    I haven't told my mom about the non-bouts attire, I have a feeling she will have an issue with it as well. haha. We will probably get them for our dad's.

My dad will be doing the same thing, just a dress shirt and pants. Thanks ladies!


      All the men for us... best man, fathers, and FI, are wearing dress shirts with pants. No vests or anything. At first I was not sure, but we are going to have bouts. I made them for free here. They are shells. We are getting one flower one included in our package, which FI may wear instead. I have seen pictures that look fine with it just on a plain shirt, and it adds something nice I thought.

      Just another perspective!

        Do you have a link to the dress shirt your guys are wearing?

          We have been having THE hardest time finding his dress shirt - I swear it's harder than my dress was. All the sleeves seem to be so puffy on everything. He ended up buying one from Macy's, the brand Bar III - the link for the exact color isn't online.

            Try that one... This is a little different. We got ours last summer and they are long-sleeved I think (and the boys are planning to roll up the sleeves after to keep it casual). This is the short-sleeved version. But it is a similar style and structure.

             

            This is more casual than ours... but you can see the bouts on plain white without a tie or jacket. Again, short sleeves though. But at least you get the idea.

            I ordered the guys attire and I absolutely love it.  Like the picture below..however, my FI will be wearing ALL white.  I also ordered black and white leis as that is our colours.

            Past brides... Was a tux too much for your groom for a beach wedding?

                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.
