I, personally think that the norm for a destination wedding is whatever you want it to be! You describe your location as a classy garden, so class up your man! That doesn't have to mean a suit, but at least a tie and maybe a vest, if you like that look? Close your eyes and imagine what your man would wear...then I'd go with that!

I can't decide on a formal suit, a linen suit, a vest and pants, or a shirt with suspenders. I'm not having a beach wedding but I am having a classy garden wedding in the tropics. I don't want guests to look dressier than the groom but I don't know what the norm is....Any help is appreciated.

We are doing the suit/pants in Ivory and the long sleeved Amalf shirts in Coral.  I got some fabric samples from them and I'm impressed with quality.  Make sure to post these on their Facebook page. They give you a refund of 10% if you spent more than $500!

I communicated with Island Importers in regards to a refund, and they are not offering that promotion anymore :(! BUT, they are now offering a $75 credit to items on their site for posting pictures to them. Better than nothing :)! Thanks for the advice!

Well we are not having any luck finding groom and groomsmen attire in the stores with the exception of one pair (the last ones!) of Cubavera linen pants (real light tan color) my fiance found at Macy's that he loves. Now I am thinking we would like a vest to match for my fiance and the same (or very similiar pants) for the groomsmen and long sleeve linen shirts for all the guys. Anyone know of where to look besides Island Importers (they are a little more expensive). We are also looking for light colored sandals (not flip flops) which also seem very hard to find. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give!

I am also stumped on where to find GM suits. And groom. I am torn between going the formal route or just getting one of the $99 suits from Studiosuits,com. They look good in the pics but I'm nervous my luck will be different.

They are going to be hard to find this time of year. 

Check online. Maybe Sears Outlet online, or another store like that that will keep its inventory posted. They may not have a lot of sizes, but you may be able to find something. Does Le Chateau keep their stuff available online?

 

Good luck!

If you're located in Toronto, there is a Le Chateau outlet store on Orfus rd (near Yorkdale mall). They have lots of mens suits, vests, pants and shirts. I actually found out about it based on the suggestion of another bride who posted earlier in this thread. She posted her FI outfit and I loved it!!

Also check Old Navy online. Not 100% certain about men's linen but I saw women's linen pants there recently on the site. Also, Gap and Banana Republic are linked to that site once you're there. I order regularly from them. Shipping is free if you spend over $50 and returns can easily be made by mail or just take into the store and return.
