Awesome thread!

My fi is tall [6’3″], and somewhat big, he usually towers over everyone [and me!]

I am by no means a tiny girl myself (street size 16), but I’m usually comfortable in my own skin and felt beautiful on my wedding day.

 

Darling Husband is also a big guy and I kinda felt bad for him.  I thought he looked AMAZING on our wedding day, but the whole process of buying a suit, renting vests, etc…was almost painful for him because he had to order his differently than his groomsmen because of his size.  For the most part, the fashion industry is good about making women’s plus sizes and attempting to not make women feel bad about size (eg: many bridesmaid dresses can be ordered in sizes 0 to 30).  The same cannot be said for the guys though and that’s really too bad. Men are just as self-conscious about their weight – It’s just not as socially acceptable for them to talk about it. 

 

I’m on my phone right now so can’t post pictures, but trust me, my Darling Husband was a total cutie on our wedding day, despite a few extra pounds.

My Darling Husband has really broad shoulders (he’s told me it’s so that he can carry all of my problems too.  I will admit, they’re perfect for crying on!) and I wondered if he would be comfortable in a tux, but he said that Men’s Wearhouse does a great job and they’re not that bad at all.

@smiles4jo:  My Darling Husband completely agrees!  He says it’s hard being a bigger guy and trying to find things that are broad enough for his shoulders that don’t make him feel like he’s super overweight.  Finding clothes for him for Christmas was really hard!  I feel bad for him.  We’re going back to the gym again and he’s hoping to slim down, but the shoulders are the hardest part cause he’s a weight lifter and his muscles will get bigger, not smaller.

I love this post! My Fiance is stocky, too, and while there are plenty of good plus-size options for women out there, even in bridal magazines, bigger men seem to be completely unrepresented.

@Barika:  I love his reception outfit! I still have a few more months to try to get SO on board with wearing a vest. I can’t help it. I just love how guys look in them 🙂

@flying_hearts:  Thanks!  He really wanted a 3 peice suit……BUT the ones we found we are a slim fit that did’t work for him.  He loved the change and the vest made him stand out from all the other men in shirt and tie.

amazing post!

i’ve only seen my Fiance dressed up once, as an usher at his cousin’s wedding. it was so hard for him to get fitted- he is 6’1″ and is very husky with very broad shoulders. at the wedding, he ended up ripping the crotch of his pants, and then ended up popping a button off the jacket! poor guy! needless to say i’m a little worried about our wedding day lol.

I’ve never actually called my husband “husky”, but I’m pretty sure he fits the criteria.  🙂  He didn’t want to wear a jacket, as he gets hot easily..and we were married outside on a hot day.
