    this is what i am wearing

     

    and this what my two bridesmaids will be wearing

     

    This dress has quit a bit more blue in it in person.

    Both will be dressed down without the jewelery and we will be on the beach and barefoot.

     

    I do not have any idea what the groom and his two groomsmen should wear. I do not like the sloppy baggy linen, but I am not against a a fitted linen outfit. Suit? Black khaki? Shorts? Jackets? Vests? Suggestions PLEASE!

      Beautiful dress and totally unique!

       

      We aren't fans of the baggy linen thing either, its not my FI's style at all! Also, we wanted something more formal with no flip flops sort of thing. 

      I can't post what I am wearing just in case the FI snoops! LOL! But for the rest of our party....

       

      the fiancĀ© is wearing something very similar to this with a grey vest and pants and white shirt and purple tie:

       

       and our guys are wearing grey pants the same as FI's and a purple shirt the same colour as our girls' dresses, without the vest. The vest style with no jacket over top, in my opinion, isn't for all shapes of men, but if the fit is right it looks fantastic! I have also told them that as it will be totally hot there we can casual-it-up a bit and they can roll their sleeves up, but I will be pre-rolling the sleeves so they still look clean! lol!

       

      My girls are wearing this dress http://www.henkaa.co...ml#.UH12MmgTs00  In case my link doesn't work here is the pic as well. It is convertible so I figured the two of them can each find a way that best flatters them and wear it that way and be comfortable.

       

       

       

      Happy Planning!

        Love the BM dress! I want it lol. Where is it from?

         

        For the boys I have seen some really nice looking darker colors in linen that look more dressy greys, blacks. Also you can do ties with their shirts. Love the vests above. For my guys we got all of their pants from H&M which I really liked because they were a bit more fitted than the more relaxed versions I saw online. I dont think they are in season anymore, but keep your eye out in clothing stores around springtime.

          I love the grey pants and vest!  The rolled up sleeve look looks so nice!

           

          Where are you ordering them from?

           

          Thanks!

              FireyNurse thank you! Wow that is a great look for the groomsmen, I really like the idea of a dark grey or charcoal color. With the bridesmaids dresses being so dark I think it would look a little more complementary than khaki.

               

              And the bridesmaid dresses are from Macys.com. I wanted dresses with a print that did not look like traditional bridesmaid dresses We got them in three days, they are very nice quality. They look the same in person just the blue is a little more prominent.

                    I think it is important that not only does the groom's attire go with the tone of the wedding, but is of his style. My FI dislikes wearing suits and ties, so I would never ask him to wear one for the wedding.
