    My husband dressed differently than his groomsmen. I think it is fine to have the groom standout as it is his special day too :)

      Thanks ladies, I like the idea of him standing out a little more than the other guys i just didnt know if that would look weird.  Thanks for sharing your picture Mufin1785!

        We had a great experience ordering the guys linen vests (waistcoats) and trousers from Studiosuits.com. They are so affordable starting at $89 depending which fabric you use. We got the custom made ones and I'd recommend getting the guys measured by a professional seamstress. 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!

          My hubby didn't wear a tux however at my friends dw the groom and all the groomsmen wore black suits and they were sweating like pigs through the entire ceremony. I felt awful for them. It made the wedding look much more formal and if that is what you are aiming for then I'd suggest a ceremony time of 4pm or later to make it bearable for the guys

            Your wedding party looks awesome! Especially you two, you look beautiful! I love that he's the only one with the tie and the colour of the tie pops. Great job and good to hear Studio Suits worked out, as we're considering it for the groomsmen.

              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!

              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).

                  Hey JustNoelle. We're thinking of getting these for our 2 little ringbearers (3 and 4 yrs old). They're a bit pricier but so cute.

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