    What color guayabera is the groom wearing? These come in different colors, and some are more formal than others. Always worn untucked.
    Not sure at the moment– I think its white.

    And if you go with flip flops, make sure they're leather rather than foam rubber. While I don't shop there for anything else, American Eagle actually has very reasonably priced leather flip flops ($25-30) in a variety of colors/styles. They charge half of what other people charge.

    The ones with the white suede straps look good if you don't mind a canvas foot bed. Otherwise, they have several other great options in leather foot beds.

    And if you're not typically a flip flop wearer and have long toes, consider sizing up. Otherwise you might be hanging off the front.

    Not a bad suggest– I really am not a sandal guy. Especially flipflops. I think its the sound they make that I can't stand.

For the beach, I'd probably cuff the trousers and roll the sleeves up on the shirt, but I'd tuck the shirt in because, y'know, I have standards.

    I feel like long-sleeved is better in this case because you can maintain at least a modicum of formality and, in case you feel yourself baking, you can always roll down the sleeves and flip up the collar to protect yourself from the tropical summer sun.
    This is a great suggestion. I like this look alot. Here's what I was eyeballing online:

    Linen shirt, pinstripe or classic plain white:


    Almond linen/cotton pants:


    The shirt is still a slim fit, because the normal fit makes me look like I am swimming in it.
    You guys are awesome. Really really appreciate all the help.

    Dear Tremperj,

    If you are not in the party, then I would say what you have would be appropriate. If you are in the party, I'd wear a guayabera.

    Not in the party, just a close friend! Excellent.
