Some couples specify their preferences for wedding guests’ attire on their wedding invitations. If there are no recommendations on the invitation, and you don’t feel comfortable asking the wedding couple, you can simply follow the standard rules for wedding guest attire. These rules depend upon the time of the wedding, and the wedding venue and wedding reception venue location.

If you’re attending a formal, traditional wedding, you should plan on wearing modest, dressy clothing. If the wedding is during the day, or if the wedding venue or wedding reception venue is outdoors, you can wear something slightly less formal. Unless the wedding is on a beach, you should avoid wearing shorts, t-shirts, short skirts or dresses, or flip-flops. If you’re attending an evening wedding, you should plan on wearing cocktail attire, like long, formal dresses for women, and suits for men.
