sea-side groom

Let your groom's posse get their surfing style on for the big day! Beach weddings are a chance for the lads of the day to stray from the classic black and white three-piece and have a bit of fun with their look!

Embrace the palette of your chosen location and choose suits in natural shades of cream, fawn and pastel blues (no, not that powder blue ruffle blouse ensemble your dad has up in the roof) . Surf the world wide web for inspiring outfits worn by the suave likes of Scott Dissick and Ed Westwick ala Chuck Bass. Damn, can those boys rock a suit! 

Going for a more casual affair? Break up the boys outfits with coloured suit jackets and a pair of chinos paired with some cute boat shoes or white Converse. Look for suits with thin stripes in pastel greens and team it with a frangipani boutonnierre. Or go for a more nautical feel and let your groom rock out in a blue and white striped blazer, red plimsoles and optional captain's hat (maybe not). 

Nothing beats a cute boy in a hat! Sun-smart and adorable, grab some matching trilby hats in sandy tones and you'll see the gents' inner gangsters shine through up on that alter!

Preppy inspired campaigns provide some great ideas and colour combinations. Look for inspiration through Calvin Klein's polo pages, Hugo Boss classics and Jack London's daring patterned blazer range.
