When it came to my hubby’s outfit, he didn’t pick out exactly what I would want him to, but I felt that if he lets me dress the way I want to, I should do the same for him. Plus, on the wedding day his outfit will be the last thing you’re thinking/worrying about.

I think @artbee is right. If he really wants to wear an orange ruffled tux, fine. I wouldn’t want my Fiance to wear that, either, but I also wouldn’t want to set up any possibility for resentment. He might end up talking himself out of it as the day gets closer, anyway.

generally i’m all for compromise, but i’m not sure that there’s really much of a compromise that exists between a normal black tux and an orange ruffley one. maybe an orange tie? honestly, i’d say let the issue rest for a bit as you still have awhile until the wedding. maybe he’ll realize on his own that he’s probably not going to want to look back at pictures and see himself dressed up as a character from dumb and dumber at his wedding.

Maybe you can find one on ebay / costume shop / etc for cheap for the reception, then he can rent a regular tux for the ceremony. You have a long time – let it go for a while. I agree he won’t actually want his photos to look silly.

I totally thought of “Dumb and Dumber”. Maybe the idea of orange tie and vest will quench his desire to wear an orange tux at the ceremony? I think the compromise of a more traditional tux/suit for the wedding and an orange outfit for the reception.

Let us know how this pans out!

I would just have him go into a tux place w/ you and let him pick the tux out…maybe he will end up liking a light tan tux w/ orange vest/tie, or chocolate brown tux w/ orange vest/tie instead…

I’m all for compromise with an orange tie/shirt/vest.  I think that would be fine.  Where does one purchase an orange tux…if this is the route you’re going.

I wouldn’t worry about resentment.  Try to find a cheap/affordable orange tux in a thrift store or ebay and surprise him with it.  And I would just drop the subject in the meanwhile.  That way, if you pull it off, he’d be so psyched.  And I wouldn’t worry about resentment, chances are you wouldn’t be the only person that shoots down that idea.
