I have no idea what do dress my handsome groom in. We are having a backyard wedding…about 45 guests…picture purple linens with lots of candles and strings of lights. Pretty, but not too fancy. Food is family style home-made food. I’m wearing a full length gown (picture below!)
Because it’s a backyard thing, I don’t really want to put him in a tux, but I still want him to stand out from other male guests, ya know? As far as what he likes to wear, his style is pretty classic when he dresses up (not fashion forward) and I do want him to be comfortable. What do you fashionistas think?

Can I get a bump for my night owl ladies? 😉

Is he comfortable in a suit? He can wear it for the ceremony then take it off for the rest of the events. Another suggestion would be to have him in a vest and pants with a collared shirt (basically suit minus jacket). The vest thing is pretty popular right now and sounds like it would fit your situation and still set your FI out from the rest. Your dress is so pretty that I wouldn’t put him in anything too unformal though!

If tuxes are out then maybe switch it up color wise. Have him wear a different color then the guys (suite color not vest). I’ve seen a lot of weddings lately where the groom wears white… Our guys will be wearing grey tuxes and FI will be wearing his Dress Blues.

I’m loving the vest idea!
