As a native English (well, New Zealand and Australian) speaker,
ceremonial sounds really wrong.  It brings up images of politicians in
weird native costumes, and judges in robes and wigs.  The term we'd
use is "formal" - it covers nice suits, tuxedos, ball gowns, cocktail
dresses etc. as well as wedding attire.  As opposed to "casual", which
is day to day wear.

for some local examples of the shops I'm thinking of.
