i’m not a fan either, but you might find that if this is something he is dead set on, this might be a battle you don’t want to have to pick.  you get to pick your dress, and he should get to pick his attire too (not to play devil’s advocate, but y’know)

i was a bridesmaid in a wedding where the groom wore white and it was fine…i’ve attached a pic:

Yea –  i’m not a huge fan of it either, but …pick your battles I guess?  I like what ejs4y8 did.  Throw some white in there, but the suit doesn’t need to be white.  Make him go try on a white tux and see if he honestly like the look of it…hopefully that doesn’t fuel his fire though ;/

Mine wanted white also and I didn’t. I told him that if that is what he truly wants then he could wear the white, but that I was kind of looking forward to being the only one wearing white. That was the end of the conversation. I left him with the option, but made my wishes known in a nice way. We went to look at tuxes this past weekend and we ended up getting black for him. I didn’t say a thing while he looked at the white, and I let him know that I was/am very thankful that he chose the black. I think the style of the tux came into major play though. We are having a morning/afternoon wedding/reception and when he saw the morning tux, he liked it better than the white one.

Let your guy know how you feel, but let him make the decision. You know what looks good on him and you can point him in that direction without being pushy and chances are that he will end up picking what you want with him thinking it was/is his idea.
