Wedding season is here which means whether it’s a church service, an informal affair, or you’re jetting off to sunnier lands for the big ‘I do’, we’ve got exactly what you need to look the part. From lightweight suits fit for sandy beaches to 3-piece-suits for traditional functions and sleek tailoring for modern events, here’s our run-down of what to wear to a wedding now.
What to wear to a beach wedding
Travelling somewhere a little more exotic than the local church? With sun, sea and a wedding on the horizon, reflect the destination in your wardrobe with a lighter and more casual approach. Look the part in lighter suits or summer separates or opt for a suit fit for sunny-weather weddings with pastel tones and softer construction – perfect for alfresco celebrations. Lightweight suits or chinos and a smart blazer are a great bet and will keep you looking smart and comfortable in the heat. Linen-look suits and cotton shirts are also great options and will help you keep your cool. Pair your neutrals with navy, slip on some loafers and unbutton the collar to celebrate the big day in style.
What to wear to a church wedding
Think along the traditional lines for weddings being done by the book. A heritage inspired check 3-piece suit is a smart bet, without being stuffy. Look sharp in double breasted suits for a traditional way to do wedding dressing and choose co-ordinated three-piece tailoring and embrace classic, timeless style for the big day. When it comes to the rest, formal leather brogues, crisp white shirts and smart waistcoats will make sure you look your best when the wedding bells chime.
What to wear to a relaxed wedding
Heading to a low-key wedding? Move away from traditional morning dress and reach for a suit in lighter shades, fusing stylish design with impeccable craftsmanship for a cool and current wedding-day outfit. For a modern approach to suiting opt for subtle prints, tasteful two-pieces and clean lines. Contemporary colours and relaxed tailoring are perfect for a less-stuffy do and will ensure you don’t look too overdressed for a less formal event. Team grey, blue and even pink tailoring with a tonal shirt for a look that’s relaxed with a little twist.
