Hi Melissa14! My husband wore a tux for our wedding @ Dreams Cancun. We got married at the Gazebo but had our Reception on the beach. I was concerned he was going to melt wearing all that clothing, but he was certain that he wanted to wear a tux at his wedding. The temp was between 82 & 86 degrees, but in that location, there is a constant strong breeze. I was also concerned that a tux might look out-of-place in our wedding photos on the beach & by the water...but I was mistaken. Looking back at the photos now, I couldn't imagine him wearing anything other than the tux. And, if I'm 100% honest, I was completely against the idea but went along with what he wanted to wear to his wedding At the Reception, the guys took off their jackets & wore their vests & shirts...and eventually some took off their vests. I'm guessing they were hot, but nobody ever said anything. I just asked my husband if he was happy with his decision to wear a tux, and he said Yes. So, when you say, "too much", I'm not sure if you mean "too formal" or "too hot", but in either case, for "us", we were happy with the decision...
PS: The Groom, Best Man, & Father-of-the Bride wore full tuxes. Our 3 nephews (little boys) wore slacks, vest & tie. Also, if I remember correctly, the tux rental place provided an additional shirt in case the guys needed to change into a fresh shirt.
