My Wedding - - CONTENTS -

While bou­tiques are in­un­dated with out­fit op­tions for women, the choice for men can some­times be a lit­tle dif­fi­cult to de­ter­mine – is a waist­coat and bow tie too for­mal? Do you run the risk of go­ing too ca­sual with your stan­dard go-to checked shirt? To help de­ci­pher the mys­tery of what a wed­ding guest should wear, lead­ing men’s de­signer and clothes re­tailer Tessuti have put to­gether a few help­ful tips to make sure that you not only look the part at wed­dings, but that you also pull off any look with that es­sen­tial dose of style.

Dress for the Oc­ca­sion: Make sure you are aware what kind of theme the wed­ding will fol­low be­fore de­cid­ing on your out­fit. Church wed­dings gen­er­ally fol­low a for­mal theme - make sure you step out in a crisp suit and shirt combo. Beach wed­dings usu­ally call for some­thing a lit­tle more laid­back – think re­laxed linens and beige trousers (3/4 trousers may even be ac­cept­able in this case – but check with the bride first!).

Suit Up: With the ex­cep­tion of beach wed­dings, the ma­jor­ity of wed­dings do call for for­mal at­tire. Even if you live in your chino trousers, for a wed­ding it is time to up the ante – suit trousers in clas­sic black or char­coal will make sure your look stays smart yet clas­si­cally stylish.

Add a Pop of Colour: Re­mem­ber, de­spite all the pomp and pageantry of a wed­ding, it’s also a cel­e­bra­tion, so don’t be afraid to in­ject a lit­tle fun into your out­fit. Add a pop of colour with a pas­tel coloured tie or lighten up any suit with a bright shirt - Polo Ralph Lau­ren have a great se­lec­tion of pas­tel shirts ideal for look­ing smart and stay­ing cool.

Don’t For­get Ac­ces­sories: Just be­cause you’re dress­ing for­mally doesn’t mean you have to forgo your own sense of style. Bring any suit and tie combo up to date by styling in your favourite ac­ces­sories - a de­signer belt or set of cuff­links will en­sure se­ri­ous style points all day long.
