- Wedding: October 2010
OK, so it’s not really an argument, but more of a heated “debate.” lol
So we’re getting married barefoot on the beach in a small, casual ceremony in Cabo San Lucas. My dress is a flowy, Ivory chiffon.
My fiance initially asked for my help picking out his linen shirt for the cermony. He sent me a bunch of links/pics, and I liked the shirt below, which comes in ivory and can be fully customized with any color embroidery and sleeve style. He said that was “too much work” and he worried about ordering a custom, non-returnable shirt online. OK, Understood (he’s a big, mucsle-y guy).
Today, he headed out on a mission to get his wedding attire, and came home with tan linen pants (cool), nice loafers and a white, basic Tommy Bahama linen shirt. I wasn’t impressed.
I felt like the bitch of the century b/c he was really excited, and I kind of felt “meh” about it. He doesn’t think that the groom needs an ivory shirt, just because my dress is ivory (total side note: he is aiming to be more “average” as to ensure I am the center of attention … what?!)
I couldn’t disagree more … even tho we’re getting married on the beach, I want his shirt to be special, too, and have a bit of a tropical feel. But on the other hand, he’s really happy with what he bought, and I was a total wet blanket.
Bees, please offer your opinion both in the poll and in comments below. Thanks!!
This is the shirt I chose from his initial options:
This is a shirt very similar to what he purchased:
