Hi Bees, ok so I am freaking out just a bit. The wedding is 2 months away and only FI and one of the groomsmen and my ring bearer have went to go get fitted. The other 4 guys (FI’s brothers) have not. Even after many many reminders. I really dont know what to do. They just dont get that we are running out of time. It’s not a money thing, all of his brothers are well off. I just dont understand what is stopping them. I mean the Best Man hast even gone, what is that all about??? UGH. My girls havent been any easier, but this is just frustrating and FI needs to talk to his brohers ASAP!
Has this ever happened to anyone? This tight of a deadline? I’m freaking out! Advice??

@MeadowsBee: Guys will be guys. 😛 Have you asked the place you’re getting the tuxes from what kind of timeline you should be on? Maybe they need some deadlines!

Call the shop and ask them when is the latest they can go in. Our shop is 2 weeks before the wedding.

Are they having custom tuxedos made from scratch? If not, they have plenty of time left. If you are renting, the policy will vary from shop to shop, but it should only take a few days notice. If you a buying off the rack, the tailor should be able to adjust it with a week’s notice.
I once phoned in my measurements and had a tuxedo delivered to my hotel 5 hours later. Ok, don’t tell them that – it’s better to give them a deadline – but don’t let this stress you out!

Oh, and just as an idea – my groomsmen and I are going out for a Saturday lunch, then fittings, then an action movie. That way they two who don’t know each other well can bond and I can be confident that everyone ordered the right thing.

@Professor6pack: Thank you for relieing some of my stress. I did take the advice of calling the tux shop to find out when the deadine was for them to get fitted and it is 2 weeks before the pick up date so that was a BIG relief. And the guys actually agreed (even made an appointment) on the 31st to all go get fitted together. And us girls are going to go get coffee and pedi’s 🙂 It all worked out and tone less thing to stress about.

FH and the other GMs aren’t going to get theirs til maybe 2 weeks beforehand, just in case of weight gain and such.
