Bridal magazines and the fashion glossies make it very easy for women to pick and choose what to wear for Cyprus beach weddings – from footwear to how to wear your hair, the ladies are well taken care of. But what about the gentlemen?
Unless it is black tie, the suit can stay hanging up in the wardrobe, the expert said.
A lightweight suit made with cotton or linen with an unconstructed line is better for a beach wedding as these options are cooler. And when it comes to choosing a colour, pale greys, blues and neutrals are a good option.
Once the suit is sorted, then you can start thinking about what to put on your feet, but do not be tempted to swap a proper shoe for a flip-flop, Urbinati said.
Sandals are too casual, instead a neutral lace-up without socks is a good way to go, but avoid heavy fabrics like suede. Loafers also work well.
Finally, a touch of the formal without risking looked overdressed is to pick either a good tie or a nice pocket square – one or the other, not both.
A beach wedding indicates a more laidback dress code unless specified, but it is still a wedding, so a nod to formality in the form of a chic pocket square or a simple tie, which can be loosened in the evening, is ideal.
