Wedding Guest Attire

Deciding what to wear for a wedding can be tricky, so we've come up with a few guidelines to help you out for the special occasion. First and foremost, read everything on your invitation! A dress code is usually mentioned along with the date and location of the wedding. Here's a quick go-to list you can refer to when shopping. If your invite says... White Tie
  • This is the most formal level of attire for a wedding. Definitely dress to impress!
  • Men should  have a polished look in a tuxedo with bow tie, and formal shoes
  • Ladies should wear a full length gown along with your best jewelry


Black Tie
  • This is the second highest dress code
  • Tuxedos are appropriate for men
  • For ladies, a long evening gown or formal dress is perfect


Formal or Black Tie Optional
  • For men, a tuxedo is still acceptable, but not required. A dark suit and and tie will do the job
  • Ladies can wear a long gown or a formal cocktail dress


  • Venue and time of day for the wedding are important to consider
  • Men can wear a suit and tie, or dress pants with a button down shirt
  • Ladies can wear a cocktail dress or a dressy blouse and skirt


  • Jeans and a T-shirt are never acceptable unless otherwise noted on your invite!
  • Men can wear dress pants or khakis paired with a button down or polo
