Dapper Wedding Guest Inspiration

Stylish gents see weddings as an opportunity to showcase their individuality, dress up and look their very best. For those dapper guys, we put together a few on-trend outfit ideas for the most common types of weddings. Here are three dashing styles for men wedding guest.

Dapper Wedding Guest

Attending a formal beach wedding? Dress to impress by wearing a summer suit, a linen shirt styled with a tie and casual oxfords. For a casual beach wedding, another dapper option is pairing a sport jacket or blazer with slacks, a crisp white shirt (tie optional) and boat shoes. When you’re shopping for options, use the season to dictate your color choices and fabrics. In spring/summer the colors that work best are pastels, light blues, reds, oranges and pink. Fabrics you should considered are: linen, cotton and seersucker. These are all perfect when dealing with sun and sand.


For a formal wedding during the day, start by selecting a dark colored suit in a mid-weight material. Wear it with a conservative shirt, bow tie and black oxfords. Wearing colors like navy, burgundy, or a brocade suit is not out of the question as long as you don’t overshadow the groom.

If your invitation says “Black Tie” be prepare to wear a tux, since this wedding dress code usually means the wedding is very formal and during the evening.

What should you wear? A tuxedo, black bow tie, cummerbund and black cap toe oxfords. For debonair guests,  we love this lavish silk-jacquard tuxedo jacket by Brioni from Mr Porter.

Even though the invitation says casual, you might want to dress in business casual instead to be on the safe side. Pair a sport coat with a button-down shirt, slacks and brogues.
