You guys will have such an awesome time!
My husband and I actually lived in the Fairbanks area for about 10 years.
The best way to prepare for Alaska weather is to layer, layer, layer... You might have t-shirt weather, but it could also be cool or rainy.... I generally bring t-shirts, a neutral colored cardigan I can wear over them if it's cool, and then a hooded rain jacket with a zip out fleece lining. If you have those items with you, you'll be prepared for a wide range of temps.
You'll also want a hat and gloves for the day at the glacier, it's generally pretty cool there.
I think you'll find that you'll want to be wearing comfortable sneakers for shoes the majority of the time.
