The White Tie.
This dress code is fairly uncommon these days, unless you are a diplomat or a politician. ‘White tie’ means that the most grand and formal occasions guests will attend. Men should wear a tail dress coat, matching trousers with two satin or braid stripes, a stiff-front white piqué wing-collared shirt, a white bow tie, white or gray gloves, and black patent displays. Women should wear a floor-length dress with long evening gloves. Guests will expect a highly formalized experience that follows a strict protocol, starting with butlers or other waiting staff serving cocktails.
Dinner can include as many as 13 courses, which are also served by workers. Typically, the recommended seating layout alternates between males and females, with the host and hostess sitting at opposite ends of the table. This is the location for the most luxurious cuisine from oyster, lobster and other gourmet seafood starters to traditional French main courses such as ‘Beef Bourguignon.’ Lavish desserts need to follow. Brandy and liqueurs will finish the meal.
The Black tie.
‘Black tie’ often means an event that is highly formal. A tuxedo and black bow tie with shirt studs and cufflinks should be worn by men. Women may either wear a floor-length dress, a cocktail dress that is incredibly casual, or trendy separates. This dress code is ideal for a very momentous occasion to celebrate, such as a milestone wedding anniversary or special holiday, with a cocktail or dinner party.
Drive the boat out for a drinks party with a full bar selling cocktails, sparkling wines and beer followed by a variety of exotic canapés ‘around the world’ including beef carpaccio, smoked salmon and blinis of caviar, spring rolls, spinach roulade and samosas.
The menu should be as classy for a special dinner as the dress of your guests. Why not think of a theme influenced by Italy? Serve antipasto hors d’oeuvres, including cured meats, sundried tomatoes and artichoke hearts, accompanied by ravioli or lasagne in a classic main course.
A Creative black tie.
Basically , this means ‘a black tie with a little attitude’. It means the event is going to be formal but somewhat irreverent, and a lot of fun. If they want to, men should feel free to wear a tuxedo with a black shirt rather than white. It is likely that bow ties are black or colored. Women are also encouraged to shake things up a bit with a daring cocktail dress and perhaps some funky jewelry.
