Q&A: What to Wear to a Tropical Wedding

Q: What colour should my suit be if I’m wearing it to a late afternoon wedding in a tropical country?  Dress code is "coat and tie."

 Ben Sherman \'Kensington\' Seersucker Suit
A: 
“Coat and tie” is an unusual dress code.  There are standard rules for black tie, black tie optional, etc., but “coat and tie” seems vague. It may sound silly, but you can judge the formality of the wedding based on the appearance of the invitation.  Is the font and overall appearance of the card more casual?  A suit will be just fine.  Is the writing calligraphy and formal?  You’ll probably need a tuxedo.

Still unsure?  I would go so far as to even call the happy couple (or someone else that would know).  I’m sure they wouldn’t mind the question and would probably appreciate your respecting the special nature of the event.

For the most part, it doesn’t matter where the wedding takes place, tropical or not. Wear what you would wear to a normal wedding.  My guess is that “coat and tie” means black tie optional.  What to wear to a black tie optional wedding?  It’s pretty standard: a simple dark colored suit, crisp white shirt and your (tasteful) choice of tie.  Since you’re going to be in a tropical climate, however, lighter colors (e.g. beige, white) are also acceptable.  You could also consider wearing a cream tropical dinner jacket. 

The only other thing to consider is footwear.  If the wedding is on a beach, go barefoot and bring a towel to wipe the sand off your feet.

Q&A: What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

Q:  I’ve been invited to a wedding in November, but I have nothing to wear. I don’t want to get cold. Any ideas?

Chain Link Print Merino Sweater DressA:  Weddings are governed by dress code first, then by season, time of day, and location.  If the dress code is formal (e.g. Black Tie or Black Tie Optional), wear standard formalwear: a cocktail dress, a long dress, or dressy separates.  If the dress code is more semi-formal, you can get away with a cocktail dress or a tailored suit set.

In order to keep warm, a long sleeved dress is going to be your best bet.  With long sleeved dresses, you’ll probably want a shorter hem length (aim for knee-length for a wedding) to balance out the extra fabric up top. 

Regardless, the key to keeping warm at winter weddings is outerwear.  Bring a long tailored coat, a shrug, or a cozy wrap to keep yourself warm.  And don’t forget hosiery–stockings work wonders to keep legs warm on cold days.
