What should a man wear to an outdoor Wedding during the Summer months? Or any other time of the year in some warm states or other parts of the country? Sometimes the invitation may offer you what the dress code should be and sometimes you just have to take a chance and use your best thoughts.
Outdoor Wedding Wear for Men in the Summer Months
Morning or Afternoon reception
It’s all about the tone and time of the wedding or event. For a casual morning or afternoon reception, wear something light, maybe a lightweight cotton suit or some lightweight wool dress pants with a nice linen oxford dress shirt always a classy less formal way to dress.
Whether the location is San Diego or Hawaii or Arizona an afternoon affair invites a lightweight Blazer with some comfortable trousers. I think you can safely expect that the bride and groom want you to look comfortable and feel comfortable and put together under the Sun or early evening. Some guys might be able to pull off a white dinner jacket for day or a night event but you can never go wrong with a dark-colored lightweight wool suit which is always best. I also like a flower in your lapel. Summer wedding attire for male guests can be so much fun.
If the wedding really is on a beach and your thinking what is a “beach formal” then you must think tropical and elegant. Some really good looking shorts, sandals, and sunglasses will need to be packed for this sand and sea voyage (no socks) and if your going to wear a hat it really needs to be a nice looking one. How fun and festive is this going to be? You got to love it. The ocean or bay or lake in the background and so much more will make anything you wear to feel like your part of the destination wedding. The beach wedding during the warm late-summer months means summery attire without a jacket.
“Black Tie” dress code
But if the invitation says “Black Tie,” then wear your tuxedo.
