Picking Grooms And Groomsmen Attire

Recommended Posts

Hey all DW Brides....looking for tips on how to pick out grooms and groomsmen attire for our 2015 beach wedding. My groom and his groomsmen ALL live in different places....nowhere close to one another. I love the idea of a blue suit or just a vest and shirt but have no idea where to start to have them all get the same thing? You would think it would be easier for the groomsmen but I have the same situation with my bridesmaids and I think it will be easier for them! Thanks for any help!

Not sure where you're located. In the US there is always Men's Warehouse. They have locations all over so at least all of your "men" could go wherever they live and get measured and get whatever they're supposed to be getting. There is also Tommy Bahama online. They have a wedding section devoted to destination weddings. Each person could order whatever they need to. They have a deal on lately for free shipping too. There is also a place called islandimporters.com  They also have a wedding department. Someone else mentioned I think Macy's as well.

 

If you're in Canada there are also quite a few places depending on what you want. Tommy Bahama also ships to Canada if you find something you like. Some people have used J. Crew and Le Chateau.

 

Hope that helps a little  but it will all come down to what you're looking for and your specific tastes.

 

Good luck and happy planning!

We are buying the groom/ groom's men suits here ( we've gotten their measurments)and shipping them to the grooms men in advance, that way they can get all their alterations done before the big day!

Has anyone thought of having groomsmen in shorts?

I think that could be cute! I know my resort has a dress code for the ceremony though

I've definitely thought about shorts! We live in Bermuda so Bermuda shirts are the normal business and dress attire here....as long as they do t wear the tall socks with them I think it would look good!

@@LiannaBanana  Are your BM dresses on the more casual side?  If so, then I think shorts would work.  Yet if the dresses are more on the dressier side, then it may look a bit off for pics and also when the BM's and GM's are standing or walking together.

 

Are your GM wearing flip flops as well ?

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
