    ...not your BMs but the other men in the wedding party (Dad, FIL). I'm thinking of having the BMs wear linen suits with a shirt/no tie but have my Dad and FIL wear pants and possibly a guayabera shirt.

    Does that sound off? Should I just make them all wear the same kind of outfit?

    If you have any pics to show that would be great! Thanks!

      Good question....I hadn't thought about it. I don't think I'm going to 'make' them wear anything! They can pretty much wear Khaki's and a golf shirt or nice button down I guess!

        Our wedding is Saturday and I still don't know what the guys are wearing! I just told them whatever because I didn't want it too matchy matchy. I think they are wearing nice pants and linen shirts.

          My godfather (who will be walking me down since my father past a year ago) will be wearing an embroidered linen suit (that looks just like FI's). As for FIL and the others I have no idea, just so long as they don't have on sportswear or jeans I will be okay. I hope they were short sleeved button ups and khakis or something along those lines.

            We are having the dads wear linen suits too b/c I feel like they're part of the bridal party. I think that your dad should were a suit similar to the guys, especially if he is walking you down the aisle

              My dad was the one who had the problem of not wearing a suit. He's old school and couldn't imagine walking me down the chapel isle in a printed linen shirt or short sleeve shirt. So the dads are wearing linen suits. GM in khaki linen pants and white linen button downs and my FI is wearing a different color linen suit with tie.

              Hope that helps =)

                My dad is a cowboy and is wearing what he is comfortable in ~ his dress jeans, short sleeve linen shirt and his dress boots... I can't imagine him in anything else. FFIL is wearing khakis and a short sleeve linen short. No one will remember what they wear so let them be comfy. As long at it looks decent and doesn't take away from the pics or the moment no one will be looking at them!

                  We aren't getting married until May but we decided we aren't going to impose a dress "code" on anyone. We are just excited our family & friends are spending the money to come spend the time with us. I asked my MOH to wear a sundress and the guys linen pants & white short sleeve button shirt but if they don't, no harm.
