Frederick Thomas London Top Tips

The dress code for a marquee wedding isn't specific (unless you've been instructed so), so keep to a traditional dress code. But make sure you incorporate in our top tips to your attire. An outdoor wedding is a completely different ball game when it comes to suiting up!

Be prepared for all weather

We hate to start off our top tips in a negative way, but after all, it is the UK! You can never predict wedding weather, so it's important to be prepared for all eventualities, especially if it's in a marquee!

Embrace the outdoors

Whatever the weather outcome, you can always embrace the outdoors! Marquee wedding are unique in that they are usually set in the middle of a field in the countryside. So why not welcome the nature around you. If you read last weeks blog you'll know what's coming! Florals of course! Floral suit accessories are already a wedding classic, particularly prominent for this type of wedding. So get involved! From fully flourishing suits to more subtle blossoming lapel pins, our floral blog has got everything you need to fully embrace the outdoors!

Stay on your feet

You might think this top tip only applies to those wearing high heels, but think again! A brand new pair of brogues with smooth soles can be a risk (especially on wet grass!). So, if you've bought a new pair for the wedding make sure you wear them in before hand. Alternatively, scuff'em up! Use sandpaper to lightly give the soles of your shoes a once over. This might not seem like top priority, just trust us. Keep the embarrassing moves for later on in the night!

Keep it Casual

A rolled up sleeve and undone top button wouldn't be a disaster. Relax and enjoy the day, while still keeping to wedding dress code protocol of course!

Bring an extra layer

So there you go, our top tips on how to suit up for a marquee wedding! We hope they've helped!
