The Wedding Guest Style Guide

We're well and truly in the midst of the wedding season and whilst the invites are stacking the wardrobe may be lacking...but don't worry, we got you guys! Although you may be required to adhere to the lucky couple's dress code, it will more than likely involve a trusty whistle and flute so it's just down to choosing one to match the theme and which won't upstage the groom! Here are are few ideas which should be able to fit most themes thrown at you...

By loungewear we don't mean cosying-up-on-the-sofa wear, we mean somewhere in between casual and top scale formalwear. Otherwise known as semi-formal, this dress code can often be seen bouncing across the invites and many are unsure what it actually means. We'd recommend going for a mix and match three piece, achieving a laid back yet smart vibe. Also known as cocktail attire, this look will most likely be matched up to low key weddings with plenty of character.

You may find yourself with the classic black tie dress code which will be a blessing as it's an easy one to master. If this is the dress code you've been given you will most likely be attending an evening reception which allows you to push the boundaries a little with your attire. Instead of instantly grabbing your standard plain black suit or tuxedo, opt for a dinner jacket with a little more detail. Pair this with a suave bow tie and white shirt and you'll be sure to make an entrance!

The majority of couples choose to tie the knot in the summer months, and for good reason! This kind of wedding calls for a summery dress code. Think pastel shades, balanced checks and lighter fabrics. If you've got a destination wedding in the diary (on the rise of late!) this dress code may also be requested. It's always useful to have a lighter coloured suit in your wardrobe as it will match up to most of your formal summer events, just make sure you've got a steady hand on your drink!

Becoming increasingly popular is the country barn wedding. This dress code has tweed suit written all over it, something we can most certainly help with! You'll need neutral earthy colours and bold checks on your radar for this one which will fit into the rural countryside setting perfectly. Max out the vintage vibes by adding on a pocket watch, grandad collar shirt and coordinating bow tie. If a complete herringbone tweed check is tipping the scales for you, break it up with a plain waistcoat in a block colour to match the check.
