At first he was insistent that he would pick out their outfits themselves, but he confessed to me this weekend that he might like some help after all. He was very sheepish about it. It was so cute.

Nope, he picked it out by himself.  I had actually suggested he buy a new suit, but he was pretty set on getting a tux.  I think he wants to feel like Bond on our wedding day  ๐Ÿ™‚

i helped! he doesn’t really have much of an opinion on formalwear so he didn’t mind =). we originally were going to have all the guys wear suits at the wedding so we were hunting for nice suits and ended up getting a j.crew suit for a STEAL (about 40% off when all was said and done). then our moms wanted all the guys to wear tuxes so it’d feel more formal…oh well, a small detail to concede i guess. i helped narrow down the styles and Fiance chose the tux — he will just wear the suit to our 2nd reception and all the other weddings we’ll be attending in the future =)!

My Fiance insisted on picking out his tux without my input (since he "didnt get a say in my dress").  But once he realized that he would need to distribute the information to all 10 of his groomsmen himself, I was invited to join.

We went together, he asked me and then sort of acted like he picked it out himself.

I am ok with that, because he picked just what I wanted!

I gave my input but left the final decision up to him.  He ended up going with what I suggested though. 

I do feel bad that it’s all so one sided and offered that he could have some input on my dress but he hasn’t come up with much yet.  I actually kind of wish I could take him dress shopping with me but he insists that he not see me in the dress until I’m coming down the aisle.  Oh well.

I was going to help, but Fiance just informed me that he thinks that I shouldn’t be allowed to see what he picks until the big day, since i’m not letting him see my dress. Although I do have a feeling he will ask me for help eventually ๐Ÿ™‚

My Darling Husband wanted my help. If I had sent him alone, he wouldn’t have known what to do. He has great taste, don’t get me wrong, but little experience in wedding planning.

My Fiance does not shop for clothes. Ever!  We haven’t picked anything yet…but I envision strongly helping him.  But he will ultimately probably choose.  I want him to feel comfortable and that he looks his best!

He’s planning on picking stuff out, but making sure I’m okay with it. And since he works at American Eagle (yay discounts for meee!) he has a pretty good idea of what looks good.

But I might put in my say for the Argyle Key tie from cybertix, in sky blue…it’s so cool looking!

My Fiance is not a clothes person by any means.  I’m pretty sure just about every item of clothing he owns was purchased by someone else, save for some shoes and sports team stuff.  However, he tells me that for the wedding, he wants to wear a royal blue tuxedo.  Whaaaaaa?  When he first told me, I threw a mini bridezilla fit.  Then I realized that either a) he’s just messing with me or b) he REALLY wants to wear a royal blue tuxedo for some crazy reason, so why not let him? 

I’m still hoping he’s just messing with me…

If I didn’t dress him he’d probably come to the wedding in ratty shorts and a even rattier tshirt. He’s fine with me telling him what to wear because he knows I won’t make him look silly! ๐Ÿ™‚

I should probably add that we’re not doing suits or tuxes. He’ll be wearing a polo shirt and a pair of khakis. I’d feel bad making him wear a suit when I’m pushing the INFORMAL/Semiformal dress code on people that ask.

I went with the bridesmaid dress swatch in hand. We both liked the basic tux, and then he left it to me and the salesperson to agree on the colors. Easy as pie. I actually thought he would be annoyed with my input. Turned out he didn’t care too much.

I insisted on flat front tuxedo pants.  Other than that, I helped with color combos and let him choose the texture, tie v. bow-tie, etc.
