The wedding dress code for men

Beauty & Grooming

Impeccable grooming and what to wear for every type of ceremony

Are you ready for the upcoming wedding season? Whether you’re the groom and preparing to take centre stage or attending a wedding and looking for your bride-to-be, here’s how you can look your freshest and finest for the occasion.

Formal and semi-formal attire: The classic route and the creative route

There are two ways you can go with this. If you think the wedding will be traditional and conservative, it’s safe to go the classic route. Think a proper dress shirt and standard tie paired with a grey or navy suit – the kind you would wear to an important business presentation.

But maybe the couple getting married work in a creative industry and you know the wedding will have an easygoing, contemporary vibe. You can have fun with less common suit colours like plum or olive green. Try a patterned shirt, like polka dots, textured tie or playful socks. Only wear a full tux for the most formal weddings, which will usually state the dress code requirement on the invitation.

Casual or “no dress code”

If the wedding is relaxed and there’s not a specific dress code required, opt for a sophisticated look to appear dressed up enough to look respectful. That means smart casual wear, not trainers, shorts and a t-shirt. Try a sports jacket with tailored jeans, or button-down shirt with classy trousers.

Beach formal

Beach weddings call for light suits in colour and fabric, such as a beige linen suit. You can pair it with a crisp white shirt or other lightweight, lightly hued dress shirt. This is one occasion where you can go tie-free and show your ankles, but keep the feet covered with semi-formal shoes to still look dressed up.

Flawless styling

The best suit in the world will do nothing for your look if your grooming doesn’t match. The HYMMTM men’s grooming line is fit for both your daily life and special occasions. Before shaving, wash your face with the HYMM Energizing Daily Face Wash, a mild cleanser that won’t dry out your skin. Now for the three shaving essentials: The HYMM Foaming Shave Gel is formulated with licorice root extract to help calm the skin, and also contains surfactants to soften beard hair, giving you a more comfortable shave. A quality razor can also make or break your shave. The HYMM 5-Blade Razor is designed to adapt to every facial contour, fit snugly into your hand and glide with ease over the skin, thanks to the lubricating strip with vitamin E and aloe vera. The special trimmer for sideburns, goatees and moustaches has guarded ribs for additional safety. Finally, reach for the HYMM After Shave Balm. This fresh-scented formula moisturises the newly shaved area without leaving a greasy residue.

And that’s it. You’re now ready to look your sharpest for the wedding season!
