Suiting the Gazelle Men

The Gazelle men have their suits!  We tossed around a ton of different ideas – purchasing here in Calgary, ordering custom suits over the internet and renting.

First up we went shopping with Groomsman M.  Finding a suit for him was relatively easy and he scored an awesome three piece suit from Le Chateau.DSCN4935DSCN4936Doesn’t that suit look awesome on him?  He tried the suit on with the tie we bought for him and a white shirt.  Love the ensemble!

Finding a suit for Best Man D was a lot trickier.  We were actually hoping to rent him a suit but we hit a total brick wall.  We wanted to rent a suit from Black & Lee since they have stores in Calgary and Vancouver.  We thought we could get measured here and pick up a suit in Vancouver.  Good plan in theory but unfortunately they only rent black suits!  Moores was another option but they only rent tuxes.  After the guys got frustrated with the lack of options Best Man D decided to buy a grey suit from Moores.DSCN5026DSCN5029D walked in, the salesman eyed him up and pulled this one off the rack.  It was perfect.  Here’s a shot of Mr. G and his best man.DSCN5030

The guys will be wearing their suits with an awesome boutonniere we got from etsy seller Pomp & Plumage.  The bout on the left is for Mr. Gazelle then we’ll see who gets gets which bout!IMGP2850editDid you hit a brick wall while trying to dress the men in your wedding party?

Ohh...very snazzy.

I avoided the brick wall - I just picked out simple tuxes. No thinking required there!

Well, unlike most bridesmaid dresses hopefully these guys can wear their suits again :-). We just rented simple tuxes, too(even for the ring bearer, who was just too cute).

We just asked the guys to wear a black suit. They could buy one, they could rent one- as long as it was a black suit, we were happy. My mother in law was a little concerned that the "different blacks" would look weird together- but they all looked the same and all was well :)
