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.

 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…Embarassed 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.
