Most modern couples – and their guests – are far more relaxed when it comes to dress codes. Don’t expect guests to stick strictly to these guidelines. For example, you can’t demand a male guest wears a dark-coloured pocket square just because you’re holding a wedding with a cocktail dress code!
If you are a groom who feels a bit like a fish out of water and in a suit when you are wearing a suit, we’ve got some inspiration to get your wedding plans started. Your partner may have fallen in love with you in your everyday gear, but a wedding is special and it is time to up the ante.
Including a dress code on your wedding invitations is a handy way to enhance the tone, theme, or mood you want on your big day, because your guests will dress according to your wedding’s overall style nicely. It also helps guests decide what to wear by providing guidance as to how formal – or informal – your wedding is going to be.
