            LOVE RIU!  I've stayed at a number of their resorts.  They never disappoint :)

              Hi Canadian Brides,

               

              I'm looking for some advice on where to buy men's linen pants and dress shirts.  I went to the obvious choice ... Tommy Bahama ... and of course I fell in love with an outfit, but it is waaaaay too much money for our budget.  I'm talkin' $300 for each groomsmen.  I can't ask them to spend that much.  So, I'm looking for other ideas?  I know we are also limited in terms of the time of year to buy this kind of thing due to our seasons, so I'm getting antzy.  We are getting married next May and I don't want to leave it to the last minute!

                I found some linen items at Le Chateau when we were looking. I'm from Edmonton and a few mens stores here had them like Colony Clothing in West Edmonton Mall.

                  i didnt end  up having to pay any extras for anyone over the 10 ppl. i just asked about why we are paying 10.50 pp (i did free package) and when the answer was lame (for extra cake and champagne -- which i didnt need and then they said for chair rentals -- WTH ummm no they are already there) so she ended up charging me nothing.

                   

                  also i refused to pay $550 for the steel drum band and she told me with the free package a dj for the ceremony is included!!

                    Check out Old Navy. We bought FI's and his best man's shirt there in the spring, and FI's dad got linen pants there too. Not sure what they have now, but FI has worn the linen pants in Mexico before in July, and was perfectly comfortable. And you cannot beat the price!
