Now that we’ve covered my bridal clothing ad nauseum, it’s time to share the spotlight with the men.
Mr. Rucksack is quite a dapper dude. He’s a lover of all things preppy, so his closet is very full of oxford shirts, bow ties, and embroidered pants. Since he’s definitely a man who knows what he likes and because he has such great taste, I’ve left it up to him to choose the attire for the guys’ side of the bridal party.
Luckily being on the beach, it was an easy decision.
Our boys will be all prepped out in Nantucket reds—an item which I’m pretty sure at least half the boys already own. They’ll pair those with white button downs, navy blue blazers, and a playful patterned bow tie of their choice. We’re trying to keep things as simple and inexpensive as possible for our entire bridal party, and that comes with the added bonus that they get to feel comfortable with their choices. Plus, I think it’ll be really cool to see a bunch of cute boys with mismatched preppy bow ties.
Mr. Rucksack chose this tie from Country Club Prep
I’m so happy with his choice and I think our boys will look great. I’m also happy that they won’t have to spend much money, an issue we may have had if we had gone with tuxes or Mr. Rucksack’s second choice: seersucker suits.
What are your guys wearing? Did your man choose his own outfit?
