- Wedding: May 2010
My FI and I only have 2 people each standing up for us. He has his brother and my cousin and I have my sister and my best friend. Well we got our tuxes at Mens Wear house. I was reading our reciept today and saw that that total cost is going to $145 to RENT a tux for 1 day. Ok I dont care who you are but how CRAZY is that???? I guess I knew this all along but never really thought about it. Anywho, heres another dilemma I have.
Im pretty sure my FI brother, his name is Kyle, is going to flake out of the wedding. Long story short, My FI family will not be coming to the wedding but says its okay for Kyle to be in it. (Kyle is 18 but has a slight case of Retardation. I am SO sorry if thats not the right word. I just know that, thats the condition he seems to have.) Kyle understands most things and is alright in high school but theres many very simple, simple things that he just cannot grasp. Well its terrible but I know my FI family is using his condition for their advantage and using against us and they are putting stuff into Kyles mind.(Which I think is Child abuse) For instance, Kyle will be busy the whole day of te wedding, well he calls my FI to ask him if he can bring a girl he likes to the wedding. I think this girl is about 14 years old. My FI tells Kyle, “Whos is she? You know she wont know anyone and niether will you, and you will be too busy to occupy her. Where will she sit at the reception? I’m sorry, Its just not that great of an idea”. This is something Kyles parents could of told him but they play on his condition and wont get him help or tested for anything.
Kyle sees my parents at church every sunday and always asks them questions about the wedding. His family has an invitation but he constantly asks my parents what time the wedding is. Well yesterday apparently he asked me mom again what time the wedding was because theres a concert he wants to go to that night. My mom told him that the reception will be that night and he will have to be there. Kyle didnt understand this and proceeded to say that “I’ve just got to figure out a way to fit everything in”.
I’m pretty sure that my FI family will put into Kyles head to pick either the wedding or the concert and they will play up the concert to stop him from going to the edding and Kyle will end up picking the concert.
So I have an extra groomsman I could use as a fill but he definelty cannot affort $145 tux. So is there anywhere that you can find a matching Menswearhouse tux???
I vent so much on here! Thanks for all the help ladies! I’m also here if you need any advice!
