hmmm...I would tell him that he can wear black at the reception, but not the ceremony.

 

You want a beachy feel...there isnt black anywhere. Maybe if you work with him and compromise on changing outfits it will work better.

 

I think that black would be weird. BUT also, if thats what he wants to do....then let him do it.

 

I guess that I didnt really help...lol...sorry!

Aww I love our FIs lol!! I think if all he wants to pick is what he wears and the honeymoon, you might have to let it go. I would definately push for a gray or navy suit though. It would go better with the beach backdrop. My mom wanted the guys in black suits and I just kept showing her pics of black suits on the beach vs tan suits. She agrees with me now that it doesn't look right. It would be like us wearing a big cathedral gown!!

I don't think black would be a problem! I'm sure its hard because you have a certain vision in your mind, but we brides get to pick out a lot of things, so I guess its our duty to let the boys atleast get to help choose what they wear.

 

No worries, black will look great!

LOL I agree and it amazes me how many pictures I've seen of women wearing ball gowns on the beach. I guess it depends on what you feel comfortable in. I still have time, so we'll see if I can convince him; although he might be right about looking washed out in a tan suit..lol or he can look to pale in a black one. uugghhh decisions.

Lol I pictured mine in a tan suit too but he demanded navy blue! I think we sort of have to let them do what they want since we pretty much pick everything else. I think it will look nice though, especially with the groomsmen with fuscia ties

We have the same colours! I think what he wants will look amazing and be a really nice contrast against the sand for the photos. Besides because it is a DW you can do whatever you want.

My FI is doing the same thing, and my BM's are in black dresses and using tropical colors everywhere else: flowers, accessories and such. I've seen a few weddings with black linen suits and while it does look a little more formal, it still looks great. The suits and BM's in black shirts and khaki pants "popped" in the pictures, where the khaki can blend with the scenery...I guess it depends on the feel you are going for. Khaki looks great too, particularly for that casual beachy feel... We are doing a gazebo rather than beach, so a little more formal works for us..

I do have to agree with your FI though, being of some Irish blood myself (fair and all) we do look much better in black than Khaki :) LOL!!!

I think black will look fine! I like the ideas of the black linen shirt w/ tan pants or a black linen suit. I also like a black suit & fun shoes like Chuck Taylors

He will look great, and it will make him happy, so why not? And with a linen suit, it won't look as formal as with a regular suit. It will look great!

    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
