ctbxbee :  What he is describing is a dinner jacket. The colors are all neutrals. How can they not go together?

ctbxbee :  I missed that detail, but I still think you are fretting over nothing. Men have worn ivory dinner jackets with black lapels for decades before the word “hipster” was even a thing.

I personally don’t like that look. Could you still let him choose, but a different option?

Ugh that is terrible. He isn’t giving input on her dress, why should he not get to wear what he wants? And how is it letting him choose if you TELL him what to choose?! 

OP – just let him wear it. I think it looks great, he wants to stand out from his guys a bit. You aren’t wearing the same dress as your BMs, I don’t see why he can’t feel a little extra special himself.

ctbxbee :  Did he have a say in what you are wearing? I think you should let this one go.

I’m biased in favor of bold menswear, so I love this idea way more than the usual (imo funereal looking) dark suit for a groom. I guess you’ve seen the photos of real guys in the Black Tux version, but it seems like that’d be helpful. To me it doesn’t read any more hipster or less formal than the all-white version – maybe more formal if anything. Here’s one at the Met Gala:

I’m annoyed because he picked tuxes, which I gave up my desire for short BM dresses for. And now, last minute my whole wedding vision is being changed on me.

You know you aren’t marrying yourself right? It sounds like you’ve steamrolled him and are trying to do that with his own attire even.

I understand where you’re coming from. To me it is a more casual look.  How about telling him that you’re worried it doesn’t look formal enough for the ceremony, and suggesting he wear a black jacket for the ceremony and then changing to the one that he likes for the reception?
