Evening Wedding Wear Essentials
The best evening wedding wear essentials are comprised of clothing that is nothing but perfectly appropriate for a celebratory wedding held just as dusk is breaking. You may get away with wearing something a little bit less traditional on account of the encroaching darkness (which can hide you, to some extent), but it is best to still wear something conventional that you would wear to any old wedding.
- Tuxedo. Basically a no-brainer of blatant proportions, a tuxedo is a must for an evening wedding as it is a must for a daytime wedding because it is the essential wedding attire for men. You can always rent a tuxedo if you do not have one of your own, and renting one simply makes sense from both a practical issue as it does from a cost issue: Chances are (unless you are James Bond) that you won't be wearing your tuxedo with all that much regularity anyway. Make sure to also include a black bow tie with your tuxedo, as well as a cummerbund, just to take up the formality a couple of notches further.
- Dress Belt. Opt for a dress belt when you are deciding on how to keep your tuxedo pants up; the reason could not be more simple. It would look just horribly awkward and kitschy if you wore your Scooby Doo belt on your tuxedo pants! Traits of a dress belt feature things that work to enhance the refinement of the belt, so it is no surprise that many good dress belts are made of leather, are fine in feel, and are highly brushed or polished to give off a just wonderful sheen.
- Dress Shoes. To complete your very formal attire for your evening wedding wear essentials in just the right fashion, you have to wear dress shoes. You can't simply wear just slightly more refined shoes than sneakers, like loafers or boat shoes, with your tuxedo because they are still too informal for an evening wedding. Dress shoes convey the appearance of being sophisticated and also a sharp dresser to whomever you may run into during your evening wedding attendance.
