Menswear

I really want FI to wear a 3-piece suit for the wedding. Like this guy:

I think a suit would be a great investment, and it's a staple in a man's closet. Besides, my man is ready for a nice suit.

As for the groomsmen, I love this idea:

I like that it's different, and that it definitely could save our groomsmen some money. Unfortunately, we can't afford to pay for our wedding party's attire. With my inital idea for our color scheme, I drew what I had in mind:

And this is what I found:

I had to beg FI to model for me. Anyways, I found this vest along with the black tie at Jos A. Bank on sale! He didn't have a better white shirt on hand (we were at my parents), and he put on the tie kind of sloppy. It was a little big on FI, but I still thought it looked great. And he wouldn't have been wearing the vest anyway.

But then I fell in love with aqua and orange, and now I don't feel like it will work well with our aqua and orange colored wedding. I'm not writing it off completely, but I may decide to let these go.

If I do let these go, I think I'll opt to have our groomsmen wear suits also, in gray, while my guy is in black.

Jos A. Bank has pretty good sales once in a while. Right now, there's 50% off all remaining clearance valid 09/10/2008-09/14/2008.
