We're going to a black tie wedding tomorrow and H2B doesn't have a tux! It's our own fault we left it too late! He has a black suit and I told him to get a dress shirt and bow tie but he really really really doesn't want to wear a bow tie! Would he get away with a black tie instead? Will he stick out liek a sore thumb??! Thanks

And this is why i hate black tie weddings, too much pressure on people to wear the right thing! O:| Have been to a few and some were in black suits black ties but most were wearing a bow tie.

If he's wearing a black suit, then he should wear a black tie, and not a bow tie. Bow tie with a tux only. Think Tom Ford! [img:2q4qc974]http://www.observer.com/files/full/tom%20ford.jpg[/img:2q4qc974]

`Would an actual black tie look like a funeral outfit?

Nah, it's not that uncommon at black tie functions to see a few people in black suits with black ties. Sure, he'll be surrounded by other men wearing the same, more or less.

He might feel out of place, seeing as 90% of the men will be in tux's. See a lot of weddings at work, there's always a good lot of men show up in their regular black/grey/brown suits. So it wouldn't be the end of the world.

A black tie to me even with a black suit would be funeral looking.
