    I have a question...

    I am interested in the dress (possibly in Ivory).

    Caprice - by Maggie Sottero

    What should the groom wear? We are havng a beach wedding in the Spring and it will be warm. I had originally wanted him to wear a Tommy Bahama shirt with khakis and flip flops. Will that not look good? Should he wear a suite? If so, do you think a linen suite would be ok. Any suggestions you have would be great!

      I am struggling with the same thing. My fiance has no clue either and probably thinks he can wait until the last second. We are getting married in the Spring too. (April 22)

        Do you think this would go with the dress no matter if it is white or Ivory? Or does the shirt need to match the dress? I don't know why I am having such a hard time with this!

          First off...that dress is super sexy!! And because it has such a formal elegance to it, I'd think that a suit would be a better match, and tan would be a good colour - it matches white or ivory, AND it just has a good destination vibe!

              I'm also looking at buying the Caprice. IMO, I'm going to be dressed up so I thought it was only appropriate for my fiance to wear a suit. We just got a great deal on a tan/khaki Ralph Lauren suit from Macys so I think he'll wear that. He may be a little warm, but can take it off after the ceremony and for most of the pics. Our best man is not wearing a suit though, just khakis and a white shirt. Goood luck!

                Love the dress! I agree with others, I think a tan suit would like nice with a white or ivory dress.

                  So you're looking at the Caprice too?! Isn't it beautiful! It was between this and the Reese, but I think I am leaning towards the Caprice...though I plan on looking a bit more, just to make sure. What color shirt is your FI wearing and is he wearing a tie? I have also read that sometimes the beach weddings look nice witout a tie...so it still gives a little of a casual feeling. Is your best man wearing long sleeves or short sleeves?

                      Hmm good questions! I actually haven't made it that far yet :) I was thinking maybe a tie, but I see what you mean about wanting it to look more causual. I figured the best man would wear short sleeves (no reason he should have to suffer!)
