Weddings they are all about the girls aren’t they? What will the bride be wearing? What will the mother of the bride be wearing? Will the mother of the groom attempt to steal anyone’s thunder? This is how many of us girls think regarding a pending wedding but what do the men think? Do they know the difference between a fuchsia and pink bridesmaid dress and whether that cobalt blue handbag is an absolute match for those shoes? Do they care? Probably not – well not to the extent ladies do but isn’t it nice to get to see men in their best bib and tucker and razzle dazzle ‘em? A wedding is a celebration, a joyous occasion and let’s face it the older we get the less chance we seem to have to get dressed up so here’s a mans guide to dressing for a wedding.
So what is the dapper man about town to wear to a wedding now a days?
Sometimes the happy couple have already stated a dress code, maybe black tie for example, then you really do need to get on your tux and dress to impress. If you are unsure as to the exact requirements always best getting a second opinion from someone who is perhaps more in the know and get it right.
If you have a part to play such as best man or usher you may be asked to wear something the couple hire. It may not be what you would choose but be prepared to go along with it. Even if you feel silly and uncomfortable try to stand tall and confident and wear it well – the couple are trusting you to make an impression on their behalf.
Shani is 46 years old and a mum to a five year old little boy, Zak. Together with her husband and German Shepherd Bo, they live in Rothwell, Leeds. For over twenty years Shani worked as a Practice Manager in a Solicitors Practice. During her time there she was lucky enough to have been put through University and studied for four years, obtaining a BA (Hons) Degree in Business Studies. Sadly, the Solicitors Practice closed in September of 2012 but the time felt right to spread her wings a little and set up a Freelance Bookkeeping Service which so far has been successful. The flexibility also allows Shani to focus on her passion for writing too.
She love reading, writing and dancing and has been dancing for about ten years now despite her husband insisting she's not improved, and informing her she possesses the fluidity of movement similar to that of C3PO (the robot from Star Wars)!
Her favourite film is Shaw Shank Redemption, closely followed by Chicago, American Beauty and Philadelphia and her favourite book is Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes.
Shani loves to holiday in Ixia, Greece, loves the Lake District and most of all loves her family (including Bo), friends and loves to laugh!
