Section: Dressing for the Occasion - Blog
Being invited to a wedding is a big deal. Since it is a special day for two individuals as well as their respective families, you need to dress smartly to show respect yet in a manner that does not overshadow the bridegroom. Here's how to crack the code on wedding attire for male guests whether the invitation specifies a dress code or not.
Male wedding guests should contribute – in some manner – to the occasion of happiness and love represented by weddings. Your attire should be smart and conform to the guidelines specified by the host or hostess. The main purpose of your attendance is not to draw attention away from the bridegroom onto yourself, but rather to witness an important event in the history of two families.
Typically, wedding invitations state the desired dress code for guests. It will traditionally fall between black tie and business casual. Therefore, if you attend a wedding in a dark tailor made men's suit, white shirt, and a muted tie with highly polished dress shoes, you are perfectly dressed for the occasion.
If the invitation does not mention the desired dress code, a number of clues could help you figure it out.
If a fortune has been spent on crafting the invitation, it is probably worthwhile to dress up to portray yourself as a considerate guest.
A low key wedding where the couple asks for guests to dress casually should be heeded with prudence and caution. Bear in mind, no two people's notions of what constitutes casual wear is the same. Therefore, always carry an upscale casual outfit in your car or travel kit, to rescue you in case you happen to be underdressed.
