Nothing shouts casual fun louder than a beach wedding. But trust me, there’
There are a few things to consider for grooms and groomsmen in any situation. There are a few more that are specific to beach weddings both in terms of a smooth and easy ceremony and fashion involved on the beach itself. Making sure to stay healthy and hydrated on the way up to the wedding is extremely important in tropical climates. Deciding on the clothing well ahead of hand and ensuring it matches appropriately with the bride and bridesmaids is equally important.
The first one is fairly simple. Weddings are typically all day affairs when you count the reception. In a standard wedding in a church or chapel it is not difficult for the groom to become overheated, even with air conditioning. Late night bachelor parties the night before the wedding are generally best avoided for numerous reasons but particularly for tropical weddings. Jet lag, intense heat, and a body unused to heavy perspiration or tropical climates. Beyond the obvious advice against partying too hard the night before at a bachelor party even a rehearsal dinner or drinks after can get a little out of hand in a festive tropical setting. Taking care to properly rest and hydrate will help a beach wedding groom look and feel his best for the long amounts of standing on the hot day ahead of him.
Te second set of tips are more related to style than general health but in tropical climates they are somewhat related. While every groom wants to look his best, the traditional three piece suit isn’t always the best answer when it comes to a beach wedding groom and groomsmen party. Confirming with the bride and bridesmaids as to how casual the gowns will be will give the boys a much easier time of working out the right attire. Linen suits, both traditional and in the tropical style are always popular options for a beach wedding groom. Linen is light, airy and comfortable when fighting the tropical sun and humidity.
It really is just that simple. If the groom and groomsman behave themselves reasonably well at the tropical destination before the night of the wedding, or even a few days before hand, they will find themselves rested hydrated and ready to party at the reception. Making sure the clothes work with the bride sounds like a no-brainer but for many grooms the once in a lifetime day is a bit much so this kind of planning may not come to mind. Linen is an every popular option for beach wedding grooms as it helps with both the weather and the theme of a beautiful destination wedding.
