Fiance and I make joint choices together about our wedding, but he let me do what I wanted with my BMs and I with his Groomsmen. I consulted him about what I wanted my ladies to wear/colors and he voiced any postive and negative thoughts, which I considered, but he left it up to me in the end. I plan on doing the same whenever he sits down and plans out his Groomsmen and his suits.

Black is a more classic tuxedo look.

I think if this is the one thing he is voicing his opinion on, you should honor it. My Fiance is the same way about his style (I wanted suits, and he wants tuxes!) and at the end of the day if it makes him feel more comfortable and happy, why not? 🙂

I think in this case let him pick. How you would you feel if he veto your wedding dress or asked you to pick another color? He should be able to wear what he likes and wants on his wedding day.

I agree, let him wear what he wants.  It is just a color, and as a P said, you would not like him to pick out what you are wearing.  It is a celebration of the both of you, so if he has requests you should make them work.

I generally agree that you should let him have this one.

BUT my Fiance was the same way and in his case it was because he couldn’t envision any other colors. So I started showing him pics of the grays that others have worn. Not in a pushy way, just as a “hey this is nie”

We recently went where wedding where the guys were wearing really nice charcoal suits. Next thing I know, he’s saying he wants a dark gray now instead of black.

haha ya I had the same issue. I thought champagne or light tan suits would look perfect with our wedding theme, but fiance was adament about black as well and since like others have said, it is his day as much as mine and I want him to feel confident and handsome, I let it go. Im wearing what I want and he should be granted the same freedom…though my vision would have looked great..he just cant see it like i do haha…heres a pic of what i wanted


The bridesmaids will be in coral…would have looked great! buuut c’est la vie

Fiance and I have made pretty much all the decisions together. That having been said, he chose a tux that is “lighter” than I would have liked. I personally think you should just let him have this one.

I think you should let him have this one.  Even if it wasn’t his only thing, I would say that – the person wearing the clothes should get the final say IMO.  He’s wearing the tux, he should get to feel comfortable and happy with what he’s wearing.

He has to wear it. Let him pick it.

Let him have his black tux.  Like someone else above said, how would you feel if he tried to tell you what kind of dress you need to wear?
