So, I am going dress shopping (!!!) in exactly 2 weeks. My vision is to purchase this dress or a similar style. Our ceremony will be on the beach and I want to do the barefoot sandals. My fiance doesn't want to wear a suit - he's afraid of being too hot ( and I don't want to risk him looking sweaty-nasty in photos) so he'd like to have a more relaxed look. Do yall think this would look ridiculous??

LOVE this dress!! Is this the one you ended up going with?

I loved 2 dresses and the one I didn't get due to budget was one just like this but strapless. Beautiful!!!!!!!

I'm slightly jealous of all of you who have gotten the guys into even linen pants. I have worked my way up to black pinstriped board shorts with a belt and a long sleeve button down shirt, and it was a fight to get to that point. I read this last night and suggested a vest, and he was like just a vest? So ridiculous!

OMG! My fiancé is so complicated when it comes to his attire. It's driving me a little nuts!! I thought we had agreed that he would wear dress pants and a vest. The other day he comes and he says he's wearing a suit. I thought we had agreed that he's going to be boiling in that suit but he wants to wear one and is so pigheaded about it. He said "yeah I'll just ask for the ceremony to be 10 min, bam, we take the pictures and I'll change" I told him that it's our wedding and people are traveling for us, I'm definitely not having a 10 min ceremony! And secondly he's going to look like he's in a bad mood on all of the pictures because he'll be so hot. You do not tell a woman "I'll be uncomfortable but I'll suck it up" because after years of wearing heels and other uncomfortable fashion items, we know that you do not simply suck it up when you're uncomfortable. I don't know what else to do at this point. Get him another outfit behind his back and then tell him "I told you so?" Agrhh!

LOL   I didn't want my fiance in anything more than this!  I guess he is lucky :)

I might even change the dress shirt to a fancy golf shirt - going to look this weekend to see what I think!

Yeah I'm ok with it now, but originally he wanted to just be in board shorts, I drew the line at that, my dress is pretty fancy so a shirt was required!! I agree with other posters let him wear what he wants (within reason) if your both comfortable, you'll both be happier!

Funny to see this as a topic! My FI and I have been talking about this since we were engaged. I want to have dressy attire. I find that it looks so amazing with the lush backdrop of the tropics. I see pictures of people getting married in shorts and untucked short sleeve shirts and i find that it looks so sloppy. I dont want to be walking around in a beautiful wedding dress and spend almost $15K on a wedding to then look back at the pictures and see everyone looking slopping. Additionally, we are getting married in August because his family has many small children in school so we can only go during the summer. At first I wanted a full suit but we are probably going to settle on dress pants with a vest and long sleeve shirt with the sleeves neatly rolled up. We can take a few pictures with the suit jacket on or flung over his shoulder. We plan to have a very short ceremony and focus on the reception.. party party!!

    • 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.
