My Fiance won’t know what I’m wearing until the day of the wedding, so why should I know what he’s wearing? I’d love to be surprised too! My brother is standing up on my side, but will wear a suit, and he’s the only man in our small bridal party. So I was considering asking if FI’s mom and my mom would assist the men in choosing their suits. My mom and Future Mother-In-Law know our colors (and will have the BM’s dress swatches). I’ll obviously run it by Fiance first, but I’d love to know how many other bees didn’t participate in selecting their FI’s suit!

We picked everything out together–Suit, vest, tie, pocket square. His brother/best man also came with and we picked out his suit too so we can see how well his suit would go with the groomsmen’s.

I mean, you can do that if you want to. I don’t see anything wrong with it. But it does seem a bit strange. Most men’s suits look very similar and I’m guessing it’s not like he’s going to have full hair and jewelry to add to his overal look….so I guess I don’t really see there being much of a “surprise”. Will he look great? Sure. But unless he opts for a dumb and dumber esque suit, I don’t see much that will be surprise worthy.
Summary: do it if you want and it doesn’t cause too much extra work for your mom and Future Mother-In-Law but don’t be expecting a huge reveal/surprise.

My husband chose his own tux and accessories (socks, shoes, belt, shirt, bow tie, pocket square), and he chose his groomsmen’s attire as well. I saw it all before, but he also saw what I was wearing– actually, he chose my dress too! Lol

Fun! I knew what mine was wearing as he wanted help picking it out.

He picked it for himself and the groomsmen, but showed it to me. Not a surprise. That was not an option in your poll

My husband wore a basic black tailored suit with a black tie. I gave him cufflinks as a wedding present and that’s the only part of his attire that I knew about before our elopement. I trusted him to look appropriate for our wedding. We knew he didn’t need to wear a tux since we were just having a small and casual cermony. My wedding gown was very simple as well.

DH did not see my dress, and I did not see what he chose until the wedding. He and his father and brother went shopping for their suits together. I figured if I could choose my own clothing, he could, too. I dressed myself and chose the bridesmaids dresses; he dressed himself and chose the suits for the groomsmen.

My husband is not the best when it comes to fashion. If he had it his way he would’ve worn sweat pants and t-shirt for our wedding. So for his outfit I prettry much picked out everything. We okay, we picked it out. I narrowed down his options and he decided between them. Same goes for his groomsmen 🙂

He and I will pick a suit and shirt color in advance, and give our moms the BM’s dress swatch so they can help coordinate. I definitely won’t send them in without any guidance. I’m not nuts, lol! As long as my Fiance and my brother have the same fabric and color, they can have different suits. (And as long as our moms approve of how it looks, since I actually know they have good taste.)

I didn’t know, although I did know it was something rented from Men’s Warehouse because I came along with him and did some other shopping while he picked it. I wanted him to pick what he wanted and I have this rare genetic condition where I can’t keep my opinion to myself.
I liked what he picked better than what I would’ve picked so I’m glad I wasn’t there. I always thought suspenders and a bowtie were kind of juvenile but they actually looked pretty hot on him 🙂

Aw that’s cute 🙂 🙂 I know only because our wedding is very formal so he and the groomsmen will be wearing black tuxes. No real surprise there haha but there aren’t too many options for a black tie affair.

I’m picking everything for my SO. He has no real strong opinions when it comes to clothing, and if I left it up to him he would show up in a tuxedo tshirt.

I knew what he was wearing as he made/sewed his outfit himself so I saw him making it and when it was done 🙂
My husband also knew what I was wearing. I showed him the dress ahead of time as “surprising” him with it was not a concern of mine.
