Beach Wedding Guest Attire

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am having a destination wedding. I will be in white of course and FH in khaki shorts and white shirt. I originally thought to have guest wear khaki shorts and white tips since ot looks so clean in photos on beach.I am getting feedback from guest that they would prefer to wear colored sundresses instead. I want everyone to be happy and excited more than pics looking a certain way. Any color or ideas? Pastels?? Or should I be bride and make them do it.

Congrats!!! Wedding planning is exciting!

 

I think its nice to have your bridal party all matchy matchy but I personally think you should let your guest wear whatever. You want them to be comfortable! It will be hot and every person has different comfort levels. As well as some people cant pull off certain colours etc.  :)

@@lilumpkin - We are not requiring our guests to wear anything in particular. More of the guys have asked us what we would like them to wear, and we are fine with polos or short sleeve button-ups and a nice pair of shorts or pants. (Though I doubt many people would wear pants.) Ladies are easier because most will wear dresses. We want our guests to be comfortable. If they are happy, then we are happy. :)

I always get a kick out of this topic bc I've never been told what to wear to weddings and I've never heard any family/friend brides discuss guests attire aside from DW brides on here. Reminds me of like uniforms. My man in me dancing in identical outfits hahaha ok I'll stop. Sorry I mean well. Just in need of a laugh!

I also don't get the whole thing of dictating what they wear. We just asked for no swim suits and for those who wanted more we said anything you'd wear to a nice restaurant. Our men wore shorts so of course that was ok for our guests. Most people have brains enough to know what is acceptable or not. Thinking back though we had quite a few of the older men in pants. They must have been dying as it was hotter than hell out. Lol.

I did my ceremony at 3pm.   I had planned to do it at 330pm but I was worried if they ran late starting that we wouldn't have enough time to get our photos in before the sun set at 530pm.      We definately had enough time, but you know Murphy's Law. Honestly though, even at 330pm and 400pm it was still as hot as heck and sunny!

 

We were in the palapa when the sun set -- there was no air flow in there once the wind died down, so we were pretty hot.

 

So to be honest, it was hot the entire night, if it wasn't for the breeze off the ocean we would have died.   Sorry I am really no help.

 

Edit: I did bring cardigans to Mexico just in case and didn't use them. I was never cold.

I've only traveled Jan-April.

We are not having a wedding party, so essentially all of our guests are the wedding party. We are planning to ask everyone to wear blue because it will look nice in pictures. We will not be picky about what shade of blue.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
