I'm going to my friends wedding and I hate dressing formal. I'm not going to wear a tux and prefer not to wear a tie either? Can I still look appropriate without a tie? The invitation says dress\casual is expected. Thoughts?

If it's an evening wedding, definitely a tie and jacket.

Otherwise, dark pants and a nice crisp long-sleeved shirt.

Personally, my guy would be wearing a tie. I'd never let him go without one...unless it was a beach wedding or something of that nature.

Casual, it says so on the invite. Slacks and a sport coat would be fine. Or leave the sport coat at home and just have a nice button down shirt. Don't worry about the tie, nobody is going to be paying attention to you.

Wear the tie for the ceremony, you can take it off for the reception.

The wedding is at 3:30 in a place that will be warm all day and night. I'm planning on wearing slacks but how about a short sleeve button up shirt with no tie. To me it seems short sleeves looks better than long sleeves when going without a tie. And no I won't be doing short sleeve with a tie, I'm not going to look like a member of geek squad.

Others may have their own opinion but since you are asking and I'm answering I'm going to give you permission to do that. I don't believe anyone should be uncomfortable or fret about their clothing regardless of the occasion. You aren't in the wedding party, just a guest, so like I said before...nobody is going to be paying attention to you. As long as you are neat and clean and tidy wear what you think will look good one you and lets you be comfortable enough to enjoy the wedding.

Pretty sure some of my relatives wore polo shirts and t-shirts to my wedding, it didn't' change the wedding. I'm fairly free-wheeling with personal styles and don't even see the value in "traditional" wear for everyone. Where is the fun in that? We are all individuals.
