    Metal or NATO strap for a beach wedding (leather not an option)?

    If you had to go with a steel bracelet or a NATO strap for a fairly casual beach wedding (no suits) what would you choose?

    NATO or perlon, I think. Pretty sure Eulit has a light blue perlon that would be a very good "beach" color. Or, of course, a sand or khaki colored perlon. I mention perlon because it'll be a low-gloss option. Nylon is usually rather high-gloss. Ya know, that also suggests maybe canvas or denim...although...hmmm, that could be a bit too casual.

    I would take my watch on a leather strap and otherwise just wear a smile :D

    No seriously, if it had to be a nato or bracelet.... bracelet.

    Seconding the perlon option here, though really it would depend on what I want wearing for the occasion

    Nato for comfort and low maintenance.

    I own one of the blue Eulit perlons that gangrel mentioned, it's a really fun option for summer when paired with the right watch

    Bracelet. Common, it's still a wedding... that said, probably no one will notice or care unless you are in the wedding.

    NATO would probably match the casual theme, and you can likely get one in a color(s) that will match the wedding theme.

    NATO is my choice as well. Perlon a close second...

    Where is the wedding? If we're talking north eastern beach definitely brightly colored NATO. South eastern beach I think you could get away with either, probably would still tend NATO just so you don't get any sand in the links of the bracelet. West coast is a different story, I would think Perlon would fit better if leather wasn't an option.
