Sorry if this is a totally stupid question but we've never been to a wedding reception before and DH is a stressing over what to wear. I'm assuming a shirt and trousers? Can anyone recommend any nice ones? He is 28.
I would say it depends on the people who have done the invite! But as a minimum it would be a lounge suit if you are going to the ceremony and tailored trousers and suit shirt tucked in if just evening party. Double check with hosts! If they are really posh it seems to be morning suits for the day bit and black tie for evening bit ie you have to change.
If you able to afford to I would see this an op for your partner to invest in a properly measured for suit. A classic cut and it will be there for a lifetime. You always update the accessories and shirt. H is a builder and done this - he can attend at a moments notice and I have more money for my own outfit
If it's just the reception OP, some suit / formal trousers and a collared shirt. Is your husband's brother or similarly aged friend going along too? Perhaps he can see what they're wearing. Or look at photos on social media from any weddings of people in the same friendship group or family as the bride and groom?
It's DHs work colleague s wedding. We are just invited to the evening. I've asked DH what they are like/what type of wedding it is and he 'doesnt know'. Great help! I don't really know as I've never met them. Sorry I know I sound totally stupid here but what is a lounge suit? Could someone post a picture please? Thanks for all the help so far. Looking up wedding pictures on Facebook is a good idea.
