Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

I attended a wedding in St. Lucia and the groom and groomsmen rented and brought tuxes from Mens Wearhouse with no problems! As another poster said, they just had to rent them for a week.

 

I had to take this opportunity to show off my groomsmens' ties, which I absolutely LOVE! I found and bought them a couple of months ago at a Vineyard Vines outlet (just $40 each, almost 1/2 price!!). I took the pics with my phone, so they're not totally clear, and the pink is lighter in person. They're margarita glasses, limes, and shakers of salt:) I love it for a Mexico wedding!

Here's my dad's tie, also bought at Vineyard Vines. He'll be wearing a navy blue suit with it.

The groomsmen are going to wear khaki pants, navy blue blazers, white shirts, and brown shoes (no casual shoes or sandals) with them.  I think we're going to buy their khakis also, then let them bring their own white shirts and blue blazers. Though the blazer is a point of contention with my mother at the moment, who thinks it'll look terrible if they aren't all the exact same shade of blue (I don't really care, personally). She wants to buy the blazers for all of them, and I'd really rather her not, so we'll see. My fiance is either wearing the same (with a different color tie) or his uniform (he's in the Army)... he still hasn't decided and I don't think he'll tell me when he does, though I keep bugging him to. I think he wants it to be a surprise (but I've made it clear that its the khakis and blazer or uniform, nothing else haha).

Can the other 2011 brides or past brides also advise on this? I am not sure if my FI can rent a suit and bring it to and from Mexico without issue.  He asked me about this and I had no idea.  We live in New Jersey (USA - for my UK / Canadian / Island / and anyone that I missed - brides)

 

Thanks a bunch!

After posting that I was cruising the VV website searching for a tie for my FI (I plan to buy him a tie just in case he goes that route!) and found this one which I thought was super cute and had to share for any of you that are searching for ties for the wedding:) http://www.vineyardvines.com/product__23799_____25051_13050

 

Though my FI is picky and I know he would refuse to wear a starfish tie, so I also fell in love with this one, which is more his style (and available in aqua, which would match my bridesmaids' dresses!) http://www.vineyardvines.com/product__109682_____25051_13050

 

I love tie shopping, if you can't telllove.gif haha

I am so glad that my FI is not wanting to wear shorts. We havent started looking for his outfit and the groomsmen yet, but it will be semi formal as we arent getting married on the beach.

hahahaha my FI picked linen pants, because his legs aren't that photogenic!

Thus linen shirts and pants for all the boys, no tie (I think it is very cruel to ask men to wear ties or suits when it is 35C in July)

FI is wearing a linen suit, however his groomsmen are wearing dress shorts and short sleeve dress shirts! I like that it will be a little more casual...plus we are asking that our guests NOT wear suit and tie...it's going to be way too hot for that! LOLcool.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
