@Ms Scrabble: I wouldn’t choose seersucker–you’re right, it’s VERY informal and the pictures might look strange.

Is there an option for him to take off the jacket for the reception? Perhabs sub in a vest if you’re still wanting a more formal look?

Although, by evening time it might be cooling down some anyway. There is no possibility for a ligher gray suit? I know you can find some really nice dark cotton suits. They would have the lightness of a casual suit, but the colour should formalize it.

I am having the exact same issue! My date is June 9, 2012. I wanted a dark grey tux but apparently they don’t exist. I went to Men’s Wearhouse and they said they were coming out with a dark charcoal linen suit, which I think will be perfect.  You should check that out!

Linen or silk will give you a more elegant look but still be more lightweight and breathable.

Natural linen does wrinkle horribly though so he will have to be careful to hang his jacket, not wear it in the car before the ceremony, and try to avoid sitting before pics are taken.

There are linen blends that are more wrinkle resistant.

Banana Republic has a nice looking charcoal linen suit.
