For many fellas “wedding season” may not be a highly anticipated time of year, but ready or not, here it comes. Whether you’re helping plan a bash of your own — or simply joining the festivities as a guest — planning the perfect wedding wardrobe doesn’t have to be painful. We promise.
While formal ceremonies celebrated by suited grooms and white-gowned brides are still de rigueur in America and other cultures, it’s becoming more common for the modern betrothed couple to break from tradition.
In the age of Pinterest, couples are choosing to get hitched in more casual circumstances that allow for greater individual expression (and many more burlap tablecloths, mason jars and chalk boards). Wedding attire is getting in on the action as well.
Enter Dockers. For grooms searching for something slightly less formal than a typical suit and tie this wedding season, Dockers could do the trick.
For wedding parties, Dockers offers not only an assortment of pants and jackets that will look great on groomsmen — but an accessible price point that will free up wedding budget for other expenses. Plus, an investment in Dockers is an investment in a garment you’ll wear beyond the big day.
Read on for four modern wedding themes — plus the perfect Dockers ensembles to match. Whatever your scenario: outfitting yourself or your soon-to-be-husband, or simply attending a seemingly never-ending marathon of summer ceremonies, we’re here to help crack your wedding dress code.
- Beach Bash Seaside nuptials…rolling waves…a tropical destination…all barefoot, of course. Keep things bright and breezy in a pair of bright colored Alpha Khakis and a colorful collared shirt to liven up the party.
- Perfectly Preppy You may be getting married at the country club, but the vibe is more golf-and-tennis than full-on formal. Keep it classic in our On-the-Go navy blazer (guaranteed to keep you cool when you are tearing it up on the dance floor) and nod to tradition in our old-school Signature Khaki.
- Country Chic Nothing says country like gingham, so this tailored blazer is the perfect pick for a stylish affair in the rolling hills of New Hampshire. Pair with paper white Alpha Khakis to elevate the look from casual to polished — just watch out for grass stains.
- Wild Western If you really want to buck tradition — and the vows are out West (or in a barn in the middle of nowhere) — why not don some true American classics? Pay a little homage to the crazy ride that is marriage with a pair of Levi’s jeans, a crisp poplin shirt, and cowboy boots. Giddy up!
