Q – We’ve had to postpone our summer wedding, which is now a winter wedding, and we’re trying to embrace this change. The attire for our groomsmen now needs to change; what do you suggest we go for?
Carolyn says: "Winter weddings benefit from strong colours; oranges, greens, purples, reds, burgundies and golds are always a good choice for a wedding at this time of year. Tweed suits or dark suits with tweed waistcoats also complement these colours very well and are a good way to achieve a rich winter look.
"If you don’t want to change your colour theme winter is traditionally the wedding season of choice to wear a dinner suit, in which case you can just wear a black bow tie and incorporate your colour through your buttonhole/boutonniere."
