I’ve seen it at the reception when the guys take off their jackets.

I like jackets for the ceremony. The no-jacket look is very laid back, more fun, but also sort of un-put together. A jacket slung over the shoulder looks nice too!

Thats what we are doing! We are having suit pants (brown), baby blue shirts and tan vests they will be wearing ties as well. oh and they are wearing chuck taylors. We are having an outdoor wedding that is a real mash up of vintage and fun.  Our reception is being held inside an old converted barn so I like to refer to it as rustic chic with a little fun thrown in. I think it can definately work depending on what type of wedding you have.  I don’t have pics yet but when I get my groom’s ensemble put together i will post a pic.

I think this could look good, depending on what colors you are envisioning. It might look weird if they are wearing a black suit or dark suit. I think beige or some other lighter color would look very modern – especially if you do bouts pinned to the vest. I agree w/ ladybug31087. You need the right accessories to rock the look.

we actually went even a bit more (lol) casual with my husband wearing a gray vest and pants and the boys wearing whatever gray pants/white shirt/anything-else-they-could-think-of combo they wanted. i didn’t see any of the boys’ outfits before the wedding, and i loved how eclectic and happy it turned out. but then, i am a bit biased… hope the pics help!

@i_shall_be: Love the style

I think its fabulous and really an upcoming trend. IMO only a certain look can pull it off though. Here is how I see it:

love this idea.  it’s what we’re planning for our summer wedding.  it would look out of place, however, if you had a very formal ceremony/reception.

This is what we did for our outdoor summer wedding. It’s great for a casual look, especially since we used brighter colors, but I have to agree that it doesn’t work for a formal look.

well it depends on your wedding setting and the feel that you are wanting the wedding to have, I had my wedding outdoors and the groom and groomsmen wore dress pants and buttoned up dress shirts with the sleeves rolled up to right below the elbows and they wore flip flops. It all depends on what you want, I think the vests are really nice, be different your wedding should show you and your fiance’s personality:0)
