    Yes – because even though it was casual, he had no idea where to start.  I ran some ideas by him, he shot down the ones he hated (jeans and a sport jacket, for instance, which would have looked adorable.  Oh well) and we narrowed it down from there.  He doesn’t like khakis either, which is why I had suggested jeans, but he wanted to be a little dressier.  Now he can wear them to any other event the poor soul has to dress up for, at least.  I also came shopping with him so he’d have someone to show the clothes to and we could decide if they looked good or not.  No family/friends live near us, so there wasn’t a better option anyway!

    smoocheepoo:  haha exactly! Our color scheme is mostly blues, brass, and neutral, but with some ballet blush pink thrown in. I was sure to begin my explanation of this concept with the pink listed first. He almost died, but then I reassured him. Not too much, and he doesn’t have to wear it. lolz

    marbelles:  I want it to be a surprise. We’ve discussed him having a tuxedo (just like we did with me wearing a dress) but how it will actually look, etc. is a complete mystery to me and I love that! I think he does too. I trust his ‘stylistic vision’ of what he wants to look like on his wedding day so I’m going to let him go with that and be surprised when I see him!

    Unfortuantely, when it came to the wedding Fiance was a procrastinator. Not only his own tux, but the fathers and the groomsmen tuxes all had to be arranged. I gave Fiance 2 jobs, 1 was the tuxes, and 2 was the DJ playlist. But alas, in the end I ended up doing the tuxes myself. 

    To his credit, he is totally nailing the playlist.

    I’m helping my Fiance with his tux. I would have liked him to come and help me with my dress, but he’s excited that it’ll be a surprise 🙂

    I think the plan is that we’re going to go and he’s going to try some on and then he’s going to go with his dad too. I think I’m going to that one too haha
