Wedding Fashion in 2018 – Menswear

When most people think of wedding fashion they jump to the bride and bridesmaids, and while we are all for it, we want to show our men a little love too. A lot of brides (and grooms) say their favourite moment of their wedding day is their first glimpse of their husband to be, so it’s important that you look perfect. Whatever your own personal style is make sure it shines through. Here’s a few of the current trends, casual and formal menswear styles for 2018.

Navy Blue

Navy blue has been a really popular wedding menswear colour for the last while and this is carrying into 2018 as well. However, this year things are brightening up a bit, and blue is becoming really trendy, in particular, metallic blue. Tip – A brown shoe goes great with this look!


Metallic blue is not the only shiny wedding fabric in fashion this year for menswear, metallic burgundy is also making a statement at weddings. This colour is really suited to Autumn, Winter and early Spring weddings, but in Ireland who are we kidding, with our weather it works all year round. Tip – Burgundy suits with a touch of black are really stylish!


Not everyone wants to wear a full made up suit to their wedding. If you are going for a more casual hipster vibe why not ditch the suit jacket for suspenders or a waistcoat. Light weight jackets with no tie and open buttons work just as well. Lighter jackets work best during the Spring and Summer months. Tip – Light jackets look great in light colours.


Black tie weddings are becoming more and more popular. It’s a good excuse for not only you and your soon to be newlywed to dress up but also for your guests to put on their best dress. There’s something really Monte Carlo and 007 about it, it’s sophisticated, fun and cosmopolitan. Tip – Match your theme to the dress code, it really works in this case!
