At some point, everyone has received the destination invite for a friend's wedding, and it finally happened to you. Whether you are looking forward to an excuse for a vacation or are stressed about the plans, you’ll at some point wonder: what attire do I even wear to a beach formal wedding? Other events that may require this dress code could be a work retreat that has a formal dinner on the ocean. Beach formal attire is not a common dress code you hear for weddings or events, which is why we are here to break it down for you.
Beach formal wedding attire for men is going to be similar to other semi-formal wedding attire with resort casual aspects. This dress code gives you an option to wear more casual fabrics that will feel comfortable for where the event is taking place. The first step should be checking the venue to get an idea of the formality expected in the wedding guest attire and the usual weather for the area (Pro Tip: If there is a wedding website - you should be able to find answers to these types of questions in the FAQ section). A beach wedding in Miami during June is going to be much more humid than if it were on the beach in Portland, Maine. It is imperative to check if it is going to be overlooking the beach or if you will be walking in the sand all night.
