Creative Wedding Ideas: Groomsmen Attire

Updated on February 28, 2014

A Different Approach

After explaining the trials and tribulations attached to selecting wedding colors, my dear sweet fella kindly responded to my request for him to choose the groomsmen’s attire. Interestingly, he ignored my emphasis on the word “SUIT” and opted for a more creative option (to match our personalities, I’m sure, since he always has the best intentions): New York Yankee jerseys.

That’s right, baseball uniforms…actually he wasn’t clear if they were going to wear the shirts with dress pants or if they were going to be decked out from head to cleat. Being as detail-oriented as he is, he even carefully selected which of his favorite players would be represented. He thinks of everything! What a lucky girl I am.

This may come as a surprise, but I’m willing to accept this idea…on one condition. This guy has to be a member of the wedding party (but don’t be surprised if we run off together before the ceremony).

Always The BEST Man


I Won The Pink Battle


In Case Derek Is Busy....

My betrothed’s other idea was for the groomsmen to wear capes because they are “superheroes”…I’m not sure in what alternate universe, but who am I to judge? Being the flexible, understanding, non-bridezilla type of princess, I searched high and low for a cape appropriate for the occasion and found the perfect one! So darling, feel free to pass this image onto the groomsmen so they can be on the lookout for this design-remember everyone must match for it to be proper! I just know the six regal gentlemen you have chosen are going to feel even more honored to stand next to you in this get-up, as you score yourself one smokin’ hot life-partner.

Now, I hate to ruin a surprise, but in light of our public conversations about private issues I thought I’d share my ideas for my outfit. Since we have (he has) decided to really express our true personalities, I’ve put this little ensemble together.

They Come In Pink For The Bridesmaids

God Bless Us, Everyone

I sincerely believe that the priest at our Catholic ceremony will be overjoyed with our choices. After all, we are celebrating two of God’s great creations: the UNC Tarheels and the New York Yankees. Who can argue with that?

PS: To my sweetheart, if you ever refer to Carolina Blue as “powder blue” again, I will tie all of your shoelaces into one huge knot and smear them with honey. Smooches!

Maybe I'll Go Find Someone Named Bill Instead
