From Groom to Guest: Wedding Style Guide
Even though summer is starting to wind down, the wedding season is year-round in 2019. Chances are, you have been invited to quite a few weddings. It can be hard to decipher the dress code on the invitation. We are here to help you elevate all of your looks for the big day. Groom or guest? Either way, Hubbards are the perfect way to make sure the wedding is easy on your feet while keeping you polished and ready for the photoshoots ahead.
You're a guest and the invitation says "casual."
A casual wedding has a straightforward dress code. You're going to a wedding that you wouldn't describe as traditional or boring. This is an opportunity to take on the playful, relaxed day in a pair of blue or grey dress pants and a linen shirt (rolled-up sleeves are optional), a polo shirt, or a button-down. To complement your outfit, choose something elevated, but casual for your shoe. Blue Skies or Hubbard Free are both up to the occasion. Just remember to watch out for the sparklers when the couple is making their getaway!
You're a guest and the invitation says "cocktail."
Let the party begin! Pull out a suit and tie in your favorite shade or a sports coat if you're feeling like toning down your look. Either way, City Legend and Ivy Legend are both up to the challenge of walking through the venue for hours and dancing the night away. Want a matching belt? Try Final Touch and enjoy that put-together feeling. When you're pulling away from the party, your feet will still feel like it's the beginning of the day.
You're a guest and the invitation says "formal attire" or "black tie optional."
Now we're moving towards a formal wedding. Avoid looking out of place. Pull a dark suit or tux from your closet, dusting off your cuff-links, and accessorizing with an eye for detail. You'll find that Highlander, Founder, Tipping Point, or Market Cap are confidence in the form of luxurious leather and insanely comfortable construction. Your dancing partner might very well be looking at your feet. It's hard to ignore a style icon.
You're a guest and the invitation says "black tie."
You're going to a sophisticated wedding. You should lean towards an ensemble that makes you feel effortlessly self-assured. This is an event that undoubtedly calls for a tux. Pair it with Tipping Point, Highlander, or Royal Scot for the perfect final touch of sophistication. Turn off your cell and enjoy the moment. The champagne will be arriving soon. Salut!
You're a groomsman at a casual or unconventional wedding.
This is sort of a fine line to walk. On the one hand, you want to blend in with the wedding venue and the other groomsmen. On the other hand, there's nothing wrong with being a cut above — Slip on Founder or Market Cap for the ideal pairing with your coordinated suit. You can never go wrong with a classic shoe that stands out from the crowd. Pro tip: relax before the ceremony. Remember, the photography does end eventually. In the meantime, you have shoes that keep you comfortable and stylish for the 14 hour day ahead.
