Groom and Groomsmen Tamarindo Wedding Attire
There are many trends and endless ideas for the attire of the groomsmen and groom. However, there is something different about getting married in Tamarindo; there is something here that allows you to be a bit more eclectic, funky, fun and yet you can still be traditional and formal. Because the locations here are endless (formal outdoor beachfront luxury private home to local Costa Rican restaurant), the options for attire become endless.
Below are some ideas of dress for the groom and groomsmen in the wedding party, from formal, semi-formal, which I also like to call, “tropical chic”, to casual. I’ve also added a little note to each, on how to “mix it up” a bit, adding a little something special or different.
A grey suit, collared shirt, tie and a pair of brown or black shoes. A tux is not common, although we have seen it and it looks great, but a formal wedding at the beach in Tamarindo is just a little more understated than a formal wedding in, say, the States. Remember it’s hot here!
Mix it up
Consider adding a brightly colored tie and/or a bright floral boutonniere.
Wear a pair of Vans or Converse sneakers.
Another suit option would be seersucker.
Add a pair of suspenders.
Roll up the cuffs of your pants.
Instead of a boutonniere, maybe a lei.
And don’t forget about the little ring bearer. He could wear a mini version of whatever the groomsmen and groom are wearing, but consider some super fun accessories…
He could hold a sign saying, “Here Comes the Bride”.
Instead of a traditional pillow, what about a pillow made of flowers OR a piece of driftwood
For the groom and groomsmen, ideas are endless when it comes to attire and accessories. Most importantly, it’s important to be comfortable and feel good in what you’re wearing!!
