    I think it depends on your dress.

    If I end up with a big princess dress then the groomsmen will probably be in long sleeve shirts and vests (still formal but not as hot as a suit jacket).

    If I get a more destination type dress (which is what I'm leaning towards), then short sleeves all the way.

      we are having the groomsmen wear short sleeved white linen shits and mike is wearing a line suit.
      i started to get the Vineyard Vines colored shirts but it got crazy looking cause my MOH is wearing apple green.
      i found a great site w lined shirts etc, i will look for it and post it soon. its getting hard to find linen this time of the year

          My groomsmen are wearing a tan suit with long sleeve white shirt, tie and vest. Very formal because we are having a church ceremony and a formal sit down 5 course meal reception.

            That thread Meg&Shay posted will help a lot. We are only having a best man and our officiant is our friend, so they are wearing black silk shirts (like the Tommy Bahama ones) with ivory linen pants. It looks nice all together. I would love for them to wear a suit but my FI doesn't want to.

              My fiance is wearing a tan linen suit from Banana Republic with an orange tie and some type of shoes we have yet to figure out :)

                My finance is wearing a tan linen suit by Perry Ellis from Macy's. The groomsmen have matching pants and ordered white linen shirts from Isladn Importer: Linen Majorca Shirt - Island Importer

                Brown leather sandals for everyone.

                    After much worrying I FINALLY found FI's suit!! I had ordered an Express suit off Ebay but it did not look good on him (jacket wayyyy too short) and the material ended up being too thick for the beach. I got so lucky last week at the Banana Republic Outlet! They had a bunch of tan suits and but no jackets in 42L, although they did have his size pants. I snatched them up and had the cashier call around and he found the matching jacket at a store in Atlantic City. I ordered the jacket over the phone from the AC store and prayed that it would look good on him!! Thank God, the entire suit fits him perfect and does not need any alterations! Since FI waited until now to start looking for suits, no stores here in MD were carrying tan suits anymore. I am so glad we found this as I was at the end of my rope. The jacket was $99 on sale from $260 and the pants were $50 on sale from $98.

                    We went to Express to get the groomsmen tan pants and white shirts. We used a coupon "buy $160 get $40 off" and when I told the cashier it was for our wedding, he gave us an extra $20 off!! The white shirts (the same one as FI has on in the picture) are buy 1 get one 50% off ($4 and the pants are buy one ($50) get one for $37.50.

                    I hope this helps any ladies doing some last minute shopping like we were!

                    p.s Sorry FI is so angry looking...he did not want to model for our blog!! LOL

                      LOL LOVE THE SUIT! I tried to get FI to model but he wasn't having it. I had to settle for pictures of the shirt alone.......boring!

                      your FI is a cutie though :) even angry looking!
