Fitting and comfortable outfit

Pick shoes wisely
The shoes you pick can either be formal, casual, or semi-casual. What you choose should be determined by how formal or informal your wedding will be. For a formal one, you can wear oxfords and semiformal you can go for brogues.

In as much as you have the pressure to look good, be careful not to stand out for the wrong reasons. Make sure what you wear is coordinated. If you are wearing a printed suit, make sure the shirt is plain or with very little going on.
If your wedding is very formal, don’t go very casual shoes which will look odd with the whole outfit.
