blog-innerimg1It’s important to dress right for the occasion, especially for weddings. Even if one is not the groom or part of the wedding party one needs to dress to impress. It’s not only about what to wear but also about when to wear it. Under dressing can be rude and overdressing can be awkward and embarrassing. In this article we will take you thru definitions of the most popular formal wear terms for weddings.

White Tie/ Full Evening Dress –

This is ultra formal attire which comprises of black tail coat, black trousers with satin piping on the pant side seams, a white bow tie and a black top hat. “White Tie” weddings are quiet rare these days but you may be required to wear white tie for a gala or some other formal event.

Black Tie Only –

This indicates formal wedding, so you need to be in a tuxedo even if you are just a guest and not a part of the wedding party. A classic black tux with satin or grosgrain lapel, bow tie, cummerbund and satin striped trousers is what you need to wear.

Black Tie Preferred –

If you are not a part of the wedding party then you can get away with a dark colored suit – a black or a grey suit.

Black Tie Optional –

This dress code is most apt for daytime weddings. You could wear a tuxedo if you wish or decide to keep it simple yet sharp with a tweed, cotton or linen suit in dark earthy colors.

Formal –

Formal and black tie are not the same. Formal wear stands for a


complete suit with cuff link and tie. So if a wedding invitation reads Formal then go with a 2pc or a 3pc suit (with a vest).

Bentex Suits did a fantastic job designing & tailoring an amazing suit for my wedding day. I was so happy with the outcome and felt really good on the day. I wanted to go for a vintage look & feel and they totally nailed the brief! I had so many comments from just about everyone saying how dapper I looked and after receiving our photos from the day, I’ve really been able to see how nice the suit looked! I'd recommend Roshni & the team to anyone looking to get a suit tailored.

If you prefer quality tailoring or, like me, if you need it - I strongly recommend Bentex Suits.

I would highly recommend Bentex Suits to anyone looking for quality tailored clothing. I have struggled for years to find suits and shirts that fit me properly (given my tall & slim build) - not anymore! Ajay and Roshni are both very knowledgable, the variety of available fabrics is vast and no request is too challenging. I have 2 suits/12 shirts and will certainly be returning again. Well done Bentex!

This was our first stop for a Bridal Party 6 suits in total!We booked in and were given all the knowledge of a suit and it's materials... The options are endless! But we were professionally steered in the right direction after sitting down with Bentex we were armed with all the knowledge! We shopped around after seeing Bentex but were not treated as well or given the same options with the suit designs and always limited fabrics! All in all we wasted our time going back to other shops and came straight back to Bentex the final fitting was a breeze and the wedding was fabulous!Thank you so much Bentex!

Roshni & Ajay were absolutely fantastic in all ways possible. They assisted with the selection of the suit including the syle and colour. They ensured that the trials and delivery was on time and above all the suits looked absolutely amazing! Would never go anywhere to stich suits anymore
