Men Beach Wedding Attire Ideas

There are 3 different avenues when looking for men beach wedding attire ideas. Casual, semi-formal and formal men’s beach wedding wear. As you can imagine, beach weddings are usually less strict in terms of dress code.

It’s mostly because of the many and sometimes unpredictable outdoor elements that make it harder to dress with decorum.Floral jacquard beach wedding blue shirt


Blazing sun, strong shore winds, sand or stony calcareous ground… These can really spoil your expensive leather shoes and make you feel like melting ice cream in your 3 piece suit!

That’s why many people choose to have a casual beach wedding celebration.

Spouses and guests can enjoy the pleasure of a day at the beach surrounded by friends and family on their memorable wedding day.


However casual does not mean scruffy.

If like many people you wonder what is the limit when dressing casually for a beach wedding, here is my point of view:

Clean short pants but not necessarily jeans or cargo shorts unless prescribed otherwise by the planner\spouses.

This Morrocan style white pattern on a deep blue background is leisure looking without looking sporty. Whether you decide to wear a large pattern or a subtle tiny anchor print, a high collar will add a nice touch of elegance to your outfit.

Long Sleeves Shirts And Pants

A comfortable option when wearing long sleeves and pants at a beach wedding is to choose the right fabric. Beach wedding semi-formal linen shirt

Linen is made to be worn in a warm climate as it absorbs moisture from the skin and does not trap warmth from the body.

The only inconvenient is that it tends to wrinkle easily.


To avoid this, choose a garment blend that mixes linen and cotton or linen and synthetic fibers.

The following pants are made of linen and rayon; a synthetic fiber. They combine both the linen’s breathability while rayon prevents it from creasing.

The perfect dosage for a beach wedding under the sun.

Linen Jackets

I’ve noticed that sleeveless jackets are often preferred to regular long sleeve jackets for beach weddings. My opinion is that both are equally effective. If it gets too hot, you can easily take them off. Also, you can wear both. A long sleeve jacket can be interesting when evenings are cooler. To me, it’s really a question of taste and comfort.

Here again, there are many great designs of linen blends jackets to choose from.
