I like the ties here if your Fiance and the guys were willing to wear it.

I don’t know about the short sleeve shirts…what about the regular long sleeve button up shirts with the sleeves rolled up a bit?  I would do all white shirts and then do the different ties like you’re saying…but it’s totally up to you, do what you think is best. I’m just offering my opinions. LOL =]

I don’t know nuthin’ about colors, but i’ll pitch in on your question regarding whether ties go with short sleeves. Cary Grant once said, “If I want to wear short sleeves, I’ll roll them up.” Or something like that.  Short sleeves and ties sorta bring me back to my first job as a stock boy at a grocery store.  And my first communion.

If you are committed to short sleeve shirts, I’d maybe forgo the tie since things aren’t that formal anyway. Otherwise you’ll have to do something very fashion forward to get it to look good (interestingly, this is a near direct rip-off of the glasses and fit of what the NASA boys were wearing in the 60s, as noted by The Style Guy, and i think the look is pretty badass—except for the pants—and would wear it to work, personally, if I was in a creative field):

Otherwise it will look like this:

Good luck!

I think it’s a good choice!  And if I had to pick out women’s clothing, I’d be desperately lost, so no worries there. They can man-up while they’re getting their pics taken, then they can roll those sleeves up. If they’re going to be terribly hot, you could go down the route of the seersucker shirt. But these are hard to find especially if you’re looking for a specific color/style. They’re very lightweight but not terribly dressy.  But you can pair it with a tie, unlike most linen shirts. Here’s an example from Rugby Ralph Lauren. They have them in white, blue and one in pink. You’d probably have to go with what I guess you’d call non-dressy ties. Cotton. Knit. Something other than the shiny silk stuff (which won’t look right next to the preppy, casualness of seersucker). But otherwise, if you want to keep them a bit more dressy, I’d just make sure they’re in some sort of lightweight cotton and they’ll be just fine until they get to the part of the day where they get to roll’em up and undo the tie πŸ™‚

(GD it. Now I want one of these shirts.)

I agree with your thought of going with the long-sleeve shirts and then letting the guys roll them up.  I think its a really nice look but still protrays the more casual feel of your day that led you to think of short sleeves.
