What to Wear to a Yacht Wedding? [yacht club wedding attire]

Dressing for a yacht wedding can be both fun and challenging at the same time. On one hand, you have the opportunity to wear something unique and on the other hand, there are some definite do’s and don’ts when it comes to dressing for a yacht wedding. In this post, we’ll take a look at what to wear on land and what to bring with you when you’re cruising on the high seas!

Consider the time of year, weather, and location

When choosing what to wear to a yacht wedding, it’s important to consider the time of year, weather, and location. If the wedding is taking place in the summertime, you can wear lighter fabrics like cotton or linen. However, if the wedding is taking place in the fall or winter, you’ll want to opt for something a little warmer like wool or cashmere.

The weather will play a part in determining what you’ll wear to the wedding too. It can get very hot outside during the summer months, so something breezy would be appropriate. However, if it’s during the wintertime and there’s snow on the ground, opt for something heavy like down instead.

The location of the wedding is also important to consider. If the yacht is docked in a busy city, you’ll want to dress accordingly. However, if the yacht is sailing in open water, you can dress more casually.

Accessories

When it comes to accessories, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind. First, you’ll want to avoid wearing accessories that are too casual. This look will clash with the occasion’s dress code, so save your beach cover-up for another day.

Instead, opt for necklaces and earrings that are suitable for formal occasions. You can also wear bracelets if there aren’t any stipulations regarding visible body jewelry.

As for shoes, you’ll want to choose something dressy and elegant. If the wedding is taking place on land, you can wear heels. However, if the wedding is taking place on a yacht, it might be better to wear flats so you don’t have to worry about slipping and falling.

Choose a color scheme that matches your personality

When it comes to choosing a color scheme, you’ll want to think about your personality. If you’re the type of person who loves to stand out, you can choose a bold color like red or green. However, if you prefer to stick to neutrals, black, white, and gray are always safe choices.

No matter what color you choose to wear, you’ll want to make sure your outfit coordinates with the rest of the bridal party. If there’s a theme, try wearing colors that match it. For example, if the wedding has a nautical theme, blue and white would be appropriate.

Dress for comfort - this is a long day!

A yacht wedding can be a lot of fun, but it’s also a long day. You’ll want to dress for comfort, so choose something you’ll feel good in all day long. That might mean a flowy dress for women or a comfortable suit for men.

Choose a color that pops

Since you’ll be spending most of the day outside, it’s a good idea to choose a color that pops. This will make you stand out against the background of the ocean and the yachts. Bold colors like red, orange and yellow are perfect dresses for this type of wedding.

Be mindful of what you wear to avoid spills on your clothes or shoes

This seems like a really obvious tip, but the best way to keep your clothes from getting ruined is by simply dressing appropriately.

Don’t wear anything you particularly love if someone spills champagne on it, you will not be pleased! We recommend sticking to neutrals rather than going for bold colors or patterns that may easily pick up dirt or food stains. It’s the unfortunate truth that the risk of spills is high at a yacht wedding, so always dress accordingly.

But also keep in mind what you will be standing on

Wedding boats are usually on the smaller side, so they can get crowded quickly. Don’t wear heels that you can’t walk or stand in and watch where you step not only will you run the risk of falling, but for other reasons, we’ll discuss below.

Wear closed-toed shoes

You may find yourself standing on a boat deck all night long without ever getting into the water (and that’s great!), but there is always a possibility that your feet could get wet. 

Plus, there’s the chance you’ll be walking on slippery surfaces or in areas where there may be a lot of seaweed both of which are easier navigated with closed-toe shoes.

If you’re not into the idea of wearing anything other than your favorite pair of sandals, then go for it but you might want to bring a backup pair of shoes (and socks!) just in case.
