    I'm torn on what to do for his suit. My dress is ivory, the BM is wearing an Ivory Guayabera short sleeved shirt.... I'm not sure if my Fiance should wear Ivory as well, or something a little darker for some contrast with an ivory shirt. I think that would be my preference. I am not enjoying this!

        I have been trying to tell my brother that Brides are NOT the only ones that must wear white. That is an old tradition and smash the idea! I love the idea of the white linen suit.

        Can someone post pictures of your wedding so that I can see it all together? I just need some visuals.

            We ended up getting the FI the following jacket and matching pants:

            John W. Nordstrom® Two Button Linen Sportcoat - - Nordstrom

            It was a little more than we originally planned on spending (though it came with free alterations) but it's something he'll get more use out of - he won't be wearing this for the TTD!

            We're leaning towards going with ivory cubavera shirts and natural linen pants for the groomsmen. The FI had suggested white shirts, but my dress isn't diamond white (he hasn't seen it), so I had to step in and nix that idea.

            Here is what we're leaning towards:

            Natural - Linen Pants Linen Trousers Pants [] - $46.00 : Studiosuits.com, Custom Suits | Designer Suits

            Linen Rayon Blend Destination Wedding Shirt for men.: Beach Wedding Shirts | Guayaberas, Linen Pants, Boys Linen Shirts, Mexican Wedding Shirts.

            Let me know what you think - we have to pull the trigger sooner or later!

              This thread has helped me out so much-My FI doesn't give me any input at all-these links help me out tremendously! I am still trying to decide on white or tan. I think i want tan to add color to the pictures.

He hated the look of linen suits, he said they were too casual. He ended up picking out a tan suit with a fine satin pin stripe from MEXX (it was on sale for $130!).
                FI has let me pick out everything and do everything but he wanted to pick out his suit - whenhe came home with a white suit i was a little unsure, but it's grown on me - there is no "have him do anything"

                  DH wore a white suit from a Ralph Lauren employee sample sale which I actually bought for him 4 years ago before we were even engaged - weird. He paired the suit with a white linen dress shirt and brown shoes/belt. He did not complain about the heat.

                    Thank you. It was the right choice. Our bridesmaids wore turquoise blue and groomsmen wore black tuxedos with turquoise blue and we asked all our guests to wear colorful outfits. No funeral wear. It worked out well! In my opinion I would suggest the groom to wear white or diamond white or ivory because other people will wear tan suits. He won't stand out if he wears a tan or black outfit.
