7 Things You Should Never Wear To A Wedding

A little disclaimer before we begin. This beginner’s guide is not for the traditional Indian wedding with the traditional desi attire.

Most people believe that only women turn to bridezillas or zombie vampires as they fuss over every aspect of the wedding especially the way they look, whether it is their own wedding, their best friend’s, office colleague’s, relatives near or distant or they are just a plus one. But this belief does not imply that the men get a get-out-of-jail free card and are let off the hook to dress and behave as they please.

Men too require to plan their ensemble depending upon the location, venue, and theme of the wedding and their relationship to the happy couple. Of course the general tone is formal but still it is better to consider all scenarios while preparing.

To help Men to make more rational and wiser decisions we have compiled a list of 7 things you should not be caught dead in at a wedding.

1. Jeans:

However low key the occasion is, your most expensive, uber cool and super stylish denims won’t make the cut. Not even with a blazer or a sport coat. Go for dress pants instead.

2. Tuxedo:

Confused. This is because the Groom and his guys in the wedding party are generally dressed in a Tux. It is like girls can not wear white to the wedding. The bride should be the only one wearing it. Same rules apply here. Go for a formal suit instead. It would be really cool if you can enquire in advance what colors the wedding party is sporting on the wedding day and avoid those too.

3. Shorts:

Even if it is a breach wedding please avoid wearing shorts. If the weather is too warm or the wedding is at a beach then opt for linen pants or light weight chinos.

4. Ostentatious Clothing:


5. Sweatpants & Hoodies:

Avoid joggers too. I am sure you can stay without them for a day. However athletic or fitness freak you are abstain from flaunting it. Even runaway brides are dressed elegantly.

6. Avoid All Black:

The monochrome look is a classic but all black is best reserved for funerals and other grave occasions. It is a wedding for heaven’s sake, lighten up and add a dash of color to make your monochrome look pop.

7. Athletic Shoes:

A strict No No. Go for dress shoes, brogues, and loafers.

Weddings are a celebration of love, friendship and commitment. Cherish the occasion, have fun and make some wonderful memories.
