I’ll let you know when he decides… I don’t think he cares much about his attire. I get the feeling it’ll be a last minute thing.

What is your Fiance wearing? A black two button, notched lapel tuxedo with black pants, black round toe tuxedo shoes, white pleated tux shirt, and an ivory tie.

Where did you guys get it from? Men’s Warehouse, we bought the tux.  They were having a great buy one tux/suit and get the other for $100.  We bought it versus renting due to our 7 night cruise having 2 formal dinners and needing to wear a tux for them.

Did he pick it himself? Yes, he completely picked it himself. 

Did you see and approve it?   Yup, I was at the store with him just looking as he made all the decisions regarding how many buttons, notched or not, etc.  I can’t wait to see the final look on him!

What are the groomsman wearing? They are wearing a Joseph & Feiss two button black tux similar to FI’s, but with purple vest and purple tie.

Where did you get it at? Men’s Warehouse.

What is the dad’s wearing? Right now, I have no clue yet what my dad will be wearing.  Probably a tux as well.  My Fiance doesn’t think his dad needs to be in a tux since he has no real part in the wedding and might just be wearing a suit.  I’m a bit worried.  Lol.

Something special– Don’t believe so.

 

Here’s a photo of what FI’s tux will look like:

@actime:  Yes, very true.  Although they have some choices in regards to pleated shirts, pants, etc etc.  They definitely don’t have the unlimited amount of choices like we do for our dresses.  FI said he’s glad his clothes for the wedding are so easy to pick out lol.

We still haven’t figured this out yet! Mr. Phoenixandstars has ideas but has been more concerned about getting the bridesmaid dresses figured out! LOL! Hoping to move forward on this soon!

Fiance is wearing a black suit with a white shirt and black/purple/white tie.  GMs are wearing black suits, white shirts, and purple ties.   No bouts for them – just pocket squares.

I think Future Father-In-Law is wearing a black suit – but he hasn’t gotten it yet.

The suits are of their own choosing.

What is your Fiance wearing? Jean Yves Steel Grey two button notch lapel tuxedo, ivory micro fiber shirt, diamond white vest and tie, black comfort shoe.

Where did you guys get it from? The bridal shop I work at rents tuxedos/suits through Jim’ Formal Wear, so that’s where we got it. My fiance gets his for free because we’re ordering more than 5, plus I think my boss(the owner of the shop) might do some kind of discount for us, but I haven’t talked to him about it yet.

Did he pick it himself? Yes and no. I’ve been working at the shop for over a year and had started looking at tuxes back in December when my fiance’s sisters came in to get measured for their dresses. At that point I basically decided that I loved the dark grey tux, and my fiance isn’t a huge fan of black suits/tuxes. Then he stopped in to look at tuxes one day and he started saying he wanted the “Somerset Cutaway” which is basically an English Mourning suit. Don’t get me wrong, I love the tails and the suit is nice and all, but we’re having an afternoon wedding and I felt like the tails were too formal for what we wanted. So, after a few weeks he  came back in and decided to go with the Steel Grey.

Did you see and approve it?   Read the above novel… lol I pretty much picked it out, but he finally agreed with me. 

What are the groomsman wearing? They have the same Jean Yves Steel Grey tux with ivory shirt and black comfort shoe, but the groomsmen will have vests and ties in Sangria (basically the same as Alfred Angelo Berry, which is the same color my girls are wearing).

Where did you get it at? Jim’s Formal Wear/The Bridal Barn and Tux Shoppe 

What is the dad’s wearing? We haven’t decided yet. They might just get standard black tuxedos with black vests and ties, or we might just have them wear a suit. 

Something special– Nah.

Photo below shows the tux with lavender vest and tie.

What is your Fiance wearing? His usual black suit, with white shirt and charcoal grey tie.

Where did you guys get it from? Suit is from his closet; we haven’t bought the tie yet. I think we’re getting it from Macy’s.

Did he pick it himself? He decided on the black suit and that groomsmen would wear matching ties (that he will give them as one of their gifts). I did some online research to find ties, narrowed it down to three choices, the final choice between those three will be his.

Did you see and approve it? I totally approve it – though I was skeptical/slightly disappointed at first (especially before we picked our ceremony venue). I thought it would be fun to pick out nice men’s attire…but the reality is, that isn’t what his friends typically do in their wedding (they’re a black suit crowd), renting a tux for a destination wedding will be a pain, and a tux for a beach wedding is a bit of overkill.

What are the groomsman wearing? Same thing as the groom.

What is the dad’s wearing? I assume they’ll wear suits. Hadn’t really thought about it. But we’re not “making” them wear anything special. Though now that you ask this question, I wonder if we should get the same ties for them? Or is that overkill?

@actime:  hahaha yeah. His best man lives with us and my fiance showed him the options and he said he liked the steel grey the best. lol I think he knew all along that he wanted the steel grey, but he’s very stubborn and didn’t want to agree with me right away. haha

What is your Fiance wearing? Classic black tux w/ bowtie. His choice. I tried to steer him away from this because he has a very round face, but it’s what he wants!

Where did you guys get it from? We are getting it from Mr. Formal because I won their huge grand prize at a bridal show.

Did he pick it himself? Yes, he has always wanted the classic look.

Did you see and approve it? We haven’t actually gone to try them on yet because he is going through a pretty significant weight loss so we are waiting until he’s a little closer to where he wants to be.

What are the groomsman wearing? They are wearing the same black tux/vest but with a regular tie instead of a bowtie.

Plus I have a bridesman and he is wearing a black suit, but with a champagne vest/tie to match the bridesmaid’s dresses.

Where did you get it at? Ditto on the Mr. Formal grand prize drawing.

What is the dad’s wearing? Same black tux but with all white vest/tie.
 

Something special– We are buying the groomsmen and my bridesman all custom cufflinks to match their personalities/hobbies.

Ring Bearer – My 11 y/o nephew will be wearing a black suit with burgundy vest/tie.

And then we are also having my 2 brothers (ages 23 and 13) as ushers. They will probably wear black slacks and vest (no jacket) with some kind of patterned burgundy/black/white tie.
