I'm not sure if there is any halachic basis for any of this, but I've seen at most weddings the chasan just wears the kitul over the suit jacket. At a few weddings though, particularly in Israel, many chasanim wear the kitul underneath their jacket. Any reason for this?


The Lev Ita and Yismach Lev brings down the one should wear something ontop of kittel.

A friend of mine was told by his rebbe at Chofetz Chaim yeshiva in Queens that it's a personal Yom Kippur -- hence, wear the kittel, but not out in the open.
