Talking about dresses, it is recommended to use fresh and light fabrics, like cotton, linen or satin.

It is also the possibility to have a lot of wind during the beach wedding day. In this case, it is important to choose a dress with a long or kind of heavy skirt, or the style you feel more comfortable.

For the suit, it is recommended to use comfy and fresh fabric, like cotton or linen.

A very popular option in Beach Weddings is a “guayabera” and beige linen pants.

Beach Weddings - Type of Fabric

Type of shoes

If what you want to is to go with high heels, I do not recommend you a thin one.

Thin high heels get stucked on sand and will make you feel a uncomfortable moment; we recommend you to use thick or flatform heels.

Beach weddings are the best ally if you do not like to use high heels, because you can always go with sandals or formal shoes, and you will still look incredible.

For men, the best footwear are the classic formal shoes. Colors does not matter, the most combinable colors are black and brown.

If you are looking for more comfort, you can use white or black sneakers.
