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.
