"I am getting married in a civil ceremony tomorrow and wanted some wardrobe advice. As this is going to be a quick, informal affair, I'm planning on wearing a blazer and trousers. I have a very nice dark brown jacket with a windowpane check. I was thinking of wearing khaki trousers and a light brown patterned tie with a white dress shirt. The pants and shirt seem a little pedestrian...should I go for a darker trouser or dress shirt?"
Congratulations! You don't have time to do anything complicated but if you'd like to look a bit more dressed consider a pair of tan gabardine trousers instead of the khakis. You should be able to get them tailored on the spot if you explain why you need them. In addition, either put a white pocket square in your jacket pocket or stop for a white carnation tomorrow morning.
