I just went to one in April. My FI wore black pants and a shirt and tie. I think khaki pants would be fine though in summer. I don’t think he needs a jacket

It sounds like she is an easy-going bride.  I’m sure he’d be find in a nice pair of Khaki pants with a dress shirt – no jacket (too hot!!!)

@nenedo12:  I would absolutely tell him to bring a sport coat. If it’s too hot, he can always just drape it on the back of his chair. Tan slacks with a navy sport coat should be perfect for a vineyard wedding.

As (the proverbial) “they” always say, it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed.

I think since it’s summer and outdoors, khaki colored is fine.  Maybe a blue or lavender shirt with a collar  and tie.  I think guys look sexy in light colored pants and vests during the summer, but that may be a little hot.

@nenedo12:  I think it depends on where in NY the vineyard is.  The last time I went to a wedding held at a vineyard in Long Island the venue was quite fancy and the men wore suits.  Given that it is an evening wedding, I think dark pants and a sports coat would be the minimum.  If, however this is in a more rural area, say upstate NY, I’d guess that khakis would be fine but I’d still bring a sport coat.

Perhaps the best way to ask the bride without being direct is to ask what the groom and groomsmen are wearing and scale back one level from that.
