FI and Best mand are in pain black suits orang gold copper ties and grey shirts..
everyone agreed this was the plan as we didnt want them putting otu a bunch of cash on a rental and FI needed a new suit anyways
there is only the groomsman the the best man standing… and the groomans best friend of the groom (best man is brother) wants to wear a pin striped suit.. now.
he went and bought one.
HIs gf whome is in my bridal party – which im seriously regretting
keeps saying “you can barely tell its pin striped.
the photographer- you will be able to tell in the close pics and if his suit and the other suits overlap in any way (i.e arms around shoulders)
to this his gf says- his grandma says it wont show up in pictures… – oh yes i forgot his grandma in her yellow lighted kitchens got a degree in photography. not,
i want to just shake them both!!! what happened to etiquette!?!?
dont outshine the bride and groom?
my hair btw is fairly simple. and she wanted something very intricate and unique which was very labeled as “best bridal hair ever”
and i have to suck it up “because i picked a simple hair do”
p.s. the wedding is saturday!

I would be just like this:
Oh lord…. Have you tried talking to them???? because for god’s sake this is YOUR wedding!!! and I’m sure you guys spoke about what everyone would be wearing long time ago.. I think is very childish and selfish what they are doing and you should tell them that… my god they are so perfect for eachother trying to be the center of the atention…

@samlan414: O M G… no… no… no..
In this case… BREATH… you cannot let them ruin your day, tell them that you are absolutely NOT happy with what they are doing so you can let go that feeling and then try to move on… focus in that it is your day, you are the bride and no matter what you’re going to look stunning and everybody is going to focus on you. I bet your dress is more beautiful than any silly BM dress and your FI will have eyes only for you. in the end of the day that’s all that matter.

@samlan414: I found out 6 days before the wedding that our best man (only person to stand with the groom) had yet to purchase a suit. All we asked of him (we gave him a year’s notice, BTW) was to wear a grey suit – didn’t even have to be a specific shade of grey, or the same a DH’s…
Well, he went to value village and bought a ”grey” suit (it’s actually a black suit).
I was very distraught at first, I mean how hard is it to get a grey suit? It’s the ONLY thing he was asked to do…
Well it wasn’t easy, but I let it go… I’d rather go with the flow than become a ”bridezilla” – even though it would have been totally justified for me to complain.
Here is how it turned out in the pics:
I’m actually really happy with my pictures (as long as I don’t think about the situation too long, as I am doing now, lol). They still look great despite the two guys not having the same attire.
Good luck hun, decide what is right for you! Remember, you are the one that has to live with the pictures/day forever, not them…

@samlan414: About the hair… I don’t think ANYONE or ANY HAIR can outshine a bride on her wedding day…
My sister had peach/pink hair as my MOH, lol.

I think you are just letting the stress get to you. If every guy is just wearing his own suit, who cares if one is pin stripe? Also, both those hair styles are very pretty and you will both look great.
It would take a lot more than a few faint lines on a suit and a hair style to ruin a wedding. So I think you need to just let it go, relax, and enjoy your wedding.

@O.My.Heart: i agree if there were just 2. that would be fine i would be fine. but soon to be DH and his brother(best man) are both in black plain suits. so he will be the odd one out.

@O.My.Heart: Your best man’s suit looks totally grey to me. If someone told me to go buy a grey suit I would probably come back with that too. The problem is there are so many different shades, and the darker one is more run of the mill for a suit.

I’d strike a compromise–he can wear it to the reception.

I love a man in a pinstripe suit, so I’d be thrilled.
