Should I wear a watch with my Wedding suit?

Updated: Jul 3, 2022

Yes, and Broad & Swan have some of the best and affordable Swiss Made dress watches for men.

You can absolutely wear a watch with your wedding suit, however, there are some dos and don'ts you should remember...

As with all formal occasions, the watch is an accessory and should be subtle, understated and elegant.

When wearing a formal suit, you should always wear a dress watch. This type of watch is generally minimalist, elegant and classic in style.

Your wedding day watch should be slim so it will easily slide under your shirt cuff and not constantly be on show. After all, the watch you wear on your wedding day should be special only to you and will be a sentimental reminder of an important occasion in your life.

Your wedding attire is all about attention to detail. You should match the watch strap to your belt and shoes. If you are wearing black shoes and belt, then make sure your watch strap is black, brown belt and shoes, brown strap etc... Doing this will tie your whole look together and will guarantee you look elegant and dapper.

Mistakes to avoid when wearing a watch on your wedding day

On this occasion, leave your sports or divers watch at home. These type of watches are chunky and distracting and not suited to formal occasions. They are much better suited for casual settings.

If you don't want to receive notifications while delivering your vows, I would advise against wearing a smart watch. Pings and vibrations are an unnecessary distraction during your celebration.

Leave the stainless steel bracelet watch at home. It will stand out too much and does not have the same elegance as a leather strap.
