    Hi Ladies,


    I'm having trouble trying to decide (or have my Finance decide) on what to wear.  I've thrown out a ton of ideas and can't get an opinion for the life of me!  I was wanting to go with a light blue (almost white/blue) short sleeve button up short, casual, but nice with a good light material. I was then thinking of doing a grey (darker than lighter) pant with this.  However, I've got a bit of negative feedback on the grey.  Any opinions?  Also, has anyone seen any weddings with the groom in pants and the groomsmen in shorts?  I was thinking this could set him apart from the other guys, but not sure if this is too casual.  Lastly, where do you go to buy this?  I've been looking online, but haven't really found a good selection from any one company.  Please help!


    Thanks, Kim

        Hi Kim,

        We are trying to decide too.  I have been looking at my photographer's website www.alecandt.com for ideas, and it's helped a lot.  You can see their blog posts which feature weddings they've done in Mexico.  It's great seeing how wedding parties in the past have coordinated, and which colors really seem to work. 


        I'm sure if you go to any destination wedding photographer's website mentioned on this forum, you'll get more great ideas for attire.   :)


        Good luck,

          I am having my FI wear Khaki pants and a white shirt. We are having an all white wedding so it helps =)


          If you are in need of ideas check out the Del Sol wiki located on these boards. Each slideshow is of a different wedding. There are probably 70 weddings. I would pick out your favorite 5 clothed grooms and tell your groom to pic his favorite. It might help him to see photos. I know my FI can't invision wedding stuff.

            My fiance is wearing a beige linen type material pant with a lime green but light in color shirt and a white blazer. The groomsmen are wearing beige shorts with white button down shirts. The girls dresses are multi colored, pink, orange, green etc therefore I am hoping it will all work together. I figured if I picked a color like green that ties in with my fiances shirt and the green in the girls dresses I could use it along with orange or pink for the guys boutineers.


            I think your fiance in pants will look good next to you in a long wedding dress, dont forget about that part, that is if your dress is floor lenght?

                  I'm not a huge fan of the short sleeve button down. I say go rolled sleeves.
