    My FI actually got his suit at the end of last summer, since it was on sale 40% off! He just got his shirt last week, and he bought the groomsmen shirts last week. We are all set for attire!!

I hope they fit him because I got them for $38 and I would be soooo happy to have his outfit done! Now if I could only find my shoes...
      My FI is wanting guayaberas also for him and the guys. Where are you planning on getting them from? also, macy's has some linen pants and there's a sale this weekend so if the one's from Lord & Taylor's don't work out you can check there!

        We ended up finding our shirts at Steinmart...they had lots of choices for guys shirts! We went with an off white for the guys and a white shirt for my FI! Not bad price either...$25!

        The pants we got at a Haggar Outlet. They are Cool 18's so hopefully the guys won't sweat their **S off!

        HEre's some pics of my FI and one of our Groomsmen modeling!

            nsbride- I'm super jealous! I wish his outfit was finalized already so we can move on to the GM shirts.

            cathyandchin- Thanks for the Macys recommendation. It's next on my list for linen pants. I found the guayabera shirts on the website Beach Wedding Attire & Dresses, Linen Wedding Pants, Shirts, Guayabera, Hawaiian, Havana, and Linen Suits I'm pretty sure I found the recommendation from the forum. This is the shirt my FI wants:

            Men's Beach Wedding Shirts

            Welcome Debbie! I hope your planning is going well.

            I made my dress fitting appoint for May 5th but I still haven't my shoes. I've been going crazy and I'm ordering a few pairs from online because I have not seen anything I like in the stores. I hope to order my OOT bags asap. The days are ticking away!!

                    FI is finalllly going shopping this weekend with groomsmen to pick out their outfits! I know his outfit it much simpler to get than mine, but still has me in a bit of a panic that its 2 months till we leave and still nothing...hopefully this weekend they will find something great! :)

                    Has anyone else been having trouble with their vows? I'm trying to think of ideas for writing mine, I want them to be unique, not the same thing everyone says all the time, but I'm not a creative person, which makes it hard...

                    Is anyone else doing personal vows?

                      Krista I'm writing my own! Theknot.com has some great tips and places to start! FI and I are going to write our own and then compare...

                      On another note, B bought my wedding bands today, one will be in on the 7th and the other on the 21st or something! He is so organized!!
