Groom Style: Can I Wear Tails for a Daytime Wedding?

Q: Is it okay for the groom to wear tails if the wedding is not in the evening?

A: Not really. Tails are more of a super, ultra-formal evening wedding thing. If you like the formal look of a long jacket, however, think about a cutaway or morning coat for the groom. This is a very Victorian-looking, gray, often pinstriped coat, worn with a vest and ascot. It's very dapper, very Hugh Grant in Four Weddings and a Funeral. You should be able to check out the styles available at your local wedding formalwear store.

Can I Wear A Suit While She Wears A Dress?

My partner would never consider getting married wearing anything less formal than a white ball gown with a veil and high heels. I, on the other hand, am not quite as outwardly feminine. It's not that I don't ever wear dresses; it's just that I'm most comfortable in a nice shirt and pants. Should I wear a dress for my wedding to match my partner or wear a suit instead?
