    I'm trying to figure out what I should show FI as some suggestions as to what to wear. Even though he's literally letting me dress him, LOL! I don't want him to be over the top dressed up (no bow ties, etc), but I know that he still wants to wear a tux. My dress is pretty elegant still and I don't want him to look way too casual next to me. 

     

    This is my dress


    Bonus points if you show pictures of your men or inspiration pics!

      Hi there... We actually went suit shopping yesterday, intending to look at the tan/khaki linen suits at Brooks Brothers, Lord & Taylor and JCrew. And we did, but we also got drawn into the classic seersucker suit too. But thinking we may do that for rehearsal dinner night. My FI is basically letting me dress him too, so I was very surprised when he got excited about this suit (pictured below). Not what I expected at all! And after some thought & discussion, it has grown on me. Probably not the bowtie, but the rest of the suit would work. It would be SO unique, which I love and he seems happy. And more formal than the tan suit. Still not sure if we pull the trigger though.

        depending on your location and when you are getting married, take into account the heat. I have photographed a groom in all linen, which completely soaks through with sweat and is very obvious. my groom this week wore a gray suit which is harder to see sweat through although it is heavier

        For my fiance, we ordered a custom linen suit (in smoke) from

        www.islandimporters.com

         

        Our groomsmen will wear matching custom linen pants in smoke and an ivory short sleeved linen shirt from the same website. 

         

        I cant wait to see it!

          You're much braver than I am! LOL! I'm not sure either of us would go for it, but I'm sure it'll be awesome for you guys!

           

          We're getting married on the Oregon coast so it doesn't get too terribly hot during the Summer. :)

            Yeah I don't know if we'll do it or not. I definitely want him in a slimmer cut and trying to avoid the tan suit (which I initially loved!). So maybe a more subtle blue one.

              Here's what my FI will be wearing, with a green tie and the shirt sleeves rolled up mid arm.   He'll be sporting green Converse Chuck Taylors too.   The Groomsmen have the same grey pants, but they'll just be wearing the white shirts and no ties.  I think he looks so Dapper!!  I can't wait to marry him!

                My groom is wearing a tux, so is LO. Can't wait to see them in it!

                  Thanks ladies! I talked to FI last night and he wants to wear a tux. That's not something I'm going to fight him on! Thankfully we're just going to be on the coast here in Oregon so it doesn't get too hot :)

                  Thank you for all of your help!
