I'm looking to start into doing weddings and honestly it might seem like an odd thing to worry about, but it's a special day to the people there and I wouldn't want to ruin it in any way, shape, or form. So how do you dress to shoot a wedding?

I'm pretty sure this was covered recently

I think the consensus was to ask the bride.

Some wear all black.

I've worn shorts and a polo, I've worn a black suit, and everything in between. Ask the bride. That's the only universal answer.

If the bride doesn't care, dress as you'd expect a really suave guest to dress.

You just can't go wrong with a neat and professional appearance. I generally prefer all black, but any neutral colours seem to be best.

Do NOT show up in a wedding gown.
