Ok, my man has had very little to say when it has come to planning and decisions with our wedding except for for thing his attire! He is determined to wear a black suit with a black shirt and whatever accent color I choose for the tie etc… sounds easy enough to honor however, we are having a very casual daytime affair and a tan, or gray suite would work best with the color scheme and theme too. Even just vest no jackets would work and look nice. He refuses to budge on what he is wearing! I would love some ideas how to make his choice work with our casual look and feel to the wedding.

I feel ya! Mine is insistent that he wear a black tux and I just don’t think it will match with our fall theme. I’m going to be wearing an ivory or darker dress and the maids will be wearing fall tones. All the decor is going to be browns, oranges and warm colors. I really want him to wear a cholocate brown suit or even tan suit. What’s with all this tux business? Try to get someone else to convince him of what you like… if it’s not coming from you then sometimes it helps 🙂 Good luck!!

I don’t really have helpful advice, but I do have a friend who wanted to do this at his wedding last year and wasn’t allowed to. And when I asked him about the wedding (I wasn’t close enough to the couple to expect an invite), that was one of the first things he talked about. He was happy to be married, but he remembered that the one thing he wanted to do got vetoed.
My point being that it’s his day too, so if there’s a way to make it happen, do what you can.

Thanks for the words of advise – and yes, I def want to obligues his ONE request but I am trying to make it work with our theme and style. It’s an earlier wedding in a garden. So it’s very low key and I need to make an all black grooms attire work with this. I am wearing an off white/champange colored lace dress. The wedding will incorparate babys breath bunches, bird cages, and a splash of peacock feathers. My coloros are eggplant, moss and a golden champange. I just need some ideas on how to make his and the groomsmen style work with the rest of the wedding.

Can you tell me what you ended up going with? I am now having the same problem. We have the same dress description and wedding colors 🙂
