Hi Beaches.. The shirts are linen. I too was originally looking for something with purple embroidery but had a very hard time finding anything that I liked, then I came across these palm tree shirts and loved them! For me, the palm trees outweigh matching the GM to the BM :)

My FI is so stubborn. He is convinced he is wearing a classic black Tux, but I want him to wear khaki pants and a white shirt. He thinks he will be too casual next to me and my wedding gown. Maybe that JCrew grey suit will be a happy medium for the 2 of us!

 

Thanks for the ideas! I've got my fingers crossed, hoping he will go for it :)

My hubby wore a cream coloured CK suit with a white shirt and coral tie, brown belt and brown sandals.  The boys wore slightly darker suits from Tommy Hilfiger -- no tie but same sandals.

Oryx----they look so nice! 

 

I think i'm looking for the same thing in Grey.  My fiance will wear the whole suit, and the guys just matching shirts and pants.  I'm having a hard time finding something affordable online!

Thanks Jamie!

 

I know, it is tough... my hubby didn't want to order online and he didn't want linen.  We waited until the summer here in Toronto and got all of the suits as they were being marked down.  Paul (my hubby) got his suit from Tip Top Tailors at 50% off in mid-July.

 

If you're will to wait until the summer, you might be able to find some light grey suits also.  My dad got his suit in light grey from Stars, also in the summer.

 

Best of luck!  :)

We talked about my FI wearing a grey suit to go with our colors but when he tried one on we didn't think it really suited him well (pardon the pun, lol!). He looks good in darker colors so tan suits were out of the question. The suit we decided on is black with faint grey pin-stripes and looks great on him! Unfortunately he won't let me take pictures of him in the suit (I can't see how he's going to look just like he is not going to see how I look, lol) so I'll have to sneak a picture of just the suit at some point. wink.gif He'll probably wear a blue shirt and I'll leave the tie choice up to him. cheesy.gif

Thanks for the tip about 1/2 price suits...my FI wants to wear a beige linen-type material suit and the GM are going to wear the same pants and just a white dress shirt.
