    okay so I can’t seem to find a picture of what I am thinking… but I am thinking like a light tan pant (something wide leg and very femanine) with a light blue or aqua top,(tucked in and maybe with some ruffles!) and white shoes. and I would DEFFINATELY have her carry a bouquet!

    ps if this is totally off style with her (or the rest of the wedding) i understand I am kinda just taking a shot in the dark!maybe you could post some of what the other girls are wearing so we know what we are matching her with!

    I would have her in something like this resort wear outfit.

    Ocean Pants SetThis example is from http://www.orvis.com

     I think you and your Fiance should be the only ones in white and tan doesn’t enter into your scheme anywhere else.

    Are your FI’s bridesmaids wearing bouts or carrying bouquets?

    I think your bridesmaid in pants should skip the white and fit in as best as possible with the colors of the other birdesmaids’ dresses.  Also, if everyone else up there will have bouquets, then give her a bouquet too.  I don’t think it will look weird.

    Tannish colored Linen Wide Legged Khakis…A blue top that matches whatever color blue your other maids are wearing and Brown shoes would look very good. A fitted top with some sort of Formal/girlish attribute to it like ruffles or bows would look very pretty IMO. If you really want to do the white shoes, I would try and throw in an additional accessory(belt, or neckscarf perhaps Definately patterned using the colors Blue and white to bring the whole look together…i love polka dotss personally). Im not sure where you live but alot of the white shoes Ive seen in my area come off cheesy. I would avoid the white pants cuz your Fiance is wearing white. If she is a Bridesmaid Id defiantely give her a bouquet not a boutineer. Im not very good with finding pictures of things but this is what im seeing in my head so I hope it helps!

    I think others have good suggestions about the clothes. When it comes to the flowers though, I think you ask her what she’d be more comfortable with. If you let her choose, she’s probably really appreciate it!

    I say khaki, because IMO you should be the only one wearing a lot of white. Also a bouquet, since she’s a Bridesmaid or Best Man. She’s already choosing to not be like the other BMs and wear a pant suit, it’s not going to kill her to carry a bouquet. But that’s just me 🙂

    @Ayslinn87: Ask her what she thinks about the flared pant, and based on her experience if it’s something that would look good on her.  Otherwise pretty much any darkish-colored dress pant will look great.

    I’m going to say khaki isn’t in your scheme, so no.

    But a lot of other bees say no white. That’s up to you.

    I do like the all blue pants and shirt idea.

    And either a bout or bouquet will work.
