Kilts with tux jackets? I don’t know. But I will say this. We womenfolk wear uncomfortable and weather-inappropriate clothing all the time to look nice. I think your men can do it for a day. Besides, if your betrothed has his heart set on it I think you should let him. Not a lot of guys have strong opinions on wedding stuff so if he does it must be pretty important, even if only for the aesthetic of it.

Heat is a concern, but if it’s just outside for ceremony and photos, I think he and the Groomsmen should be fine. Make sure you have water bottles on hand though in case it’s very hot and you spend a lot of time doing photos. Also, maybe your Fiance and Groomsmen can take off their jackets during the reception?

Most men take off their jackets after the ceremony and the first part of the reception anyway, so I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

An alternative to tuxes would be for the men to wear linen jackets and pants. Linen is much cooler but the downside is that it wrinkles easily.The guys would not be able to sit down until after the ceremony and picture taking. There are some wrinkle resistant linens out there.


They could wear off white jackets and black pants and still get the Bogart look.
