Five Ideas for What to Wear To A Casual Wedding
Going to an easygoing, informal wedding but still want to look chic? Here are five ideas for looking hot while keeping your cool.
Who says you can’t have a little fun with your suiting and approach to getting dressed for a wedding? Plus, the setting isn’t always going to warrant a two-piece black suit paired with a white crisp button-down and patent leather brogues…while sitting in a reception hall.
Here, we’ve broken down 5 different suits that can be worn to anything but your standard wedding. From channeling your inner rock star to an intimate ceremony in the English Countryside, we’ve got you covered.
Your best mate is in a band and, when it comes to the word ‘conventional,’ he’s anything but. They’re having an intimate ceremony inside legendary venue Webster Hall and you know the sartorial choices of his inner circle are as far away from ‘the edge of caution’ as possible. Why not play with color (and the recent runway trends) and add a pop of an unexpected hue to your attire. Show off your masculinity and rock a pale color. Lose the tie and toss on the rockers’ favorite accessory, a fringed scarf à la Steven Tyler. The off-beat combo of a fitted vest layered over a luxe t-shirt is surprisingly elegant and totally cool, man.
While we didn’t score an invitation to the Royal Wedding, the English Countryside is about as close as we are going to get to Willy and Kate…and that’s a fact. For a backyard wedding in Manchester’s English Countryside, which also happens to be an afternoon ceremony, stray from black. Play with lightweight fabrics, like a seersucker suit, and leave the black until after midnight.
You’ve been invited to cruise the murky waters for an early evening ceremony, followed by a laidback celebration. No need to go full-on nautical, but a rich shade of blue eased up with a skinny striped t-shirt looks fresh and modern. No tie necessary.
When it comes to getting down, toss the blazer and tie and stick to the basics: fitted trousers (cuffed) and a form fitting patterned shirt. Tone on tone pieces paired with denim provide a day-to-night outfit that screams “professional off duty.”
Keeping with the formalities of a proper suit, why not match the snow to your jacket and trousers and stick with a color theme? Winter white doesn’t always mean summertime; in fact, a casual white base is refreshing during the dreary cold months. As long as the wedding is deemed casual, you won’t be upstaging any brides-to-be here.
