I think your dress would look great with a suit. I think a lot of it has to do with the wedding itself – casual, formal, the venue, etc. If your wedding is laid back then I think a suit would be more fitting.

My FI gets most of his suits from JCrew and Nordstrom. He’s always been really happy with both.

I am wearing a big tulle dress as well.  From the very beginning we always knew my fiance would buy a suit instead of wearing a tux.  We got his at Macy’s, pretty deeply discounted too!

Maybe this will put your mind at ease! My groom wore a JCrew suit and I think we looked great together!

Suit- rental tuxes often look bad and almost never fit well, IMO. For the money, a suit is a much better investment and will look nicer because it can be tailored to fit him perfectly.

I would go with tux, but it seems like you want him in a suit more – which is fine too! Go with a black suit, and black skinny tie to up the formal factor a bit. J Crew is a good source, but also check Macy’s and whatever other department stores might be near you. Look at Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, and Kenneth Cole.
