    Your guys would melt in a tux. Try a lighter suit like other people have mentioned. The linen suits look pretty beachy still but a little more formal than just khakis and a white shirt. I did the white shirt/khaki look but my wedding ws super casual. Do what works for you and your groomsmen.

      Since we are getting married in a garden and not at the beach, my FI is going to wear a tuxedo, which is actually a step down from the formal mess dress (he's military) that he had originally planned to wear.

        Khaki all the day, but I've never liked the look of tuxes so even if we were in a formal church my man wouldn't be wearing a tux. It's reallywant you want to do though. I've seen tuxes on the beach and it doesn't look bad.

          I like the light suit look for a destination wedding. And I think our groomsmen will just be wearing white shirts and khakis with no jacket.

            Nice, crisp, tailored khaki pants and a linen shirt can be very dressy. A tux is elegant, but doesn't belong on a beach -- it would look out of place and besides, the guys will melt, leaving you with a bunch of miserable, whiny guys on your hands

              I hear you guys with the being hot thing, but I dunno I just envision my wedding pictures with me in a wedding gown and him in a black suit/tux! When we talked about the attire for the guys, and I mentioned the black suit or tux, he wasn't against it.

              Thanks for sharing photos, and you all look awesome in the casual look! I am still torn

                FI is wearing a white suit. i would have been ok with him wearing something more casual but he likes to get dressed up and wants to match me. So not a tux, but a suit and tie - he's also wearing shoes...no flip flops or sandals for him!

                  A black suit and tie would be ok! Maybe a summer suit. Sounds like a trip to Mens Wearhouse is in order!

                  Thanks ladies

                    FI will be wearing a tan suit, shirt and tie for our wedding. I am still debating on the groomsmen. I think I will relent and let them wear a nice light shirt and dress khakis. My preference would be for them to be in suits too but I just don't thik they'd be comfortable. FI and I wear suits to work everyday, including the summer, so we're used to it. I'm having a hard time envisioning my wedding having people dress more casual for my wedding than I dress on a daily basis, but at the end of the day, its such a little thing and I want people to be comfortable so I think I will just let it go.

                      I know what you mean- I like a less casual look too but there is no way I could stick my poor FI in a tux in that heat! We're also going with a light summer suit (in grey), white shirt, no tie. He can take the jacket off after pictures for the dinner this way, too. I think this splits the difference a bit- it's not too formal for a DW but it's still dressed up next to the wedding dress.
                      Loving married life!
