Knowing what to wear to a wedding presents its own challenges before you even contemplate the added factor of dressing for one taking place in summer. Whether it’s taking place in tropical climes or during the brief sunny spells of British summertime, your wedding get-up should toe the line between contemporary and classic – after all, pictures taken on the day are those you’ll frequently revisit.
Dressing for someone else’s big day, however, usually requires some polite style etiquette: you don’t want to turn up in a statement suit that will steal the bride and groom’s thunder. Luckily, summer weddings present a dress code that’s often relaxed enough to allow for understated yet sophisticated attire. Simply put, it’s unlikely a three-piece will be required unless you are playing a part in the wedding itself.
The trick to championing summer-wedding suits is to consider the fabrication, colour and finishing touches. We present three options that will ensure you stand out – as the best-dressed guest that is.
