Is it only British guys who wear ties to such events?

I'm British myself and it seems to me that it's only us guys that actually wear ties to things like weddings, funerals and even work. I have to wear a tie for work, it's part of my dress code, but even then I see lots of guys here in England who wear ties to work. I went to both a wedding and a funeral recently and there were people who came from Canada, US, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland and and a few other countries. Although all the guys were in suits (blazer and trousers) none of them wore ties. I thought it was a bit informal, especially for a wedding.

Are ties overrated? Are the British over the top when it comes to events such as the above?

  • I am an American woman. My brother and boyfriend wear ties all the time, but I think other nations in general are less formal than the British. Granted, we are not too many generations away from our English heritage and my mother raised us in a more British way, and we have always been a little odd growing up. Thankful for it.
