Hahaha, oh geez. My Fiance never suggested anything that crazy, but he did want to wear ALL black and I wasn’t thrilled with the idea. We’re having a formal, black tie wedding and I just don’t feel like all black really fits the bill. I felt bad saying anything to him because he isn’t super involved in the wedding planning and seemed really excited about this decision. I couldn’t veto the one thing he was ‘contributing.’ I didn’t say anything and a few weeks later I pointed out a gorgeous tux in a magazine. I told him he would look absolutely amazing in it and it would be perfect. No mention of the all black ensemble by neither him nor I. I don’t know if he forgot about it or just conceeded to the other tux, but it worked out. I can only hope the same happens for you! Good God, can you imagine?!? Maybe he was kidding to rile you up????

I think it will be cute!

Fiance picked his own attire, and is wearing a tophat, tails, and wingtips!

Our wedding is in the morning.

My fiance wanted to wear a burgundy crushed velvet suit…I convinced him not to, since he’d be hot in June.  

What are your bridesmaids wearing?  What flowers are you carrying?

A purple suit doesn’t have to look like a magician necessarily. How about something a little more toned down like a royal blue?

@Overjoyed:  Maybe put together a pinterest board of men in suits with purple accents…and show him.  Say, “I love the idea of purple.  Have you thought of wearing it like this?”  I showed my fiance something similar, and he ended up going with tan instead of burgundy…

@Overjoyed: In terms of the best man, we’re doing the same thing & I’ve decided that I just won’t stress about it, but a Barney suit… I feel for you.

Now, how purple will this suit be – because it could end up being OK…

but it could also end up a total disaster…
