For a more comprehensive guest attire guide: https://gentl.mn/what-to-wear-as-a-wedding-guest
The number one rule as a wedding guest is that you never ever want to overshadow either the bride or the groom.
Basically, you tone it down. You don't wear wild colors, you don't wear bold patterns or accessories like a top hat or something that makes maybe other people uncomfortable or something that is decidedly dapper than what the groom is wearing.
If the wedding is an evening event, it's going to be more formal than a day event. As a man, you can wear a dark suit either a navy or charcoal.
Traditionally, you should always have some form of neckwear.
Definitely, avoid monochrome looks because it looks odd and there's not enough contrast. Your best bet for a wedding is a crisp white dress shirt although light blue may work as well.
If you get an invitation that does not stipulate a dress code, please reach out to your host and ask them what would make them feel comfortable or what they expect.
The most formal one you can find today is probably black tie. Most of the time in the US, you'll see black tie optional. That means you can wear black tie on some with the black bowtie.
Another popular dress code for wedding is cocktail attire, it basically means you have a dark suit or suit has little sparkle or something special, a little more of a pop of color, a little louder than the business suit and you can wear a dress shirt, you can wear a tie, something that is still formal but just with a little more fun.
If your wedding is an outer event or in a garden setting and it's during the summer, you can wear lighter colors but the best thing is to ask your host to get an idea of what kind of dress they want, And what kind of event it is.
When it comes to accessories, apart from the tie, a pocket square is really fantastic because it elevates your outfit, it's very easy to fold, just takes a few seconds, and just underlines the event and its importance.

I once wore a custom tailored 3 piece suit to the wedding of my cousin. It was dark blue with dark red pin stripes. I combined it with one of those synthetic boutonnieres Conor McGregor wears most of the time. The boutonniere was also dark red and my pocket square was red with dots. My necktie was dark red and my shirt white. I wore black monks straps with two straps (I know they are more informal but I fucking love them).
My relatives are not dapper at all and they looked at me like: Holy shit.
Especially the girl friends of my cousin that didn‘t know me, stared at me all the time.
Do you guys think it was too much? A lot of the guest made me a compliment... I don‘t know how I should feel about my outfit. I was drawing a lot of attention haha.
Please share your opinion with me dear gentleman Youtuber who I have already like and subscribed,because you bring back the Cool into the Gentleman.A friend of mine has to attend a wedding and wants to stand out for all the single senoritas in the wedding without becoming the peacock of the event, the marriage will take place in an open space most of the time,he is 5.9'' bulky built, he has to attend a middle of day summer wedding,he will have his Jack Nicholson sunglasses with him,he plans to buy a watch with rose gold decals (vincero kairos probably), although he would so love go with a total just black/gold watch without leather wristband but that darn thing is not matching with the outfit, probably he will wear bracelet,definitely a blue navy suit because a not expensive suit should not be of bright colors he believes, blue navy suspenders,no belt,napkin,suit will cost no more than 200 dollars,he would like to match his shoes with his tie (indeed?), tie is not yet decided,actually my friend is clueless about what brands to choose for his outfit (any free would be extremely helpful),he will wear probably camel brown shoes and white shirt. What do you think with all of the above and what would you suggest? He is Caucasian with facial groomed beard.He is a good sport my friend on his 30's.Thank you in advance for your willingness to help another fella part of a loved Mediterranean country we all know and love.Your feedback might actually get him to know the love of his life.
Is there an equivalent channel for women that you would recommend with tips on etiquette, dress, and style? The ones I have come across seem quite varied and have wildly different definitions of what it means to be a lady and dress "ladylike". Thank you!
sven, i was invited to a wedding and if i decide to wear a necktie, would a tiebar be okay? its a not so formal wedding and after asking what the dress code will be i was told to wear "what im comfortable with"
I hope you can get back to me, but I am going to a wedding in a month, I have a navy blue jacket, two buttons, however, has elbow patches. The other is black, 3 button suit, but I am 5'10 and afraid I won't look as good. I want to get shoes and pants to go with either so whichever is more appropriate, I'd be getting either blue pants and brown shoes or black pants and black shoes
Sven, question/opinion. I have a wedding coming up. It's a daytime wedding "formal" but on the coast. I plan on wearing a navy suit. I would like to wear brown shoes but because I see this look so often Im afraid someone else will have this blue suit combo. Should I just go with black shoes or take a chance?
Depends on your point of view. Whenever I wear suspenders out to a nice evening, my wife juices up with champagne, tears them off and slaps me around in the face with them saying "Oh you're so cool now". So, on the receiving end, maybe not dapper.
I would go to a tailor and pay him to get your measurements and then go to stores like www.tailorstore.com and www.indochino.com , I personally use tailorstore.com and I love it. I just put my exact measurements , Atleast tailorstore.com starts from269$ for a two piece suit.
I was at a wedding last Saturday. I wore my three piece two buttons charcoal suit, white shirt and a silver necktie, with a trinity knot. Also had a black Homburg hat for outdoor use.
Confess I was looking for this video for guidance, but it wasn't available yet, and took a risk with the trinity knot, but it was a nice situation, the groom was even nicer than me, and I just enjoyed it.
Trinity knot.....bro to be honest just avoid those kind of flashy knots...real gentlemen dont wear that kind of knots on formal events.....better try half windsor or 4 in hand that would make your outfit dapper
White tie is considered the appropriate dresscode and its kind of what people expect in our social circle. And in Sweden (where I live) the royal family and people like that always wear white tie or alternatively a morning dress for weddings during the day. Same goes for big events like the Nobel prize ceremony.
I have a wedding tomorrow! But unfortunately I got into this caring about fashion and how I look only quite recently. I don't have the wardrobe to really pull it off this time. I'll just wear my crappy black suit for this one and go all out in the next one.
Thank you very much for this video Raphael! I found the information to be very useful as I'm going to attend to a wedding this weekend. I'm nineteen years old and have recently started to use neckties and pocket squares and I'm a bit lost when it comes to choose my accessories. Which tie and pocket square combination would you choose to a navy suit if you would be a guest at a wedding and would pink and beige colours be over the top?
