Sometimes a wedding invitation will explicitly request the guest attire: “black tie” or “beach casual”. Guides for dressing these events can be found online, including here on Often invitations don’t include this specific information, leaving guests to make the fashion decision.

The wedding invitation sets the tone for the entire event and should give the guest an idea of theme in order to “fit in”. A traditional, formal, black and white invitation would suggest attire of the same. An invitation with florals and fun fonts could hint at a more relaxed environment. Rustic invitations give feelings of sun dresses and casual attire for men, while invitations with lace might lead to a more romantic fashion choice.

Taking into consideration the venue, as well as the weather, will ultimately determine the guest attire, but the invitation is a perfect starting point when looking for your perfect wedding outfit.
