The talented and stylish team behind the menswear brand Bellissimo Regno are helping us prepare our groomsmen style for when we can make our blissful return to beautiful and balmy, beach-bash weddings. Take note now!
Groomsmen or brides-men have the critical job of supporting their friend on his or her special day. From being there for them through the nervous breakdowns about the wedding to planning and participating in the activities. They have to do it all! These loyal men are so important in terms of support and friendship. This makes the role even more indispensable. It is as vital for the groomsmen and bridesmaids to look their best on the big day as it is for the groom. The former complements the latter not only in terms of the wedding photographs, but also for the aesthetics of the event.
(Usually) summer brings in an influx of beach weddings. The splendid sunsets, the soft sand and the glistening ocean as the milieu, it is a dream location. Beach weddings tend to have a more relaxed vibe. Breathable attire is a must when it comes to summer weddings and especially those on the beach because the last thing you want is people looking hot and sweaty in all of the wedding photos. Here are some exclusive insights into some stylish looks the groomsmen can adorn to dapper on the day.
Being a summer beach wedding, men should ideally go for light linen shirts. Not only does it fall right in the middle of the line between a formal look and an informal attire but also provides a sense of elegance to the entire outfit,
White is the go-to colour for summer and beach weddings. A crisp, white linen shirt with a pair of smart pants or even a traditional white Italian suit will be sure to complement the groom or bride at the holy matrimony. Cream, khaki are also good options to wear aside from white as they are all neutral shades which complete the casual vibe of the occasion.

Dark colours attract heat, and as the companions of the groom, the groomsmen definitely wouldn’t want to be a sweaty mess even before the wedding commences. Colours like light blue, light pink and slightly tan colours add to the vibe of the beach wedding as well as to the airiness of the attire. Groomsmen coordinated in these vibrant colours will be a wonderfully appealing sight to witness as well as in photographs.

The Suspender Look
Adorning a pair of complementary suspenders on a neat light-coloured shirt with a matching bow-tie and coordinated broaches are a great way to accessorise a simple outfit and make it look incredibly chic. A hat along with the suspenders could also make for a fashionable beach wedding statement.
The No-Tie Look
The no-tie look is also a way to make a suit look less formal and more suited for a summer beach wedding. Forgoing neckwear entirely and going for a collarless shirt or an unbuttoned one is also a great option.
A Bohemian Look
Going for a slightly Bohemian look with rustic colours in a unique shirt and possibly a waistcoat adds to the vibrancy of the wedding. The groom and his groomsmen will stand out even more on wearing a chic Boho suit.

Socks are a big no-no for a beach wedding. However, if the groomsmen are more comfortable in socks, then they should surely go-for no-show socks. Coming to shoes, boat shoes or loafers are a comfortable yet fashionable touch to the whole look. Some of the colours of shoes that go well with the beach wedding ambience are usually lighter shades of brown, tan, cream or other light-coloured options. Black Shoes ideally shouldn’t be the shoes of choice for the casual atmosphere.
A beach wedding may be a casual affair. However, groomsmen can look at accessories like pocket squares, sunglasses, watches and lapel pins to amp their look a notch.
Wedding photographs are the memories the couple holds dearest to their hearts for a long time to come. Therefore, it is essential for the groomsmen as well as the bridesmaids to complement the blessed pair to make not only the union a special one, but the memories associated with it as well.
Beach weddings are one-of-a-kind and once-in-a-lifetime experience for the bride and groom and their families as well as those attending it. With some of the tips given above, the groomsmen can completely steal the show on this beautiful day!
