The Groom & His Men

18 May

When Trevor and I started to discuss what we wanted our wedding party to wear he immediately told me he really wanted the guys to wear suits.  We have seen it done before in other weddings where the groomsman will purchase suits instead of renting tuxes.

The cost to rent a tux can range from $150 – $250, and since a lot of companies offer “buy one, get one free” or other group rates on suits, the price to buy a suit can come out to be the same.  A guy can always use a new suit, so why not?

We decided we want the entire wedding party to be in gray and have yellow accents.  The girls with yellow flowers and the guys with yellow ties.

Not only did we need to be weary of the price, but we also wanted to make sure the suits represented the style of our wedding and were the right gray 🙂  This was obviously harder to find than we expected, but after many trips to Jos. A. Bank, Men’s Wearhouse and endless searches online, we finally found it!

A gray 3 piece suit from Men’s Wearhouse.  The price was at our max, but thanks to my cousin who always seems to “have a guy”, we are able to get a deal 🙂  The suit in this picture is about 2 sizes to0 big for Trevor, but you get the idea!  We are also planning to do a brighter yellow for the ties (which I’m still on the hunt for!).  We really like the shade of this gray and how well it goes with the bridesmaid dresses.

Check out our modeling skills 🙂  We also love that it’s a three piece suit, the vest  really spruces up the look and makes it feel dressier.  Our wedding party is almost dressed!  Now I just need to find the right tie…
