Well Groomed: The Beach Wedding

Beach Wedding Groom Attire

Time to share a bit of beachy inspiration with you all- and this one’s for the boys! The fact is, beach weddings can be a difficult dress code to crack, both for grooms and their groomsmen (and even for male guests).  And you may ask yourself: is a suit too smart for sand? Are shorts too casual for an important occasion? It’s hard to find the right balance, but fortunately there are lots of stylish grooms both in our own archives and across the web to give the lads some beach wedding attire inspiration. I’ve noticed that it really comes down to personal taste – for example, some grooms go all out and take their black tie to the beach, while others jump at the opportunity to wear shorts and sandals. Some choose just a little tweak on a favourite summer look – but with a bowtie here and a well-cut open shirt there, and in keeping with the casual nature of a beach wedding, just about any combination of beach wedding groom attire can be made to work handsomely. And when in doubt, a light linen trouser and white shirt will never serve you wrong. Here are 20 groom’s parties who rocked their tropical looks! *Shopping sources in this post use affiliate links.
