When it comes to weddings, one of the most important things a couple will need to decide on is the groomsman attire. If you’ve chosen a beach theme, it may not be as easy as you think, finding a balance between style and comfort can be difficult.
Thankfully, beach weddings are considered to be more relaxed than traditional weddings, which gives you a bit of freedom when choosing the groomsman attire. To give you some ideas, we have listed five options to get you started with choosing groomsman attire for a beach themed wedding.
1. Open Button Up Shirts
Chances are if you’re having a beach wedding, you’re likely to get warm and humid conditions. Choosing open button-up shirts can provide a little extra ventilation and keep the groomsman feeling comfortable. In terms of colour, white or any light colour such as beige or blue will look smart not attract too much heat.
2. Rolled Up Sleeves & Suspenders
To add a little something extra, why not add suspenders and let the groomsman roll up their sleeves. This adds charm and looks great in photos.
3. Hats & Bow Ties
These two accessories add a slight spin to the beach theme. Hats have an added bonus of protecting the groomsman from direct sunlight and keeps the sun out of their faces. Bow ties look great but may be uncomfortable for some, in this case, suggest keeping them on for photos only.
4. Hawaiian Inspiration
Hawaii is well known for its beach weddings. Groomsman attire for a traditional Hawaiian wedding usually consists of a white shirt paired with khaki pants and topped with maile lei. A maile lei is a traditional Hawaiian accessory originally made from leaves of Maile, a sweet-smelling plant that can only be found on Hawaii.
5. Shoes – Loafers or Sandals
Another consideration when it comes to groomsmen attire for a beach wedding is footwear. As you know, a sandy beach is a little tricky to walk on and you might be tempted to go barefoot. Consider footwear with flat bottoms such as loafers and sandals as they are comfortable for beach use. Socks not needed.
Incorporate one or more of these ideas when choosing your groomsman’s attire for a beach themed wedding. Remember that beach weddings are supposed to fun and relaxed compared to a traditional wedding and this should be reflected by the groomsman’s attire. The key is finding a balance between comfort and style, which will be easier by using the five tips above.
