Formal Wedding Waldorf Astoria

A formal wedding is not to confused with “Black Tie Required”.

It’s more of a “Black Tie Optional” kind of event. Formal is a small step down from tuxedo required, but the event is formal enough to wear the proper clothing.

A long dress or formal cocktail dress would be suitable for the ladies.

The gentlemen would wear a tuxedo or formal dark suit. A white shirt and tie would be the finishing touch.
