What to Wear to an Outdoor Winter Wedding


Winter can be a beautiful time of year to get married but knowing what to wear as a guest can be tricky. After all, you want to stay warm while still remaining stylish. 

Men have a definite advantage when it comes to choosing winter wedding attire since a suit or tux offers the best of both worlds. But you’ll still want to take some other factors into consideration before choosing your winter wedding outfit.

Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas for a Winter Wedding

Consider the dress code. Before you start exploring winter wedding looks, you need to know the dress code the bride and groom have chosen for their big day. A formal or semiformal event calls for a black-tie tuxedo, while a suit works well for a cocktail or more casual affair.

Factor in the Time

The wedding’s time of day will also play a part in what you choose to wear. Darker colors, like Black, Midnight Blue tuxedo, and Charcoal Gray, work best for evening events, while lighter shades, including Light Gray and Mystic Blue, will look great in the daytime.

Layer Up

The smartest way to stay warm is to layer your look. Add a vest to your suit or tux so you’ll have that extra layer of fabric to keep you warm. You can also use the vest to add that “wow” factor to your ensemble by choosing a plaid or paisley pattern that blends well with your suit or tux.

Choose the Right Fabric

Generation Tux’s suits are made of 100% merino wool, making them the perfect choice to keep you warm but comfortable.

Slip on the Right Shoes

If you’re going to be walking in snow or over ice, be sure to select your dress shoes wisely. You’ll want something with a rubber sole to keep you from slipping. You might even want to consider wearing some stylish snow boots and bringing a pair of dress shoes to change into later on.

Accessorize Well

In addition from cufflinks and a dashing pocket square, it is probably a good idea to add other accessories that are sure to keep you warm, including a scarf, gloves, and a comfortable pair of socks.

December Wedding Outfit Ideas

December is an especially festive time of year—why not incorporate some of the season into your winter weather look? Some ideas include:

Donning a White Shirt

You simply can’t go wrong with a crisp white dress shirt. Using a neutral as your base—like winter white—will allow you to then add pops of color with your accessories.

Selecting Jewel Tones

Choose a tie and pocket square in a rich color that blends in with the holiday season, such as ruby red, emerald green or royal blue.

Have Fun

The holidays bring out the kid in all of us, so add some whimsy to your look. Think socks with a candy cane or Christmas tree design, or a scarf in a fun print that is easy to take on and off.
