Whether it’s your own wedding, you’re part of the bridal party or simply a guest, we’ve compiled all the stylish men’s wedding essentials you’ll need to nail the dress code.
First thing’s first: you’ll need a suit that looks sharp and sets the tone for the day. For a more formal occasion, opt for classic black or shake things up with a stylish check or polished grey. A bowtie or slim-cut necktie will complete the look with panache.

If the invite calls for something a little more relaxed, navy or blue is a fresh antidote to black, and allows for plenty of play through interesting colour combinations and accessories.

Dress to impress
For the wedding guest who wants to make an entrance, consider pastels and pattern play, with printed shirts and blazers in on-trend shades of pink and coral hues. If you’re clashing prints, stick to pieces in a similar colour palette, or introduce a fresh white shirt to break things up a little.

Ensure you look the part from head to (literal) toe in a smart pair of dress shoes. Leather in varying hues — from tan right through to black — is classic, and can be called on time and time again. If you’re the groom, or the dress code calls for black tie, a patent black pair will add serious polish.

The perfect final additions come in the form of a tie and cufflinks. Stylish stripes and fresh florals are classic, a bow tie takes things up a notch, while cufflinks get smart in carbon fibre or stainless steel. For a personal touch, include a nod to a beloved four-legged friend (or whichever irrevent motif from Paul Smith speaks to you).

The gift of time
Whether as a gift-to-self, or for your to-be husband, a best man, or father of the bride, a new watch is a timeless gesture that will add a special touch to your (or their) look on the day, and be cherished for years to come. Black or brown leather is classic, while silver or gold mixed back with blue will be beloved by a truly modern man.
