    My FI wants to wear capris for our wedding! I'm not thrilled about the idea but if we can find some nice ones and a nice shirt to go with it then maybe once I see the outfit come together I will feel better about it.

    I was looking at Banana Republic but can't find what we're looking for. Either that or he will wear linen pants.

    We are having a pretty informal wedding. This is the dress I'm going to try on not next weekend but the next. I live away from my family and friends so I haven't been able to try on dresses yet = ( That and we just started planning this wedding 1 month ago.

    David's Bridal - Bridal Gowns VW9146 Chiffon gown with pleated bust, empire waist, and tie back.
    This dress is just what I want, light and flowy and a little sexy = ) I think it's perfect for a DW!

    Anyways, back on topic .... I think FI can get away with wearing capri's if we can find some that are semi dressy Does anyone have any suggestions?

    hmm I would have never thought about it, and I don't think my DH or any of his groomsmen would have done it. Why not just wait until spring and get a nice linen pant for him

      I agree - wait and get him linen pants. They will be so much cooler to wear (temp wise). Plus, most guy capris are cargo-like so they always look casual. I just think that if he wears capris that in 40 years when you look back at your pics he'll be like "why did I wear those pants?" bc they are fairly trendy.

        hahaha I agree and that's what I thought when he told me! I laughed out loud when he told me he wanted to wear capri's but I thought I would let him try. I just showed him a pair of linen pants online and he likes that idea too. Spring line will be coming out soon and I love to shop so I will drag him to the mall to try linen pants on.

            I wanted the grooms men to wear floods (little longer then a Capri.) My FI laughed at me and said his guys would never but I though it would look nice if the guys are barefoot on the beach. Any way there is a web site international male that has lots of great stuff like linen pants exc. Good luck choosing!

              Oh really?! If he can pull them off then I will allow it = ) We will be barefoot so maybe it will look good.

              I LOVE that dress = ) Were you nice and comfy wearing it? I want something light and comfortable!

                Oh yea, floods! That's the word I was looking for or pedal pushers = ) There are so many different terms but yes I like the longer ones. I just took a peek at the international male website and they have some great stuff. Thanks!
