So I finally have the main part of the men outfits done!  We found shirts at Banana Republic and pants at the Gap.  I think we are going to have them tuck in the shirt and wear with a belt.  Now we need to choose footwear. We are undecided on Sandals or Closed Toe Loafer type shoes ... going barefoot for the ceremony.  The clothing needs to be washed and steamed before we go.  I don't know whether I should take it all to the dry cleaner or attempt to do it myself and save a few bucks?  What do you all think?  Have any of you found any nice ties?  My fiancee wants to wear one.  I've looked around but all of them are so dark ... no pastel or summer colours!

We found great ties at Macys.  We got a white tie and cream tie.

Question - I'm just now working on the men's attire...so late. I shoulda added that to my list of To Do's but silly me, why would I think i needed to organize that on top of EVERYTHING else. Argh!!

Anyhow, my question (sorry for the mini rage/rant) is this...FH is going to wear a charcoal suit with tie. GM will be wearing grey pant/vest (no jacket) with (i think) white shirts. Should they wear a patterned peachy/pink bow tie with the vest or stick with a regular slim (not skinny) tie??

I went shopping today and was totally overwhelmed by all of the choices. Time is ticking and if I'm not careful they will be walking down the aisle in their beach shorts. HELP!!

We just finished our groomsmen attire also!  We decided to tell the guys to get brown thong-type sandals for the ceremony, and then they would need closed toe shoes for the reception.  IN hindsight, I kinda wish that we would have them barefoot during the ceremony, because I don't want them to have to carry around an extra pair of shoes all night, or have to walk all the way back to their room to change...

Lol I think this is totally your preference. I would say go with the slim tie but that just because I don't like bow ties and think they kinda look cheesy (unless they are paired with suspenders for a hipster look hahah) but if you like them go for it!

Here is the look for the guys.  My Fiancee with the tie ... although this is not the colour of tie.  I'm looking for something with beige/peach/blush tones or mint green tones.  His groomsmen will be wearing the same but no tie.  Shirts from Banana Republic, Pants from Gap  .... with coupons $47 for shirt, $50 for pants (tax included)!!!!  Still looking for shoes now and belts.

My first order from Vista Print came today.  I got oversized postcards for Menu/Thank You cards.  Going to place these on top of the dinner plates.  Then the room key/money holder came from ebay and the mini-card from Vista Print too.  Super happy with the quality!

I think it`s your preference as well -- any will look good , although I prefer a slim tie as well. 

 

I feel like my groomsmen are so under dressed compared to all of you hahahahaha....and so is the Groom! They are wearing beige linen pants with short sleeve white linen shirts untucked....and my FI is wearing a dressier linen pant from Tommy Bahamas with a long sleeve white checked linen shirt rolled at the cuffs tucked in with brown leather belt...they seem so casual compared to all you ladies ;)

I LOVE the untucked look.  We tried with ours, but it doesn't really look right with the shirts we have or something ... So ours are still white shirts and beige pants, still fairly simple.  Would have loved to do Tommy Bahama, just too expensive for us!

 

I noticed you are from Orangeville .... I'm marrying one of your people :)  I was just there on the weekend for our Easter Dinner with his family! lol
