No, it’s not rude to wear pants to a wedding as a guest! In fact, I think it’s a great idea.

Things to consider when wearing pants to a wedding


I would suggest you avoid a white pantsuit. Depending on the wedding this could come across as too bridal on the day.

If close to the bride ask before to make sure they are not going for a bridal pantsuit themselves. They are popular with modern brides.

Also, consider the culture of the wedding you are attending.

There may be traditional attire for some weddings so make sure you will not cause offence with your wedding outfit choice.
