As a wedding guest, your only responsibility is to arrive looking your best. But, deciding what to wear isn’t always easy — you need to consider everything from the season to the vibe of the wedding.
Here, we’ve put together a guy’s guide to men’s wedding guest fashion outlining what you can wear to the next wedding you attend, no matter whar time of year…
What to wear to a spring wedding
Spring is the most unpredictable of seasons, so it’s best to be prepared for all eventualities. Layering can offer the best solution for this: a three-piece suit in a light grey or blue will keep you warm, while giving a casual and spring-appropriate vibe.
You can also choose your shoes to reflect the fact winter’s over and summer is on its way. A pair of loafers, such as these from Harrys of London, will work very well.
What to wear to a summer wedding
Summer weddings give you the most freedom when choosing what to wear. You could go with a short-sleeved shirt or wear your shoes with no socks.
Wearing breathable materials will prevent you from overheating during the day. We recommend going for a light grey or beige linen suit to pair with a floral shirt and some brown brogues or loafers.
What to wear to an autumn winter
Autumn is a transitional season, so think light fabrics in a darker colour palette. A burgundy, navy, or dark grey suit, like the designer styles at Pritchards, can work incredibly well, and look great with dark brown shoes.
A patterned shirt in a complementary colour will add a stylish flair. And, if it’s cold, wearing a three-piece suit will give you some extra warmth.
What to wear to a winter wedding
In winter, the British weather has a mind of its own: it can rain, snow, and even hail at a moment’s notice. So, you’ll want to pick out an outfit that’s versatile enough for this.
Wool and tweed suits make great choices for winter weddings, as they look put-together, but are warm and comfortable too. Wear with a white shirt and a pair of brogue boots.
