Internal Bridezilla Moment of the Evening:
So me and fiance were discussing what he would like to wear for the wedding i.e. suit or tux. And he let’s me know that while he isn’t sure yet, he for sure wants to wear a double breasted suit… I hate that style of jacket 🙁 Not saying anything to him becuase he needs to have at least something he picked on his own for the wedding but WHY??!. I’ve been trying to google and find ones I like but it even looks bad on Ryan Gossling… oh well, hopefully it will be hot and he won’t wear it much:)

He gets to choose his suit/tux, just like you got to choose your dress. I’m sure he will look handsome.

Oh no, double breasted, not good. Good for you for saying “oh, well” and letting him have his choice, but I hear you on the UGH moment you are having.

I would never get a dress I knew SO hated, so I would probably expect that he not get a suit he knew I hated. His attire is as much for you as it is for him, so I don’t buy the “his tux, his choice” argument. That being said, I think it’s nice that you’re willing to let him wear a style you don’t like. Does he know that you don’t like the double-breasted style?

Definitely talk to him about it. The groomsmen’s suits (like everything else in the wedding) should be agreed upon.

Hah, another bone of conention, he wants to wear the same colour but different suits from the groomsmen…
He doesn’t know I don’t like the style and I really don’t want to tell him because I want him to feel good and not think that I don’t like the way he looks.
I think I will just let it go as he has come a long way. When we first started planning I asked him what colours he would like for a wedding and he said green and yellow. Great I thought! Then I asked him which he would prefer for his tie and accessories, and he said Blue… Huh? He said that he didn’t want to match the wedding… Sigh…
I’m hoping that when we go to the store to look at the different suits he will realize that the double breasted look is so not semi-formal mountain wedding…

Just mention it nicely to him, say how this is how he is gonna look in the pictures for many years to come! My husband wore a mandarin suit, and it wasn’t something i was crazy about,but i didn’t hate it, but it is how he always saw himself getting married in, just as you see yourself in a gorgeous gown.

Appeal to his ego. Tell him how much hotter he’d look in single-breast suit.

Double breasted suits look good on thin guys… back in 1998. I’m sorry, love. I’d show him LOTS of pictures from magazines and catalogs with alternative looks to sort of—-ya know—-leap him into 2012.
