Most modern couples – and their guests – are far more relaxed when it comes to dress codes. Don’t expect guests to stick strictly to these guidelines. For example, you can’t demand a male guest wears a dark-coloured pocket square just because you’re holding a wedding with a cocktail dress code!
White tie, also known as full evening dress, is the most formal dress code and is suited to an evening wedding beginning after 6pm. Men should wear patent shoes, trousers with a stripe of satin on either side, a double breasted evening tailcoat with a white shirt, a white waistcoat, and white bow tie.
Hitting the gym. Wearing your ring during cardio activities won’t do it any harm, but it’s the weight lifting that can take a toll. The pressure of the weight’s bars (or really, any amount of strong pressure) that’s applied to your band might bend it, which is especially bad for a pavé band because the smaller stones can fall right out of their setting. As for contact sports, definitely take off the ring, or risk a serious injury thanks to ring avulsion.
