snappy dressed dudes
I don't think it will be tricky to dress up a bunch of good looking guys for our shin dig.
- Suits: wearing their own suits was a possibility...I was all for it after I saw a few weddings where this was done...looked amazing. Except a couple of the guys don't own their own suits, and this could get really costly for them to go BUY a suit for our wedding.
- Suspenders: charming idea really. But the more I thought about it, it would be tricky to have the boys all wear the same colored pants and shirts. I became skeptical of pulling it off. But let it be known that Tommy DUG this idea.
- Vests: My fave trendy look. Except, again, expense plays a part as the vests would need to be purchased (as "renting" pants and vests aren't possible). But I still love love this idea. (my future hubby isn't totally "into" the vest look...he digs it....but....he doesn't exactly "swoon" over it like I do...soooo...
- Tux rentals: totally not where we thought our simple mountain wedding would go. We weren't anticipating formal. We were anticipating relaxed wardrobe...not red carpet (even though the men that walk the red carpet are GORGEOUS in their black tuxes).
And obviously, what the dudes wear are up to my Groom...sort of...but mostly.
Tux rentals ended up being the easiest...and the most cost efficient. Who woulda guessed? The groomsmen will all look wildly classy. Plus, we went with Mens Warehouse which has zillions of rental places across the country. It will be easier for the guys to go and get measured and rent their duds (including shoes!) and pick 'em up in Vegas before heading to Flagstaff for the wedding. (or at least we are crossing our fingers it will be easy anyway).
It took Tommy like 2 seconds to make his selections.
One button black tux - check
Black tie - check
No cummerbund - check
Vest - check (yay!)
Black shoes - check
And then we left.
Could it really be that easy?
