    I'm just curious, what does everyone have on tap for groomsman/FI wear? This is what we are thinking for the groomsmen:groomsmen.bmp

     

    And for my FI:

      Thats very similar to what I was thinking. I was gonna do groom in gray suit and groomsmen in gray pants, white shirt. But I really like the vest idea!

        Our guys are all super casual.  Khaki's and white linen shirts for the GM, and FI is in beige linen pants and an embroidered linen shirt....and bare feet all around.  Something like this:

          Proti - I love those suits, that is exactly the idea I have in mind for my FI and his GM's.  Where are those suits from?  Please let me know if you end up finding a reasonable price for an outfit like that, as I would love to find something on the less expensive side.  We have four GM's to buy for...eeek!

           

          Some bad news happened to me a few weeks ago and I was going to come on here and rant then, but I was so angry I decided to calm down first.  Sunquest decided to cancel the flight my group was flying on, and the only option was to leave four days earlier.  It really wasn't a huge deal, but I have sent out my save the dates, and now our wedding date has to be changed, because we were leaving on April 11th and the wedding was on the 14th, but now we have to leave on the 8th, and there is no way I am having my wedding the day before we leave.  The only other night available to have the wedding is on the 13th, which I am slightly superstitious about.  I just hate the fact that all my STD's went out with the wrong wedding date.  Makes me furious.  Apparently after all of this, I asked my TA if there was any chance things could get changed again, and she said YES...not very likely, but still, how can they expect us to pay all these deposits and then just switch our flights. 

           

          I am actually excited though, and turned this negative into a positive buy switching my wedding venue completely.  We are now getting married April 13th at the Jellyfish restaurant in Punta Cana, and I am soooooo excited about it.  I get to plan everything, and Mayte (the coordinator at the restaurant) said she will decorate however I want.  I like the idea that we are going to be taking our guests away from the resort for the night and having a more intimate wedding offsite.  I hope it all works out!

          Also, does anyone have ideas on their table setups?  I want a really contemporary feel.  My colours are lilac, slate gray and green.  I do want white table clothes and lots of candles, with a few hints of my colours.  Let me know what you guys are doing.

            Our GM are the same as Pam's but with shorts.  I think my FI might have a different top but very casual and barefoot too. 

             

            Natalie that really sucks!!!! But good to hear that it will work out for you in the end.  I've heard Sunquest is famous for their changes.  Hope this is the only one you have until you go!!!

                Nat, the suits I posted the pictures of are from JCrew, and are only available online. JCrew does ship to Canada, and these are the Cotton Ludlow suits. The pants are $118, the vest is $98, and the jacket is $248. We're getting the pants and vest for the groomsmen, and the jacket and pants for my FI. They often have 25-30% off sales PLUS deals on shipping, so I would wait until one of the promos come on if you are interested in ordering from them. We're also buying everything for our groomsmen and bridesmaids, and also have four couples...a HUGE expense, but we just sort of saw it as they're making an even bigger one by travelling for us. With shirts and ties, it'll be about $300 a groomsman. And I just found the most beautiful Amsale bridesmaid dresses! My FI is going to kill me ;)

Hope everyone is doing well with your planning, will try to put together a planning thread when I am back - Cheers!
