I definitely am. Sometimes you can’t trust boys. :p

My husband really wanted me to come and help him.  Actually, it was only fair since I brought him to see my wedding gown before I purchased it (I wanted to make sure he loved it too).  Fortunately, we were happy with each others’ choices.

My FH, bless his heart, told me that when it comes to the tux, he really just wants to look the way I want him too. He practically begged me to come with him and help. I think it is totally acceptable!

Yes!!! We went together and believe it or not he made most of the decisions. Granted the red we are using in our wedding is pretty much red there’s no way around the color, it has to match. As for the shirt and jacket and all, he picked and I nodded and it was great. I actually wound up hardly caring about what he wanted. He did ask though and he has pretty good taste so it was really a nice time.

I went to see what kinds of things he liked, but I tried to stay out of the decision making.  I wanted to steer him if I thought he was picking something tha twas awful, but otherwise I wanted him to pick it out himself.

I think you can if you want to. I went with my husband, but he did the choosing.  He thought it would be good to have my opinions, but he’s a super stylish guy, so he chose the ensemble.

My Fiance asked me to come with him…and good thing.  I originally wanted navy under the tux.  Saw that it looked terrible (to us) so we went with ivory for the guys and black for my man.  The woman needed to know if my dress was ivory or white, and if it had a pattern that might clash with the pattern on the vests/cummerbund.  ITs totally acceptable unless you REALLY trust him

Mind would have come home with powder blue and been so proud  Wink

No you don’t really have to. I went with my Fiance because he had noone else to go with. The other guys were either out of town or couldn’t make it that day so he asked me to go with him. It was kind of cool though to help him pick what he wanted to wear.

I’m going.. just to make sure he doesn’t make any crazy decisions. Also, sometimes they ask questions like kellyv said. But overall I plan on not saying anything unless he heads in an awful direction.

I did. He thinks all tuxes look the same and he needed to know he looked good =]. But ultimately, i picked out the shadow stripe suit and he put together the color combos!

You don’t have to.  I went with my fiance. 

But I also went with my friend’s husband to pick his out when they got married 4 years ago.  The 3 of us were good friends in high school, then after college they started dating and got married. I was the maid of honor, and she had to go out of town, so I went with him.  I am not sure why though, I guess so I could make sure it went with the bridesmaids dresses.  She didn’t care that much.

Some brides go & some don’t. At first, my hubby told me I couldn’t go, since he hadn’t seen my dress. And then he decided he wanted me to come. We went two different times, and I’m glad I went because I was able to discuss some of the more reasonable logistics of things (LIke when the lady working there said “you absolutely can’t do xyz” and I knew my husband really wanted to, I told him he didn’t have to listen to her!). Plus, my dress was a light champagne color. At first hubby was going to go with ivory vests, but then the lady told him he had to wear an ivory shirt, which he hated. I suggested champagne vests, and that’s when it all really came together!
