men's summer wedding attire

The big day is approaching and you simply can’t wrap your head around all the stuff your wife-to-be has to take care of? Maybe you’re just tired of faking opinions on those twenty different flower arrangements or can’t differentiate the taste between all those gorgeous cakes? Relax, it’s not your job to know everything about wedding prep. It’s enough to be there, help when necessary and support your loving partner. However, there is something that you will have to take seriously. The problem of your wedding attire won’t resolve on its own. And if your wedding is in summer, you have to make sure that you choose the best possible attire and accessories to match the theme and feel comfortable. Take a look at the following tips that can help you.

Start small

You don’t have to rush and look for a perfect suit immediately. When it comes to the groom’s attire, especially if it’s for a summer wedding, you will have a lot more options to choose from if you actually wait for the hot summer months. What’s more, you’ll find it easier to match it with your bride’s dress since she will definitely complete this task before you even begin to think about what you’re going to wear. Therefore, it would be best to start small and look for adequate wedding accessories.

Your wedding suit

Once you find your main accessories, you can take your time to browse quality wedding suits that flatter your body shape. As mentioned, it would be best to wait for a while so that you can match your suit with your partner’s wedding gown. Of course, you don’t have to go out of your way to do this if this isn’t something of importance for the two of you. However, since this is a summer wedding, it’s important that you feel comfortable in your outfit. In that respect, not only should you pay attention to the cut and design of your suit, but its material as well. In general, cotton, silk, linen and seersucker are top choice materials for your summer wedding suit.

Your shoes

Choosing the right pair of shoes is very important since you will have to look good but also walk comfortably all day. What’s more, the wedding theme, venue and overall setting can help you find the best pair of shoes for your wedding day. If you’re going for an elegant wedding, Oxford and Derby style shoes are perfect for the occasion. However, if you want to hold your wedding on a beach or make it more intimate and relaxed, moccasins or loafers can definitely match the said atmosphere.

Choosing a tie

The obvious choice when it comes to choosing a tie is a regular neck tie. Essentially, you can make this type of tie work for many different settings. If you’re going with an elegant wedding theme, keep your neck tie sleek and elegant as well. On the other hand, if you’re set on making your wedding day fun and interesting, with a really specific theme in mind, you can find neck ties of various colors and patterns.

The second best choice is a bow tie. A bow tie definitely has that James Bond feel to it (or you may just be a fan of Matt Smith’s Doctor); so, if you want to achieve a similar look, definitely go with this type of tie. It’s great for both elegant weddings as well as the unconventional ones where there will be a lot of crazy dancing. You can also adjust its color and patterns the way it suits your wedding plans the best.

In case you’re opting for a beach wedding or a really intimate and casual wedding, ditching a tie completely is also an acceptable choice.

The most important thing when looking for a summer wedding attire is to stay calm and true to your own style. Even if elegant occasions are not something you’re used to, you can still adjust the look to your own personal fashion sense. What’s more, you can spice up your outfit even more, thanks to men’s jewelry, cufflinks and pocket squares.
