What to wear to a friend’s beach wedding in summer? A Guide for Men.

Summer is amazing. I absolutely love this season of warmth. It’s the perfect excuse for wearing shorts and sandals to almost everywhere. Hang up a hammock between the trees and take a nap in the shades. Let’s not forget that it is also the best season for rocking a pair of aviator sunglasses. Those sunglasses are so classy… I feel like they would never go out of style, but I digress.

Despite how great shorts and sandals and perhaps singlets are, you can’t wear those to a friend’s or relative’s wedding. It’s just not very appropriate. OK, maybe under certain circumstances it’s fine. One of those circumstances being if the ceremony is a Hawaiian-style casual beach wedding. When that’s the case, by all means, go with the beachy-iest outfit you got. Other than that, you will probably want to dress up a little. And maybe even suit up for a more formal event. As a guest, it is courteous for you to dress up according to the host’s standard.

So, what exactly should you wear to a summer beach wedding as a guest? Dressing up for a summer wedding is somewhat more difficult than doing the same for a spring or fall wedding because you have one more factor to consider: the heat and humidity. Even if your suit jacket is made of light material, chances are you’ll still be sweaty before the other wedding guests arrive. And I hope you’re not in one of those locales with high humidity. Heat and humidity is one of the worst combinations ever and will make you feel very uncomfortable.
