    I didn't think FI would wear a suit but that was his request so he will be wearing a linen suit with shit shirt NO TIE and the boys will be in linen pants with Navy shirts as our girls will be wearing Navy dresses.  I don't know if they will be a perfect match but this was sort of FIs idea so we went with it and I like it.

     

    He wanted us to be the only ones in "white" so he stands out from his boys too!  I personally like this idea as it is OUR wedding, he wouldn't do an all white suit and I don't like that anyways but I think the suit with white shirt while everyone else is wearing colour will be nice.  We have also opted to do A LOT of white through out wedding so the navy in our bridal party will be nice to pop in our pictures!!!

    The biggest issue I"m having is a color problem. We were considering all the guys in white button down shirts but I'd like my fiance to stand out a bit. The girls are wearing bright turquoise dresses. I can't figure out what would look better, my fiance in a blue shirt and groomsmen in white shirts or the opposite. I'm worried if the blue on the groomsmen isn't a good match to the dresses the whole thing will look weird. Suggestions?

      I meant to tell you that le chateau, mexx and lots of stores have TONS of colours of shirts, I bet you would be able to find a dress shirt that matches for your Groomsmen easily!!!!!

          We got these at a great price! FI is wearing the shirt and tie (left) with linen pants and a vest. GM are wearing shirt, tie, with just the linen pants! They match SOOOO well with the BMs attire!

            This is the only BM dress I could find online, we are going with this one for FIs daughter, the trim is going to be silver (just for a visual with the above)

                Yeah, FI isn't too crazy about it, but I coaxed him into it saying it had GREAT contrast and he liked the way they looked in the photos....not so much in person! LOL!

                 

                We got these at the store I work at, for the shirt AND tie we spent $30! Such a great deal :)!!! At times I HATE working two jobs, but for wedding purposes it's really coming in handy!

                  Here's the FI in his outfit.  He really loved these pants (These are the Le Chateau ones on sale for about $30, and they are the drawstring ones, so no hockey leg worries!).  He did splurge on a $175 Hugo Boss shirt, but he really loves it.  He is in Edmonton for work for three weeks, and his second day there he went out shopping for shirt and flip flops, and success! I was so proud he took initiative and went for it :D (Also I think he looks great!)

                  Groomsmen are wearing this, this is the Best Man.

                    Wow those drawstring pants look GREAT!!! I always shy away from the drawstring thing but these look awesome!!!!  I ordered the Old Navy Ones but if they come in and I am not please I will be returning them for these FOR SURE!!!

                      Hi girls! Thanks for the suggestions a few pages back! My fiance and I went shopping this weekend and I'm sooo happy! We found everything except for the groomsmen pants.

                       

                      My FI bought white linen pants and a white linen vest (instead of a suit jacket) at le chateau. We were also able to find a short sleeve dress shirt in the exact blue the girls are wearing. He will wear a white tie with it. I really like the idea of the two of us in white... Plus the blue shirt will break it up a bit.

                       

                      We found white button downs with roll up sleeves in a light weight fabric at Guess of all places! I think they are going to look amazing!

                       

                      The last thing is pants for the groomsmen. I love the linen ones at Le Chateau but they only have them at the outlet here. They have a "final sale" policy and 2 of our guys aren't in town to try them on!  I'm going to try and hunt some down online...
