Wearing a dinner jacket for a luxury wedding

While there aredifferent styles of wedding suits (link to article), the dinner jacket is the hallmark of the most upscale ceremonies. Traditionally ,the dinner jacket respects certain codes.

  • The shawl collar tuxedo jacket or pointed collar your choice. It is distinguished by its famous silk (or satin) lapel (or satin) lapel and a single button. The tuxedo jacket is fitted and its colours vary from black (classic), midnight blue, white or even red.
  • The dinner jacket trousers are worn with straps (no belt is allowed in a dinner jacket). Choose them with a low waist, no cuffs and cut close to the leg. Dinner jacket trousers are distinguished by the satin braid on the whole side.
  • The dinner jacket shirt is very characteristic. It is white and is distinguished by its collar, which leaves all the room for the bow tie, but also by its bib and cuff, which highlights your cufflinks. It is possible to choose a shirt without a front panel, for a less conventional look.
  • The bow tie in satin silk is the emblematic accessory of the luxury dinner jacket. Choose it in black to match your outfit. The self-tied bow tie is the most elegant option, especially as you can undo it if you wish, unlike a pre-tied bow tie.
  • There is also a certain code for the size of a man’s dinner jacket: you must wear a wide silk belt, called a cummerbund which covers the junction between the shirt and the trousers. It is also possible to replace it with a waistcoat with a fairly low collar, which fulfils the same role as the cummerbund.
  • If you don’t opt for the cummerbund or the waistcoat, you can wear braces to replace the traditional belt.
  • The dinner jacket is worn with black patent shoes loafers or richelieus in general.

For arather strict luxury outfit, in addition to black, the colour of the dinner jacket can be midnight blue, or even white (for a summer wedding).
