What to Wear to a Wedding: The Ultimate Guide to Wedding Dress Codes
Not sure what to wear to a wedding? Check out this guide with suggestions for every season, dress code, and color scheme.
Black Tie Wedding Attire
Men will wear tuxedos with formal ties and black patent leather shoes, women will wear floor-length formal wedding guest dresses.
Semiformal Wedding Attire
This is just a simple way to say go for something middle of the road. Men should wear a suit and tie. Women should wear a lovely dress, but not a ballgown.
Cocktail Wedding Attire
Men should wear a suit, but feel free to be a little less formal with colorful accessories. Women should wear a nice cocktail dress. If a city wedding in a metropolitan area, a little black dress may be appropriate.
Beach-formal Wedding Attire
A lightweight suit with an open jacket and collar will suffice for men, especially in hot and humid climates. Wear something comfortable, breezy, and chiffon will likely do the trick for the ladies.
Festive Wedding Attire
Festive attire is virtually the same as cocktail attire. This is a fun way for couples to give their guests a license to have a little fun with their outfit choices.
Casual Wedding Attire
When it comes to weddings, “casual” never actually means casual. Don’t show up in jeans to someone’s wedding, please.
