    Fist off I am a newbie to this site and forum and I want to thank everyone for their warm welcomes on the nebie forum. This is my first posting on the Cabo forum and I hope to have plenty more. Once I start getting information, hopefully I can answer other brides questions. I have not set my date yet but I am trying to work out all the details before I do. My fiance asked a good question and I thought I wolud pose it here. As far as the tuxes or suits, did your future husband and the groomsmen wear tuxes, suits or a tropical shirt/dress shirt with khakis? Also if they wore a tux/suit did you rent it from your home town or in Cabo? Do you have to pay extra to keep the tux for 8 days? If you rented it in Cabo, where? Any input or ideas would be helpful. I don't think I want him to wear a tux but it just seems proper to do so.

    Also everyone keeps saying send me a PM. I'm asuming that is a personal message. How do you do that?

      Ok, I typed this out before - but the page didn't load... so I will try it again (and maybe save the text just in case it happens again!!!)
      My FH will be wearing Khakis and a tropicalish shirt (maybe white linen) so I'm not much help for the suit rental.
      But regarding the Private Messages - if you go into User CP at the top left of your screen, in the following page there is a menu bar on the left side with options for private messaging, let me know if you have troubles with that.

        I think most people are NOT having the men wear tuxes - though there are some! Here is a good thread to check out ...

          I am not married yet, but I am asking that my FI wear a tan/ivory suit for the wedding. We went to Macy's on Sunday and found this wonderful suit, but it was not made for tropical weather. I also found some great suits at Zara and Brooks Brothers. Brooks Brothers actually make suits for tropical weather, which is great.

            I am wearing a tan linen suit, white broadcloth cotton shirt and brown leather sandals. I love the look of the linen suit, but if it gets too warm I like the way the pants look with just the shirt also. There are lots of ideas on the thread posted above to get you thinking in different directions.

              I think FI will be wearing a tan suit. I told him he could just do some tan linen pants & a white linen shirt, but he feels like he won't be dressed up enough compared to me in my dress. I was going to look into rentals because I haven't been able to find exactly what he wants yet.

                Another option for suit and/or linen clothing is the clothing line Tommy Bahama. It's an "island line" from Tommy Hilfiger that has an tropical feel with tropical colors, lightweight material and designs/

                See: Tommy Bahama

                That is probablly what my FI is going to wear.

                    The best part of a DW is that he can wear whatever he wants - tux looks hot, suit looks fab, khakis and a tshirt is casual chic. ANYTHING GOES!!!

                      My husband was planning on wearing a tan suit, with no tie and shirt out. It was soooooo hot that day that he ended up taking the jacket off and he was still sweating. I didn't mind, it's a destination wedding and anything goes, even very last minute wardrobe changes.
