Men's Beach Wedding Attire
At Beach Wedding Photography we understand that for any wedding, the focus is usually on the bride and her beautiful wedding dress. But don’t be fooled. The groom’s wedding attire is just as important. For a beach wedding, the secret to looking good for a groom is to find the right balance between formal and relaxed. Lucky for you, Beach Wedding Photography can help you get there. We are the top wedding planning business in the Wilmington, NC area. Our wedding team will get you and your boys looking hot for your special day.
A lot of beach wedding ceremonies take place during the summer. For a groom, you don’t want to wear the same suit you would wear to the office. You want to look classic and simple, just like your beach wedding. There are some tips to being a first-class groom and getting some attention of your own.
Unless you and your bride decide that you still want to do black tie/formal for your beach wedding, let the tux go bye-bye. You want to choose lightweight materials, such as cotton or linen. Moreover, if you decide to even wear a blazer, you want one that is
unconstructed, meaning there is no lining.
When it comes to men’s beach wedding attire, the latest style is to have either a tie or pocket square. Since a beach wedding mood is nonchalant, you don’t need to wear both. As a matter of fact, you really don’t need either one at all, if you so choose to do so. A really nice classic men’s look for a beach wedding is a vest with or without a tie, or an open-collar shirt.
For footwear, boat shoes or loafers have long been an all-time favorite. They give off the casual and classic look you are going for. The wrong thing to wear on your feet if you are the groom, the bridegroom, or a guest, is sandals. While this might be a beach wedding, it is still a special event, so you want to look sharp and pulled together. If you want to wear shoes, you can. However, leave the socks at home with the sandals.
When all is said and done, you can never go wrong with a perfectly tailored lightweight suit. Men’s beach wedding attire doesn’t mean you dress down, just a simpler version of what you would wear indoors. Regardless of what you decide to wear, the most important factor is that your outfit is a good fit. If you need help in selecting clothing for you and the men in your wedding party, give Beach Wedding Photography a call!
