My fiancé hasn't figured out where to get his clothes for the wedding. Did your from rent or buy and from where? He's concerned about the costs for the groomsmen if they all have to buy everything.

Good question! Mine has not bought his yet. But we went to Jos A Banks and tried on some. I think the total for a slim cut 2 piece suit similar to an Italian cut, was like $284. We are not having a traditional wedding party but if we were I would start calling local mens attire suiting stores to see what their policies are for renting for destination weddings. I know a lot of men do not wear a suit on the beach and I'm not even sure where your ceremony is going to be held but, I LOVE the photos of men in a suit and a bride on the beach in a veil etc. Good luck! Let's us know what you find out!

Since you're in the US, Men's Warehouse does a "destination wedding" suit that you can travel with. When I checked on it last summer, I think the rental is about $200 (don't remember the exact dollars) but then if you're going for a week, it's half again of the cost to keep it for a week. So many US weddings are only a weekend so I would look into the rate for a Friday to Monday deal. If you compare that with buying, you could offer an either or to the bridal party. The alternative is a shirt and pants only in which case there is Tommy Bahama and Island Weddings that do really nice shirts. I know there are brides here that have found things at Macys. My husband when we got married wore light coloured pants from Kohl's that he really liked. They were very lightweight and the perfect colour, then he did his shirt from Tommy Bahama.

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

My fiance is not doing a full suit. Just the pants and vest. We got those two pieces at H&M and it cost....wait for it...$25 for BOTH the suit pants and the vest! They were having some crazy sale! I did not plan on spending that little. We just lucked out that what we wanted was seriously discounted. Personally, I wouldn't rent. You can get a nice suit that can be worn again for the same prices as renting.

My fiancé got his from Nordstrom. It was $700 so of course we didn't get groomsmen attire there. We went to Jos. A. Bank and they always have great sales and promos.

Well my fiance wants a Hugo Boss suit. We really shopped around at cheaper places but he just loves the fit at Hugo Boss and I have to agree with him there :wub: . After spending so much money on a dress I will never wear again, I really couldn't say no to a suit that he will wear again. 


As for the groomsmen, we also don't want to make them spend a lot of money so we're thinking express dress pants in light grey, white shirts and either bow ties or regular ties. Express usually has sales where you get one pair and the other one 50% off so we're thinking of having all the boys go together so they all save some money. They also have a really nice fit and they're easy to dress up or down. They're very versatile so I'm sure the guys will wear them again after the wedding :)

Thanks ladies! I think we're going to give Jos A Banks a shot for pants since they always have crazy deals, and check out Macy's or another store for shirts.

@nadiakat17 we did the Perry Ellis Linen suit on sale as well! FI got the whole suit (pants, jacket, and vest) and the groomsmen got just the pants and vest. Good quality!
Before he found the Perry Ellis, he was eyeing Studiosuits.com for himself. They will make you a custom suit based on your measurements and there are SO MANY COLORS and fabrics to choose from. He is still thinking of ordering some pieces for the rehearsal dinner.
