My FI is buying his white linen suit from Island Importer. They said they can custom make his suit.. we are excited about that! We bought our GM white linen pants at marshalls for 30.00 they are calvin klein.. we ended up buying the guys a fuchsia/white striped shirt to match the BM's. They were with a sale 40.00 each. We also bought the guys white leather kenneth cole sandals at the outlet.. I personally love them! The only prob is the FI cant fit into the EXPRESS MENS shirts so we have to have his tailor custom make his shirt!!pinkie.gif

Hi ladies!

 

I have a question I'm hoping you can answer as my FI and I don't totally agree on the colour of the shirt he should wear.

 

Did any of you (or are any of you planning to) have your groom's shirt match the colour of the bridesmaids dresses? My bm's dresses are turqouise and we found a men's dress shirt in the exact colour. To be a little different, I think it would be cool to have my groom wear that colour as his shirt, and then the groomsmen to just wear white shirts. Anyone done this? I know most grooms wear a white shirt and maybe have the groomsmen wear coloured shirts but I just thought it would be nice to switch it up a little!

 

If you did this, can you post pictures??

 

I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!!!

I've seen that done before and I thought it looked really nice. Unfortunately I don't have a picture..but I say if you like it and the FI agrees...then do it! But if he doesnt want to wear it then maybe have the groomsmen wear it??

I love looking at everyone great outfits! I have a question though....

 

Is/Did anyone have a groom wear shorts? Amazingly I am the one who thinks he should consider it. Nice shorts with a white shirt just sounds more comfortable for him, and we are going to be quite casual. I am wearing a nice dress, but it is a destination style and not too dressy. He doesn't have any groomsman.

 

Just wondering if anyone else did the shorts thing for the groom and how did they feel about it? We are getting married in Aruba and I also need to look into whether the officiants would have a problem shorts on the beach.

 

Thanks ladies!

I've seen it done and it definitely looks nice. I think given your description that it should totally work. I was thinking the same, but some of my groomsmen have fugly legs. lol. Good luck!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
