Ok so our wedding party has changed a few times, only the guys side and mainly because they keep getting in trouble or can’t make it to the wedding. So it’s now 3 weeks till the wedding and 1 groomsmen has still not gone to MW and gotten fitted and paid for his tux. My fiance has called him repeatedly to remind him and every time he says he will go the following week. He has known for a year now that he was a groomsmen. Another groomsmen was chosen to fill-in for one of the “bad apples” and went to get his tux immediately. I am not sure I can count on this guy to actually get his tux and show up on the day of the wedding. He says he is honored to be in the wedding but continues to procrastinate getting anything done. I am tired of reminding my fiance to call him! Please help!

Maybe you could tell him that he HAS to get it by a certain date? That way, he can’t put it off anymore. You could tell him the cut off for tux fittings for your date is Monday. We did this with FI’s groomsmen, and they all got their tuxes on time.

Men’s Wearhouse has a deadline, right? Our wedding is May 29, and the fitting deadline is May 15 (2 weeks). If any of our guys get measured after that date, they have to pay extra. Tell him that he will have to pay more if he gets measured late and be very clear about the deadline, and then let it go until the deadline comes. After that, call him every day, if you must. Sorry he’s being a pain!

Do you guys live near him? Could your Fiance just go with him this weekend or something to make sure it gets done? My Fiance is going with his groomsmen individually to get fitted, I think it’s nice because then it shows that he is also excited they are going to be in the wedding.
If you guys don’t live near each other, you can’t really do that then. I would remind him of the deadline that MW gives you and tell him they will charge extra if he does it after. It literally takes like 5 minutes, it’s weird he is dragging his feet so much.
