From destination weddings to traditional church weddings, there is no longer one guest outfit to suit all. Styles and locations for weddings have diversified so much in the last few years, it can be hard to find the right clothes to wear! However, there’s no need to worry, because we’re here to help! Take a look at our handy guide to different styles of weddings and what to wear as a male guest!
4 Weddings and What to Wear: Outfits for Male Guests
The Country Wedding
Set in a big, beautiful manor in the middle of nowhere, the country wedding is a little bit more relaxed than a church wedding. Go for a preppy look where your suit doesn’t necessarily have to match. Go for tweeds and checks in browns, greys and blues, and even add a pair of braces too. For your feet, pop a pair of brown brogues or desert boots. For more inspiration, take a look on Pinterest.
The Destination Wedding
If you’re off on holiday for the wedding, then lucky you! However, the biggest predicament is your outfit. Getting married on a beach in the heat and a morning suit doesn’t quite work together, so you may have to ditch your old suit.
The only thing that you can wear is linen. The best thing about linen is that you can style it smart or casual, and you can wear it again in a different setting. A coloured linen three piece will set you out from the crowd, whereas a cream linen jacket and trouser pairing will mean that you fit in perfectly. Pair with leather sandals and a smart pair of sunglasses and you’ll be wearing the most enviable outfit there.
The Traditional Wedding
For the traditional church wedding, then only the smartest of formal suits will do. Stick to suits of monochrome, blues and greys, with a dash of colour in your pocket square, and paired with a gorgeous pair of brogues like these from Crockett and Jones, buffed to perfection. To add extra elegance, learn how to tie your tie in a fancy way, like the Eldredge or the Trinity knot.
The City Wedding
The city wedding is bound to be populated by the coolest of guests. Wear a classic tuxedo or a slightly more low-key woollen suit for the upmost stylish look. For the modern man, choose a suit in dark purple or aubergine hues, topped off with a bowtie and silver cufflinks. If you’d rather not go for a full coloured suit, instead use a pocket square to inject some bold colour into your look.
