A Wedding Style Guide For Guests


The benefit of being a wedding guest and not part of the wedding party, is that you have more options when it comes to what you wear. You also have an opportunity to invest in a suit you can wear all year round.



Weddings will usually have a dress code, which should give you an idea of what to wear. If not, a good guideline is to be relaxed but polished. Your attire should be lowkey to not upstage the bride and groom, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be unique and stylish.


Casual tailoring is a good place to start as it is becoming an increasingly popular choice. Just remember that casual at a wedding is not the same as casual everyday-wear. Having a  bespoke casual suit means that you will have the best fit, comfort and ease of movement. After all a wedding can be all day and night and, with all the dancing, you need to be comfortable!



That is not to say that there isn't etiquette when it comes to suiting-up for a wedding. For example, denim and t-shirts are a strict no. Unless it is a black-tie wedding, you can explore different colours such as navy, dark green, burgundy or grey. Consider different textures, mix and match fabrics, and play with colours that contrast and complement each other to create a more interesting look.



A casual wedding suit gives you more options in terms of style options and accessorising. Accessories infused with your personality can make your look more unique. Adding a pocket-square with a prominent fold can add a semi-formal touch. We have had customers wear different patterns but stick with a specific colour palette. Experiment with statement pieces like neckties, lapel pins, cufflinks.



At King & Allen we design bespoke suits that are made to your exact measurements. Not only will it fit you like a glove and flatter your figure, it will be so comfortable that you’ll wear it for years after the event.
