Hip Tip - Beach Wedding Dress Code

With more and more couples forgoing the standard church wedding and opting for a beach wedding instead... it's hard to know what to wear.  Beaches generally mean a more casual setting but not always.

Black Tie or Black Tie Optional

The line black tie optional suggests a formal beach wedding, usually in the evening. Women should wear a long formal dress. Dark grays, browns, navies, purples, burgundies or greens are appropriate color choices. Men should wear a dark suit and tie. A black tie wedding indicates tuxedos for men and long black formal dresses for women.

Beach Formal

Though still a formal dress code, this lets in a little wiggle room for guests when it comes to color and style. Vibrant colors for both men and women will look wonderful at a beach wedding. Bright blues, reds, purples or corals are appropriate in formal shirts, ties and dresses.

Dressy Casual

A dressy casual request often indicates a more informal look. Tea-length sundresses are perfect for women, while men can wear a linen suit or dress shirt and slacks and still look appropriate.
