    How do you dress for a wedding?

    I would usually dress up; a dress, some heels, and some jewelry. My husband on the other hand....not so much. I'm having trouble trying to explain to him that he needs to dress a little nicer for weddings. He is big and he is tall so maybe he feels uncomfortable with finding suits? What do you all think? How can I let him know that he should dress up without it turning into an argument or having it be tense? THNX ! ❤️

    Has he gone to weddings before where there may've been a more casual dress code? (Sometimes the marrying couple may ask attendees to dress a certain way.) And is he aware there are big-and-tall shops that will cater to him?

    Try to compromise with him. Unless it is specifically stated on the invites, he shouldn't need to wear a suit. Some nice pants (NOT JEANS), but white jeans, nice khakis, etc, and a button up shirt would work fine. Even tennis shoes if they look nice. My wedding was fancy but I understand not everyone wants to have to buy fancy clothes they might not ever wear again, so as long as you're sensible and dress for the occasion you're fine!

    I agree! Jeans - NOT wedding attire. I wouldn't ever wear jeans personally. Took my hubby to
    Men's Suits | Black, Navy & Grey Business Suits | JoS. A. Bank in the end to buy him some nice slacks. Let him choose his top. He can wear it again too which is great! THNX so much for your response!!!

    I always like to wear casual not overly dress but not underdress as well. But, most of the time the weddings I've been to required a dress code.

    Depends on the dress code. Usually casual but presentable.
