Of course much attention is paid to the bride and her gown, but who is also walking with her down the aisle? It can be very difficult deciding on the appropriate attire for the Father of the Bride, especially for a casual wedding. One must seek to obtain both the formality appropriate to complement the bride’s gown, but also highlight the specialness and warmth that just about every father possesses. The guayabera, with its casual and sophisticated air, is a great choice.
The Perfect Shirt for the Father of the Bride: The Guayabera Since many grooms choose the classic white guayabera for their casual or beach wedding, the father of the bride might want to try a pop of color. Below is a picture of Father of the Bride Doug Hunt, from Arizona, walking his daughter Cathy down the aisle at her outdoor wedding. Doug went with a beautiful navy linen guayabera shirt, the Guayabera Marion, with a boutonnierre matching his daughter’s wedding bouquet. What a great look!

Aside from looking chic, another great reason to choose a linen guayabera or Mexican Wedding Shirt is that this classic summer shirt is a timeless piece that can be worn for years after the ceremony! There is something so great about being able to put on an article of clothing that immediately brings back such wonderful memories like a daughter’s wedding, an event sure to rank amongst the most special days of a father’s life.
