Yep, that’s what you’ll get at men’s wearhouse.  Those of us into clothes don’t shop there.

Sounds fun.  My husband picked out his outfit down to the shoes.  Thankfully he has great taste so he looked amazing.  I wasn’t allowed to say anything about his attore or the attire for the groomsmen.

That’s cute!

My DH was “Gung-ho Guy” and I was the supportive fiancee. He was really into the suits for the guys. I was happy he was enthusiastic, but the whole experience was kind of a bore. Suits are suits to me 🙂

we went to a local tuxedo shop where DH had been renting tuxes for 10+ years.

we went in together, i knew the accent color i wanted.  DH picked the style suit he wanted. 

2 days before the wedding, i took my brother to pick up his tux, DH and bestman met us there also.  everything looked great on everyone.

Total control.  He wants it to be a surprise.  I did the same thing he did with me about my dress – told him what I pictured and now he gets to decide…

@Misswhowedding:  FI is 100% in control of what he and his guys wear and has picked out the style and is waiting on a quote so he will have his info when we have our bridal party meet&greet dinner next month. The only thing I said was these are our colors and thing gray is better because it can work with the girls the shades and fit are up to him. He is also very involved with the planning in general. The only thing he wouldn’t do or will complain doing is calling around so I do the leg work and tell him our options. Granted I am giving him things bit by bit…it makes no sense the both of us feeling overwhelmed and since his is paying for most of it and he worries about being able to get everything together and not “scrapping” at the last minute we focus on a few things at a time …makes life a whole lot easier lol.

My FI was almost a combination of disinterested and in it together. He would usually speak up if he didn’t like something but he never really cared too much about every little details either. So I made a lot of the choices. When they showed him a tie that was “paisely” he kept reffering to it as “parsley” ..He still tells people he looked at ties with parsley on them…

Maybe a little something like this? LOL.

He bought his suit when he went with his best man – I wasn’t there. Although, we had been looking together once before, so I did have a good idea of what he was planning to get.

He also bought his shoes on his own – from Payless! It’s just the kind of guy he is… They looked nice though.

My DH went himself. He bought a nice black suit. He wears suits 2x a week if not more so It wasnt something he needed me for.

I thought I had it all figured out as to what my husband was going to pick for his wedding clothes.  Imagine my surprise when I came to walk out down the aisle and I saw an amazing suit on him!  I literally was in awe and kept saying how handsome and amazing he looked. 😀

My FI actually knows exactly what he wants to wear.  He bought his tux months ago and is carefully going over options for shoes/tie/cufflinks etc.

My DH was a teensy bit of a Groomzilla!

He went in, hunted down a coordinator, described EXACTLY what he wanted (morning suit with vest and euro tie), then spent an HOUR picking the exact suit coat and accessories/shoes/etc!

The coordinator lady asked me if I approved once or twice, and he was like “Look, she gets her dress. The suits are mine!”

@Misswhowedding:  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and wish I was there to people watch with you, LOL!

I want him to wear possibly weird I know…(gasp!) a white tux to match my white dress, he said no, he wants a black tux, that the white tux will make him look too faded, at that point I decided to let him do exactly as he pleases for his look (within reason) so we’ll see what he comes up with.
