So, a long-sleeved button up with the same is still dorky? ‘Cause that’s what I was going to suggest lol

A light-colored suit. Maybe linen? Or seersucker?

Short sleeve shirts with ties look terrible.

I dont think a shirt and tie looks dorky at all! But if you want something different maybe have him wear a nice pair of slacks, button up shirt no tie and linen jacket

@jayelcee85: Short sleeves and ties remind me of used car salesmen.

How about a light colored or linen suit with a nice shirt and no tie.

Or possibly wear a tie for the ceremony and take it off for the reception.

I would still go with a long sleeved shirt and tie.  He can always roll up his sleeves post ceremony if the heat gets to him.

@Theresa90405: Love men in linen and seersucker in the summer!

I agree with the PPs – if you want to be a bit dressier, go with a linen or seersucker suit.  Otherwise, dress slacks, a long sleeved button up shirt and a tie would be fine!

Oooh totally agree with the rolling up sleeves situation.  For some reason a long sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled almost to the elbow looks hot, whereas a short sleeve shirt can easily look dorky.  If it’s not a nice enough wedding for a suit, I’d go with that.

I associate short sleeves and ties, with airplane pilots. I just can’t get past it. LOL.  Darling Husband would always wear a suit regardless of the time of year, but a lot of the summer weddings, he ends up in something like this (obviously dress pants)…
