One Corner

The one corner fold is formal, but not overly so. You can wear it with a tux or a suit. Here is how to fold a pocket square for a wedding in the one corner style. Start off with the square on a flat surface. Have it so it appears as a diamond. Fold the bottom corner up to the top corner. You should have a triangle. Cross the corners of the triangle over (right corner to left and left corner to right). You can fold the bottom towards the top part a bit, if you would like. Stick it in your pocket with the fold down, and adjust.
