What Should Men Wear when Attending a Wedding?
So, you got a message saying that you are cordially invited to the wedding of a friend or relative of yours. But you got a big problem, you can’t decide what to wear. You find yourself lost in a vast collection of outfit choices.
Even when you have some ideas or some outfit choices that would look trendy and appropriate with the current weather, it’s still hard to decide as to which one is the best.
First off, a wedding is a couple’s milestone, so you don’t want to take the spotlight. Let’s give it to the groom and bride. It’s a must to stay lowkey while maintaining your unique fashion statement. Putting on an attitude of honor and respect is your most vital job as a guest. Show that you’re grateful to have been part of their big day.
The following are some casual outfit ideas to wear to a wedding as a guest:
↓ 25. Rustic Country
Channel your inner cowboy spirit!
Khaki pants, a long-sleeved shirt, with a vest or suspenders are what make up this rustic country look. Consider choosing the appropriate color of the shirt like blue, white or black, and make sure that the hue of the vest or suspender will not ruin the totality of the style.
Black or brown leather shoes, and a classic wristwatch could complete this look.
↓ 24. Vintage
Bring back the old times!
How to look decent while being casual? It’s simple! Wear vintage.
Denim jackets, green shirts, green chucks, shades, and body bags… it has never been a bad idea to show up at a wedding wearing these.
Aside from the fact that they are “instagrammable,” these outfits would give the people some throwback vibes from the 90s.
↓ 23. The Great Gatsby
Have you seen that movie yet?
The style of The Great Gatsby is wry, elegant, sophisticated, having metaphors, figurative imagery, and poetic language to show some sense of nostalgia and loss, but in a nutshell, an elegant man in a suit, walking with a cane.
A grey, light blue suit or a medium brown one. A matching vest, pants, and two-tone brogue shoes will do.
↓ 22. Biker/Rock-and-roll
This look can be achieved by wearing a combination of a plump leather jacket or vest, leather boots, black or grey denim jeans, and a black shirt with some bizarre prints preferably.
Accessorize to stand out! Grab some iconic necklaces and bracelets, but make sure that they are in a dark color. Remember that you are trying to look like the cool guy here.
↓ 21. Romantic Pink
Don’t be ashamed to show the soft side of you.
Being the sweet side of the color red. It represents friendship, affection, harmony, inner peace, and approachability. And these are exactly the values you want to show as a wedding guest.
Try to wear an all-pink outfit. It can be a combination of a white shirt and a pink coat, matched with pink trousers. A white turtleneck and a suit is also an option if you like creating contrasts. Then you can wear either black or brown leather shoes. And complete the look with a timeless watch.
↓ 20. Suit up!
Have the right fit of the suit, and you know you have the right one if you can comfortably cross your arms without tearing the fabric across your back. For the pants, don’t get something that is too loose or snug because you would not look so good wearing such.
There are three types of suit lapels (folded flaps of cloth on the front of a jacket or coat): notched, peak and shawl. Pick the best one for you. I suggest you wear a two-button one because it looks more elegant and stylish.
For the vents (the vertical slit that extends upward from the bottom hem on the backside of the suit itself), there are single, double, and no vent suits.
In choosing the fabric and the color, consider matching them with your skin tone and with the season. For summer and spring, it’s best to have linen suits with bright colors, and for winter or fall, wool with dark and navy tones are in. The tie color should blend well with the palette of the suit.
To make the style less formal, unbutton the coat, remove the pocket square if you want, throw the tie and I would recommend a simple plain T-shirt as an undershirt, be it a crew neck or a V-neck one, instead of dress shirts. Just make sure that it is no longer than the coat in length. Belts are also optional if you’re trying to look casual for the event. Complete the look with the best shoes you got and you’re good to go!
↓ 19. Beach Wedding
Who amongst us didn’t even once dream of being wed under the blazing heat of the sun, with the overwhelming view of the beach? Well, even for attendees, it is a dream come true to witness such a wonderful ceremony.
A simple combination of a white cotton or linen shirt, matched with topsider shorts (preferably of the same color as that of the shirt) and some sandals or slippers makes up this look. You can also wear rubber shoes if you want, it doesn’t matter because you’ll take it off, anyway. It is a good idea to be barefooted to leave some footprints on the sand.
