    I attended a wedding in St. Lucia and the groom and groomsmen rented and brought tuxes from Mens Wearhouse with no problems! As another poster said, they just had to rent them for a week.

     

    I had to take this opportunity to show off my groomsmens' ties, which I absolutely LOVE! I found and bought them a couple of months ago at a Vineyard Vines outlet (just $40 each, almost 1/2 price!!). I took the pics with my phone, so they're not totally clear, and the pink is lighter in person. They're margarita glasses, limes, and shakers of salt:) I love it for a Mexico wedding!



    Hey Nicyx! Do you know if your FI and his guys are buying or renting their tuxes / suits (if applicable)?

     

    Can the other 2011 brides or past brides also advise on this? I am not sure if my FI can rent a suit and bring it to and from Mexico without issue.  He asked me about this and I had no idea.  We live in New Jersey (USA - for my UK / Canadian / Island / and anyone that I missed - brides)

     

    Thanks a bunch!

      After posting that I was cruising the VV website searching for a tie for my FI (I plan to buy him a tie just in case he goes that route!) and found this one which I thought was super cute and had to share for any of you that are searching for ties for the wedding:) http://www.vineyardv...____25051_13050

       

      Though my FI is picky and I know he would refuse to wear a starfish tie, so I also fell in love with this one, which is more his style (and available in aqua, which would match my bridesmaids' dresses!) http://www.vineyardv...____25051_13050

       

      I love tie shopping, if you can't tell haha

            I am so glad that my FI is not wanting to wear shorts. We havent started looking for his outfit and the groomsmen yet, but it will be semi formal as we arent getting married on the beach.

              hahahaha my FI picked linen pants, because his legs aren't that photogenic!

              Thus linen shirts and pants for all the boys, no tie (I think it is very cruel to ask men to wear ties or suits when it is 35C in July)

                FI is wearing a linen suit, however his groomsmen are wearing dress shorts and short sleeve dress shirts! I like that it will be a little more casual...plus we are asking that our guests NOT wear suit and tie...it's going to be way too hot for that! LOL
