Why does he have to be there for fittings?  One of my groomsman is in Texas, which is why we chose to do a national chain to rent tuxes, so he can just go to a shop there.  Couldn’t he at the very least just get his measurements taken by a professional out there and give them to you so you can order him a suit/tux?

Could he do a reading or be an usher?

Ok, I know Alaska is super far, but like Tulip said too, we have people in our wedding party from all over the country, NH-TX-CA-FL, if you get the tuxes/suits from mensware house (and if there is on in Alaska) it’s no big deal at all. 

But if that can’t happen for whatever reason, why not have him do a reading during the ceremony?

The men’s warehouse in AK is on Dimond Blvd, in Anchorage.  🙂  I was there!  

I would just tell him to make an appointment.  What school is he going too?

well sorry!  I can’t help about the FBKs then, cause I am not too sure about that area… I live like 300 miles away.

I think the only one is in Anchorage. just tell him to make a weekend of the drive. 🙂  j

Well, in case the “fittings” are kinda a cop out (i.e. cost, comfort zone, numerous other things) have him do a “reading” or passage during the wedding, depending on the kind of ceremony or your religion I’m sure there’s MANY other ways he can participate.

Hey there – thought I would mention that I have a bridesmaid coming to NYC from AK for my upcoming wedding and she’s getting her measurements from her tailor/dry-cleaner and sending them to me. I’m sure that he can get fitted somewhere in Fairbanks and send you the measurements, no? Or there is always a reading too, not a bad idea!
