Alright ladies I need your help. We are finally to the stage of picking out what my man will wear on our big day and we are comming to some road blocks…
He doesn’t want to wear his dress blues, that’s fine, a little sad, but fine. He doesn’t want to wear a tux, which is okay because our wedding is mostly casual. He doesn’t want to wear a suit or anything involving a Tie, bow tie, or suspenders…. He also doesn’t want to wear brown or black…
In my mind that leaves a grey vest? Are there other options? I showed him this picture, which I thought met all of his requirements and he hated it 🙁
Photo cards on nice paper
Help me bees there have to be other options!

I really wanted FI in a grey suit, but he wasn’t having it. I think a grey vest would look really nice.
I did think brown looked nice too, until the lady at the tux place said that guys who where them look like Jello pudding pops. I still think they look nice but I can’t get that mental image out of my head now when I see them. 🙁

Um, picky much? Haha, my FH is having a hard time choosing also.
Maybe khaki? Like this minus the tie?

Ooh I like the khaki.
FI IS stuck on wearing a grey suit since he saw a guy wearing one in the photog’s portfolio…
did your man say why no to the vest?

What about a linen suit? It’s not nearly as hot, so he’d be way more comfortable.
These look really nice: http://www.theknot.com/contests/my-real-wedding/photo/150370/our-wedding-michelle-james

Why don’t you suggest that the two of you go try some things at a store and see what he likes best?
Oh and a friend of mine that had a similar issue did that, but wore a white dress she had, so he could “visualize” the combination of the two of them together…he ended up going with the black!
I mean, there is always white too..not my personal favorite but maybe he will like it!

@Snow00774: I think he said no becuase the vest looked ‘to modern’ there are easily ways to make a vest look rustic so I am not worried about that, I think he is just going to have to try one on and see.
@sunangel08: Good idea, we are flying to the city in a few weeks and we just might have to go clothes shopping for him.
@atalante: That pudding pop imagre might be stuck in my head now. Good think I have never been a fan of brown suits.
