    Good afternoon everybody – so I decided to have an ALL WHITE wedding. The problem now is that I can’t figure out what I want my groom, best man and grooms party to wear…

    My bridesmaids are wearing turquoise – and my maid and matron of honor are both wearing 2 different colors that match with the turquoise… they will both have a slight different blue than my maids…

    Now here’s the dilemma I want my groom to wear a tux but he’s concerned that he will not be able to stand the heat… the best man wants to wear a white tux with a vest and tie matching the matron of honors dress – he doesn’t have a problem with the heat…

    Now for the rest of the men in the groom’s party I can’t seem to figure out what I want them to wear…. Should they wear a white shirt and beige pants or do you guys think they should all wear white and I can have them wear a tie matching the bridal party

    I need some serious outfit help here guys… please help me out! I don’t want my groom to be uncomfortable

      I think if you have the groom and BM in a tux, then all the groomsmen should wear a tux. I think it looks funny when some are formal and others are more casual.

      Maybe a light weight linen suit would be a good compromise-

      Or you could do a more casual white linen shirt and pants for the men. Lots of brides have done that.
      Happily married since 2008

        i second LC Rachel's suggestion of the white linen suit. We would be going that route too, but FI wears a suit to work every day and wants to be more comfortable for our wedding...

        you could either do shirts to match the BM dresses, or white shirts and just have the boutonneires (SP!) with ribbon that matches the BM...

            Men's Warehouse has a beautiful white linen suit that we looked at. We decided though, that if they were going to purchase a suit, they would get more use out of Khaki.

            I would say have the men wear white suits with a colored shirt, like the pic Rachel posted. The BM can wear a different shade and the groom can wear white.

              I found this picture and thought it was adorable, how about something like this? Of course not that shirt but the linen suit and maybe your ring bearer can have the oppositeClick the image to open in full size.
