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!
You shouldn't have any issue with wearing shorts at the ceremony in Aruba. I've seen some pics with the groom and his guys in shorts at weddings in aruba.

I was just coming on here to ask the same question. My FI and all his groomsmen are hockey and football guys, really broad, and I'm afraid of pants looking 'tappered' on them. ALSO I'm afraid of the heat, I don't want to walk down the aisle and see the men in my bridal party melting hahaha.

I had the idea of a nice beige short, long sleeve linen shirts and then ties, and possibly have the guys roll their sleeves 1/4 way up.

My FI says no..he think's that would look silly. He would rather wear beige pants, white shirt and a tie and then roll the pants up 1/4 of the way.

I need some opinions here! I think shorts would be nice...for them, I'm just all about comfort!

Hopeless, I'm not a huge fan of the man-pri look for the wedding. I prefer when you either go shorts or you go pants. Linen pants are great for beach weddings because they are so light. But a tailored khaki short would be really nice too. But in all honesty, the boys caused the most ruckus over their outfits and by the end I was so over listening to them. Do what makes your FI and you happy!

Cheers to your FI on picking out a great suit! It will look awesome in your pics :)

He bought the suit at Sid Silvers in Toronto. They were going out of business and he got it for cheap. The shirt came form Steinmart in the states. I'm not sure if Sid Silvers is still around...you guys should check it out!

Thanks for the suggestion AutumnJo...We are going to look at the GM clothing this weekend so hopefully we will have it all figured out.

 

Also, I love the suit Sarah! Wish I lived in Toronto still!! Or even CLOSE to it, hahaha

My bridesmaids dresses are apple red and I feel so bad I know my FI wanted the Tommy Bahama look but all of us are a little bit too fancy for that. I loved seeing all the pics and it gave me some great ideas. Thanks!
