ok girls. Here’s the deal. We are getting married on Sept 22, 2013 on the beach in Ocean City. I just picked out my dress, which is a normal dress, halter top and lots of tulle at the bottom. It’s a wedding dress. My wonderful darling love of my life lives in shorts. All year round. I had told him that him and his guys could wear khaki shorts and white button shirts with the sleeves rolled up. when I went to get my dress, the woman helping me said by no means should he wear shorts if i’m wearing a real dress. I said that to him and he pretty much freaked out because he said I already told him he could wear shorts. Help!! What do you guys recommend?? Are shorts okay even though my dress is a regular dress?? He’s not very happy nor willing to change the idea of wearing shorts.

I think shorts are fine for a beach wedding.

Google “Beach wedding” and you will say lots of pics of brides in wedding gowns and grooms in khaki slacks or shorts.

You thought it’d be okay originally, why let the sales lady influence you? If he’s about wearing shorts all year round, I could see why it’d upset him. It’s like you want him(Mr.Shorts) to be someone he’s not (Mr.Pants) on your special day.

Yeah, I wouldn’t let her sway you. You were initially okay with the idea of the men wearing shorts and that’s what he’s comfortable wearing. I wouldn’t sweat it. All of your friends and family know your individual personalities and the wedding setting so they won’t be scoffing at the fact that he’ll look a little more dressed down than you. I’d love to see your dress though! Congrats! 🙂

you all are right. I didn’t really think about it, until the saleswoman said no way should he wear shorts. but you’re right. he is mr. shorts, definitely not mr. pants.

@msgiraffe2013: I would love to find out what the boys and groom ended up wearing!? I am in the same situation..my dress is pretty formal, it looks a bit like yours actually! ..Groom wants all the boys in shorts. We aren’t getting married on the beach…but rather a garden (that is pretty fancy) that looks over the ocean.. the overall feel of our wedding however is casual and summery, but I still think the bridal party should dress fancy……..I would love to see pics also if the boys did end up wearing shorts! I need help swaying my mind….
