I'm more of the conservative black, but this is nice for a less conservative wedding. I would rock it.

===================================

OK, I just have to say this. There is no such thing as a gray tux. Dinner jackets come in black for winter and white for summer. Bow ties only.
Dinner jackets are NOT worn before 6 PM at the earliest. Gray, green, orange, brown, or whatever are worn by the band leader and his people.
Very Formal evening wedding = full evening dress (white tie and tails).

If it is to be a formal daytime wedding it is full morning coat and waist coat with stiff collar shirt and long tie, not an ascot, which is worn with an open collar shirt and blazer.
Semi-formal is a short morning coat (sometimes called a stroller or directors jacket) with a turn down collar and long tie. Lot of leeway in the waistcoat with a short morning coat.

Informal is a suit with business shirt and tie.

Casual is anything from a blazer to whatever.

Note: Deep South in warm weather. White linnen suit, with or without waistcoat, white shirt, long tie. Can be worn day or evening. Old tradition in New Orleans.

If its your wedding you choose what you want. Just don't call it something it isn't and don't wear the wrong rig at the wrong time.

The eleventh commandment as handed down to gentlemen since time immemorial!

My friend's hubby wore a linen suit like this one from JCrew for her beach wedding in July.

1. Breathe.
2. I believe that I have heard this before. Excellent info for the technicalities of things.

Thank you Vesper Lynd. (See Casino Royal to get the reference)

We all know most weddings are not formal in the US these days. If it was so you would not see ties or **gasp** ascots at weddings. Thanks for the lesson in proper formal wear, but if we were doing that, then this would be a very boring thread from a Groomsmen prospective.

I'm freaking out. Two of my bridesmaids' dresses haven't come in yet, and the wedding is less than three weeks away!

Just to update, I'm ordering this one!

Yikes indeed! Have you talked to the store? Maybe there was a mix up at the designer's end (happens.)

Wow, I didn't realize it was that soon. I think I lost a couple months this summer. I'm kind of a planner for the apocalypse, so here's my suggestion:

Since you're near the Nordstrom Mecca, do you think you would want to find some dresses they carry and get them collected in the event the dresses don't show up? I can't remember if you're attendants are wearing matching dresses but at least you would have something on hand. I know there are even seamstresses in store so you could have the dresses there and bring your ladies down if things are cut close, with the same day turn around.

Yay for customer service and a generous return policy!

Just out of curiosity, when did you tell the store that the wedding was? One of the first things I learned while my friends & I were getting married was to tell the store that your wedding is at least three weeks prior to the real date!
