Definitely nothing wrong with it! Would he be up for a suit instead of a tux?? I think that your guy should be able to wear what he’s comfortable in and what makes him happy – it will look fine!

What about him and groomsmen wearing guayaberas….

they are more formal than hawaiian shirts, yet just as comfortable and cool

they also have long sleeve version, and all the colours of the rainbow…

my groomsmen are wearing them in long sleeve and lime green….and I have a “REAL” wedding dress…lol

i’ve been to plenty of weddings like that, i personally like the more casual wedding. i’ve even seen one with the groom in shorts!

Nothing says “special day” like shorts and guyabera shirts.     Wink

Seriously, if it’s important enough to you to wear a formal wedding dress, it should be important enough to both of you to see that he wears something appropriate.

I dont know, I think he should dress up more.  I really think it looks kind of funny when the groom doesn’t dress up much (like in that second picture artbee posted above).  It just looks to me like the groom is disrespectful or not deserving of his bride.  I mean, he should at least wear khakis and nice buttoned shirt if you are wearing a wedding dress.  But I really vote for him wearing a suit or a tux.  Would he consider alternative color tuxes?  Like khaki, light grey, or brown?  They don’t seem as dressed up as a formal black tux.

There is no such rule. The only rule you need to follow is that the formality should be similar on both sides. If the groom doesn’t want to wear a tux, then he is not required to.
