Hahahhahhaa. When I have read this I have had a flash! 

My Fi was as yours at the start.... He told me that if he cannot see my wedding dress, then I could not see his suit... At the end, I conviced him that it is not the same (you know, the bad luck thing it is only with the gown). 

LOL!

They offer super cheap decent suits, I haven't ordered from them, but may in the future.

Hi all! My FI is looking for gray (linen or light weight) pants and possibly a vest for his groomsmen.  We found one on J.Crew which he bought for himself, but they are too expensive for the GM.  Any suggestions on where we can find gray linen?  We have found a lot of tan and white but not much gray.  Thanks!!

Anyone looking for a lightweight pant, Costco has a fantastic pair of Dockers on sale over the past week. They offer a kahki and a light grey colour. They are soo nice. Its a golf pant so they are made to take the heat. I bought 6 pairs and all the guys loved them.

Actually the boys' mom found these ones at a much better price! They're from a store in Ontario too But the sorry has pink stripes so she's gonna get them white shI rts from gap instead. Hippie this helps! http://www.adorable-kids.com/Vest_Dress_Shirt_Pants_Tie_Red_Deer_p/103-gy.htm

Ouch!! I guess I will eventually have to chose from this one or the other vendor. When will you be placing your order?

Oops I sent you that adorable kids link assuming you were going for the same colors as me. I don't think this one comes in the beige. But they have other really cute options ;)

I'm wondering if anyone's fiance/husband wore a black suit or tux in Mexico. Was it too hot? 
We got married in November at 4:30 pm. Hubby wore a black suit with faint grey pinstripes. I thought he might be hot but he wanted to wear it and actually kept his suit jacket on until the dancing. I don't remember it being that hot. So I guess it all depends on when you're getting married and the time of day.
I just read through a bunch of these comments . . . am I the only one with a groom who won't let me know what he is wearing? All I know is that it will be a suit. Scary!
My husband was like this. But then realistically he realized that he couldn't keep it a total secret because he needed me to help shop for his clothes since he was busy with work. Plus my mom bought his suit. But I let him keep his tie choice a secret although I had some idea. Haha. But he resented the fact that he couldn't keep everything a secret when my dress was a secret. Haha.

Yeah, I was wondering if you posted the wrong link when I clicked on it. Then I read this. Lol. Unfortunately, they do not have the color I'm looking for. I think I'm just going to end up purchasing from etsy :/

Have you found them yet?  I've been looking for something very similar and can't find it for under $450.  Already checked Mens warehouse, Jos Bank and online at Macy's and JC Penny.

My mil is a seamstress so that definitely helped plus she was able to make slight alterations to a few of the suits. The quality, packaging and overall order experience was great. They emailed me to tell me they thought a few of my measurements were off and wanted to know if they could change them. These changes definitely did help! Imo suit jackets are too hot for the Caribbean if you're having a beach wedding and were more formal then we wanted. The guys wore their own brown belts and white shirts to save on costs which worked out perfectly. They all wore the same brown shoes. We did not do boutonnieres as my husband doesn't like them and it cut down on costs too. I did tons of research to figure out our groomsmen attire and how to differentiate the groom and in the end it worked out perfectly!

Do you know what exact pants those are? Also, was the linen thick enough to not be able to see through them? They look awesome in the pictures and great quality. Up close what did you think of the weight of the pants?

 

I absolutely love your pictures.

FH is planning on wearing a suit, while the groomsmen will be in dress pants and white shirts, so he's the only one really at risk of heat stroke. We're getting married in November and I was hoping it wouldn't be as crazy hot during the day as it is in the summer down there. So happy to hear that your husband wasn't overheated in his suit :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
