Semi-Formal Wedding Attire for Men

Semi-Formal Wedding Attire for Men

The dress code for a semi-formal wedding typically is between casual and formal attire. It is sophisticated and elegant but not to the extent of black-tie formalwear. It allows for a polished appearance, making it a versatile and widely embraced choice for couples seeking a graceful yet more relaxed atmosphere for their special day.

A well-fitted suit is a great starting point for a semi-formal wedding. Colors such as navy, black, and gray are popular choices that are very versatile. Pair a dress shirt that complements your suit and other small accessories for the big day. White and light blue are very common dress shirts worn at semi-formal weddings. 


A well-dressed man pays attention to the small details. Trafalgar accessories are crafted to stand the test of time. When properly cared for, they will remain an essential part of your wardrobe for years to come. Neckties are usually expected for semi-formal attire. Explore neckties in solid, plaid, and other novelty prints to last you many weddings and formal occasions for years to come.

Make sure you dress for the time of day the wedding takes place. Go for darker hues when attending formal evening weddings, and experiment with lighter colors for daytime ceremonies. This attire allows you to be more comfortable, but make sure you are still dressing well for the occasion! Our best tip is it’s better to overdress than underdress!

If you are unsure, please double-check the invitation or communicate directly with the couple on their vision!
