    I'm in the 'no shorts' camp too. I have no issue with not wearing a suit, but linen pants and shirt are a great compromise and look nice in the pictures.

      Mine said he'd really like to wear tan shorts and a nice linen button down.  I'm okay with the casual shirt... but will the shorts look stupid when I'm wearing a wedding dress?  Although my dress is simple, it's floor-length. 


      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?

        I think a nice pair of shorts and a nice shirt look great - remember too if it's really hot you don't want shiny foreheads or sweaty faces in the pics!

            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 :)

                    We haven't talked too much about it, but ever since we have decided on a DW I just assumed he would wear shorts. 

                    Nie khaki shorts, no hawaiin shorts or shirts!

                    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
