Sponsor Post: A Perfect Outfit for a Beach Wedding

If you are in the process of planning a beach wedding, I am sure you are excitedly dreaming of a ceremony on the sand with the ocean in the background. Beach themed weddings produce a grand affair while taking place in a casual setting for a wedding. One question facing brides and grooms is what to wear during their beach wedding. An unique aspect for ceremonies occurring at the beach is that light, casual clothing is extremely acceptable.

Outfit For the Men
Men have extensive options. Men have the privilege of putting on a suit that will make them look good and also feel very relaxed and comfortable. Men will look dashing in a simple light linen suit in white or coffee shade. Linen suits are a wonderful option because they are breathable and cool which will aid in keeping them from getting too hot. Male guests are free to wear slacks and a polo-shirt. If the wedding has a has a Hawaiian or tropical theme men can absolutely wear something more colorful and bright like a Hawaiian floral shirt.
Outfit For the Women
The bride, just like her bridesmaids, should look for dress that will fit for the entire setting and the entire mood of the wedding ceremony. Since beaches are usually associated with light breezy afternoons and carefree attitude, many brides choose light, gauzy dresses, though some of them still prefer traditional and formal wedding gowns. A popular look for beach weddings is shorter gowns as they prevent sand get on the dress. Also popular for beach weddings are sleeveless and off-shoulder dresses. Moreover, many brides choose colorful dresses for a beach ceremony instead of opting for a traditional white, taking an advantage of casual atmosphere and tropical colors.
If you are not a part of the wedding party, you can wear a simple light, free and airy dress, maybe the one with floral print. Here again, linens and pastel colors are wonderful choice. Finally, if you are making a destination wedding in a tropical location, be sure to take your bathing suit with you!
