Groom Wearing Shorts?

Your thoughts? 

 

He won't look "Stupid" no matter what happens...    I say live a little, have fun after all, you have chosen a non conventional wedding location and if shorts make the guy feel comfortable, live it up. 

 

Does this bride look stupid?

My fiance wants to wear rolled up suit trousers with a shirt with sleeves rolled up with and a waistcoat. But I can't think what he should wear on his feet???

 

They're not casual shorts so sandals would look a bit weird, and he obviously can't wear typical suit shoes. Im stumped on this one. Any ideas??x

I'm with the ladies on the no-shorts.  I think the guys should be able to wear a light khaki pant for maybe an hour.  After the actual wedding - they can change into shorts for the reception.  I think my thinking is more for the pictures.

I'm also not a fan of shorts. I got around this by telling him the resort won't let him wear shorts in the restaurants, where we may end up having our reception. Luckily this is true! I would check with your resort first and see if they'll even let you do it.

I love the look of shorts, with a nice linen or cotton dress shirt and sandals.  I just saw pictures last night from a wedding where they wore shorts, cotton dress shirt with short sleeves, and a skinny tie, it looked really good!  FI is going to go shopping with his groomsmen on Friday, and I just found these shorts from Banana Republic on sale :)

I think you can do what you want. My FI has choosen shorts and a short sleeve dress shirt for his GM. But he surprised me by wanting to be dressed up himself, he has choosen a white linen suit! The wedding is as much his, as it is yours. Let him choose what he would like to wear, but maybe draw the line at board shorts LOL! You may be very surprised at what he chooses, I know I was. Here's the photo of the GM clothes. P8120165.jpg

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
