@jojomonster: What type of wedding are you having? This might help us come up with options.

@jojomonster: I have seen men in slacks, vest, tie and a button down and look nice. Its basically the tux without the jacket. It looks great for casual/beach weddings but it will not fly for a formal event. What type of wedding are you having?

maybe compromise on the suit without the jacket… looks really cool and hip.

or… if it’s a beach wedding, khakis and a nice shirt.


or something a little off kilter

My Fiance is wearing a casual-ish brown jacket, a red collared shirt with no tie, lighter brown dress pants to contrast the color to the jacket and his brown fedora. We’re having a fairly low-key casual wedding.

I actually have to agree with your fiance, I feel the same way! It’s just too stuffy for me to see a bunch of guys in suits so I hunted down pictures already like this! here you go:

It all depends on the style of the your wedding and the venue. If its outdoors then he really doesnt have to wear a suit, although there are many different types of suits and not all of them are stuffy

i have a geeky friend who went to a renaissance festival looking for what he would wear to his wedding. (unfortunately for him, he did find anything suitable at the festival and didn’t have enough time to keep looking- he’ll be wearing a regular tux instead). maybe your fiance would like something like that?

@jojomonster: i know its stilll suit-ish but what about swapping out for a white/ivory dinner jacket?  those aren’t business at all.
