|Darren Criss is ready to party (gq.com)|
I was so pumped to find this email in my inbox over the weekend, requesting wedding attire advice from a dear reader. What with beach (and wedding) season having officially begun, what better time than now to address the all-important question of what to wear to a summer, beachfront wedding? Here's the reader's dilemma:
I need your wedding expertise for this gay beach wedding I have to go to in June. And by "gay", I actually do mean "gay". Two of my best gays are getting married on a beach somewhere in CT. I didn't know there was a BEACH on CT so I figured it was like water view. So I was going to wear a super hot slim fit black suit with a skinny black tie. Then, i encountered two problems. 1.) I can't find a super hot slim fit black suit with a skinny black tie 2.) the brusband told me that its ON the beach. So, me wearing a black suit is a little wonk-wonk, right?? SO!! I need advice on what you think I should wear? The boys are wearing tan/beige suits, is there a "don't wear white to the wedding" factor with that? I hope so bc I don't look good in tan. I guess my big question is, is it totally gross to wear white linen pants, a nice shirt (yellow, maybe?) and blazer sorta like this one attached?? NOW, its very important that I look fierce. It will be a highly photographed affair and I've semi-dated half of the other place-cards at my table...is that ensemble a little too fey? I was also thinking suit with no tie. But, I don't really want to spend a bunch of money on another suit, unless its hot and slim and i'll wear it to bed i love it so much. I'M DYING to know your expertise??? - Love, Dapper in Darien

Well, dear reader, are you in luck. Not only have I seen a wedding or two in my day, but I also have a pretty fierce gay wedding of my own on the horizon this fall, and I'm already thinking about what I'm going to wear. I'll be working it (the wedding) while I'm working it (heeeeey).
So for starters, let's lay out the parameters:
Connecticut = monied preppy
Beachfront = dressy casual
Same sex marriage = fabulous
Okay great, so what exactly does monied preppy dressy casual fabulous look like?
