I don’t know where to start this.
When we were thinking of our options for men’s suits we obviously discussed it with him. On one occassion I presented him with a a brochure and picture of what had caught our eye, he barely looked at it and went “Hmm”. Next thing him and my mum had been looking at some in a store and I was like “oh right” [we’re not buying brand new suits for everyone]. FI and I decided on those from the brochure so FI got measured up. The following week came my step-dad’s turn to get measured and he took objection to the assistant going at him with the tape measure, which I kinda understand, I should’ve said he’d like to try it on first. He then had a tantrum in the middle of the shop (where I bought my dress from – I ended up in tears), I was so embarrassed. He had the same suit but with a different jacket. I don’t think he fully understood how things work and I think perhaps he could wear what he wanted without realising he then wouldn’t be part of the main party. He did apologise for not communicating but I stressed it’s my big day and I’m going to be sensitive about how things go as he said I wasn’t the easiest person to approach!!??!! Now the suit’s arrived and the jacket is apparently a little big on the shoulders but he can’t have the next size down cos he’s got a belly. I felt last night on the phone him and my Mum weren’t telling me the full story but Mum’s told me this morning it could look better. How bad is it I wonder? I know it’s minor but because of the drama this has already created it’s the one thing I’m anxious about.
