Many couples in 2020 and 2021 opted for a micro wedding for the ceremony part of their wedding and a follow-up party later when there are no guest number restrictions. Now we’re getting to the stage where we can plan our sequel weddings, we need to turn our attention to the dress code for the bride and groom. Fortunately for the groom, that is relatively easy; just copy the bride.
For the groom, following your bride’s example is the way forward. If she has chosen to wear her wedding dress again, you should rehire your suit from the ceremony day to match her formality. Or informality if you had a bohemian ceremony.
The bride might opt for a second look for your follow-up wedding, such as a white fitted dress rather than a princess dress with big skirts. If this is the case, you don’t need to have the morning suit you wore for your ceremony.
You could opt for a tuxedo or other three-piece suit. A three-piece suit gives you colour options meaning you can match your clothes with your wedding’s colour scheme.
However, brides are picking white cocktail dresses or light summer dress for their follow-up wedding. This means you can also take a more relaxed approach to your attire. A light coloured suit appropriate for a garden party is perfect for a more relaxed sequel wedding.
There are other things to consider when deciding what you’re is going to wear. Usually, groomsmen and your fathers wear something different on your wedding day that marks them as part of the main wedding party.
If you’re wearing the same thing for your sequel wedding as for your micro wedding, then decide if you want the groomsmen to wear the same and let them know. By doing this, you will be creating some continuity of both your celebrations in your photographs. And if you didn’t have groomsmen for the ceremony, now is the time to rectify that.
