Attending a wedding is always an exciting affair, but figuring out what to wear can sometimes be a bit tricky, especially when considering the season and the dress code. Whether it’s a formal black-tie event or a laid-back beach celebration, it’s essential to dress appropriately to honor the couple’s special day. That’s why we’re breaking down the different wedding guest attire for men that’s tailored to each season and occasion.

Wedding Guest Attire for Men

Understanding what to wear to a wedding starts with the invitation. Consider the time and venue—morning or afternoon events tend to be less formal, while evening affairs or upscale venues call for more elegant attire.If the invitation has a dress code, like black tie or casual, it tells you what’s expected. Black tie means a tuxedo, while casual means you can dress more relaxed.

Black Tie 

For black-tie weddings, think elegant and sophisticated. Opt for a classic black tuxedo paired with a crisp white dress shirt and a black bow tie. Complete the look with polished black shoes and maybe even a sleek pocket square for an extra touch of style.

Semi-formal Wedding or Cocktail

If the wedding calls for semi-formal attire or a cocktail-style event, you can still look sharp without wearing a full-on black tie. A tailored suit in a darker shade, like navy or charcoal, paired with a dress shirt and a tie, is a great choice. Consider adding a vest or a stylish patterned tie to add some personality to your outfit.

Casual Wedding Guest Attire for Men

For more casual weddings, you have more flexibility to dress comfortably while still looking put together. A smart option would be dress pants paired with a button-down or polo shirt. You can even opt for a blazer or a sports coat for refinement.

Beach Wedding

Beach weddings are all about embracing a relaxed vibe while still looking polished. Lightweight fabrics like linen or cotton are your best friends here. Think breathable shirts paired with chinos. Loafers or boat shoes are ideal for sandy shores and don’t forget a pair of stylish sunglasses to shield your eyes from the sun.

Spring Wedding Guest Attire for Men

Spring weddings call for outfits that reflect the season’s vibrant energy. Pastel colors and lightweight fabrics are perfect for this time of year. Consider wearing a light-colored suit or mixing and matching separates like a blazer with dress pants. Floral or paisley ties can add a playful touch to your ensemble.

Summer Wedding

Summer weddings can be hot, so it’s essential to dress for comfort while still looking dapper. Opt for breathable fabrics like linen to keep cool in the heat. Light-colored suits paired with a linen shirt can help you stay stylish and comfortable throughout the festivities.

Fall Wedding Guest Attire for Men

It’s time to embrace richer tones and heavier fabrics as the weather cools. Earthy hues like burgundy, olive, or mustard are perfect for fall weddings. A wool suit or a tweed blazer paired with dress pants will keep you warm while still looking fashionable. Don’t forget to layer up with a stylish scarf or a knit tie for extra warmth.

Winter Wedding 

Winter weddings call for cozy yet stylish attire. Opt for darker colors like navy, charcoal, or black to suit the season. A wool suit or a velvet blazer paired with a cashmere sweater will keep you warm without sacrificing style. Finish your look with a classic wool overcoat and leather gloves to stay toasty during outdoor ceremonies.

No matter the season or dress code, dressing as a wedding guest is about striking the right balance between style and appropriateness. By following these simple guidelines tailored to each season and occasion, you’ll be sure to look your best while celebrating the happy couple’s special day.

  • Pick an outfit you feel confident in, a wedding is a fun and photo-filled day
  • Stick with a color palette that compliments the wedding theme. Use the invitation as your guide

The options are endless when it comes to finding the perfect wedding guest outfit. By keeping these tips in mind during your shopping experience, you’ll be sure to find outfits that are stylish, and comfortable enough to beat the heat.

They are the perfect pasty,  made of thin, high-quality silicone that sits discreetly underneath any top or dress, while still remaining in place all night. No matter how hot and sweaty the evening may get.

The Step-By-Step Guide to Creating Your Wedding Guest List

February 4, 2024 | riley
greece wedding guest list

Does thinking about your wedding guest list make you anxious? You may not know where to start or how you’re going to explain to some loved ones that they aren’t going to be invited or how you’re going to trim it down to fit within your budget. If you’ve never planned a wedding before, all of these questions can be extremely daunting. That’s where we come in. First thing first: take a breath. Working yourself up is only going to make the planning process that much more stressful. Now that you’ve cooled off a little, scroll through this step-by-step guide to creating your wedding guest list.

Step-By-Step Guide to Create Your Wedding Guest List

1. Your guest list should come before choosing your venue but after determining your wedding budget

Unfortunately, guests are expensive. Remember, you’ll need to account for food and drinks for all of your guests—and more guests means more tables, chairs, dinnerware, etc. That’s why it’s essential to determine your wedding budget first. This way, after you move to step two and make your dream guest list, it will be easier to “cut” guests based on the funds you have to spend.

2. Create your dream list

We highly recommend making a date night out of this next part. Go to dinner or pick up some pizza and wine to enjoy at home, grab your favorite notebook, and get to writing everyone you’d love to have in attendance on your special day. Because this is your first draft, it’s more than okay to dream big and include everyone in this list. We know your parents might have guests they’d like to invite, and they might be footing the bill, so we’re not saying to leave them in the dust, but do make your list first. You’ll then be able to explain to your parents that there’s X room for more guests according to your budget.

3. Establish the “rules”

Are children invited? Who gets a plus-one? These are important questions to ask. If you’re deciding on a no-children wedding, make sure your wishes are made very clear on the invitation. When it comes to the plus-one list, a general rule of thumb is to give a plus-one to couples who are engaged, married, or seriously dating (aka you’ve met their partner and your gut tells you they’re in it for the long run). On your invites, you can include language along the lines of, “We’ve saved X seat(s) in your honor” to make it clear if they do/don’t have permission to bring an additional guest.

4. Go back to your list, and get organized

Now that you’ve established your budget, made your list, consulted with your parents, and determined the rules, it’s time to get organized. Section your list into categories, such as distant relatives, close friends, distant friends, immediate family, etc. This will help you in the cutting process to see what groups you may have to leave out. For example, if your distant relatives and distant friends categories have the same amount of people and you need to eliminate one, you can think about that category as a whole instead of trying to single people out and cross them off that way.

5. Make your “cuts”

This is one of the hardest parts of putting together a guest list. It’s time to make cuts. Although it’s difficult, it’s okay to make cuts to your guest list, especially if it means not breaking the bank. If you don’t know how to begin, here are some questions to ask yourself when cutting back your list:

  • Can you imagine your wedding without this person there?
  • Would you go to dinner or drinks with this person outside of your wedding day?
  • Will it bring you joy to have this person at your wedding?
  • How long has it been since you’ve seen or spoken to this person?
  • Did this person invite you to their wedding? (Note: Reciprocal invites are not a must!)

6. Send save the dates

You’ve gotten through the hard part. That means it’s time to shop for save-the-dates. Remember the 10% rule: At least 10% of your guest list might not be able to make it to your wedding. In this case, it’s OK to have a backup list of people who you’d like to attend in their place. This is why we recommend sending out save the dates as soon as possible. It’s alright if you haven’t taken your engagement photos yet—there are plenty of invites that are beautiful without a photo.

7. Stand your ground and lean on each other

Emotions are tough. Sometimes people won’t understand your perspective, and that’s okay. Take it as affirmation that you made the right decision by leaving them off of your guest list. You don’t need that negative energy on one of the biggest days of your life. Use this time and these potentially tricky situations to grow closer to your person. Come wedding day, this will all be behind you.

Now that you’ve got your guest list sorted out, it’s time to think about your venue. First, check out our ultimate guide to finding your wedding venue. Then be sure to check out these questions that you should be asking while you tour! They’ll help you nail down the venue you’ve always dreamed of while helping you stay prepared.

One of the best parts about attending a wedding (aside from witnessing a couple’s love story, of course), is the opportunity to get dressed up. Who doesn’t love to look and feel their best and celebrate love with their friends and family? We know that finding the perfect outfit to wear should be easy in theory, but it can end up feeling like quite a daunting task. Spending all afternoon at the mall? No, thank you! That’s why we’re doing some shopping for you and rounding up some of the best places to buy wedding guest dresses online. From affordable options under $100 to sustainable pieces to dresses that will show up on your doorstep in no time, it’s time to get online shopping.

Best Places to Buy Wedding Guest Dresses Online

Lulus

If you have countless weddings to attend in the upcoming months, the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of money on dresses. That’s why we’re such big fans of Lulus. They have countless options for weddings of every kind–from beach to garden to black tie. And the best part? They’re typically under $100!

Nordstrom

There’s nothing that Nordstrom really doesn’t carry–including wedding guest dresses. With some of your favorite brands (including Reformation, ASTR the Label, and House of CB), there’s something for every occasion. They also have stores all across the United States, making trying dresses on and any necessary customer service a piece of cake.

Revolve

Revolve has taken the fashion industry by storm, and it’s not hard to see why. With dresses within every budget, you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for. In fact, you’re probably going to love it so much that you’ll do all of your shopping there from here on out. And because returns are super easy with the site, you’ve got nothing to lose.

Anthropologie

BHLDN is arguably one of the most well-known wedding brands out there, so it’s no surprise that Anthropologie–the team behind BHLDN–is one of the top places to shop for wedding guest dresses. With an array of options, picking just one dress is going to be difficult. They also happen to have great dresses that can double as a bridesmaid dress and a wedding guest dress (who doesn’t want to get more bang for their buck?).

Reformation

With so many fast fashion options out there, it’s hard to find reputable companies that are both cute and sustainable. Luckily, Reformation is making it possible for you to show up in style to weddings, all while still helping the Earth. Their goal is to source 100% of their fabrics from recycled, regenerative, or renewable materials by 2025. Not to mention they care about water impact, energy input, land use, price, and more. And the best part? You don’t have to sacrifice style.

Amazon

Sometimes you just need a dress in a pinch. We’ve all been in a situation where we take a look at our closets and realize we hate everything we own, leaving us running around like crazy trying to find an option the week of the wedding. Thanks to Prime, you can get thousands of wedding guest dresses from Amazon delivered to your front porch in a matter of a day or two. Returns are also a piece of cake if you end up not liking the dress you choose.

This will serve as a charming decor piece and a keepsake that you can treasure for years to come, just like a special message washed up on shore.

Cute and Warm Winter Wedding Guest Dresses

September 3, 2022 | riley

Are you on the hunt for a stylish winter wedding guest dress that won’t leave you shivering? We’ve rounded up over 50 of the cutest long-sleeved dresses to keep you warm at your loved one’s upcoming winter wedding. Velvet, floral, ruffles, and even jumpsuits make an appearance on our list, but which style is your favorite?

Short Winter Dresses

We know what you’re probably thinking. Wearing a short dress in the middle of the winter sounds like an awful idea. But there are places with winter highs of 75º, so a thick maxi dress isn’t necessary.

If you are attending weddings where the weather is chilly, there’s most likely going to be inside too. So why not rock a short dress?! You can pair it with a jacket or fur and tights if you are concerned about being cold or you know that you’re going to be spending any time outside. Once you hit the dance floor to warm up, feel free to ditch the coat!

Adrianna Papell Stretch Crepe Knit Tie Waist 3/4 Sleeve Midi Sheath Dress

Adrianna Papell Satin Lapel Long Sleeve Wrap Tuxedo Midi Dress

Krisa Turtleneck Ruffle Skirt Dress

Inclined to Romance Floral Embroidered Mini Dress

Cocktail Hour Chic Striped Long Sleeve Mini Dress

Midi Winter Guest Dresses

Midi dresses are the ideal style for weddings year-round. The extra length adds a layer of protection from the cold without weighing you down too much. You’ll still have the freedom to bust a move while still looking put-together. To take the winter look up a notch, pair it with booties. If not, it’ll look stunning with a pair of heels or flats.

Reformation Sigmund Dress

Norma Kamali Halter Turtle Side Slit Gown

Norma Kamali Tara Dress

Take a Glance Tiered Mock Neck Midi Dress

Bardot Aliyah Dress

Maggy London Long Sleeve Satin Twist V-Neck Knot Midi Dress

Maxi Winter Wedding Guest Dresses

Maxi dresses are ideal for winter weddings that are primarily outside. Many of these long dresses also include long sleeves, but if not, you can throw on a jacket or fur to ensure that you’re extra cozy. We love maxi dresses because they give you the chance to wear lower heels or flats. You’ll be able to keep your shoes on all night and still be able to get down on the dance floor.

Reformation Winslow Dress

Marina Bateau Neck Long Beaded Sleeve Matte Jersey Gown

Lovers + Friends Sundance Maxi

Wait For Me Black Long Sleeve Maxi Dress

Adrianna Papell Metallic Knit Faux Wrap Surplice V-Neck Long Sleeve Ruffle Gown

Norma Kamali Diana Gown

Feel the Romance Green Off-the-Shoulder Maxi Dress

Lovers and Friends Galleria Gown

Winter Wedding Guest Jumpsuits

If you hate the idea of being constricted at all, then a jumpsuit is for you. They not only allow you to have a wider range of motion, but they also look super chic. Whether you want long sleeves, sleeveless, or strapless there’s an option for everyone.
