24 Beach Wedding Guest Outfits For Men

beach wedding guest outfits for men cover

If you are a guy invited to a beach wedding and you want a stylish outfit, that can be tricky as you should feel comfy while being stylish. Here are some tips that may help.

Choose Right Attire

First, a suit can be unbearable on the beach for a variety of reasons. Second, if it’s a casual wedding, a suit isn’t required—you’ll need to opt for beach wedding attire for men that feels more like business casual without being boring. Lighten things up by opting for a breathable linen-blend blazer instead of a traditional suit jacket. For men’s casual beach wedding attire, skip the tie and instead wear a classic striped button-down shirt and a pair of white or colored jeans. A great fit – especially with trickier summer fabrics – is a must, which means all the little tailoring rules apply.

Don’t Show Up in Sandals

This wedding might be on the beach, but sandals are too casual for any event, much less a friend’s wedding. Go for a tan lace up shoe without socks works great, as do loafers. You can wear a sleek low top sneaker, and with the exception of light-colored leather, make sure you avoid heavy fabrics, like suede, which can throw a winter feel to that airy and cool look you’re going for.

Get Some Accessories

A pocket-square is a way to dress up a suit when you’re not wearing a tie. While you could usually wear both, a beach wedding beckons a nonchalant atmosphere – and both accessories can send you into just-a-little-too-formal territory.

You don’t want to be left squinting during the “I do’s,” so remember to pack a pair of sunglasses. Again, go with a classic look like aviators or wayfarers. A stylish watch can be a nice beach wedding guest accessory, too, rock one.
