I’m sorry, but I personally don’t see how shorts can look anything but super casual and as you say…frumpy. I agree that trouser pants cuffed up at the ankle-like a more hipster style, seems a nice in between. That can be worn without a vest, but can still be paired with suspenders which is a tad more formal looking but might be comfortable enough for him.

No shorts… No no no shorts. No one wants to look at your grooms and groomsmen hairy legs and socks. You must convince him of this.

It’s a very casual look, best suited for the beach. He may think it’s fine now, but I would ask him to dress up a bit more so you have both memories and pictures that you both like years from now, when hopefully his taste has matured a bit.

To be fair, it has been done


ps make sure he doesn’t wear suspenders and a belt. It’s one or the other. The purpose of both is to hold up the pants or shorts. You never wear both at the same time.

Sorry, but I would definitely have to say no to the shorts. I just don’t like the idea of it.

NO. Maybe give him the option of changing after photos?

No shorts!!! He can wear shorts any other day, but he should dress up more for his wedding. He can be more low key with pants.
