Wedding Attire

Updated: Sep 10, 2020

Black tie is a men's and women's dress code for evening events (after 6 p.m.) dating back from the 19th century. It is semi-formal - in the middle between white tie (the most formal) and business dress (less formal).

For this reason, the black-tie ensembles can display more variation in comparison to White tie. In general its components are:

- a jacket with silk facings on a shawl collar, peaked lapel or notched lapel;

- uncuffed trousers with a single silk or satin braid covering the outer seams;

- a black cummerbund or a low-cut waistcoat;

- a white dress shirt with a turndown or winged standing collar;

- French cuffs and cufflinks;

- a black silk bow tie;

- black dress silk or fine wool stockings;

- black shoes - patent leather court shoes, highly polished or patent leather Oxfords
