Whether you’re a guest, groom, father of the bride or best man, Cording’s boasts the best summer wedding attire for men, ensuring that you look dapper. Relax and enjoy knowing that our head buyer, Justin, has you covered as he walks you through our best summer wedding suit ideas. This season at Cordings we have a wide collection of suits, from our cotton parade three-piece and spring city suits to linen suits and of course lightweight lightweight tweed suits.

A few things to factor into your outfit-planning:

– establish the formality of the occasion, whether it’s a smart, casual or more formal affair.

– the location of the wedding, whether it’s on a beach or in the countryside etc.

– the climate/weather to ensure you’re appropriately dressed and not too hot or cold.

Men’s Summer Wedding Linen Suits

The last thing you want to be doing at a summer wedding is melt. So, here are the best warm-weather suits to keep you on the dancefloor, even during the months where the thermometer stays in double digits.

Perfect for both smart and casual occasions, our linen suits for men are amongst our most popular for summer weddings, available in 2 or 3 piece options.

Our linen is made exclusively in Lisburn Ireland by a mill established in 1795 – a longer continuous pedigree than even Cordings!

Linen suits are eminently versatile and can be worn as a smart 3 piece suit with a crisp cotton shirt, or in a more casual style with an open neck linen shirt.

Men’s 2 or 3 Piece Linen or Cotton Suits

Our cotton Parade suits are a classic choice for weddings. Fine drill creates an effortless elegance and will keep you serene and unruffled whilst you quaff your champagne in the marquee whilst those around you are mopping their brow. In a heavy, but supple Italian cotton, this suit is available as a three or two piece outfit. That means you can leave your jacket on the back of your chair whilst keeping your look complete as you head to the dance floor in the evening.

For this suit, effortlessly pair our Oxford shirts, in pale blue or pink with a smart navy silk tie and contrast pocket square. To get the look above, shop our classic khaki cotton parade jacket, waistcoat and trousers – all in fine drill.

Men’s 3 Piece Suits

A lighter weight city suit is perfect for any formal event taking place in Spring or early Summer, choose a lighter weight (perhaps below 12oz for the warmer months) whilst opting for a lighter grey, blue or navy are all great colour choices for a wedding.

Team this suit perfectly with one of our poplin shirts to wear underneath and a woven silk tie and pocket square. Brighter coloured accessories will really make this outfit pop, but can also be paired with something more subtle.

Men’s Tweed Suits for Summer Weddings

An essential in every man’s wardrobe: a tweed suit – originally designed as transitional garments that could be worn from Spring into Summer. It’s an ideal lightweight piece for those sunny but cool Spring weddings.
