DH's family is getting together for his grandmother's 95th b'day at the end of the month. My MIL wants to get a family picture since everyone will be there. DH's Aunt decided take it a step higher and hire a professional photographer and wants everyone to coordinate outfits. She's suggesting Black Tops and Khaki Pants for the adults and plaid for the kids and the grandmother in whatever color she wants
Here in lies the issue:
No one likes the outfit ideas. I personally think it's too much black/tan. There will be 15 adults and 6 kids. I feel if all adults are wearing black polos, they'll just look like a bunch of heads on top of a black background.
DH's family is very stubborn. DH will NOT wear khaki pants, This person won't buy this etc. My uncle wont wear jeans etc.
I'm going to call my Aunt and ask her to speak to the photographer and get his/her opinion. But i wouldn't mind having some suggestions too. I think it would look nice to have coordinating outfits, but I think they need to be a little more flexible. Maybe just desiganate black with blue/orange and get everyone to wear something along those lines???
