What do I wear to a formal wedding?

We recommend a dark suit or tux for the men and formal evening wear (floor length dresses or evening pant suits) for the women. Black Tie usually indicates an evening affair where the men where tuxedos and the women wear formal gowns of any length. This is the most formal of all wedding dress codes.
