    is it too much?

    Dear teacher,
    Is it correct to use "too much" in this sentence?
    "Do you think that wearing a suit at my niece's marriage is too much?"

    I mean if it's too formal.
    Thank you very much.

    Re: is it too much?

    If you are asking whether the "too much" fits, it does. Very colloquial, but a good sentence.

    Re: is it too much?

    Should I have said "wedding"?
    The ceremony is the "wedding" and the "marriage" is the relation between the couple, right?
    Thank you very much.

    Re: is it too much?

    Yes, that's even better. And your distinction is correct.

    "Marriage" is far less common, but still not wrong.
