Beach Wedding Style: Capri Blue Attire Ideas

by Debra Torres on December 31, 2014

capri-blue-and-orange-beach-wedding-attire-and-style-ideas-debra-torres

 

A capri blue and orange beach wedding theme is colorful and playful.  Inspired by one of our real weddings for which we designed a custom guayabera for the groom with blue and orange accents, the mood inspiration board above shows some ways to incorporate capri blue and orange in your wedding attire and style.

We like the bridesmaids in capri blue dresses as a cornerstone of the style.  Consider bridesmaids as the foundation of the wedding style and therefore, the color of their attire should be a focal point.  The rest of the wedding style builds from there.  This will keep a cohesiveness to the style portrait you are creating.  The floral bouquet can include capri blue and orange as can the beach décor, table centerpieces, wedding cake, and reception decorations.  The wedding cake in the mood board is by Cake Impressions Photographic Studio and Gallery and the photo of the lantern decorations is by Charlotte Geary.

Once the attire for the bridesmaids is decided, its time to choose attire for the men.

There various outfits the groom or groomsmen can wear for a beach wedding, like linen suits, or vest and pant set with a colored tie, but one look that is fun, comfortable, and stylist for beach and destination weddings is guayabera attire.

The guayabera shirt is a man’s shirt worn in warm weather countries, like Cuban and Mexico.  It is also known as a shirtjack in the Caribbean.  Most often worn in linen since it is a breezy fabric, the shirtjack can also be made in cotton.  This shirt is a hybrid between a jacket and a shirt, and as such, lets the wearer look formal yet be comfortable and cool.

For tropical weddings, we typically recommend that the groom wear a long sleeve shirtjack and then the groomsmen can wear short sleeves or a different version of a long sleeve shirtjack.  But as you can see from the beach wedding photo above, a short sleeve shirtjack can also be worn when the style of wedding is more casual.

There are various types of guayaberas that can be worn for weddings.  Here are a few from our store:

First, we have the classic guayabera in poly cotton in short sleeves.  This is an economical shirt that works well for groomsmen on a budget.  There is a white version and an orange version that will work well with capri blue.

Another style of guayabera has two bottom pockets and embroidery.  Below we see it in white poly cotton with Capri blue embroidery.  It is a Mexican wedding shirt that is also available in a variety of other embroidery colors.

Another short sleeve guayabera that can work with this color scheme is the solid sky blue guayabera shirt below:

The above guayaberas come in standard sizes from XS to 3X, subject to availability.  You contact our online shop to check for sizes.

For more special options for the men in your wedding party, we have our designer guayabera shirts which are made individually in New York.

Some options for a capri blue and orange color scheme are the Nelson shirt, below on the left, which can be made with an orange trim (the photo below has a neutral tan trim.)  OR you can pick any one of our Debra Torres linen shirts and have it made in orange.  Below on the right is the David guayabera.

Beach Wedding Style: Peacock Blue Attire Ideas

by Debra Torres on December 30, 2014

peacock-blue-beach-wedding-style-and-attire-ideas-debra-torres

Peacock blue is a dark blue hue in the turquoise family that works really well as the primary color for a beach wedding.  Inspired by one of our real weddings that used the striking color throughout the décor, we created an inspiration mood board for a peacock themed beach or destination wedding.

Colors like David’s Bridal gem, marine, peacock, and oasis will work for the bridesmaids dresses.  And since this primarily color is so bold, it will work best if the men in the wedding party wear neutral colors: Guayabera shirts or Mexican wedding shirts for the men paired with cotton or linen pants in tan or light gray.

Guayaberas are called shirtjacks on the islands because they replace jackets in warm weather and still let men look formal.  For that same reason, shirtjacks are great as groom or groomsmen shirts for beach or island or tropical weddings.

Below we showcase various shirtjack options that would work with a peacock wedding:

One option for casual wedding shirts are the Mexican style guayaberas with a colored embroidery, like the ones below in tan or light gray.  These are made of poly cotton and are available in XS to 3X, subject to availability.

short-sleeve-mexican-wedding-shirt-white-and-light-graytan-khaki-mexican-wedding-shirt

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another beach wedding attire option is to choose a white linen or off-white linen guayabera shirt and pair it with tan khaki pants or gray pants.

Two options for your groom and groomsmen are here below:

long-sleeve-white-linen-guayabera-shirt-for-menshort-sleeve-white-linen-guayabera-shirt

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both of the guayabera shirts above are available in S through 3X, also subject to stock availability.

You can have the groomsmen wear the short sleeve version of the guayabera and have the groom wear the long sleeve guayabera.  Or have the groomsmen in the long sleeve guayabera and have the groom wear a fancier guayabera, like on of the ones here:

linen-guayabera-wedding-shirtguayabera Charles casual wedding shirt

Regardless of which one you choose, a shirtjack will be appropriate as a beach wedding shirt and will be more special than just a regular plain linen shirt.  Whether for island, beach, or destination weddings.

And the ones by Debra Torres are made individually in New York City, so they can be customized to accommodate sizes such as big and tall.

Beach Wedding Style: Navy Blue Attire Ideas

by Debra Torres on December 30, 2014

navy-and-peach-summer-wedding-style-and-attire-ideas-debra-torres

The color navy blue is one of the most stylish colors around.  It is preppy, elegant, and chic.  As a wedding color, navy blue works all year round.  And for summer, navy blue lends a nautical air that mixed with white or off-white is classic style perfection.  And with a third color like peach or even lime green as a complimentary accent, the color scheme of a summer wedding can be stand out.

The mood board above was inspired by one of our real summer garden weddings, but the same color scheme can be applied to a beach, tropical, or island wedding, destination or otherwise.  The father of the bride wore a navy blue long sleeve linen guayabera to walk his daughter down the aisle.  He matched his boutonierre to her wedding bouquet, balancing out the color scheme.  Guayaberas are called shirtjacks because they replace jackets in warm climates.  And as you can see in the photo from our real wedding, which took place in Arizona, the shirtjack helps the father of the bride look sophisticated without having to suffer in the heat.

For a wedding like this, we can imagine the bridesmaids wearing short navy cocktail dresses, accented by a peach flower.  Or even navy and white dresses with stripes or polka dots.  We envision the groomsmen attired in navy guayaberas or white guayaberas with a tan embroidery or white and navy mixed guayaberas.

Above are a short sleeve guayabera shirt in navy made of an easy to care r fabric.  The long sleeve white classic guayabera on the right is made of pima cotton.  Both shirts have standard sizes from S to 3X (subject to availability.)

Aside from solid colored shirts, another option is the Mexican wedding shirt style that has a colored embroidery.  Above are a peach embroidery and a tan embroidery on white cotton, two shirt options that will go well with a navy wedding color theme.

Lastly, we have designer quality guayaberas that can be made in navy linen.  They are individually made in New York City and can be made to measure.  The shirtjack on the left is the David.  It can be made in navy linen.  The shirtjack on the right is the Steve.  It has contrasting stripes.

Beach Wedding Style: Light Blue Attire Ideas

by Debra Torres on December 30, 2014

light-blue-beach-wedding-style-and-attire-ideas

Light blue attire for a celestial tone beach wedding is heavenly.  All you need is light blue, white or off-white, tan or light gray, and an optional fourth color as an accent, like peach or yellow.

In the inspiration mood board above, we have a real wedding where the groom wore one of our light blue linen shirts with khaki pants.  One of the beauties of having light blue as your wedding color when you are getting married on the beach, is that then the ocean becomes part of your wedding décor.  If light blue is your primary color, then the bridesmaids should be wearing light blue dresses.  Colors from David’s Bridal are Mist, Pool, Spa and Capri Blue.  For the groom and groomsmen, they can wear white or off-white guayabera shirts, light blue shirts, or a combination with tan or light gray emboirdery to match back to the men’s wedding pants or shorts.

Guayabera shirts or shirtjacks, since they can take the place of a jacket, are appropriate attire for beach or tropical weddings.  More often worn in linen since it’s cooler and dressier, shirtjacks make for ideal island wedding attire.  Here are some of the guayabera or shirtjack styles that we recommend for a light blue beach wedding color scheme:

short-sleeve-blue-guayabera-shirt-for-groomsmenlong-sleeve-poly-cotton-light-blue-guayabera-shirt

 

 

 

 

 

 

Solid sky blue guayabera shirts for your groomsmen can be short sleeve or long sleeve.  Short sleeve groomsmen shirts are the most casual while long sleeve adds more formality.  Choose long sleeve for the groom and short sleeve for the groomsmen to differentiate them.  This style is also available in kid’s sizes, for the short sleeve and long sleeve too.

If you prefer a colored accent embroidery and not the whole shirt in a color, try our Mexican wedding shirt style.  We recommend a tan khaki embroidery if the groomsmen are wearing khaki pants or the light gray embroidery if the groomsmen are wearing gray pants.

tan-khaki-mexican-wedding-shirt

short-sleeve-mexican-wedding-shirt-white-and-light-gray

 

 

 

 

 

 

Besides groomsmen shirts in cotton, there are also groomsmen shirts in linen, which offer a dressier option. Whether like the short sleeve classic guayabera below on the left or the tuxedo style shirt in linen on the right.

short-sleeve-light-blue-guayabera-shirt-linen casual-wedding-shirt-tuxedo-shirt

 

 

 

 

 

Linen guayaberas are the dressiest option for beach weddings.  They are cool and elegant.

Some of our guayaberas are standard sizes and some can be custom made to order.

Beach Wedding Style: Coral Attire Ideas

by Debra Torres on December 30, 2014

coral-beach-wedding-style-and-attire-ideas-debra-torres

The color coral is a beautiful tone for a beach wedding, and since we often get requests for coral beach wedding shirts, we put together an inspiration board for how to attire a beach wedding party with a coral theme.  To begin with, since coral is a strong color, it can stand alone.  Meaning, you don’t need a strong complimentary color to go with it.  You can match the coral with a soft shade like mint green or simply work with off-white/white or tan khaki for a well-rounded color scheme.  The bridesmaid dresses can be coral.  The David’s Bridal color collar reef is a nice option.  A shade of salmon is pretty too. Whether long bridesmaid dresses or short bridesmaid dresses are worn, depends on the girls and how formal you want them to look.  Coral should be weaved throughout the wedding, in the flowers, ceremony decorations, and cake.

For the men in your beach wedding party, we suggest dressing them in neutral tones to compliment with the bold coral color.

One option for casual wedding shirts are the Mexican style guayaberas with a colored embroidery, like the ones below in tan or light gray.  These are poly cotton guayaberas and there are more embroidery colors on our website.

short-sleeve-mexican-wedding-shirt-white-and-light-graytan-khaki-mexican-wedding-shirt

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another beach wedding attire option is to choose a white linen or off-white linen guayabera shirt and pair it with tan khaki pants or gray pants.

Two options for your groom and groomsmen are here below:

long-sleeve-white-linen-guayabera-shirt-for-menshort-sleeve-white-linen-guayabera-shirt

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both of the guayabera shirts above are available in S through 3X, subject to stock availability.

You can have the groomsmen wear the short sleeve version of the guayabera and have the groom wear the long sleeve guayabera.  Or have the groomsmen in the long sleeve guayabera and have the groom wear a fancier guayabera, like on of the ones here:

Regardless of which one you choose, a guayabera (also known as a shirtjack) will be appropriate as a beach wedding shirt and will be more special than just a regular plain linen shirt.  Whether for island, beach, or destination weddings.

And the ones by Debra Torres are made individually in New York City, so they can be customized to accommodate sizes such as big and tall.

Beach Wedding Style: Lime Green Attire Ideas

by Debra Torres on December 29, 2014

Lime-Green-Beach-Wedding-Attire-and-Style-Ideas

Lime green and hot pink beach wedding attire is fun and sexy.  It is a way to get your wedding party started with style.  In the mood inspiration board above, we show groomsmen in our Debra Torres green custom guayabera shirts worn with white drawstring pants.  The groom stands alone in a white linen guayabera, also custom made. The groom’s shirt was long sleeves, while the groomsmen shirts were short sleeve.  That’s one way of separating the groom from the groomsmen. The bridesmaids are wearing a short dress in a hot pink color.  The flowers mix hot pink and green and those colors are woven throughout the decorations.  The starfish are from xoedge.com.

The lime green and hot pink color theme is great for the beach, but also for summer weddings.  Or any island, tropical or destination wedding.  Different shades of pink can be aired with different shades of pink: like mint green or meadow green with baby pink or olive green and petal pink or apple green with coral or salmon.  Pink shades like ballet pink, parfait, and guava from David’s bridal are versions of pink that can be paired with a shade of green.  And the green and pink can be switched up between the women’s and the men’s beach wedding attire.

For beach wedding shirts for men, we have an assortment available on our website. Below are options that would match with lime green and hot pink:

Cotton Mexican wedding shirts in white with hot pink embroidery or lime green embroidery

lime-green-mexican-wedding-shirtmexican-wedding-shirt-hot-pink-embroidery

 

 

 

 

 

 

The above shirts are white polyester cotton with lime green embroidery and hot pink embroidery respectively.  These Mexican wedding shirts are fun, budget conscious options for your groomsmen.  They are available in sizes XS to 3X, subject to stock availability.  We also have tan khaki pants and shorts in a dressy fabric as well as in linen drawstring to pair with the casual wedding shirts, to complete the attire for the men in your wedding party.

White guayabera shirts, whether short sleeve or long sleeve, are also a good option for your groom and groomsmen.  They are more traditional and have more wearability for later occasions.  Here are two guayabera shirts in poly cotton, but they are also available in pima cotton.

Beach Wedding Style: Olive Green Attire Ideas

by Claire Bough on December 27, 2014

Olive-Green-Beach-Wedding-Attire-and-Style-Ideas

Shades of green are a part of nature.  They are a nice choice to use for a beach wedding, if the beach has green leafy tones in it.  Olive green in particular, with its darker tone, reads as formal and sophisticated.  We created the above inspiration board to show how green can be used in the attire and décor of a natural beach wedding.

The groomsmen are wearing custom made off-white linen guayabera shirts.  While the groom is wearing a tan suit.  He later changed into a guayabera.  Their green boutonieres weave the color green back into the attire.  The attire chosen by the groomsmen is a neutral choice that can actually work with many wedding color themes.  The same shirt, or other Debra Torres linen guayabera from our website, can be made in allover linen like in the upper left corner.

The bridesmaid dress is a long flowy style which has a beachy feel.  Remember that the green tones don’t have to be exact between bridesmaid dress and men’s choice of attire, as long as they are in the same family. But the main color should be balanced out throughout the décor like the cake, bouquet, and location decorations.  Dark green dresses are available at David’s Bridal in tones like tarragon, but olive green guayaberas will match nicely with lighter tones like clover too.

Below are some options that the men in your wedding party can wear as part of their beach wedding attire:

tan-khaki-mexican-wedding-shirt olive-green-mexican-wedding-shirt

 

 

 

 

 

 

The above Mexican wedding shirts come in various embroidery colors, but we like either a tan embroidery to be a complimentary color to green bridesmaid dresses or we recommend an olive green embroidery as the accent.  These shirts come in sizes XS to 3X and are subject to availability.

For a designer guayabera shirt, we have our Debra Torres line of shirts.  Two styles below show some of the guayaberas that can be made in an olive green linen.

cuban-guayabera-shirt linen-guayabera-shirt-marco

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Mack long sleeve guayabera is a classic destination wedding shirt in white, but it can also be made in the olive green of the guayabera on the right.  The rolled up sleeve guayabera Marco is sporty and relaxed for a beach groom or groomsmen.  These Debra Torres shirts are individually made in NYC and so can be made to measure.  We can accommodate big and tall sizes too.

Guayaberas are appropriate attire for a summer or island tropical wedding.  Also known as a shirtjack in the Caribbean, the guayabera is an informal shirt that is formal at the same time.  Long sleeve is more elegant and short sleeve is more casual.  Linen is more dressy, but cotton can also be worn.  They are great options as part of your men’s beach wedding attire.

Beach Wedding Style: Burgundy Wine Attire Ideas

by Debra Torres on December 27, 2014

Burgundy-Wine-Beach-Wedding-Style-and-Attire-Ideas

The color burgundy or wine is a rich style choice for a wedding, specially a beach wedding.  It conveys style, sophistication and a Latin kind of passion, like the color sangria.  Burgundy is a deep tone as a primary color and can stand on its own against white and a neutral like tan for a balanced color wedding theme.  Burgundy or wine are strong tones that look good on men and so we recommend burgundy or wine colored guayaberas as destination wedding shirts.  Our shade of burgundy is like red meets purple and while it may not be exact to a shade from David’s Bridal or Dessy, it plays well with other colors in the purple family.  Our burgundy also functions like a deep neutral, so it can match nicely with tan or gray bridesmaid dresses.  Also remember that if the primary color of your wedding is burgundy, white or off-white guayaberas can always be tied back to the burgundy wine through the use of a boutonniere.

The inspiration mood board above shows one of our real weddings where the groom wore a burgundy accented linen guayabera.  Also on the upper left is one of our brides with her father wearing a burgundy wine linen guayabera.  We love the look of white flowers like orchids with an all burgundy guayabera.  The cake design is by Elizabeth Ann Designs.

Below we show you some beach or destination wedding shirt styles that can work for your groom and groomsmen in a burgundy or wine color scheme:

First, there are some cotton burgundy guayaberas:

daccord-short-sleeve-red-wine-burgundy-guayabera-shirt

long-sleeve-poly-cotton-guayabera-burgundy-wine

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even though the colors are different in the images, they shade is the same in real life.  We recommend requesting one to match color.  The short sleeve guayabera is a little more casual and good for groomsmen.  The long sleeve guayabera can be for the groomsmen for them to be more dressy or the groom can wear the long sleeve version and the groomsmen can wear the short sleeve guayabera shirt.

As a second option, below we have a two pocket embroidered guayabera in the Mexican wedding shirt tradition:

short-sleeve-red-wine-burgundy-and-white-cotton-mexican-wedding-shirt

This burgundy short sleeve Mexican wedding shirt looks best with white pants.  All the three options above are available in sizes XS to 3X, subject to availability.

For designer guayabera options, we can do any of our all linen shirts in a burgundy linen like the one in the mood board that we made for one of our father of the bride clients.  Below are two of our most popular styles that can be made in burgundy wine:

cuban-guayabera-shirtlinen-guayabera-shirt-david

 

 

 

 

 

 

The guayabera shirt Mack is the long sleeve option on the left.  The guayabera David shirt is on the right.  Both shirts can be made in burgundy linen but they are also great beach wedding shirts in white or off-white linen.  These linen shirts are made to order and can be made to specialized measurements.  Which allows us to accommodate big and tall sizes.

Above were some of our linen and cotton wine beach wedding shirts that will work for island, beach, and tropical weddings.  For more beach wedding attire options for men, visit our website at www.debratorres.com.

Beach Wedding Style: Peach Attire Ideas

by Debra Torres on December 27, 2014

Peach-Beach-Wedding-Style-and-Attire-Ideas

When you are planning a beach wedding, the color peach is a soft, feminine option to use as the primary wedding color.  This color should weave its way through the various style aspects of the wedding: like the attire.  In the above inspiration board, we show ways to incorporate a peach theme into the wedding attire, decorations and floral arrangements of a beach wedding.

Beginning with the beach wedding attire, the color Peach from David’s Bridal is a light shade that can be used for the bridesmaid dresses.  It is good to pick the shade of the bridesmaids dresses first and then work on the men’s attire.  Solid colors are easier to match, but prints are fun and more interesting.  Peach and light green are nice colors to mix together in the attire for the beach wedding party. A darker peach like apricot is nice too.

When thinking about the beach wedding attire for the men, you should think about the following:  what will the groom wear? what will the groomsmen wear? do they wear the same thing or something different? should they wear suits or wear shirts and pants? There are many ways to mix and match.

For the men in the wedding party, you can help them feel relaxed by letting them wear Mexican wedding style shirts or guayaberas.  And pair these shirts to tan or light gray pants.  If you choose tan pants, make sure the other tones throughout the wedding are warm.  If you choose light gray pants, make sure the tones throughout the wedding are silver or cool.  You can always have the groom wear a tan linen or cotton suit and change into a guayabera for the party.

At Debra Torres, we offer an array of beach wedding apparel and accessories for tropical weddings.  Our Debra Torres linen shirts, like the David, Mack, and Marion, can be made to order in peach.  These are great if you want a high-end shirt for your wedding.  We also have more budget conscious options with our D’accord short sleeve guayaberas which are available in various colors to help you coordinate the wedding party attire.

Here are some options from you to choose from:

short-sleeve-cotton-white-guayabera-shirt-for-groomsmendaccord-long-sleeve-pima-cotton-white-guayabera

 

 

 

 

 

 

Above are two classic guayaberas that work really well for groomsmen.  The white guayaberas work with most wedding colors.  Just have the men wear boutonierres in peach.  The short sleeve guayabera is poly cotton and is $48.  It is also available on our website in long sleeve for $50.  The long sleeve guayabera above is made of pima cotton, a nicer quality 100% cotton.  This style is available in short sleeves too.

Next we have a popular shirt style for beach weddings, in the Mexican wedding style tradition.  The shirt is always white but the embroidery comes in a variety of colors.  Below we show the embroidery in light gray, tan, peach, and olive green:

short-sleeve-mexican-wedding-shirt-white-and-light-gray

tan-khaki-mexican-wedding-shirt

olive-green-mexican-wedding-shirtpeach-mexican-wedding-shirtpeach-mexican-guayabera-shirt

The above shirts are standard shirts available in sizes XS to 3X, subject to stock availability.

For a designer quality shirt option for the men, we have our made to order Debra Torres guayabera shirts.

Below are the James shirt on the left and the Dominick shirt on the right.  Both can be made to measure and are available in white or off-white linen.

guayabera-wedding-shirt-jameslinen-guayabera-wedding-shirt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To bring the peach wedding theme full circle, include peach colored flowers in the bouquets and arrangements, design a peach colored wedding cake, and add peach in the ceremonial decorations.

Beach Wedding Style: Lilac Attire Ideas

by Debra Torres on December 26, 2014

lilac-beach-wedding-attire-and-style-ideas

The color lilac for a beach wedding is a stylish option that lends an air of tranquility and serenity to a destination wedding.  In this inspiration board, we look at a beach wedding color theme of lilac and periwinkle and white worn by one our real wedding parties.  The groomsmen wore Debra Torres guayabera shirts in lilac, the groom wore one of our long sleeve white guayaberas, and the bridesmaids wore periwinkle dresses.

Light purple is one of those colors that men can easily wear and still feel masculine.  These groomsmen selected our guayabera Manny in lilac linen, a very wearable short sleeve guayabera.  They paired their lilac guayaberas with white pants which match back to the groom’s all white outfit.  The bridesmaids wore periwinkle dresses, like the ones above from the Dessy Group.  You can also look at iris or wisteria from David’s Bridal.  Lilac and periwinkle make a beautiful combination as they are colors in the same family.  However, light purple can also easily be paired with light gray as a neutral complimentary color.

We have men’s beach wedding attire options at our online store.  Here are some shirts that will work for the men in your wedding party:

Short sleeve guayaberas in white and in light purple:

Short sleeve Mexican wedding shirts with light gray embroidery and with light purple embroidery:

On the left is the short sleeve guayabera Manny and on the right is the long sleeve guayabera Mack.  These are modern guayaberas inspired by Cuban tradition.  They can be made to measure or you can pick a standard size between XS and 3X.  With our custom program, we can accodomate big and tall sizes as well.

So if you are looking for a lilac guayabera or an iris or wisteria men’s linen shirt, the Manny or the Mack can be made in a light purple shade to match.
