Having a summer wedding? You’re probably picturing bright blossoming flowers, breezy floral-printed gowns paired with chic strappy heels, heat-friendly beachy wave hairstyles, and refreshing ice-cold cocktails. But have you started thinking about what your groom and his wedding party will wear? Khaki shorts definitely aren’t an option for an elegant affair! Not to worry – our friends at Be Inspired PR gathered expert input from the team behind Generation Tux to put together your summer wedding fashion checklist for men. Read on to make sure you’re getting everything you need to keep your guys feeling – and looking! – cool.

First things first: the material matters. “When most people think of wool, they think of warm fabric, but a proper suit or tuxedo made of super 130’s and 140’s Merino Wool is actually lightweight and breathable. The natural fiber is much cooler than a cheaper synthetic fiber like polyester.”

Second, mix up your look to match your style and lower your temp. “It’s totally okay to ditch the tie and free up your collar for a summer wedding. Your neck will thank you – as will everyone standing closest to you since this can significantly cut down on opportunities to stink up with sweat!”

Third, make smart choices to avoid sweat while still fitting your dress code. “Skip the vest and go with a nice suit jacket and pants with a classic nice white shirt. It’s the perfect semi-formal look for your summer affair!”

Finally, take advantage of the ability to embrace variety. “Suits and tuxedos come in a variety of colors and styles, so don’t settle for something you’re not excited about. Build the perfect look for your summer wedding while embracing different fabrics, colors, and fashion trends in what you choose. Consider a handsome taupe suit rather than classic black to keep to cooler colors, or opt for modern prints to bring a vibrancy to your style.”

Ultimately, the goal should be to make sure the guys in your wedding look great, without feeling the heat too much! If you pay attention to these pro tips, you’ll have the summer wedding of your dreams while avoiding the chances of becoming a sweaty mess!
