Wedding Guest Outfits: With Winters being the season of weddings, everyone seems to be busy prepping for the celebrations. We are here to help you select the best wedding outfit for you to wear. In the last post, we talked about some latest style suits combinations for men. Men are usually worried about what to wear to wedding events and how to style the suit as a guest at a wedding in the winter season. Therefore we bring you some super cool ideas and dapper styles.
This is one event where men dress up the best but one thing to make sure is to keep yourself warm in winters, without compromising on the style game. For a man, it is a long struggle between two things. One is wanting to look good and the other is wanting to express themselves through their dressing style. A wedding in the winter season itself is a challenge. Here we share some images for the casual look, the formal look and the contemporary look.
What Wedding Outfit To Pick?
Before we get started, here are some do’s and don’ts that you should keep in mind:
- For a suit pant and jacket with the best fit. Sagging look ends up being a turn-off.
- Accessorize your look with pocket squares, bow ties, jacket chains and watches.
- For a different and unique look, go for colours that are not commonly worn. For example blue, burgundy and tan.
- Make sure your shoes go well with your look. The loafer trend seems to be a great one and they look excellent with suits.
- Find out the exact theme of the wedding before picking out your outfit. If the theme is casual, you can go for a business casual style blazer.
- Add colours to your look by picking out the best, vibrant ties and pocket squares.
- Have fun picking out the right choice for yourself and good luck with it. Do not wear anything that doesn’t suit you or something that you are not comfortable in. Give your first priority to comfort and then consider the rest of the things.

A blazer would be appropriate. Do wear cufflinks as well as they give a really stylish look. Accessories are a must. Also, make sure that your shoes go well with the dress as shoes compliment the entire look.
↓ 18. Contemporary Style
This is the only look that is most preferred by the males at the wedding. The contemporary look is not just elegant but it also describes one’s personality. Blue, navy and black are great options for the suit. You can choose the shirt colour according to it and a tie of your choice. Other than the suit people keep an eye over the shoes so choose a classy pair of leather shoes.
↓ 18. Winter Look With Sweaters
Dressing up for weddings becomes a little tricky if you live in a colder climate. You are required to choose between comfort and style but here is how to get both at once. Wear your sweater with a formal suit for a hot yet comfortable look. Here are two options, the first being a plain turtle neck and the other being the classic sweater style in a plaid print.
↓ 17. White Suit
Ditch your traditional black look by going for a different colour. If the invite requires you to be dressed in white, here is an outfit you could consider. This monochrome look requires you to be dressed in a formal white shirt and suit jacket over a black pant. The black bowtie and the boutonnière look like the perfect pieces of accessory. The boutonnière is a floral decoration worn on the suits. It is commonly worn by guys on Prom nights and wedding events. If you are the groom’s best man, dressing up in white can help make the groom stand out in his coloured formal suit.

If this burgundy suit jacket does not make you want to hit the stores, we don’t know what will. You can wear an old white shirt over a black pant with this burgundy blazer for an all-new look.

If black and grey look so well on their own, why not put the two together for the ultimate classy combination. Take a look at this super dapper and cool look that has been created with a grey jacket and a round-neck black shirt. Here is how to do a comfortable and semi-casual look for a wedding. The black pocket square is the perfect replacement for a tie or a bow.
↓ 14. Tan Accessories
Blue and white is a great combination for men when it comes to suits. If you want to take a shift from the classic black suit, blue seems like a great alternative. When it comes to dressing up for weddings, it is important to find the right accessories for your look. One colour that goes well with almost every outfit is tan and we love how these tan accessories go with this white and blue outfit. Put together a tan belt, formal shoes and your favourite watch for the perfect wedding guest look.
↓ 13. Indo-Western
The South Asian fashion is famous for its uniqueness and how well they incorporate Western fashion with Eastern. This Indo-Western fusion style Suit has a very different look to it with a round hem. The gold detailing looks great with the dark blue pantsuit. The maroon pocket square is the perfect accessory to go with it. Look unique at the next wedding with an Indo-Western suit like this one, replacing the common Western suit.
↓ 12. Celebrity Style
Here is a celebrity inspired look featuring Bollywood’s favourite chocolate boy Kartik Aryan. His choice for a blue-grey plaid suit was a great one, especially when paired with a striped red tie. The white pocket square matches his shirt and the stripes of his tie. The sleek gelled back hair is the kind of hairstyle most appropriate for a formal wedding look.
↓ 11. Classic Black
Instead of going for the traditional classic look, why not ditch the suit jacket for a more contemporary style? A well-fitted pant and shirt can look just as well as a suit. However, this look can only be sported if you do not live in harsher climates or if the wedding is indoors. We love this all-black look, however, if you look closely you will realize that the black shirt has been paired with a grey-black coloured pant which prevents the combination from looking weird. The black loafer shoes are helping make the look super classy. If you want to go comfortably in casual attire, and want to match with your partner, this all-black style looks like a great option.
↓ 10. Suspenders
If you are looking for a form of accessory that could help take your outfit up a notch, suspenders are just what you need. If you are looking for the best kind of look for a wedding to attend, this is definitely it. The well-fitted shirt and the use of stunning gold cufflinks with it seem to be the showstopper here. A good fitting is the first thing to look for in any formal outfit. Make sure get a tailored-fit look to look your best at any formal event. The basic black and white look has been given the perfect dapper look by going for a slim tie in red and matching suspenders. If you are planning on going for the suspenders, you could either wear them under the suit jacket or ditch the jacket completely. The suspenders add a very vintage yet youthful look to the outfit and can surely be worn by wedding guests for a formal look.
