    So I originally thought I wanted Matt and his GM's to wear a white shirt and tan pants. Then, I think it was AnnR, said how most all of the men guests wore that to the wedding, so almost all the men were wearing the same thing. I gathered a bunch of pics to see what Matt liked and he picked out this one:

    I like it, but I was hoping for something a little brighter/deeper blue to match with our colors - blue, orange and fuschia. The girls are wearing the dress below and I thought having the blue with it would look complimentary without being matchy-matchy.

    Anyone see any nice blue shirts? I am having a hard time finding any that I like enough to be THE wedding shirt!

      Try Shushan's - Hat Retailer. They have a French Blue color Guayabera that you might like. I can't post it through photobucket right now since I'm at work and not supposed to be on BDW. :-)

        Ohhh, Tami, I like that one! This site hadn't come up in my searches! I will send this to Matt and see what he thinks...

        It's closer to the color then the baby blue one he liked.

        Here is a color closer to what I thought, but Matt didn't like it...

              Danielle - I got them from Nordstrom's and Dilliards. The ones I got from Dilliards, they had to ship from Louisianna. I haven't regretted it once though. I bought them last May!

              I can't find them on Dilliard's anymore, but here's Nordstroms - Adrianna Papell Floral Silk Halter Dress - Adrianna Papell - Nordstrom

                    THis one is cool, but it's vintage and probably not his size. Vintage Guayabera Shirts, mexican wedding shirts at RustyZipper.Com Vintage Clothing

                    bright blue but looks similar to some of the others -- Cuban Food Market / Sentir Cubano: Cuban Guayaberas

                    Looks like you want more of a bright aqua color, right?

                      Yeah, Matt's pretty small and we want all the guys to wear the same shirt. Going vintage would've been cool though!

                      But I like the deeper blue that you posted, Tami. Click the image to open in full size.

                      I do think I want something more on the bright side, cuz it needs to look good with the girls dresses. Aqua or turquoise. I like the one that Matt liked, but it's so pale....
