Attire question for 4PM ceremony

Our wedding will be from 4-10pm (had to push the start time up since the sun goes down earlier in December). I'll be wearing a long strapless dress and then bridesmaids will be in long burgundy dresses. The ceremony and reception are both inside.

Since the wedding starts in the late afternoon, would it be ok if my FH and the groomsmen wore tuxes? It won't be a black tie affair by any means though! I'm guessing most people will wear cocktail attire Smiley smile I'll attach another pic of the venue!

    I have no advice, but I don't see why it wouldn't be okay! I just wanted to comment on how beautiful your venue is Smiley smile

    I think you wear what you want. In essence, it IS an evening wedding since the sun will be down for most of the party. It's a lovely venue by the way.

    Definitely okay for GM's to wear tuxes. I'm getting married as 4 as well and am hoping for semi formal attire. All of the men in the wedding party will be in tuxes.

    Technically 4 PM is too early for a tuxedo, but no one is going to fault you for it. Wear what you both love!

    As long as you're not expecting your guests to wear tuxedoes I think it's fine. It's not like it's a morning wedding, plus I have been to weddings where the BP is dressed more formally than the guests and never thought it was weird.

    If that is what he wants to wear, I say go for it!

    Really cool venue! Agreed, have them where what you want. It will feel like an evening wedding pretty quickly and maybe just be clear on the invites about guest attire, in case anyone assumes it's black tie.

    Date twin! I'd say tuxes are fine- our ceremony is starting at 4:30 and we're doing tuxes.

    Hel-lo, date--and almost time--twin! I too am doing a strapless gown with my maids in long burgundy dresses. 4 pm essentially *is* sundown, so no etiquette faux pas with tuxes. My guys will be in tuxes as well!

    Beautiful venue, and congrats!
