Why do they need to be told what to wear? Can’t they just make the decision for themselves and wear whatever they think is comfortable as long as it fits the style of your wedding?

I think a nice pantsuit would be great, lots of times they are so nice looking you wouldn’t even notice they weren’t in a dress.

Normally, MOB & MOG will wear outfits & colors that will compliment each other.

@marinesfiance:

Not sure how heavy they would be, I would imagine there would be a few lighter fabrics that wouldn’t be too bad.

@marinesfiance:  Is the wedding in the daytime or evening? Do you consider the dress code to be casual?

Depending on the dress code, something like this- a lightweight printed tunic over pants could look more or less dressy depending on how it was accessorized

or a duster and tank set over pants

or a kimono and tank over pants

maybe not so much white, but this idea-chiffon topper over linen tank and pants

I’m sure they’d be comfortable in light silk/satin blouses, but I can’t imagine wearing pants outside in summer! I’d rather wear a skirt!

@marinesfiance:  Can you go shopping with them? Or I would just tell them dress slacks and a dressy top. Mayve your mom could send you pics of what she likes and if she’s on the right track?

@marinesfiance:  If they need ideas, go shopping together and show your mom and his mom (if she is requesting fashion advice) what styles and patterns are in fashion. They can pick their own clothes but maybe they just need some help updating their tastes unless they routinely read Vogue and other magazines.
