What did your groom wear to the wedding?

Recommended Posts

My guy and I are having a debate about what he should wear. I've told him that its going to be hot and possibly humid in Jamaica and that he should look for a light/breathable suit preferably in a light color. (He doesn't have a suit to wear in the spring/summer so I thought this would also make a great addition to his wardrobe.) He wants to rent a tuxedo and "be dressed in style" on his big day. I'm concerned that he'll be really hot and uncomfortable. What did your guy wear to the wedding? Help me give him some great options.

hi my now husband wore black pants, a white shirt and waistcoat it would have been way too hot if he had a jacket on as well, the bestman wore the same as did both dads and they were complaining it was too hot, tho it was only for the ceremony and 1 hour or so of pics after. We did see a couple of weddings were the groom had a tux on!

I think that if I had wore a black tux to my wedding in July I would have stabbed myself in the neck to end the torture. It was hot hot hot on the beach in Mexico in July.

 

I wore a tan linen suit and I was still roasting.

My husband wore his military dress blues for our pre-ceremony pics and the actual ceremony ... but he was sweating in balls off the moment he stepped outside in it.

 

We had khaki pants and a light shirt for him to change into for the reception ... and he changed almost the MOMENT the ceremony was over b/c he was ssoo hot.

 

We are glad he wore his dress blues ... but just as glad we had a second outfit for him to change into.

 

Here are pics of each outfit:

My DH wore a tux - totally his idea. I told him to wear linen pants and a dress shirt. We got married in January, but it was still insanely hot. Sam rolled his tux pants up after the ceremony and took off the jacket, so that helped a bit. We both made it through dinner, but changed right after cutting the cake.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
