What To Wear To A Beach Wedding

Weddings performed on the beach are increasingly popular in recent times I have received dozens of comments and emails requesting help in choosing the look for the event, but don’t blame the undecided, this type of ceremony you can count on some nuances that can completely change the type of clothing to be used, see some examples below:

1-Wedding walk on sand

Is that held on the beach, with the bride and groom closer to the water and the guests accommodated in seats right behind, looking out to sea. In this case the clothes have to be the lightest possible, since most of the time there is no protection against the Sun, besides, we have the problem of sand entering the shoes.

What the groom can use: The most advisable is the groom chooses a suit of a very light fabric such as linen, cotton or seersucker (anarruga), a cotton shirt, a casual shoe and tie to give a touch of class. Some people choose the tailoring vest instead of the jacket and often change work.

The guests can use: The guests will follow the dress code enforced by the bride and groom, but to relieve the bar who will attend the ceremony is better not be very Dour and leave the casual outfits come into scene. Linen trousers, a cotton shirt and a docksider or a leather sandals are good choices for this scenario.

Colors of clothes: the stripes present on the scene and its various shades are highly appreciated on the clothes for this type of wedding, so beige, white, off-white, green, light blue and Brown are some of the options for mounting a light and relaxed look.

Most appropriate Fabrics: lightweight cotton, linen and anarruga.

Cal ados suitable: loafers, boat shoes and casual oxfords to a more aligned. If the bride and groom choose to something extremely casual, lightweight canvas sneakers in light shades and leather sandals are options.

Accessories: the tie is more suitable for the groom, mainly in Gaza and cheerful tones, but is not mandatory, a handkerchief in the pocket of the jacket can be a charm, and the hats are appropriate, but they must be taken at the time of the ceremony. Some accounts or bracelets made of leather can give a cool touch to the look,

Liberal Dress code: the bride and groom choose to a more relax, with him wearing a pair of very light, a gown or linen shirt and white sneakers or docksider. Guests can even change the pants for a pair of shorts in cotton or Twill, of course, if the hosts do not oppose to it, of course.

2-wedding in front of the beach

Some people just forget to say that the wedding will not be exactly on the beach, but in a House facing the sea, with lawn and even some paved areas, this can cause some confusion with those that expect a cool event and end up going too informal, because just a little into the continent for which the costumes change slightly.

What the groom can use: here it is possible to use a thicker cotton suit, but nothing that will get hot. Linen is still a good fabric for the suit and shirts can have some standard very discreet and relaxed. As the boy’s foot won’t sink in the sand, the shoes can be more classudos as a oxford, derby or leather loafer with a nice gloss.

The guests can use: A pair of lightweight tailoring combined with a clear perfect drape shirt used inside the pants; and feet shoes soft top-siders and loafers. The sandals are out here.

Colors of clothes: in this case we can have some more sober colors like light grey or Brown, but the palette of beiges, yellows, Greens and Blues is still present.

Appropriate Shoes: oxfords and derbys are choices behaved and the boat shoes are more laid back and has a nautical atmosphere that blends with the landscape.

Accessories: hat is still a good feature to protect from the Sun, just remember to take it at the right time, flowers or mini arrangements on the groom’s lapel leave visual cooler and breezy, belts require special attention, the host should be leather, matching the shoes; the guests may be more casual, of canvas or shoelace, but the rustic leather can also work.

Liberal Dress code: the groom wears a suit of course, light cotton or linen, combined with a v-neck t-shirt, basic white, wearing a white tennis slip-on type. The guests become more comfortable using linen trousers and comfortable shirts on the outside, plus top-siders shoes, loafers or shoes similar to the groom.

3-Wedding indoors, overlooking the sea

When someone says he’s getting married in a particular Beach, just imagine the typical marriage of cinema, with the pulpit in the sand flanked by arrangements made with tropical flowers. But we have received many messages from people who said in doubt because the event would take place in a lounge, Club or restaurant overlooking the sea and just the pictures of the bride and groom would be made on the outside, on the beach.

What the groom can use: the site makes the occasion a little less informal, takes advantage of the landscape, but the environment (often air-conditioned) allows something more elegant as a wool suit cold light gray, medium gray, Brown, beige or Navy, following to the letter the dress code of a wedding in the city during the day. The tie might have more sober colors, but some nautical theme to not miss the atmosphere of casualness.

The guests can use: the customs of cold light-coloured wool or more tones and sober, following the dress code daytime wedding.

Clothing Colors: grays, Browns and beiges, make up the palette of both bride and groom, as the guests. The touch of color is of scarves and ties.

Appropriate Shoes: oxfords and derbys for a classic look, loafers and brogues can be used if the dress code is casual.

Accessories: Cuff links, scarves in my pocket and boutonnieres are elements that add value to the visual. A nice watch here can make all the difference.

Dress code casual: this is only for the guests, who can merge casual pieces to more formal items. The blazer is still required, but can come accompanied by a chino pants or jeans discreet, the shirts can have a small chess, checkers or delicate floral print, the shoes can be serious and not-so-suede.
