look consistent for the event and for your pictures. After all, nerves can make it hard to get details perfect on the big day.
What other tips and advice do you have for dressing on the day?
Relax and enjoy yourself. Really important: Don’t wear your suit jacket in the car to the wedding. Lay it neatly in the back of the car and put it on once you arrive. During the ceremony your back will face your guests and a wrinkled jacket is completely unnecessary.
