How To Suit Up For A Wedding

The wedding season is up, and many gents are wondering how to suit up for the occasion! There are plenty of ways to crack the code and look your appropriate best for the newlyweds!

Pay attention to the invitation!

The invitation you receive to a wedding will include an indicator of what attire is appropriate for the evening. Pay attention to key words such as “black tie” or formal. Here are the most common dress codes for weddings, and how to sport them all!

The Black Tie Wedding

Black Tie Wedding

The ladies will be wearing goings, and you want to opt for a tuxedo for this occasion. Choose between a tie or a bow tie, and add a black vest to obtain the full look. The boldest gents can replace the vest with a cummerbund. For a summer wedding, you might be able to wear a black suit instead of a tuxedo. Our recommended shirt look is either a bib, or a covered placket.

The Semi Formal Wedding

While you still want to opt for a formal suit and tie at a semi formal wedding, the time of the event can be a great indicator. If the reception is set in the evening, make sure to wear dark colors, and a dark tie as well. For a daytime reception, feel free to sport some lighter colors. A normal white dress shirt with a french or american placket will suffice for this attire.

The Casual Wedding

You are welcome to, but not obligated to wear a tie for this one! Sport some dress pants or khaki’s with a light shirt and a blazer or a sport jacket, choose a casual tie or wear your collar button open!
