Groom and Groomsmen attire... HELP!

Recommended Posts

My fiancé and I are getting married in Jamaica in January. We have decided on yellow as our color. My bridesmaids and I have chosen, ordered and received their dresses. It has a yellow tulip skirt, the top is yellow with an ivory lace overlay. They are beautiful!! Now for the boys... I'm stumped... we bought their yellow shirts which matched the girls, but that's as far as I've made it. Here are my options... a) grey pants, yellow shirt (rolled up sleeves) and ivory tie B) white pants, yellow shirt (rolled up sleeves) and ivory tie c) beige pants, yellow shirt (rolled up sleeves) and ivory tie d) beige pants & yellow shirt (rolled up sleeves) e) white shorts & yellow shirt (rolled up sleeves) I figured that I'd have more difficulty with the girls than with the guys attire... Any thoughts would be great!!

I love the gray and yellow combinations! So beautiful! If you want my opinion - if possible, can you get them all white shirts? then they could have a yellow tie - Might be easier to pair things with. Typically the groom is the one that only wears the white/ivory tie (you want it to match your dress). Either way it will be beautiful! I have my guys in khaki linen pants with a coral tie, white shirt and a matching khaki vest, have you thought about vests? Maybe a yellow vest? It's hard to picture all of your options! Lol. I hope that helps a little! Good luck!! You should post pictures of the bridesmaids dresses - they sound beautiful! Happy planning :)

I've attached a picture of the girls dresses.  My FI and I have discussed the guys' attire and he doesn't want the vest.. we agreed on a tie for the guys.  I think we might end up going with this:

 

Groom: Ivory shirt (sleeves rolled half way), yellow loose tie and grey pants

Groomsmen: Yellow shirt (sleeves rolled half way), loose ivory tie and grey pants.

 

I really like the white pants idea, but I think it may blend all too well and they might look washed out.  I still have a bit of time to change my mind though.... sooooooo many decisions! lol

 

What are your guys and gals wearing??

Love those dresses!! So pretty!! I think you have the right idea! That will look great! My fiancé is wearing khaki linen pants, white shirt (sleeves rolled) ivory tie and matching khaki vest, belt and boat shoes. Groomsmen are wearing same thing but with a coral tie and best man has a turquoise tie. Here is my fi: 400 My girls are wearing this dress:400

Oh I love it!! It's going to be beautiful!! I never thought about having the best man wear a different tie!! That's a good idea!!!

 

My wedding is going to be shoeless while on the beach... nothing is worse then wearing socks and getting sand inside the shoes! lol

Aw thank you!! As much as I love barefoot idea - mens feet gross me out! Haha. So guys will wear boat shoes with no socks (fi prefers this anyway! Haha) and myself and girls will wear barefoot sandals. Keep me posted on what you choose!! Good luck and happy planning :)

We're doing the coral from david's also.  I was thinking of tan pants (I'm too afraid of the wrinkles with linen), off white shirts, and maybe my FI in a vest.  I've looked at the island importer website but and so afraid to order and the sizes be way off.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
