    I am having a pretty large bridal party (7). i really want to buy them their outfits and since we are getting married in Hawaii - i am thinking about getting some really beautiful Hawaiian sarongs (blues and whites) and asking the girls to buy a new white tank (not wife beater style - HA), or tube or halter to go with them.

    does anyone have any ideas of where to look online?

    thanks!

          You're welcome! I think there are some great prices on some of those sites as well! I browsed a lot of them searching for our GM shirts ... and just added some Sarong sites for ya as well!

          I will definitely tel Tom! He has no idea how many fans he and his soldiers have on BDW! :-)

            I love that you are going non-traditional. we went with blue and white dresses from Ann Taylor but for Hawaii there are SO many great options!!

            My one caution with a sarong is that it works as beach wear b/c if it flies open in a breeze you have a bikini bottom on underneath. I would suggest looking for a dressy and YOUNG style muu muu. I know the word sounds scary but if you've been to Hawaii before you'll know what I'm talking about.

            There are some very good retailers there with beautiful dresses. You should ask you WC for some suggestions.

            By the way, I'm incredibly jealous that you are getting married there!!! I lived there for five years and always dreamed of getting married there but it was too much to ask our families to travel their from the east coast, especially mine which all made the journey for my college graduation.

            Best of luck!

            Aloha,

                I love the sarong idea, with a white tank top, you could do beautiful leys to complete the look, or a ley wreath for their hair, oh so tropical, and fun!

                  They have beautiful sarongs there. I was thinking of my BM wearing these but then I saw a beautiful dress at Davids Bridal so I changed my mind.

                      I lived on O'ahu and Kaua'i and loved every minute of it!

                      A muumuu is a traditional Hawaii dress. they are often thought of as long and very wide/flowy, but there are some very fit/sexy/modern ones available too.
