    Anyone else doing it this way, or does the cheese stand alone? Hehe.
    Nope, you are not alone. I am planning to have Aqua-Blue BM dresses and white shirts for the boys too.

    Mexbride, I love you dress! I also have my eyes on a mermaid dress...but not sure if I would look nice in a mermaid. I totally understand the problem of medical uninsured people in US, sometimes, I feel sorry for them. Don't get me wrong, I think universal medicare coverage isn't perfect, but at least it provide a better safety net for people.

    Michelle, I love your BM dresses! so cute and girly!

      The cheese doesn't stand alone :) We planned on doing white button ups & khakis for the guys. For my bridesmaids, I can't seem to decide on a color. I'm going to let them pick out whatever dress they like, as long as it's a shorter one. I really like pool (which is aqua), watermelon, & guava from David's Bridal. I have some time to decide - I think I've already changed my colors like four times!

        I came across this dress, and somehow really like it. Except, I am not too sure if I will look good in a mermaid dress and if it will be too hot to wear that!LOL!

          I really like the guava at David's . We looked here before deciging on a one shoulder chiffon dress by Allure from House of Brides. I posted it on here about a month ago.

          You might try looking there if you haven't already. Price range is comparable to David's. It was important to me that the dresses not be too $$ since my girls are already dropping so much cash on their trips.

          We are doing half the girls in hot pink (similar to DB watermelon) and half will wear a bright coral. The coral is more on the hot pink-y side rather than orangy. The two colors are actually quite similar but look beautiful together.

                The dresses were from feverdesign.co.uk

                they also do this dress in aqua blue for the ladies liking blue. I am the same. Two of my BM's are a size 10 and MOH is a size 16. This dress is perfect for them all. So light and cool and the floaty skirt is great for all sizes. I think as you are drawn to the shoulder detail it takes away the size of the BM. I was worried as the girls are different sizes but this dress is just perfect and honestly it looks so pretty on compared to on the hanger. When the girls try on i will take pic and post so you can see :o)

                We are also having the men in white shirts!

                Bonnie i like that dress! I personally wouldn't like anything to high up around my neck for a Mexican wedding (think i would be too hot) but it is really pretty x

                    Glad you girls like our colors

                    As for the guys, we are a bit stuck on this one. We are not too ipressed with anything we've seen thus far. Some formalwear stores will rent tan suits, but we didn't like them in person. We found one we actually did like for rent, and the rental cost was $200 given the length of the rental (over a week)

                    Then we found that same suit that we liked for sale online:

                    Sand 'Riviera' 2 Button Notch Destination Suit Coat

                    (Sorry, too lazy to upload photo!)

                    Jacket is 129 and pants are 80. They said they'd do 10% off since we're ordering so many. So for about $189 they can own it rather than waste the $ renting.

                    Do you guys think that's too much to ask the guys to spend? Be honest if you do.
                    The other option would be have FI wear the whole suit and the guys just wear the pants and white shirts.

                    Keep in mind though that we're getting married in church so it's a bit more formal. I think the shirt and pants would look nice with brown sandals, but the guys are wearing dress shoes.

                      Michelle - what shoes are your BMs wearing with the dress? I don't know what else to choose other than flats or else they will *sink* into the sand..!
