lol he’d probably make an emergency trip to get a tan shirt before the wedding!  Do you have the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress? Maybe take it to him and put it up against his tux idea. Then he can visually see how that may look bad in pictures?

can you get a swatch? sometimes guys just need that visual. They just don’t see the big picture! lol (i know mine doesn’t until he can acutally see it right in front of him!)

At least your buy is better than mine! Haha. Mine is looknig around for a tux that has the really long back. I forget what they are called, but I want to laugh inside. But he’s excited, I just let it go. I don’t think it matter what he looks like or if he matches the bridesmaids. What matters is that he is excited about the wedding, and wants to look as he imagined he would on the big day (just like us brides with our dresses)

OMG!!!! I would die!  Don’t we women have the final say in what they wear that day?  My man is feeling the same way about that decision and he is the one that should make the choice.  Whom really does make the final decision??  Also, gently tell him that the color doesn’t go well and that he should consider something else.  The swatch idea is a good one too. Good luck!

I’m dreading taking my man shopping for tux’s.  I think he wants to go w/my dad and that’s NOT much better!

Why don’t you compromise? A very light grey shirt would actually look good qwth a darker color of grey suit.(and it would beat the heck out of a tan shirt!)

Maybe then he would go for a tie that incorporated a bit of the rust color.

Show him what thats going to look like.. He is probably not realizing and doesnt realize his “vision” isnt going to be visually apealing.

All I can say is I sympathize with you. Mine is sooo picky about stuff. We haven’t gotten to the suit/tux yet, but I am dreading it. He wants a brown suit or tux. I guess it’s fine as long as it’s DARK. But really… I was so excited that he cared and now I am wishing he was the “just tell me when/where and I’ll be there” type. Ugh. Sorry, hon. I feel ya!

Aww, I totally feel for you. My fiance is the same way. He has an opinion on everything… he wants all of his Groomsmen to wear white (not tuxes, but traditional filipino wear). I’m trying to compromise, but not sure how.

Let me know what ends up working for you!
