- Wedding: February 2018
This subject has been a really touchy one for us.
I originally wanted him to wear a barong, a traditional Filipino shirt, as I thought it would pay tribute to our Filipino heritage (we are both half). He immediately said no way, because his mom made him wear one when he was younger and it was uncomfortable. Boo.
So then I thought.. okay, tux. That was another hell no. He said he wanted to wear something comfortable, and to be honest, he didn’t even wear a tux to prom. He just wore the pants, vest, and a bow tie. Frick. So the tux was out.
I then moved onto suites. Him in a chocolate brown suit, the boys in tan suits. Again, I go a no.
He seriously wants to walk down the aisle in our beautiful church, and stand next to me in my gorgeous (not so comfy) dress, in a long sleeve shirt and slacks, with the boys wearing very similar things.
See, the thing is, we are from Hawaii. So usually, an aloha shirt to a wedding would be fine, but he rarely ever wears aloha shirts, and this is not a casual wedding! I really don’t know what to do! I’ve already given up my precious barongs, and now my tux! I don’t know what more to say to convince him that he needs to dress up for this!! When I do ask, he says I’m being selfish. He says that I am planning every other detail of this wedding, why can’t he just pick what he’s going to wear!
1) I plan, ask for his input and get an, “I don’t care.”
2) He can pick what he’s going to wear, but it needs to be tasteful to the occasion!
HELP! What should I do about my bratty clothes FI?
