Wedding Dresses for Men to Wear: Find Your Style

Man choosing wedding dress

Whether you want to wear a wedding dress, a gown, or something a bit more casual, there are incredible wedding dresses for men available to choose from.

Wedding Dresses for Men

Gender fluidity in the fashion world has become the norm, making the search for a wedding gown or dress a bit easier to find for those who identify as men.

Dresses for Men to Wear at a Wedding

Upon starting your search, check with local bridal shops and salons. Keep in mind that many bridal shops only see individuals by appointment, so be sure to call ahead to double check. If at any point, you feel uncomfortable or disrespected while shopping in a bridal shop, know that other people's behavior is not your fault and you deserve a positive dress shopping experience. There are always other shops and store options available that can offer you an amazing shopping experience. Bridal shops:

  • Offer a wide variety of more formal wedding dresses, gowns, and skirt and tops
  • They typically have accessories, veils, and jewelry options available to style with your look
  • They tend to have incredible tailoring options to ensure your gown or two-piece ensemble fits perfectly
  • May offer a wide range of sizes and customization options
  • Offer a range of price points

Casual Wessing Dresses for Men

Casual wedding dresses may be found at bridal shops, but you may have better luck checking out gowns and two-piece options at a department store, or online. Know that you can always purchase a larger size if the tailoring is off and get it professionally tailored to your liking. You can also customize dresses or gowns that are almost perfect, but just need a little something extra added. Etsy is a great place to find a custom wedding dress, gown, or two-piece option that range from causal to formal. Many sellers on Etsy can customize the fabric, and will take your exact measurements to ensure your wedding outfit fits perfectly.

Latest Wedding Dresses for Men

For those who are interested in something of the moment to wear at their wedding, it's best to check out high-end designers' latest lines to see what styles are trending. Gucci, Etro, Yohji Yamamoto, and AllSaints have incredible options for men looking for dresses and two piece skirt and top options. You can head to these designers' websites, or check out The Real Real and Vestiaire Collective for amazing vintage designer finds.

Vintage Wedding Dresses

eBay offers a vast array of vintage wedding dresses, from never been worn to gently used, that are often more affordable than buying from a bridal shop in the first place. Check out the measurements and photos carefully and be sure the seller has a good rating and positive feedback before purchasing. You may also consider purchasing an option in a larger size so you can truly customize the fit. Keep in mind that some tailors can do some customization work if you find a piece that you love, but feel it is missing something.

Find Your Dream Wedding Outfit

Know that you deserve to find your perfect wedding dress, gown, or two-piece wedding ensemble that makes you feel amazing on your wedding day.
