Tux or casual digs for the guys?

Recommended Posts

I am still undecieded on a linen suit or just kakhi's and a nice crisp shirt. I feel like because we are on the beach it needs to be a bit more casual but with me in my dress i want him to look good beside me. I am interested in seeing what others have to say as well. Thanks for this poll

Why not just go for the Khaki linen suit? That way you can get the suit/tuxy look and the casualness of the fabric in one ?!

 

I mean honestly we did Tuxes for our wedding but they were a lighter color and only because the hubby felt that he wanted the look of a tux, the kids wore linen pants and a guyabera linen shirt with long sleeves and short sleeves for the younger one!

I think my thing is I like the black color next to the ivory/white of the dress. I mean when it comes down to it we are all snazzied up (i.e. not wearing any old off the rack dress from your local department store) so I think the guys should be too!

 

Black just bumps things up a notch, even if it is a linen suit or whatever. I am asking guests to dress "beach chic" so khakis and linen stuff is ok for them, but I don't want my FI to blend in with the guests!!!!

 

I did not choose a DW because I wanted a casual environment, I wanted an environment that was beautiful and honeymoon wrapped up in one!

 

I dunno, that's just me...

Then just do black if thats what you like :) i know plenty of brides that have done black tuxes with no issues. If thats the way you want your wedding to look then go for it.

My fiance's stepsons are the "Best Men" and I wanted all of them to have the same pants, so I sewed all of them linen pants. They'll be wearing white linen long-sleeve shirts. I had originally planned on wearing a short wedding dress, and so they were all going to wear khaki shorts, but I changed my mind and am wearing a long gown, so I told him he had to wear pants. LOL. He wasn't happy about it, but the kids think it's great and LOVE their outfits!

My fiance bought a light linen suit and white shirt. I told him to not even worry about the jacket other than maybe for pictures. I am wearing a full length wedding dress but it doesn't have any under-skirting so it's very lean (more like a red carpet dress than a wedding poofy dress). I can't imagine wearing a tux on the beach. Just seems contradictory to me.

I voted for the more relaxed look b/c to me that's what a DW is all about. But do what you and your FI want and who cares what anyone else says or thinks! I like the look of both but I knew I wanted the more chill vibe to go along with my whole wedding.

Yea I really want more of a chill vibe for the reception, not the ceremony itself. I am changing to an ivory knee length dress for the reception and maybe he can change into the khaki look for that. Then we get the best of both worlds!!

 

You wonderful ladies have swayed me against the tux thing, but we will look for black linen suits over the summer for him. Mens Wearhouse a good place to look?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
