Advice About What to wear to a religious ceremony

Religious ceremonies are extremely important events for those involved. Whether a marriage, communion, confirmation, bar mitzvah, church service, or any other event, they are typically serious occasions. This level of importance dictates a more formal attire.

The serious nature of religious ceremonies ensues that the attire be more formal. For men this at a minimum requires nice pants and a dress shirt and at a max a nice suit?.the perfect opportunity to wear a nice business casual outfit.

At a minimum we recommend a traditional long-sleeve dress shirt with nice-looking pants and matching belt, socks and shoes. For less formal ceremonies this can include lighter colored pants and brown shoes. However, to be safe and ensure that you are dressed appropriate, we recommend wearing a long-sleeved dress shirt with dark wool pants, a sport coat, black shoes and matching accessories. This more formal look is always appropriate for a religious ceremony.

Useful Tips

  • Religious ceremonies are typically serious occasions - when in doubt dress more formal
