    What are current or past brides doing for thier groom's suit or wedding day attire? We can't rent a suit here where we will live because of when they have to be returned, so do we need to buy one or is there places to get suits in Mexico?

      Many brides, myself included, bought linen suits from Studiosuits.com, Custom Suits | Designer Suits. They have various colors. I had the groom and groomsmen wear natural linen suits, and my brother, who walked me down the aisle, wore a beige linen suit. Each suit was $99, but about $125/ea. including shipping since they come from India. All the suits were of great quality, and my husband actually ended up ordering 2 suits, and now considering more.

        My men will be wearing a long sleeved linen shirt (rolled up) and linen pants. The groom will be wearing a white linen shirt with khaki linen pants, the groomsmen will be wearing light blue linen shirts with the same khaki linen pants. We just got the shirts and pants at a great Banana Republic outlet sale over the 4th of July weekend. I believe the shirts were $15 each and the pants were $20 each. My fiance and I picked up the clothes for all the guys while we were there to make sure we didn't run into any problems.

        Good luck deciding. (I may have preferred a suit for my fiance, but he really didn't want to wear one and I had to tell myself it is his wedding too)

          I think linen is probably the most popular material on here for the guys. My husband and his best man ordered linen shirts and pants from Island Importers and they turned out well. The more casual stuff is great and the shirts come in really nice colours!! And my hubby is of a more generous size and his clothes didn't cost extra. He was so excited he fit into their standard size!

          They have a wedding section with suits if you are having a more formal affair, and you can have the clothes custom tailored, which is important in a suit. $280US is not bad for a suit!

          Here's the link. Hope it helps!

            My groom and his groomsmen will be wearing beige linen trousers and white linen shirts, the groom, best man and pageboys will all have beige linen suit jackets with a turqoise handkerchief in the jacket pocket (this is my theme colour). I think linen is quite a popular choice because it is such a light material.
