    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.

              I think I am leaning toward the black linen suit thing :)

              Great ideas!

                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?
