    Oh gosh I don’t really know, but I’ve seen some pics where the groom did the white shirt, white vest, and the pics unbuttoned look pretty informal. You kinda lose the best and it looks more like a shirt with a sport coat. So… I guess my though it just be aware that unbuttoned can look really informal, which is totally fine if this is what you are going for

    How formal is your dress?  I think his attire should match the formality of yours.  If you have a formal gown, I just don’t think unbuttoned will make things look put together.  If your dress is more informal, you could get away with it.

    If you are doing outdoor and it is going to be hot – unbuttoned.  If you are having a shorter train and a vintage feel (an assumption I’m making since you described lace) then unbuttoned would look fine, especially if he is wearing a vest, that could be buttoned underneath.

    Formal is a relative term anymore.  It used to be determined by the length of your train, but I think it has more to do with the overall feel and look of the wedding now that dresses have changed so much from years past.

    You can do either but suit etiquette would be top buttoned on a two button suit or top, middle or just middle on a 3 buttton however a wedding us also one of the rare occassions it is accepted that a man may button all buttons on a jacket. I agree though if it is hot and casual unbuttoned is OK…its your wedding and see which looks best on him for all the pictures.
