It’s not only the bride and groom who think about what to wear during their wedding, even the guests who are attending have to consider what they are going to wear as well! Beach weddings often mean more casual outfits for the guests, but that does not mean you should be overly casual. After all, even if it’s being held on the beach, a wedding is still a wedding.

Some of the things you have to keep in mind when choosing what to wear for a beach wedding is the time the wedding will be held, in the daytime or in the evening. There’s also the theme of the wedding; you can usually find out if there’s a wedding theme or just how formal the wedding will be from the invitation. Here are a few tips to help you in picking out appropriate beach wedding attire for guests.

Beach Wedding Attire for Men

If the wedding you are attending specifically mentions beach attire or a Hawaiian theme, then you can wear flip flops, a straw hat, khaki pants, and an unbuttoned Hula shirt. If the wedding will be held in the daytime, you can wear light colored pants and loose fitting cotton shirts in light colors so that you won’t sweat as much. Casual pants, a golf shirt plus a light jacket is another option, but remember to stick to light colors.

Beach Wedding Attire for Women

Women attending beach weddings held during the daytime can choose to wear either sleeveless or off-shoulder knee-length dresses in light colors. Be sure to choose a dress that does not have a flowing skirt; it might cause trouble when the wind blows. Dresses with flower prints also work well. Don’t forget to wear a wide-brimmed hat to shield your face from the sun’s rays, and choose comfortable footwear that will make walking along the sand a breeze. Women can choose to wear cocktail dresses if the wedding will be held during the evening and the reception is scheduled to follow immediately after the ceremony. Minimal jewelry that matches your clothes and the theme of the wedding can be used to accessorize your outfit.

To sum it up, when choosing what to wear for a beach wedding, you need to make sure that you’re in the right attire for what’s required in the wedding and that you’re comfortable in your outfit. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen, bring a hat, and sunglasses to keep you as comfortable as possible.
