I don’t want to be. Yesterday, fiance happened by a menswear store. He saw a suit in the window, on sale for a REALLY great price. He called to tell me about it, and I told him to hold off on buying it so I could see the color. It is light gray. Well, he bought it without letting me know until after. I don’t even know what it looks like. We talked about the men having gray suits, but we had talked more like a charcoal color. Since the suit was on sale, and there was only one other one, now I don’t know what the other men will be wearing. I am happy he found something he liked, but kind of bummed that he didn’t hold off on purchase even though I nicely asked him to. Am I being unreasonable? I don’t want to be. He wanted to “surprise” me. We are being married next fall, and I am wondering if this suit is a clearance from their spring/summer line. I just hope we can find complimentary suits for the other two men. And I really hope it will match my fall color scheme.

It’s annoying that he bought the suit after you asked him not to, but he was coming from a good place. I wouldn’t stress too much about everyone coordinating, it’s pretty easy to do with suits. Just be happy that your guy found a suit he loves as much as you love your dress!

i think it will be fine 🙂 just think of it this way, did you consult him before purchasing your wedding dress? maybe he wants to surprise you on the day like you will be surprising him 🙂

It’s gonna be okay, your Fiance had his best intentions with the purchase so you should be happy that he is doing his part! He should get the suit he wants for the wedding and to be honest, would you like your Fiance butting in with your wedding dress? 🙂
You’re not getting married until next year so you’ll get this thing sorted out before you know it! Good luck!

Thanks everyone for the replies. I wasn’t feeling well yesterday when he told me, so my reaction was that of irritability. Oh, and can you believe his alterations are only costing him $5?! Men have it so easy!

I think you two should be happy that he found a great deal! Suits are priceyyyyy, and $5 alterations is a total steal! I wouldn’t stress about finding an exact match for the groomsmen. I have seen TONS of pictures on wedding blogs of wedding parties where the groom wheres one shade of gray (either dark or light), and the groomsmen wear another shade (dark/light). It always looks fantastic, and I promise you that they blend together, especially if they wear the same color shoes and shirt and the same style of tie. They can also all wear matching boutonnieres. Don’t stress, and be happy he was looking out for a suit – a lot of bees have posted here that their FIs don’t take any interest in wedding details.
