Unsure what combination of suit, shirt, and accessory you should wear to a wedding?
We did an article a few weeks ago on what you should not wear to a wedding, but if you are looking for more direct suggestions on what suit combinations are good to wear for weddings, then here are a few suggestions.
1. The Black Tie
Perhaps the most formal suit combination for weddings is what is referred to as a Black Tie outfit. This is a very straight forward combination that utilizes four major pieces: a black tie or bow tie, a white shirt, a black tuxedo, and black leather shoes. You may also want to consider wearing a white pocket square folded with a square edge.
The Black Tie suit combination is the simplest outfit to wear to a wedding, but not the most common. It is mostly worn to particularly special wedding events or for evening weddings.
2. Dark Suit Combination
A dark suit combination offers a little more room for creativity than a black tie outfit.
This is a less formal but more common version of the black tie outfit to see at a wedding. This suit combination doesn't need to be a tuxedo. Wearing any dark suit, from deep blue to grey, is acceptable. You should still wear a white shirt, but the tie you wear can be any colour that goes well with your suit.
3. Bold Colours, Patterns, & Creative Ties
Wearing a less traditional suit combination to a wedding is growing in popularity. Suits that are green, red, or even sporting a checkered or floral patterns are all appropriate choices.
Bold outfits are rising as popular suit combinations for weddings
This style of suit combination also allows for a greater flexibility in the kind of accessories you wear to a wedding. You can wear a tie or bow tie with and interesting pattern, a pocket square folded in a decorative way, or you can even wear a silk scarf in place of a necktie.
