I am the maid-of-honor in a wedding at the end of September in Newport, RI. The ceremony will be held at 10:30AM on a Sunday with a lunch reception to follow. My boyfriend will be attending, but does not have a suit or even a sports coat. He does own khakis, dress shoes, and a dress shirt with a tie. Can he get away with this or should he scramble for a jacket?
Yes, your boyfriend ought to scramble to find a jacket. Out of respect for the bride on her wedding day, he should wear a jacket, a white-collared shirt, and handsome tie with his freshly pressed khakis and dress shoes. Tell him that if he is over ten-years-old, he must wear a jacket and tie to a wedding, even if he has to borrow a navy blue blazer from a friend, relative or coworker.
