Our wedding party is large and a bit different. With seven boys standing up with Mr. Narwhal, and two boys and five ladies standing up with me, there was a lot to figure out.
With the ladies in mind, Mr. Narwhal and I discussed what he wanted for himself and the boys. I wanted things to mesh well together but, again, didn’t want to go for the matchy-matchy. Mr. Narwhal was set on a slate blue vibe of sorts, and the two of us spent a lot of time Googling, Pinteresting, and discussing options.

Mr. Narwhal didn’t want to put his friends out, and we’ve decided that the boys will all wear the same pants, but have a choice of what they wanted to wear on top. They could choose a vest, suspenders, or jacket with a tie or bow tie. This was our inspiration:
We’re still on the quest to find the perfect pant. We’re on the fence between a dress pant and a chino. We loved the sharp look of this California wedding party and the perfection of the slate blue.
Figuring out how to pull this look off and finding the perfect pant is a matter of a trip to the city. I have full confidence in Mr. Narwhal—the boy has some serious style and a keen eye for men’s fashion. We just need to make the time to hit the stores!
Now, this leads to my boys. I want it to be known that they’re standing up with me, so dressing them the same as the groomsmen didn’t make sense. After seeing a picture on Pinterest (that I cannot find!) with two boys standing up on the bride’s side, I decided that the bridesmen will wear the same taupe colour pant as the ladies’ dresses. Once we figure out the groomsmen pant style, my boys will go for a similar style in taupe.
Figuring out what everyone will wear has been a fun, yet tedious task. There are still details to figure out, but I have faith in our wedding party to pull it off!
How did you decide on what the boys would wear?
