When it comes to wedding-guest attire, men often get the short end of the stick—there simply aren’t as many options as there are for women (dresses, jumpsuits, two-piece sets...the choices are endless). Unless it’s a black-tie affair necessitating a tuxedo or casual nuptials where a shirt and trousers will suffice, a suit it is! But just because the look is standard doesn’t mean there aren’t unique and stylish options.

Spring and summer weddings can be idyllic—warm weather, fresh flowers, chipper spirit in the air—but for men who are planning to wear a suit to a wedding, well, certain styles befit sunny days and balmy temps a bit better.

Throughout the warmer months, lighter colored suits (such as beige, camel, and light gray) in thinner fabrics like linen and lightweight Italian wool are great for men. These lighter tones make a potentially stifling suit that much more comfortable when heat is a factor. Plus, they’re often a more fitting choice for venues like a vineyard, beach, or forest than black or dark gray would be. For a more nautical look, shades of blue are sharp and perfectly on theme—everything from classic navy to punchy cobalt and steel blue appear cool and modern. For a contemporary look, try a shrunken fit or ultra-skinny silhouette to stand out.

For guys unafraid of bold colors, shades of green are proving popular in the suit arena, including pine and juniper hues and brighter teal tones with a subtle sheen. Then there are the men who really like to make a statement. In this case, shades of red—from rusty-brown hues to poppy coral tones—are another fresh take on suiting. While these daring shades certainly err on the side of eccentric, they’re completely appropriate to wear to a wedding, where the mood is cheerful, instead of a professional setting. For a more toned-down version, look for a patterned suit with an accent color in the fabric—it’s a much easier and more comfortable foray into the world of brighter tones.

Whether you’re in search of a classic suit you can wear to every wedding on your calendar this year or want to add a bolder style to your collection, ahead, 15 stylish men’s suits to wear to spring and summer weddings.
