    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). 

    LOL!

      Hi all! My FI is looking for gray (linen or light weight) pants and possibly a vest for his groomsmen.  We found one on J.Crew which he bought for himself, but they are too expensive for the GM.  Any suggestions on where we can find gray linen?  We have found a lot of tan and white but not much gray.  Thanks!!

      Anyone looking for a lightweight pant, Costco has a fantastic pair of Dockers on sale over the past week. They offer a kahki and a light grey colour. They are soo nice. Its a golf pant so they are made to take the heat. I bought 6 pairs and all the guys loved them.

          Actually the boys' mom found these ones at a much better price! They're from a store in Ontario too But the sorry has pink stripes so she's gonna get them white shI rts from gap instead. Hippie this helps! http://www.adorable-...er_p/103-gy.htm

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

            Oops I sent you that adorable kids link assuming you were going for the same colors as me. I don't think this one comes in the beige. But they have other really cute options ;)

              I'm wondering if anyone's fiance/husband wore a black suit or tux in Mexico. Was it too hot? 

              We got married in November at 4:30 pm. Hubby wore a black suit with faint grey pinstripes. I thought he might be hot but he wanted to wear it and actually kept his suit jacket on until the dancing. I don't remember it being that hot. So I guess it all depends on when you're getting married and the time of day.

              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!

              My husband was like this. But then realistically he realized that he couldn't keep it a total secret because he needed me to help shop for his clothes since he was busy with work. Plus my mom bought his suit. But I let him keep his tie choice a secret although I had some idea. Haha. But he resented the fact that he couldn't keep everything a secret when my dress was a secret. Haha.

                Yeah, I was wondering if you posted the wrong link when I clicked on it. Then I read this. Lol. Unfortunately, they do not have the color I'm looking for. I think I'm just going to end up purchasing from etsy :/

                  Have you found them yet?  I've been looking for something very similar and can't find it for under $450.  Already checked Mens warehouse, Jos Bank and online at Macy's and JC Penny.

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!

                     

                     


                    Do you know what exact pants those are? Also, was the linen thick enough to not be able to see through them? They look awesome in the pictures and great quality. Up close what did you think of the weight of the pants?

                     

                    I absolutely love your pictures.

                      FH is planning on wearing a suit, while the groomsmen will be in dress pants and white shirts, so he's the only one really at risk of heat stroke. We're getting married in November and I was hoping it wouldn't be as crazy hot during the day as it is in the summer down there. So happy to hear that your husband wasn't overheated in his suit :)
