Men today dress a lot less formal than those before. This generation considers Jeans and Sweatshirts to be formal wear. No matter what designer’s name is on them they are not appropriate at a wedding at any time. Whether you are the groom. In the wedding party or a wedding guest you want your outfit to be perfect for any photo op that comes your way.
The groom will be in a Tuxedo or formal suit, that is pretty much a given but as a guest many times men are at a loss. While it is tempting to dress in the style of the day but this is after all a wedding and your dress should reflect the solemness of the occasion. Even if the invitation says casual you can bet they do not want you showing up in cargo pants and a tee with flip flops. There is a thing known as “smart casual” these are suits that are all about comfort without giving up that classic fit or look. Here are 8 things to think about when choosing your wedding attire or other formal wear.
1. Wear a traditionally designed suit
2. Dress up rather than under dressing
3. Choose a suit
4. If at all possible do not rent
5. Keep the suit look until the real party starts after dinner
6. Do not even consider denim
7. Evening wear is appropriate only for evening weddings
8. Match the tie to the suit
Tailored suits are great and many think that to dress casual you have to forgo a great fit. That is simply not true because today designers are paying more attention to menswear and giving men a great fit. When you are a guests at a wedding you want to wear something that fits the occasion, pay attention to the dress code that is indicated on the wedding invitation. Men you can look just as dapper in a well fitted two piece suit with a smart tie as you do in a Tux.
