I have to go to a damn wedding this weekend so I need a tie. Few years ago I purged my tie collection, donated around 50 to Goodwill and kept just a couple for this kind of event. I'm the furthest from liking to wear one and avoid it if at all possible. Well, now that I need one for my wifes hoidy-toidy friend I can't for the life of me find the ones I kept๐Ÿ˜ก
Now I gotta go buy one, Fukin-A๐Ÿ˜ค
.
Oh, and I'm pissed I gotta wear a gawd damn monkey suit for an outside wedding during a fricken heatwave ๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿฅต

Don't go, you have to do your hair or something.

How bad are the consequences if you just don't do it? Serious question on this. What will the penance with the wife be?

Might be worth it.
Well....just read my tagline and that should answer your question. I've given her enough grief about the whole thing nonetheless, however, I do like her plenty to be respectful๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‡

I feel your pain Ziggy. I hate suits and ties. I will do just about anything to not have to wear one. I canโ€™t tell you how many times I am the only one in an aloha shirt.

Well Zig. You need to look on the bright side of things here.
You were going to see the start of a new life union.

I found myself in a similar situation today, only I didnโ€™t purge my tie collection, I donโ€™t have any, lol.
But!
I had to wear pants, shoes, and get a fuckin haircut/beard delete, and, I wasnโ€™t going to a wedding.๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Lmao.
We BMW dealers came to Hawaii annually for meetings. Didn't take me long to say F it, I ain't wearing a suit, we're in Hawaii for Gods sake. So I went in shorts and a pollo shirt one day and man did I get a lot of eyeballs. Next day a handful of guys came in shorts, then more and more as each day progressed. By time I sold the dealership and quit that biz I'd guess at least 60% of the guys came into those meetings super casual. Trend setter I am...lol๐Ÿ˜„

This is her friends second. First one in her early twenties lasted a year, maybe. She's now 55+. It kinda caught all her friends off guard since any relationship she's had she hasn't been exactly faithful๐Ÿ™„
She had been in a long distance one for a few years and now suddenly she's marrying a neighbor. I hope it's a life union but I won't hold my breath....she is a very good looking girl so she is hit on a lot. We shall see.

55 years old, 2nd try at the alter, and hot weather..

All specifics lead to casual no tie. Wear what you feel comfy in. Sans flip flops.

Youโ€™re welcome to come along . Your 250 is dialed in๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‚
For number 3 the wife and I had just bought a house. We were moving.๐Ÿ–•

I'm not talking about not going or something strange, just a very nice dress shirt, jacket, and all but no tie.

Again serious question as I have been in this type of situation. My thought are that unless I will be up in front of everyone, I don't need the tie.

The invite specifically addressed dress code expected, that's this girls style. The one(and only) time we had her with us in Havasu she spent over two hours getting dolled up, including 6" heels, to go to the sandy ground of the Turtle Bar. Even though we warned her not to she insisted.

I can loan you one. I saved four ties also. But I know where they are!
๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ŠGot a new shirt and tie for $15 at Kohls last night, normal price $50. Neck size smaller by 1"+ from before my weight-loss ๐Ÿ˜ณ...lol, all my old shirts looked and felt like parachutes so I guess misplacing the ties was meant to be.๐Ÿ˜

This reminds me of my dad. He hates pants and suits. He prefers Hawaiian shirts at weddings and even wore โ€œniceโ€ shorts once. All my cousins weddings were white/black tie weddings. They begged him to dress up, and he fought it all the way. The last cousin who got married never asked him or bothered him on what he was wearing- he went out and brought a suit for and happily wore it. Go figure haha.

Just tie and wear a noose with a sign on your back saying something about in memory of XXXX (the grooms name).
Hey you would meet the specific dress code.......
