Hi, I'm Lacy Pool, Co-Founder of Grayson Elise Styling and Accessories and I'm here today at Serendipity Bridal in Austin, Texas to talk about what color of a suit to wear to a wedding. So, I've given examples here of a very common wedding theme colors and what colors that you'll see worn from the females throughout the wedding. So, we have variations of a light blush pink to a darker violet and then a fuschia color here. Now, the most common suit colors are going to be neutrals. You're going to want to think about where the wedding is, where the setting is. Is it indoors or outdoors? Is it a warm climate or a cooler climate? Warmer climates, you're not going to want to do a really dark suit with a polyester blend, either in a, a dark navy or a black. It's going to be a little bit too warm. And for the indoors, you can always do, you know, the, those darker colors, those more primary tones. If you are doing an outdoor, really light khaki or linen suits are very appropriate. Always consider what you're wearing underneath. Make sure that your button down is pressed nicely and very neat. You'll usually take that off for the reception for the dancing. But, this is just a great way to show you what color palettes look nicely with, you know, whomever you're taking, whatever your date is wearing; just make sure that you complement her nicely. Any photographs that you're in more than likely you'll be standing with your date. So, these are a couple of choices that you could wear for the wedding. We have the more prominent navy here to the tan, kind of stone color, the light khaki and always the classic black.
