2019 His and Hers Wedding Outfits for Guests

July 20, 2019 Susan Douglin

Everyone knows the deal. As soon as you think you know exactly what to wear to your friend’s wedding, you look at your calendar, and boom! You have another 4-6 to attend by end of summer. But no one wants to spend a fortune to look amazing at each wedding they’re invited to, especially when you’ll also have to shed out funds for a gift.

So here’s the solution…

If you buy the right neutral color suit (for him) and (for her) a dress or two with versatile shades you can mix n match to dress up or dress down for each type of wedding. With the right apparel pieces, you can add a variety of accessories to create an entirely new look. Whether you’re going to a posh wedding or an outdoor country-themed wedding, you can repurpose your wardrobe many times over.

Here are some recommended his and hers wedding outfits put together by The Knot and Men’s Warehouse, along with links to where you can purchase each look.

Navy Suit & Navy Satin Wrap Dress

A tailored navy suit can easily transition from a more casual daytime wedding to an evening cocktail reception (or even to work). And a strappy high/low wrap dress is wearable from summer into fall—just add a cropped jacket or wrap.

Dress Them Up

On Him: For a chic, modern wedding in the city, start with classic pieces like a French cuff dress shirt and sleek cap-toe oxfords, then layer on formal-yet-cool accessories: mixed metal cuff links, a champagne tie and paisley pocket square.

Shop similar accessories: Floral ties; gold cuff links; paisley pocket squares; black oxfords; all available at Men’s Wearhouse

On Her: This chiffon wrap dress with a high/low skirt exudes glamour and romance, especially when coupled with accessories like bejeweled heels, a metallic clutch and crystal earrings, which really bring the bling.

Dress Them Down

On Him: For a beachfront celebration or an easygoing affair at the local yacht club, pair the same navy suit with a striped shirt, plaid bow tie and boat shoes for a preppy-meets-nautical vibe. If the occasion allows, play it cool and skip the tie.

Shop similar accessories: Bow tie and pocket square sets; boat shoes; both available at Men’s Wearhouse

On Her: Chiffon usually comes off as formal, but when paired with fun accessories, the evening vibes come down a notch. Bold floral print heels, beaded earrings and a raffia clutch give the ensemble a more casual feel.

Gray Suit & Black Pleated Midi Dress

Suiting up in gray is a surefire way to nail just about any dress code (except black tie, of course). This go-anywhere black dress is its ideal companion—and the silhouette is so flattering.

Dress Them Up

On Him: For a wedding at a historic estate, pair the suit with a black tie and monk-strap kicks to up the formality, then add a patterned pocket silk and gold-accented cuff links to show some style savvy.

Get the look: Egara gray slim fit suit coat, dress pants; Pronto Uomo white French cuff dress shirt; all available at Men’s Wearhouse

Shop similar accessories: Black and gold cuff links; black patterned pocket silks; black ties; black monk-strap shoes; all available at Men’s Wearhouse

On Her: Details like the deep neckline and criss-crossed back make this midi slip dress sophisticated enough for any formal affair. Rose gold accessories including strappy sandals, beaded earrings and a bow-front clutch keep the look elegant and fashion forward.

Dress Them Down

On Him: Woodland weddings, fetes on the farm and backyard bashes call for a breezy yet refined look. Take style cues from the rustic setting with a plaid tie, a printed shirt—and, yes!—suspenders.
