    I don’t know ๐Ÿ™  There’s only Fiance and his best man… they just went out and got outfits.  I have no idea what they are and I won’t until the wedding day.  Eep!

    @laekna:  jealous! My Fiance was born and raised in Glasgow and I can not get him to agree to a kilt!!!!!!!! Neither of his brothers did either, but I’m still a bit sad. 

    Fiance and the Groomsmen will be in suits. fI’s choice. Tuxes are too formal for our style.

    Suits! We actually got a super super good sale at Kohls, so the groomsmen were able to purchase their suits for only $100 ๐Ÿ™‚ For us it was cost effective and the groomsmen can wear them again! Suits fit us and our wedding style.

    Some guys like the idea of getting all dressed up for their wedding the same way some women do. Most guys don’t get that many chances to wear a tux in everyday life. I wouldn’t begrudge him the opportunity.

    If you don’t like satin lapels, they are available with grosgrain, or even plain wool. My Fiance owns the tux he’ll be wearing and the lapels are grosgrain. It’s pretty understated.

    There is a pretty funny thread on the Bee right now entitled something like “Don’t Wear A Tux In The Daytime.” Check it out for a giggle.

    My fiance and the groomsmen are in suits – it’s what they wanted to wear, but if he had wanted to wear a tux, then that would be fine too. A little strange, because it’s a fairly casual wedding, but I get to wear whatever I want, so he should too!


    @laekna:  My dad’s wearing a kilt! So is my uncle and a few other family members.

    I voted suit. FH’s going to be wearing a grey suit, but he’ll also have a nice vest too because you never know what the weather going to be like in March in Alabama.

    I actually wanted him to wear a suit, but he insisted on tuxes for him and his guys. Seeing as that was one of the few things he felt strongly about, I was ok with it.

    They def. all don’t have shiny lapels. Try going to some stores and just looking at some of the different examples they have.

    @lovelove1028:  The shiny lapel is actually what qualifies it as a tux! And you typically see the satin strip down the pant legs. I personally LOVE the look of a satin lapel, especially if it’s just the outside: ( http://0.tqn.com/d/mensfashion/1/0/N/G/1/Gary_Oldman.jpg ), but it’s not for everyone! No shame in just wearing a black suit!

    I told my Fiance I didn’t care what he was wearing.  He chose to wear a tux.  We gave the same option to every guy in our wedding party, and everyone chose a tux.  I guess it’s fitting since we’re having a late evening wedding, but really, I just didn’t care.

    I would say it really depends on the feeling of the wedding – outdoors, daylight, more casual feel all go towards suit. Evening, inside venue, if you’re trying to get a classier feel go towards tux.

    A fun alternative: suits with bow ties! I really wanted my Darling Husband to do this – http://cdn.greenweddingshoes.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/fun_bowties_wedding_groom_05.jpg

    Another alternative: groom in tux, groomsmen in suits so that the groom stands out.
