Wedding Guest Attire Inspiration

Men's Guide to Wedding Guest Attire

Wedding Guest Attire:

With wedding season only a few months away, it’s time to start planning! You’ll be seeing lots of family and friends at this year’s celebratory events. Once the RSVP has been returned, the next question is, “what to wear?” Weddings are a time to show off your good style, while not going overboard to take away from the bride and groom. The season, location, venue, and dress code will help narrow down choices exponentially. Here are five of the most popular wedding types and what men should wear as wedding guests.


Whether headed to a tropical destination wedding in Tulum, a Florida Keys resort, or a coastal New England ceremony, beach weddings are one of the most popular choices for brides and grooms. We get it! Warmth, a high percentage of good weather, bright colors, fun dresses, did we mention warmth? While we don’t recommend the short and sandal combo for the groom, beach weddings can offer an opportunity for working in some fun and trendy styles for not only the bridal party but also the guests! For the male guests, we recommend this combination – cream linen suit, festive floral shirt, essential pocket square, stylish loafers with no-show socks.


Rustic weddings share a large range of styles, trends, and locations. Typical rustic weddings go for the natural tones and textures. Wood, greenery, outdoor, barns, parks, campgrounds, you name it! While it’s up to the bride and groom to determine their own level of rustic-ness, a guest can easily find some middle ground to show off a little style. We recommend this combination – brown tweed or textured jacket, light gray chambray shirt, mustard yellow necktie, tan trousers, your most stylish brogue boots.


Black Tie:
The most formal weddings situated on an estate, ballroom, country club, or even a castle can only be met with one style of dress, black tie. The most simple, yet prestigious, of ensembles, the black tie dress code is a cinch for the male guests. Bust out (and dry clean) the tuxedo that’s been hanging in the closet and make sure it’s ready for the big event. A self-tied bow tie is a must for events like this. Google search a quick “how to tie a bow tie”, or just click here. We recommend this combination – black tuxedo, white tuxedo shirt, black self-tied bow tie, white pocket square, black formal shoes.


When we hear modern we think industrial spaces, geometric shapes, neon lights, copper tones, hipster vibes, either really bold colors or really minimal. Confused? Check out our Modern Wedding Pinterest board to get a better idea. Modern weddings can often be sleek, shiny, and nontraditional. So what’s a guest to wear? For the male modern wedding guest, a hip look is a must. We recommend this combination – red velvet jacket, white button up shirt (skip the tie), black skinny suit pants, and black loafers.


A desert wedding doesn’t only have to take place in a desert, though they often do. Desert inspired weddings use colors and textures found in the Southwest region of the US. What’s so special about this area? The vast landscape is met with incredible plants, formations, and colors. It’s hard to not be inspired. Whether you’re heading to Joshua Tree or not, a desert wedding theme offers many styling options for the guests. A slightly more casual vibe, some may even deem it boho, a male guest can accessorize in the right ways and keep his look simple. We recommend this combination – light gray chinos, white cotton shirt, suspenders, bolo tie, and brown Chelsea boots.
