If you’re a groom-to-be at a beach wedding, then you’re luckier than other grooms, in so many ways, that you can’t even imagine them. First of all, you don’t have to get into a tux! Second of all, you don’t have to get into a tux! Since it’s a beach wedding, it’ll most definitely be a sunny day. So you can go in for light material pants and a shirt. Cotton and linen are the best breathing fabrics that will keep you comfortable in the sun. Just make sure they don’t look extremely casual. It IS your wedding day after all! Dress slacks in light colors like beige or cream, teamed with cotton dress shirts in a similar color tone or a Bahama style shirt with big, vividly colored flowers will give you that Hawaiian look! Going barefoot can be an awesome experience, but you can strap on some leather sandals in beige or brown and take them off later after the ceremony.
Beach Wedding Attire for Bride
Aah! What a relief you must be feeling that your fiancé agreed for the beach wedding. Now you don’t have to worry about a fluffy wedding dress with a long train that you’re sure you won’t be able to handle. If you want to maintain the traditional white color, you can go in for a pretty tea length wedding dress instead of a long and flowing wedding gown. It will help you walk easily on the sand AND you can flaunt your gorgeous wedding shoes! If you’re open to trying out colors for your wedding dress, then go in for a pastel shade and match them with a string of pearls or some stunning diamond jewelry. Alternatively, you can go for a dazzling white satin sarong and team it with a bright colored scarf. The key is to keep it simple yet elegant, all the time co-ordinating it with the beach theme decoration that you so intricately planned out.
