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.
These guayaberas and wedding shirts can be made to measure to accommodate big and tall sizes and to properly fit all of your groomsmen.
