It used to be easy to know what – more or less – a bride and groom would wear at a formal wedding. The bride would wear a white or ivory gown and a veil. The groom would wear the rented formalwear appropriate to the time of day and level of formality.
Things have, however, been slowly changing in the wedding world. More and more couples are choosing to forego traditional menswear rental. Some men are wearing suits or even formalwear they already own. That’s what Mr. Twistie and his attendants did. They didn’t match, but they looked and felt good in clothes of their own.
Some men are choosing to buy new suits – usually ones they will continue to wear for business or formal purposes.
After all, a guy doesn’t have to wear a tuxedo to wear a suit.
