    I went and helped him pick it. He didn’t care what he wore honestly and wanted me to like it.

    I think its pretty common to atleast make sure what he picks out matches the theme/colors of your wedding. We are going to Jamaica and before we decided what he was going to wear I asked what he wanted to wear and then I gave my imput on what I might like. He really didnt seem to care much about color/style, ect… You’ll probably find that most men don’t care as much about what they are wearing and might like some imput and direction. Knowing your theme/colors/location you could always ask him what his thoughts are on what he wants to wear and if he doesnt care or seems confused you could offer to go with him and offer some direction.

    I’m going with whatever he wants to wear, although I’m trying to convince him that a blue suit (the lovely almost royal blue kind) is the way to go!

    He’s actually the one stressing about coordinating as my bridesmaids will be in mismatched pastel colours and he isn’t sure what colour he is meant to match 🙂

    marbelles:  I think it’s important that your Fiance have a say in the “theme” or colors of your wedding and then go from there. My Fiance hates purple so I never would have chosen that as a color in our wedding and then told him he needed to coordinate with purple ties. We both decided on colors together (even when he totally nixed the mint palatte I’d been dreaming of for years, ) and then we talked about what suit colors would look nice with it. He didn’t want to go to get the suits at all, nevermind by himself, so I did go with him and gave my opinion on the options that would work with the colors we decided on. I told him what I liked and he ended up choosing that, but if he’d strongly preferred something else than he could have gotten it. I think grown men should pick out their own outfits or at least have a strong say in them! Some guys don’t care, but I have seen bees talk about how their FI’s want a suit/tux that they don’t like and the veto it, which I don’t think is fair at all.

    marbelles:  We picked his and the groomsmen’s out. We went together and decided on what we liked (which luckily was the same thing!).

    Well we both picked the colour but that was quite easy as blue is both our favourite colours so there wasn’t really a question in that. He had a look online and said what style he would want, he wanted a more formal suit because he wears a suit everyday and so I didn’t want to input into that. We debated whether or not I’d see him before the ceremonly but he wanted to match my bridesmaids so I went with him and picked out the ties that would match. However, when my aunt got married her husband wasn’t allowed to see the dress so she wasn’t allowed to see his suit. I don’t think theres a right or wrong, just personal preference.

    He wanted to get a custom made suit so I went with to the tailor to help pick out the fabric color including the tie. We also got ties for the groomsmen. It was hubby’s decision to get a custom suit that cost 10x more than my dress:)

    I voted other- I didnt go with him, not because it’s a secret, but because I dont really care what he wears. He doesnt need me to dress him

    I went with my mum and sister to decide on a dress, and he went with his dad and brother to choose a tux and groomsmen outfits. It never occurred to me that I should meddle in his decisions on what to wear, just as it would never occur to me to have him come along to choose a dress. He is an adult; let him choose.

    Yes. He went initially to look himself, but then he took me to confirm with the decisions. He had a say in the bridesmaid dresses, so it’s only fair I got a say in the groomsmens. I did see what he chose to wear, but I didn’t see him in it until the day of.

    I picked everything out for him. He wouldn’t have had a clue otherwise. We bought him a new, custom suit, dress shirt, shoes (only thing he picked out himself), and socks. He rented his vest and tie 🙂
