I've blogged about the gifts I did for the girls... 
But have yet to mention the guys gifts! So here it is! :)

Mr. M and I decided early on we wanted him and his gents to wear western button up shirts, jeans, boots and hats. 
That was the easy part. 
The hard part was finding those western button up shirts. 

In case you didn't know... Western clothing. Decent quality western clothing is EXPENSIVE.
So to find a decent shirt, that was fairly affordable, that Mr. M would be seen in public in... TOUGH. 

Mr. M - My handsome husband
But we found one. 
Finally. And bought Mr. M and each of his groomsmen a black, Cinch, long sleeved, button up, western shirt! 
Cinch shirts are higher quality western shirts... 
That said, they ALSO served as the groomsmen's gifts. 
Knowing Mr. M's groomsmen they will be worn quite often after the wedding!


From there Mr. M requested black cowboy hats, boots and nice blue jeans. 
His gents didn't disappoint! 

The shades were a fun touch too. 
My brother wears glasses, so when they went to take this picture he didn't have shades... 
So he's wearing mine. ;) haha. 
See if you can pick him out?! ;)


*Oh! And on a keeping it real note... The dry cleaners in our town CLOSED down in the two weeks before the wedding... SO having the shirts professionally pressed went out the window... 
Mr. M looked them over a few days prior and decided they didn't need to be ironed.... 
Never let the groom determine the wrinkle status of clothing. 
They needed to be ironed. 
HUGE thanks to Miss Deidra, our good friend, for ironing shirt after shirt the MORNING of the wedding! :)

So what about you?
What did your groom and groomsmen wear? Or what will they wear?

hmmm... love a man in a cowboy hat! And a whole line of them? Nice! (is your brother the one all the way to the right? I never would notice but looked hard to pick out the most "rounded" frames)

We wore kilts for the rehearsal dinner and tuxes for the wedding...it worked well for us but I *love* linen pants on the beach and a hot stetson with jeans- men's ware can be just as fun!
