How to Style for the Wedding

Updated: Dec 28, 2019

Have you gotten your suit ready? How are you folding your pocket square? Are you getting a boutonniere? Here are styling tips for the big day, for both the groom and the guests.


Gauge the formality of the event before picking out a suit. If you're attending something along the lines of a church wedding and an indoor reception, a two-piece suit with a single breasted jacket in charcoal gray or navy would do the job well. To add more formality and style, look into picking up a double breasted jacket.

For garden, beach, and any other outdoor or casual set-ups, you can get away with lighter colors like cream and grey, and more relaxed materials such as linen and seersucker.

There are a lot of things to look at for your suit. We recommend consulting with a tailor. You can also read our guide to wedding suits to get a better idea on how to get started.
