What the men are wearing at "posh" French weddings

Well I have never seen anything quite like it. I thought red, orange and bright blue trousers were the preserve of the English upper class country gentleman. However I was wrong the fashion seems to have caught on for chic Parisian weddings held in our local village church. Brightly coloured trousers were the most popular choice for the male guests at a recent ceremony.

 Bright orange also seemed to be a popular colour for the women.

What do you think of men in bright coloured trousers at formal weddings?

Just been playing paparazzi at another wedding photos to follow shortly.

Thank you for reading. I really love to hear from you and appreciate the time you take to leave comments.

    I love bright orange, but I found the colour, on so many men, a bit odd – unless they were part of the wedding party. I love to see how others dress, though – the women are all so chic.

    Since I have returned to Canada after my Paris time, I have convinced my husband to wear red pants and even coloured shoes but so many men at an event looks a bit odd.

    I love to see men choosing bright colors! I’ve not seen the same trend in the US. Yet!

    I’m curious to know what the bride was wearing. I thought nobody was supposed to detract from the bride but these trousers seem a bit bright. It looks rather like the men belonged to an organisation or club or such like.

    I personally dont like the look of these coloured trousers with dark jackets for a formal wedding.. It looks too casual to me..
    It would look more in keeping if their jackets were the same colour as their trousers but spare the thought!!!

    Wow, they look really great but it is surprising. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to a wedding so I have yet to see orange and red clothing on the guests, but then I’m out of the loop on that 🙂

    Not a bad look, but definitely different than the normal dark colors that I see men wearing here. I wonder when that trend will come to the States? I’m not sure that my sons would wear the bright colored pants, but, who knows, in a few years it might be all the rage here 🙂
