Summer is just round the corner, and if you’re over 25, chances are at least one of your mates is getting married. If you are finding it difficult to choose the right outfit for the occasion – Archzine is here to help! We have selected 66 great mens summer wedding attire options, that are both stylish and cool, without being stuffy. But before we take a look at the examples, let’s briefly go through some of the most crucial style guidelines for guys.
Yes, there are some lucky few who get invited to a StarWars themed wedding and get to attend dressed as Stormtroopers but, for the rest of us, looking dapper is a must. After all, vintage or modern, seaside-themed or country chic, weddings are a usually a big deal, and you should dress accordingly, unless you want to experience the bride’s wrath. These tips will help you stay on the right track:
- Ditch the denim. Seriously. With so many cool trouser styles to choose from, you have no excuse to show up in jeans!
- Wear a blazer. Yes- even if it’s the height of summer. Opt for a stylish blazer made from a breathable fabric such as organic cotton or linen.
- Remember that it is always better to be overdressed, rather than underdressed, at a formal event.
- If you are going to a daytime wedding, don’t shy away from clothes made from light fabrics in bright colors (provided they are not t-shirts or jeans!)
- Those invited to an evening nuptials, on the other hand, should ideally attend dressed in darker colors.
- Don’t forget to have fun!
We cannot stress the importance of wearing a suit enough. Even if the ceremony is informal, it will still make a great impression and show that you respect the bride and groom, and appreciate them giving you an opportunity to share their special day. If you don’t like stuffy formal suits that make you look like a penguin – there are many cool alternative options you can try (such as the afore mentioned smart trouser and blazer combo), that don’t include jeans and Hawaiian shirts. You we love them, we promise!
A little side note to bear in mind, when getting ready for a wedding is that you should steer clear of black shirts, unless specifically told otherwise by the bride and groom. Similarly to the idea that female guests shouldn’t wear white, avoiding black shirts is simple wedding etiquette.

Alternatively, if you are feeling romantic, you can consider coordinating the color of your tie with the outfit of your partner. If you are still unsure what to choose, your safest bet would be contacting the bride and groom, and asking them directly. There is absolutely no shame in that – after all, it’s their party, so they call the shots!
