WHAT TO WEAR TO A SUMMER WEDDING??

GUIDE TO WEDDING GUEST WEAR

Gentleman’s etiquette states that as a guest, you do not upstage the groom; you should be dressed less formally than the leading man of the day.

The pleasure of dressing up for a summer wedding comes with looking dapper, understated and most importantly staying cool and comfortable in the heat.

For a Summer wedding there are some key considerations: firstly - WHERE is the wedding going to be held? If it is abroad, perhaps a three piece is not the best option here – instead you may consider a mix and match outfit such as cotton chinos with a linen shirt and waistcoat or lightweight jacket or a tailored short suit. Consider wearing lighter fabrics than your average wool suit – breathable cotton or linen are more comfortable in the heat of the day.

If the wedding is held in a culturally diverse country such as Dubai, there may be other restrictions on dress codes, such as shorts worn above the knee.  It is best to research the temperature of the location and check the time of the wedding before you plan your outfit – will it be hot and humid at the midday ceremony but cooler in the evening? -  If so maybe best to bring a change of outfit.

When researching your summer wedding look think about FABRIC and FIT as these are key to keeping cool in the heat – look at Cotton or Linen as an alternative to wool. BEACH weddings might call for LINEN suits, but what to wear on your feet? May be best to go for bare ankles and suede loafers that can be removed easily on the sand.
