    Yes and no. I picked out the ties for the groomsmen because they matched the bridesmaids, and I picked out his tie to match my dress. We talked about the colour scheme for his tux and the guys tuxes. So I had a general idea of what he was going to look like…but I didn’t see his outfit until I walked down the asile.

    I made pretty much all the decisions for the guys, including my husband.  My husband simply didn’t care.  I had a certain shade of gray I wanted for him and another shade of gray for the other guys.  It worked out, and he was glad he didn’t have to make that decision!

    Darling Husband knows way more about menswear than I do, so I let him pick his wedding clothes. We actually ended up matching without planning it. He wanted to keep tradition by not seeing my wedding dress till the day, but we didn’t have any preference the other way around.

    Yes. We talked about what we both liked/disliked together, and what he felt most comfortable in, and will be going to pick everything out (probably right down to belt and socks) together too. He does not dress up for work or regularly at all, so I usually end up shopping for/picking out most of his formal outfits anyway.

    My faincé has told me that the only things he cares about for are wedding are that:

    1. He and I get married

    2. I get the day of my dreams

    3. There is delicious food and an open bar

    4. Not too much pink

    Everything else is up to me. Which I love! haha! So for his attire I simply showed him pics, asked his thoughts, he said great job! and that was it! Now we are on the hunt for the perfect fitting tux, but the “look” we are going for is pretty much set

    cantwaittobeemarried:  Love#4. That was FIs request as well. Our colors are pink and grey and he told me that as long as neither him nor any groomsman/ring bearer are in pink or wearing flowers, we’re good.

    I voted yes even though we haven’t picked it out yet lol but we will be picking it out together. We’re getting married in early summer and, as my Fiance really feels the heat (he always claims it’s hot when it’s actually quite cool!), I mentioned that he may get too hot in a full suit so did he have any other ideas of what he wanted to wear. He had a think (and a browse on Pinterest lol) and is tossing up between suspenders and a vest (to be worn with slacks and a shirt). At the moment, he’s leaning more towards him in a vest and the groomsmen in suspenders. I don’t really mind what he decides to wear – I know he’ll look handsome no matter what – but he’s asked for my help in coordinating the whole look (as in colours, mostly) so I’m more than happy to help!

    Every aspect of the wedding has been decided by both of us. It’s been great. He had the final say about what the men were wearing but we both talked about it was agreed upon it. All the men are wearing black suits, he’s wearing white vest and tie the men are wearing silver vest and ties. The girls are wearing: Maid/Matron of Honor: Guava and BMs wearing Purple. We all will be wearing silver shoes

    Yes, because we both love shopping together, and he also wanted to get my opinion.  We went to a few shops before he found a couple of suits that he liked, and together we narrowed it down to one.  Had he wanted to go shopping on his own, I would have been good with that too.  I trust his sense of style 🙂  Although I did pick out his tie – wanted to make sure it went with the overall color scheme.

    is there a hell yes?

    My fiancee ordered his suit about a year before the wedding… When he told me, I put aside the fact that that is ridiculously early to order a custom made suit and asked him what he had decided on.

    As he went on my heart fell and fell.  From the lapel, to the pockets, to the number of buttons… ever decision was wrong.  And I know that sounds like I’m a bridezilla, but I assure you by wrong I just mean.. he made every possible choice that would (a) NOT flatter his figure and (b) did NOT reflect his personality (lots of flashy choices like slanted flap-less pockets).

    I let him know my concerns as gently as possible, and he pretty quickly agreed–perhaps only because in general he has no fashion sense so he puts a lot of weight on my input.  He emailed the company to ask them to cancel the order, and then forgot about it.  They never answered his email and went ahead and made the suit.

    It arrived, and I told him he might as well try it on at this point.  He did and absolutely hated how it looked on him (to my relief, because I hated it too).  The fit was ok, but that’s pretty much all you could say about it.  My broad shouldered and fit fiancee looked like a chlubby middle-aged european pimp. All he needed was some gold chains.

    So he returned it, we got our money back, and next time when he goes shopping he’ll ask for my input before he puts in the order…

    marbelles:  I knew the suit colour (charcoal) and tie colour but that’s it. He went on his own to buy the suit and wanted me to be surprised.

    My Fiance wanted me to help him pick out and design his look because he doesn’t dress up very often and doesn’t have much fashion sense. So he didn’t really know what to get and wanted my input haha And I wanted to go with him anyways so I could make sure he was picking an appropriate style. It worked out because I got to help him and at the end of it, we both liked what we picked together 🙂
