I didn’t… I kind of want how he looks to be a surprise for me just like how I look will be a surprise for him.  Well… as surprising as a black tux can be, anyway 😛

I have never met any bride who did this, and the grooms looked just fine. It depends on the couple. Does your fiance want you to go with him to pick out tuxes for everyone?

The only time the bride goes is if she has a very specific look in mind and doesn’t feel that the groom will go with that look unless she orders it herself. Otherwise it is ok for him to pick out the clothes he will be wearing without you tagging along, unless he asks you to go with him. The argument does make sense that he didn’t go with you to pick your dress so you don’t need to go with him.

I went, but I usually help Darling Husband with his shopping.

I wont be going. Although there is nothing wrong with you going. I want his look to be just as much of a surprise to me as I will be to him. But I will be sending his mother to go along lol

The only reason I could think of to do it would be if you were trying to have the men coordinate with the women in some way, for example, if the men’s ties were supposed to be the same color as the women’s dresses.

I don’t plan to go with him. He knows what colors we need, its one thing he can do for the wedding.

I did. Fiance is great about getting things that fit, but clueless about style. And he knows I’m picky so I think he felt better knowing I approved. Granted, a tux is a tux for the most part, but there were some in the catalog that looked cheaper than others, and they’re made of different fabrics, etc.

I am very picky, and my Fiance has come to terms with this, so we went together. We have been twice, but haven’t done the fitting yet. My Fiance and I picked out his tux together, so we could have a cohesive look. I showed him before we went the look I was going for and he loved the tux, but when we went together he loved it even more. I did ask for his opinion and if he though we should change anything.

Darling Husband went alone, picked three that he liked and asked for my input for his final choice…

I did because Fiance asked me to go. We picked everything out but didn’t get to see all of it in store and won’t until he goes to pick it up. I was amazed at how much quicker (and cheaper) it was than my finding my dress!

My fiance did suggest going just with his groomsmen to get the tuxes (in order to save me time) but honestly, I just couldn’t let this one go. I really don’t want the tuxes to be a surprise, I want to make sure that they look modern and will coordinate with our colors and the bridesmaids. I was honest with him that I didn’t necessarily fully trust his fashion sense, and he understood that.

I went with my fiance, but I basically sat there, and let him do all the talking and looking- my only contribution was to pick out the tie for my dad to wear (since you want the dads to look different then the groomsmen)  He’s got pretty good sense of style, so I was happy with what he picked out, and I know he’ll look really handsome wearing it.
