Those with wedding party what are girls wearing? Short/long dresses? Casual? Haven't picked yet but we've been trying both long and short chiffon.
are your guys wearing? Full jacket and ties? Button ups? Etc.etc?
We can't decide. Thinking of linen suits but just vest not suit jacket. Maybe just the linen pants and a linen shirt. Oy..just don't no. FI is worried about being hot he is always hot. Guys wearing shoes? Mine are gonna have too he refuses to go barefoot?
What about flower girls/ring bearer?
I don't like the "destination" dresses either. For me, just because I'm getting married on a beach doesn't mean I want a short "beach" dress or a casual flowy sheath. i still want to feel and look like a bride. I love the fit & flare/trumpet style gowns - no satin or lace because I think that will be too heavy for the beach but I've tried on some light airy organza and tulle (?) dresses. And a bit of bling detail .. maybe from a sparkly sash.
For him, I'm envisioning (or telling him lol) cream/khaki colored pants and vest, no jacket, white shirt and a tie. He tried to argue that it will be too hot for a tie but I do NOT want his chest hair sticking out lolol. He wants to wear sandals which I;m OK with as long as they are new, tasteful and match his outfit. he jokes he is going to wear his 15 year old timberland velcro water sandals
