Call him back and let him know that. It does come across a little harsh…even if you don’t care sometimes you just have to pretend…The way you rephrased yourself at the end sounds sooo much better! But I would probably be the same way if FH wanted to buy a tux too!!

My FI decided to buy his, too, and wanted me to decide for him which one to get. Thankfully, though, we went to the store, I picked, and that was that. I think it’s sweet that they care what we think about this.

@oracle: Oh, and about the cost thing….I CAN RELATE!!! My FI always wants the MOST expensive EVERYTHING, and I’m just like “can’t we save a little here pleeeease??”

So I feel that.

At least your FI cares what he’s wearing. I had to drag my FI to the store to buy a suit, and from the way he acted, it was a rather tramatic experience. He just hates shopping. I think it’s cute that he cares about the tux and what you think of it so much.

I feel your stress over the cost and look! At least your FI is willing to go look at tuxes on his own! I have to drag and force my FI and, of course, the suit he fell in love with is waaaaay out of budget and twice what my dress cost! Now he’s snippy and refuses to consider anything else! Sounds like you both need a breath. Maybe tell him to get someone to take a picture of him wearing the tux, think on that picture for a bit (but not so long the sale goes off!) and then decide if he thinks it looks good. If yes, tell him to buy it! If no, move on. Has he tried online? both amazon.com and overstock.com have some awesome tux deals! 🙂
