My niece is getting married in two weeks and I'm trying to decide what the boys should wear. The ceremony is outdoors at an arboretum, and the reception is at a Holiday Inn. I really don't want to spend tons of money on clothes they'll wear just once. Plus, my picky little Cohen has a fit whenever we dress him in button down shirts. I'm pretty sure he'd be in all-day tantrum mode if we tried to put a tie on him.
Another thing - the arboretum has trails, a place to feed the fish, etc. There are a couple hours between the ceremony and the reception, and we'll be spending at least part of that time walking around outdoors. Do you think dressing the boys in matching polos and khakis would be appropriate? Would nice khaki shorts be pushing it? Or should I suck it up and put them in shirts and ties? That's what all my nephews wore to my wedding (ceremony at a church, reception at a country club).
