Now. He needs to go now if he’s going to order it. My brother’s suit took 2 months to come in, so it’s cutting it way too close to leave it any longer! Is he aware of the time it takes to come in?

Suits can take up to 4 months depending on buying/renting. Sounds like you may need to book appointments and attend with him. Some people just aren’t great at organizing stuff like this.

I wouldn’t at all. What’s he going to do if he doesn’t find one? It’s his issue. I’d take the pressure and stress off you and just leave it up to him. 

Fwiw, my husband had issues with his original suit and ended up getting a new one two days before the wedding. So it’s possible to get something last minute. Either way, don’t let it be your stress.

everythingpink : no worries he won’t have to go naked, he can always buy off the rack in an emergency. But if you need a certain color or style, get that dude to the tailor pronto.

I would go pick it out myself at this point.

On one hand, yes this is his attire and he should be handling it…but on the other hand, time is of the essence! I’d start making appointments for him.

Never. It’s his outfit. Let him deal with it. It never even crossed my mind to ask my then-fiance if he had his wedding-day outfit ready. He’s a big boy; trust him to figure it out.

Put him in the car and drive him to the suit place.

My Fiance put it off a little bit too long for my liking, as well. Worst case scenario, you can get suits from Men’s Warehouse pretty quickly. But I’d let him know that he is stressing you out because he hasn’t done it and if he wants to have a sane Fiance, he should get on it now.

Agree with PP that he’s a big boy and it’s his responsibility to pick out his outfit and look appropriate at his wedding. Unless you think he’s going to show up in jeans, I think you can safely assume he will pull himself together in time for his wedding. If you are concerned he won’t dress up for his own wedding, take his measurements and order a suit for him yourself.

My husband put off buying the suit longer than I wanted (though not as long as your fiance). I eventually just told him “Hey, I know that you are cool with how long you’re waiting on picking the suits and logically I do know you have more time but this is really stressing me out can we please just do it this weekend?” And he did it that weekend. I would hope that if you communicate how stressed out this is making you he would care enough to get it taken care of.
