Depending on your styling choices, green can rise to almost any occasion. Here, we’ll provide four examples of different wedding settings and suggest colors and fabrics that could be a good fit.

The Outdoor Wedding

The most obvious usage for a green wedding suit would be an outdoor wedding. Make use of different colors or a coarser fabric for a less formal suit. The Olive Tropical Wool Suit gives you the best of both worlds with a rougher fabric and it’s melange appearance.

The Formal Wedding


If you’re planning a classic formal wedding but wish to steer away from the conventional dark colors, consider the Dark Green TwistAir Suit with a waistcoat. This rich green hue exudes elegance and formality, especially with the addition of a waistcoat and compared to lighter green shades, making it an ideal choice that perfectly suits the occasion.

The Rustic Wedding

Another classic setting for a green suit would be a rustic location. The common denominator for both rustic and outdoor weddings is their close connection to nature. In a rustic setting, a linen suit would work well, as it gently wrinkles, adding to the casual vibe. Another excellent option is the Forest Green TwistAir suit, with its subtle olive green color that complements the rustic theme beautifully. The fabric is highly breathable and comfortable, making it perfect for outdoor settings.

Here are two examples of two linen suits in different green shades and styling. For a wedding, we recommend swapping out the shirt for a crisp white one and adding a tie. Optionally, you can consider incorporating a waistcoat for an extra touch of formality.

The Winter Wedding

For a winter wedding, consider opting for a more subdued and less vibrant shade of green. When it comes to fabrics, heavy wools or flannel could be excellent choices. The inherent warmth of flannel perfectly complements the colder season, and its weight and density provide an excellent drape to your suit. Flannel’s versatility allows you to seamlessly transition between indoor and outdoor settings, making it a practical yet stylish option for a winter wedding.

Green in eveningwear

Now, it is important to underline that green is not confined to nature. On the contrary, green can be styled to suit both casual, festive and formal occasions. Even for a gala-themed wedding, green can be used for a dinner jacket.

For autumn and winter events, go for a thicker and warmer fabrics for your dinner jackets, like corduroy or velvet. And for spring and summer, lighter breathable fabrics like wool, linen, wool, silk and linen mixes are an amazing choice. When selecting a differently colored dinner jacket, keep the rest of the outfit in black. Green introduces a touch of freshness and vibrancy to your evening attire. For autumnal or winter weddings, consider opting for thicker and warmer fabrics like corduroy or velvet. Alternatively, for warmer weather events, lighter, breathable options such as wool, silk, linen, or blends can make you look dapper and are well-suited for the occasion.

Styling tips

When designing a suit for a wedding, it is wise to begin by considering the surroundings and ambiance. Common rules for dressing up or down apply to green, just as they do to any other natural color. Choose a fabric with more structure and opt for a lighter color palette to create a more informal suit.
Logically a darker color and more smooth and shiny fabric make the suit appear more formal. Finding the exact right fabric can be tricky, which is why we recommend that you allow a custom clothier to guide you through a quality selection, from which you can make your choice.

The shoes

Wearing brown shoes for your wedding is entirely acceptable. Brown shoes complement green suits perfectly, providing just the right touch that you might desire, even though it leans slightly towards a more casual look.

For super formal weddings, you should opt for black shoes or at least dark shoes. Black shoes give you the classic and timeless aesthetic you would want for a special day like this.

Once again, it’s the location of the wedding that determines the styling and what will look the best.
