Yikes that sucks. Maybe you can actually see the vest and compare it to the colour swatch with your FI, that way maybe he will see that it doesn’t match.

I’m sure that no matter what, it won’t ruin your day.  Who cares what other people think!

What if they did white or grey suits with watermelon ties?  Grey and watermelon look good together.

Try not to stress too much–you have plenty of time!  We were changing the tux/vest orders the last 2 weeks before the wedding because the shop ordered the wrong colors.  And the last wedding FI was in, the tux shop gave one of the groomsmen the wrong color combination (some icky green and brown and black thing instead of black and red) and he had to exchange it the day of the wedding!  So take a deep breath– these things happen, and it’ll get resolved 🙂

Where are they getting their tuxes?.. maybe you can get on the site to see the actual color? I remember trying to take pics of shirts in mens wearhouse and the very purple shirt looked BLUE!

Also, our guys wore white tuxes but didn’t wear the vest and just went with ties to match their chucks… they all looked great!.. and believe me, after reading and seeing everything here on wedding be I lost sleep about worrying how’d they look with my girls but it all turned out well =)

Definitely drop the vest and just go with ties to match. That will help ALOT.

Is the tux place a chain? If it is, and there is one near you, maybe you can go in and double check, since it really can be the camera. I know with FIs tuxes the shop worker specifically asked for a swatch so they can match everything up. Or, maybe as a backup plan, buy however many watermelon colored ties you would need and make them swap out the vests for the ties day of the wedding if they truly don’t match.

He hung up on you over a tuxedo?  Is he 5?  I’d be so upset.  You guys need to be able to decide on this together.
