1) You (and/or your couple) are dreaming about a beach wedding: Congrats! And yes, even if it was not your idea, it is a great idea. We will give you some advice about the perfect groom linen suits.
2) You have been invited to a beach wedding: yes, now you have a problem because you have some wool suits but you figured out they are not the best option.
Discover the perfect beach wedding attire for men. Whether you’re a wedding guest, father of the bride or a groom planning your own nuptials, finding the right suit for the big day can feel a little overwhelming. Luckily, once you know the basics it’s not too difficult to start putting together your ideal wedding get-up. There are a few options when it comes to fabric, but today we’re going to focus on linen, the perfect fabric for a beach wedding suit.
Linen is one of the most popular choices for suits, and for good reason. It’s great quality, strong and highly breathable, so great for summer weddings! When it comes to finding the perfect suit, there are a few general things to consider, and others that depend on your role at the wedding. Firstly, check if there’s a theme to follow. You don’t want to fork out cash on a perfect suit to find yourself standing out like a sore thumb when the day arrives.
If the ceremony is going to be in the beach probably they already expect you to know what kind of suit you should wear. But once you’ve established this, the next thing to consider is when the big day is. For a summer service, lighter colours may be more fitting. A waistcoat might also be a good idea, so you can take off a layer and still look smart. It is an extra piece, but comfortable, and it can still be linen, so choose a linen waistcoat too.
A Beige Linen Suit is the safe choice

What is your role at the wedding?
If you’re the groom, you’re probably in for the most work when it comes to finding your suit, as you may need to find suits for your groomsmen as well (if you have them). You need to decide if you wish to wear the same as your groomsmen or stand out from them. You may choose to coordinate by wearing the same suits but with different tie colours, for example. You might also want to coordinate your look with the father of the bride somehow. Once you have decided on the general style and fabric for your suit, it’s time to figure out the finer details. This could include lapel style, the fit of the suit, or details on the buttons and sleeves.
When it comes to lapels, you can generally choose from notch, peak or shawl. Notch or peak lapels are great if you’re after a more formal look, whereas shawl lapels are sleek and modern. If you are a guest at a Summer wedding, you could create a light, fresh look with shawl lapels and a pale fabric like our ‘Ibiza’ linen.
Though suit shopping may seem daunting at first, once you know the basics it isn’t so difficult. The main things to think about are when and where the wedding is, what your role is and how you want your suit to coordinate with others’. Above all else, make sure you feel confident and at your best in your suit! There are plenty of online tools that can help you get an idea of what you’re after, and of course, if you visit a specialist store you will be given assistance in tweaking the final details.
Afraid of heat?
It is normal, and you should be. Sometimes, even if the wedding takes place at dawn it can be that temperatures are still too high. First of all, you have to know that linen is a very lightweight and breathable fabric that will help you regulate your body temperature. And in addition, we recommend you to choose "unlined" extra for the suit jacket. You will find that option at accents. You will have a really comfortable jacket, even more breathable and light.
