- Wedding: June 2013
So this past weekend my Fiance was meeting his groomsmen to make the final decision on their attire….I wanted nothing to do with it (I just request no pin strip and keep it more on the classic side if he wanted…but it was a request Fiance had the power).
but my Fiance almost forced me to come. so I tagged along…
So there was 2 options for the men:
RENT a tux or BUY a suit
If they all wanted to rent then we were going for the Vera Wang Black from Moores Men’s wearhouse (It looks like a tux but it confuses me because the lapel isn’t satin…so no I am unsure if it’s truly a tux or not)
The majority of the guys said they they would prefer to buy (so they can use their outfit again) so to keep the price down we went for suits.
We looked at different options, but due to different price ranges it was deemed a difficult decision. Until my Fiance suggested that since my BM’s were wearing different dresses (in the same colour and material) that maybe the groomsmen could do the same. This is when I became a little concerned…hahah aren’t all suits going to look quite different? Then the store clerk laid out 3 black, 2 button suits next to each other in varying price ranges and although I could see the difference it was still very cohesive and (although I didn’t want to make any decision) I agreed.
So now the guys all have to get very black (not grey) suits (not sports coats or tuxes) with 2 buttons (not 3 or 1) with no over the top special embellishments (keeping it uniformed and classy), and we will have them all but the same (or very similar shirts) and the exact same ties (or bowties) and pocket napkins (in red to go with our colours.
Before purchasing my Fiance has to approve (by picture)
I guess I find this a cute story….I don’t need advice.
Has anyone ever considered doing mismatched (sorta mismatched) groomsmen attire? Pictures if you have?
Do you think this could be a trend in the future? Why or why not?
