Linen. 

White linen pants and a button down top, or a linen suit.

Becca71091:  ummm well I mean you can get linen pants from a lot of places, but suits prob not so much. when is your wedding? its a summer fabric so most stores tend to not sell as much come fall and winter. i would google linen pants or linen suit look through pictures of what style you like etc and then look for places that sell it. I know my FI has a pair of linen pants from banana republic, but moving into fall now I doubt you would find them in store.

My BIL wore cacky shorts (but the long cargo short type) and white linen shirt and white adidas sneakers.  They were married on a beach in Hawaii.

we got married in july in jamiaca and my husband wore linen pants, linen vest, white button down and a tiffany blue tie.

we ended up getting the linen pants and vest at a macys sale for 89 bucks total.  it was perry ellis brand.  They held up awesome, easy to wash/press and they survived our TTD shoot in the rocks and beach.

Becca71091:  I think the standard is kakhi’s and white linnen shirt look.  However, that look is so not my DH, so instead he bought a beautiful blue suit in a tropical weight wool.  Basically, looks like a  normal suit but the fabric is especailly appropriate for warm climates.

He wore it with a white shirt, no tie, and brown leather dress shoes and belt.  He looked excellent! 😀  (Oh, and we had a DW in Mexico on the beach, so similar situation).

We got married in Kauai in June of this year – my hubby wore linen pants, white button down shirt (sleeves rolled up), linen vest, and green tie.  We bought these items (except for the tie) at Men’s Wearhouse.   It was the perfect dressy (but not formal) look we were going for for our Hawaiian beach wedding.

OP, I personally do not like the look a of a bride decked out in wedding attire with all the hair makeup jewelry, etc but the groom is in casual linens.

If u r wearing a casual loose dress, then go with casual linens for him. But if u dressing to the nines, get groom to wear a vested suit with jacket and tie or at least vest, tie and slacks, that way u two will somewhat match. 

And I’m sorry but i think a tuxedo and bowtie on the beach looks ridiculous.

Becca71091:  you are very welcome.  I also recommended the same set to my friend and she just bought the suit jacket and pants from perry ellis direct and is VERY satisfied as well with the purchase.  I believe she went with the gray, where we went with the tan.  We caught a 20% off sale as well as the 25% off friends and family.  It was unbeatable!  We originally were looking at Tommy Bahamas (like 150 for pants!) and Mens wearhouse (150 as well) and mens wearhouse made us purchase before even trying on, and they would then have to be hemmed etc…So we weren’t too keen on it to be honest.  He was set on the tommy bahama pants until we by chance went into macys and found the linen separates there.  After he tried them on, we were SOLD and the price was unbeatable!  Good luck with the search!!! 😉

I dont have all my professional photos yet, so this is the only one i have showing the combo… haha.

ETA: they still sell them on macys.com too so keep an eye out 🙂 && HOLY CRAP – sorry the photo is so large!
