With the groomsmen we have that hasn’t gotten fitted (among other issues), we have told him that he is responsible for getting it and it’s on him if he has to pay the rush fee on it.  I don’t know who you are going through, but you may want to find out if they charge a rush fee.  If they do, I’d send out something letting them know.  Maybe that will light a fire under their butts.  Men’s Warehouse also informed us that or ushers, who are under 18, one is 19, should come in no earlier than 3 weeks prior because they can grow overnight so they want to get the best fit for them.  Hope this helps!

Oh I hear you. We’re getting married the week after you and I’ve been trying to get our groomsmen to go for the last few weeks just to get measured. I’ve now got 1/3. Good luck!

Is everyone relatively close in area? If so have your Fiance arrange a guys night and they’ll go get fitted and then go out for drinks or whatever afterwards. Darling Husband has been in 4 or 5 weddings since we’ve been together and it’s all for the same friends and this is how they always did it and there was never a problem. But yes they need to be getting on it asap and will more than likely have a rush fee.

I had to remind a couple of mine multiple times…  FI’s brother was the worst and his mom had to push him to go the day of the cut off!  You would think a grown man could figure something like that out…  Annoying!

Ahhhh, I feel this is going to be my biggest stresser as well!  My fiance is such a procrastinator! I love him to death but I am sick of hounding him to do stuff! He hasnt even asked all of his groomsmen yet!!
