@k8:  I know how you feel, but let him have what he wants.  They get to make so few decisions for themselves about the wedding.

@k8:  I think the best thing is to get them into a store so they can try on the various looks that are being considered and see them on themselves for real. Having said that unless my Fiance was wanting to wear something totally out there I’m happy to let him have his preferred choice.  That seems only fair as I got to choose my outfit πŸ™‚

@k8:  I think the bow tie looks very nice too. If you cant persuade him gently, dont bother pushing hard. He should feel comfortable in what he wears.

Take him out shopping, then convince him to try both on, then convince the sales person to support your choice while he’s in the changing room πŸ™‚ Can you tell I do this all the time? lol 

But in the end, let him wear what he wants. It’s his wedding too, you know? πŸ™‚

Oh, and make sure he tries on the bow tie first, some guys just can’t pull them off. Mr. Meow, for example, has a round face and bow ties are not his friends! He hates them with a passion πŸ™‚

@k8:  Maybe! They’re not for everyone. There’s a funny story being told in my family about how my Dad once put on a bow tie when I was about 3 years old. I came up to him and said “waiter, one pizza please”. My Dad burst out laughing and changed into a regular tie πŸ™‚ 

So yes, definitely do a “maitre d’hotel” check first! πŸ˜€

I let Darling Husband have free reign on the suits. He was SO excited about choosing them, that I couldn’t tell him no!

@k8:  Does he get a say in what you wear? If not then pay him the same respect.

@k8:  Navy suits are an awesome look.  They’re better than navy Tuxedos, (which aren’t dark enough for those of us classically minded on Black Tie) and every man should have at least once navy suit.  I’m sure he’ll be happy to oblige with a single breasted best.

I think it all comes down to the “formality” of the occasion.

Women tend to choose the event & setting … and Men tend to set the “tone” (dress code)

Altho when it comes to a Wedding, Brides choose their attire first, and then Men have to ante up

So the difference between being in a Tux and a Suit can be substantial IMO…

What is the setting of your Wedding… is it more formal than casual ?

If you have your dress, what is the “tone” that it conveys etc.
