If you thought dressing up for weddings is only meant for ladies, you are wrong! Today's men have become very metrosexual about everything in their life, and weddings have become a great occasion for them to suit-up. So, let us take a look at wedding attire ideas for guests as well as the groom, based on wedding themes.
Casual Attire
A casual wedding theme is sure to confuse men in deciding what to wear―a casual look or a wedding look! If the wedding is based on a casual theme, you have a number of options to wear.
Shirts
High Resolution suit
Casual men's wedding attire can be characterized as a more relaxed, more laid-back kind of semi-formal dressing. A casual wedding obviously means less formalities. A black tie is a big NO-NO, but that does not mean that wearing a t-shirt is appropriate.
If you have to attend a casual wedding as a guest, consider wearing a light-colored short-sleeved or long-sleeved shirt with a button down pattern. If you are young enough to wear bright colors and can carry them well, you can consider wearing a bright-colored polo shirt.
Pants
You will not have a choice of wearing jeans, unless the couple say so. Casual weddings can either be on a beach, in a park, or in an indoor/outdoor event center.

Try a couple of earthy-colored khakis or light-colored cotton pants for a simpler, lighter, and relaxed look.
If you are comfortable enough, you could consider wearing a pair of navy dress shorts and team it up with a light-colored shirt and a casual tie with a loose fitting knot to have a cool and casual look.
Shoes
Men brown leather shoes
Often, men team up casual outfits with formal shoes. Guys, you don't want to look as dressed up for another day in the office. Ditch those black leather, and canvas or tennis shoes for a casual wedding. If it is an indoor wedding, a pair of casual suede shoes is a great idea.
Accessories
Golden wrist watch
Ditch the dress ties and bow ties and also cummerbunds, they are too formal. Instead, wear your favorite watch from a luxury brand or a bracelet. A casual, printed silk scarf around your neck that complements your shirt color perfectly will do wonders.
A groom should look less casual than the guests, which means you can team up a casual long-sleeve shirt with a tie and a casual jacket. Light pinks, light greens, and light blues will work great. Nonetheless, colors like mauve, olive and beige―if you belong to the group of men who can distinguish these shades from their original colors―are good options.
Consider wearing light-colored formal pants and team them up with casual leather shoes. You can wear a designer scarf around your neck or a tie to distinguish you apart from the groomsmen. Do not forget to follow a common theme with your bride. Your outfit should complement with the bride's wedding attire.
Beach Wedding
Beach weddings are one of the most romantic and memorable wedding ceremonies, and so there are chances of bridesmaids watching someone for themselves. So choose wisely and dress up well.
Shirts
Linen and cotton short-sleeved shirts are the best men's attire for a beach wedding. A full-sleeved dark-colored shirt with cuffs is too hot for a sun-kissed wedding. Make sure you wear light-colors like light blues, white, green, and beige, cool fabrics like linen, cotton, and seersucker. Linen shirts from 'Tommy Bahama' will be sexy options to choose.
Pants
Choosing the right kind of pants for a beach wedding is really a tough job. You can wear shorts provided they are presentable enough. That does not mean you can wear any printed pair of shorts.
Consider wearing navy dress shorts teamed up with a linen shirt. Striking a right balance is what all you need. Khakis too, make a great style statement as a beach wedding attire.

Wear comfortable clothes - it will show off your body and make you feel confident.
Shoes
Flip-flop for men
Your leather shoes are obviously not meant to be worn on a beach. So what if it's a wedding? Ditch them right away and wear your flip-flops or sandals. Wearing beach slippers could be inappropriate. Make sure you clean your feet if you have thought of wearing sandals or flip flops.
Accessories
Women squeezing sunscreen
The only accessories to recommend are sunblock lotions, to avoid any sunburn. And a thin leather belt for your shorts or khakis. Avoid anything around your neck.
They are so deeply in love
If you are the groom, follow the right kind of clothing style, whatever you wear, make sure it is beach-friendly. You can wear shorts, flip-flops with a very light-colored 100% linen suit from a good brand. A big 'NO' to anything around your neck. Make sure you follow the bride's attire.
Even your beach wedding attire should complement each other. Leave collar buttons open and flaunt the nape of your neck. After all, you don't want to sweat like a workout on your D-Day, do you? Use sunscreens and please avoid any chances of a possible sunburn.
A pedicure is must for those who opt for flip flops on their feet. White or tan are the perfect colors to look stunningly sexy on your beach wedding. Keep your entire dressing cool and comfortable.
Were you looking for a formal wedding? Do not get disappointed. Tuxedos have been and will always be the only answer to what men should wear at a formal wedding. Formal leather shoes, formal dress, ties and bows remain the same too. Although, you can try different formal outfits if the formal wedding party is a themed one.
Have your wedding planned with the help of a wedding planner, and make sure you hire a personal stylist exclusively for your wedding. For those of you who are invited to attend a wedding, this was useful enough to decide wisely what to wear. So with these ideas, stay stylish and live it lavish.
