What should the guys wear?

Just as us girls plan, dream, and analyze what type of dress we should wear, equal consideration should be given to the guys.

I am frequently asked about attire 'requirements' for the groom and his men and quite honestly this is where the 'whatever you want' line doesn't really apply. So, I've broken it down to what is most appropriate and you can use or toss the advice as you wish.

Guide to the Guys Wedding Attire:

DESTINATION WEDDINGS:

If the bride is wearing chiffon, beach attire, or a semi-formal gown, then the guys wear any of the following options:

  • Shirt, tie (Windsor or bow are both fine), vest, pants
  • Shirt, vest pants
  • Shirt, tie, pants
  • Suit

SEMI-FORMAL:

If the wedding is taking place in a barn, on a farm, or in a park and the bride is wearing a short dress, a dress that is simple and classic, or a dress that has only slight embellishments, then the guys wear any of the following options:

  • Shirt, tie (Windsor or bow are both fine), vest, pants
  • Suit

FORMAL:

The bride typically wears a dress that is reflective of her personal style, the wedding theme, etc. Whether she dons something classic or formal, guys want to follow her lead and wear:

  • Suit
  • Tuxedo
