        I was talking to my Mom about the fans, and I was online looking to order them, but weddingbliss.com doesn't ship to Canada and the turquoise fans are sold out until Sept. I think we will just go with the natural colour and incorporate the turquoise into them.

        Upside - we won't have to worry about people getting coloured hands! LMAO

          i think the natural color fans with turqoise in them would look really great anyway.

          Oh and they changed the colored fans so the handles were natural not colored to keep from staining hands. but it kinda looks stupid well it's sloppy looking, that's why i'm definately putting ribbon on it.

                that is a scary thought. I'm still hung up on only having 4 mos left.

                Celina, i decided to just go ahead and order to shirts from wedding tropics. i ordered a 2xl and xl. And than once we get them and we see how the sizes run, i'll order the other two shirts. So i just didn't put in the measurements. i wanted to get all the guys to meet so i could measure them but fi said just order two. So i did, we'll see how they turn out. The shipping was $25 for two shirts, i did a double take when i saw the cost. And that's just standard shipping.

                I have to get some clothes for the trip this weekend. And bathing suits, this won't be fun.

                  I think he would stand out fine from the guys since the embroidery would be different.

                  And i do like how you are having the Moh and BestMan match and than the bms and gms match. I think that will look really nice.
                  Yes - that sounds great! I just want us to kind of match. Sometimes I could kick myself for getting an ivory dress. I just didn't feel right wearing white with two kids. I don't know...it weemed weird to me. If you look at the gallery at Weddingtropics, you'll see what I mean regarding the mitch match pants and shirts blending together.

                  I also like the idea of the White shirt and the natural linen pants Celina.

                  My Mom is making the girls dresses and we had teal material for them, but when my dress came in, it was turquoise, not teal. Now we are going to get some new material and then start working on them.
                  Yes - I am glad you guys made me see it. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with too many choices! That totally sucks about your dress and the FG's dresses. Your mom is a blessing!

                  $25 for two shirts - YIKES! Yeah, I was thinking if we should just go by their sizing and see how it goes instead of measuring each and every person. FI has picked up some weight and I know that is why he is dragging his feet on buying clothes. What he is REALLY going to do is wait until the last minute and there won't be ANY linen pants to be found and then he will see my true Bridezilla come out! Some places love to take advantage when it comes to shipping!

                  Swimsuit shopping SUCKS! I need to buy another one, but haven't found one I like. I bought one last year and lord knows why I bought it, because I hate it!

                    My dress is ivory too. My FI is wearing a tan suit with white shirt, and the best man and ring bearers are wearing tan/khaki pants and white shirts. I figured that would be the best option to go with ivory. My BMs are wearing pink and green dresses with ivory flip flops.
