You should just go with him if the bestman is seemingly clueless…  I don’t think its controling but just don’t be upset with them.  Maybe the bestman got overwhelmed once he got to the shop. 


Good luck.  I would totally be annoyed though : P

To be fair to the Best Man, I’d hate to be in a position where I would worry about picking the wrong color and upsetting the bride.  It might be better if you went with him, so he could show you the color he likes and make sure you are happy with it before the order is placed.

You aren’t a control freak!  I’d go with them and give your opinion…I think it’s a completely normal thing for the bride to be involved in these decisions!  If it’ll make you feel better, just do it!!

Most formalwear stores have all their merchandise online for viewing as well as samples in stores. You can always write down your ideas, send them in with a list, and let the consultants show your men what you liked so they can choose from a few different looks. (I work at a tuxedo store, I see it A LOT!!) Believe me, it makes things so much easier becuase you know you like them all, and they get to pick what they like too.

Plus, your consultant is there to help them, not to confuse them. Give them a call before they go in again to iron out your concerns ahead of time!
