Boutonniere Inspiration for a beach wedding groom

We’re lucky to see many stylish grooms at Suncoast Weddings. Traditional boutonnieres work well at a beach wedding, although sometimes running with the seashore theme can lead to unique and memorable details. With so much planning and so many details coming together for the big day, here is a dash of inspiration for the groom-to-be.

Seashells on the sea shore

Delicate and so varied, choose from bold to subtle, and scalloped to spiral. Seashells are reasonably priced and naturally enchanting.

The one that didn’t get away

This lure is a super creative accessory for the groom that loves to fish or perhaps a nod to the fact there will be two less fish in the sea

Exotic elements

From orchids to lilies and peacock feathers to succulents, there are so many ways to add color and charisma to your beach wedding day.

Florida Beach Wedding Grooms

Brides have so many choices when it comes to wedding dresses and the good news for everyone is that when it comes to a beach wedding, really anything goes! It’s up to you and the vision you have for your day. We’re constantly asked what the grooms like to wear…. here’s the Suncoast Weddings Inside Scoop on the fashion and style we see for the leading man on the day.

You can go formal or casual – both look great on the beach. If it is summertime, maybe the heat of the day may influence the choice of fabric.

If you are wearing a tie, bow tie or waistcoat, it’s a great way to tie in your colors to the theme of the wedding.




Increasingly, brides are choosing different colors for dresses so that is also a great way to integrate a new color into the groom’s wardrobe.

Most of our grooms opt for shirts without a jacket or waistcoat. A classic look, smart yet comfortable.

Waistcoats and jackets without a tie are also a popular choice

When wearing a suit, it’s easier to wear much lighter colors at the beach that at a traditional wedding.

Or even embrace the ‘aloha’ spirit and go colorful!

The mini equivalent to the bouquet – the boutonniere worn by the groom is a chance to really show your style and be unique. We love seeing the beach themes brought by our grooms – starfish, shells. There is an opportunity to embrace the setting and keep a momento forever to remind you of this special day.

Especially with the sunshine on the beach, peacock feathers look particularly striking.

Shoes are entirely optional – and you can always wear shoes down the aisle and then go barefoot for the photos if you like. We have a sign which is very popular where guests are invited to be ‘barefoot past this point’ or ‘Shoes here, vows there, love everywhere’. Everyone can kick off their sandals, flip flops or high heels and feel the sand between their toes ..

If you are a superhero on a rare day off, we suggest channeling your powers in a subtle way 🙂


Whatever you decide, we know it will be perfect – on the day and in the magical pictures afterwards. When you’re in love and wearing a smile, you can’t go wrong.

Let’s get planning!
