Check out the Dress Code

When it comes to wedding attire, assume you’ll need dress pants and a blazer. You’ll also need a dress shirt and matching shoes. There are exceptions, especially in spring. A smart idea is to check the bride and groom’s dress code.

Most wedding invitations will tell you whether it’s a cocktail party or a black-tie affair. You’ll know whether you can wear something traditional like a crisp white shirt under your coat or if you can wear something more casual like a lightweight jacket with a navy crew neck. You can find clues about the venue. You may be able to skip the necktie for beach ceremonies, while garden parties are open to patterns and bright colors. When in doubt, ask the groom or groom’s party.

Check the Weather

You will need to know the details of your outfit if you are following a dress code (e.g. a white-tie wedding). If the attire seems more flexible, consider the weather. What you wear will depend on the time of day and the climate. Although you may not be able to wait for the forecast to shop for spring weather patterns, you can still search the internet.

If it’s the rainy season, the right attire will help you stay dry. Make sure you have enough room for your guests and bring an umbrella. Are you attending a destination wedding ceremony? Layering may be necessary. Layering may be necessary.

Blue and white

Blue is a traditional color for spring that looks great as part of a men’s suit outfit. You can also choose casual pants and a sport coat. A light blue jacket can be paired up with a white dress shirt, a floral tie, and a white pocket square. The outfit will look stylish and seasonal with matching brown dress shoes and a watch. If you prefer, choose a traditional men’s springtime color like navy. Cobalt and blue-grey are two of the most popular shades of blue.

Pastel Purple, Pastel Grey

A combination of timeless grey and seasonal purple will add a touch of sophistication and fashion to your spring wedding attire. A light grey suit along with a white or grey dress shirt and a pastel tie is a sharp look that will oftentimes complement the wedding décor. A purple button-down shirt paired with a grey jacket and khakis, or tan-colored trousers can be worn casually. The button-down can be worn alone with the khakis or dark-colored belt.

Dark Blue and yellow

A unique color combination is a great way to make your wedding look stylish. While some men will choose to wear neutrals and a simple color scheme, others will opt for dark blue or yellow.

Both mustard and navy look great together, so they can be worn together. This bold look is very attractive in a men’s style while also helping to hide stains. The best outfits are a navy jacket and pants, with a yellow shirt underneath. You can choose a solid color like yellow or a spring pattern such as dots or flowers.

Other Spring Color Combinations

The season’s most popular colors are pastel pink with grey, and orange with blue. You can also combine green with khaki, or beige and light blue. If you’re having trouble choosing a combo, choose white as your base and match it with one of your favorite spring colors. Clay and terracotta are warm, mature colors that are often underused in weddings. You can breathe life into your outfit and party with red and aqua.

Choose lightweight fabrics

When possible, choose light and breathable fabrics for your clothing. Although summer weddings are hotter than spring, you can still experience sweating. The right materials will protect against staining and wick moisture. When you feel fresher for longer, you’ll be able to spend more time celebrating the happy couple. Men’s modal t-shirts are popular for spring weddings right now because they’re breathable and lightweight. They can be worn under a jacket, or a button-down shirt to help wick moisture and add style to your layers.

When you’re done with the wedding, or if the festivities become more casual, you can take off your coat and show off your soft and vibrant shirt. Choose a loose-fitting jacket such as a linen or cotton blazer. You’ll look more relaxed and comfortable in spring when your outfit is unstructured. Khaki chinos, light-colored linen pants, and light-colored linen shirts will keep you moving and celebrating. If you’re looking for spring shoes, Oxfords and penny loafers will make you feel lighter without making the outfit feel too casual for a wedding.
