Q. When the invitation for an evening wedding says ‘semi-formal’, is black an appropriate color to wear? Also, are men expected to wear ties in 100 degree heat?
A. Black can be worn at a semi-formal evening wedding. Men usually wear suits to a semi-formal evening wedding but, depending on the custom in your area of the country where it is unbearably hot, that attire could be modified. You might ask the couple what a man is expected to wear.
