Choosing the right pair of shoes is not that complicated. The first thing to look at is what does your wedding invite say? If it says “black tie” then your only option is to go for black patent leather shoes.

Choosing from a variety of shoes like ones with the traditional laces, straps or buckles is very easy but make sure to match the color of your socks to the color of the shoes. Thin long socks are also a must for these type of shoes.

If the wedding is more casual then a suit will do just fine. Suit colors such as navy blue, gray, brown or black are the basic ones you should stick to. These colors are easier to match with your basic shirt and tie. Choosing a shoe is also much easier with these color selection. It can be a laced up oxford or a classic loafer like this one from Gucci. If you will be at a beach wedding then going sock less in not completely unheard of.
