I’m SO happy you posted this!  I had a 2 week long fight with my Fiance about why he had to wear either a vest or a tie, and that a suite jacket and pants was not formal enough for the groom.  My Fiance is a t-shirt and jeans guy, and I’m a girl who loves to dress up, but also spends sundays in sweat pants.  Generally, he will dress up for the occassion (i.e. a funeral, a wedding, and a nice dinner). he realizes things are expected of him.  And since I won the tie/vest argument for the wedding I guess to answer your question, he indulges me, but VERY grudgingly.  I always pull the it will make me VERY happy and I can’t imagine it any other way.  Also, I find that when he realizes I think he looks good, he’s more willing to listen to me.

Either way, I’m happy to know I”m not the only one with this problem

We cruised for our honeymoon too 🙂

You probably don’t want to tell your Fiance this, but they weren’t very strict at enforcing the formal wear on our cruise (Royal Caribbean). One guy at our table wore a button down shirt and khakis, and we actually showed up in shorts, because our luggage got lost. No one minded or commented. 🙂

It was five years before I ever saw my Fiance in a suit.

Last time I went to visit, he wore one just to pick me up at the airport because he thought I’d like it.

Men can change after all!!

my fi is definitely on this list!  He swears he is going to show up to the wedding in his favorite hiking boots (ugh!) I think maybe I’ve finally convinced him that it wouldn’t be appropriate but who knows!!

My Fiance is allergic to anything that isn’t stained and/or doesn’t have holes in it! I’ve known this man since I was 15, and our wedding day will be the first time I will ever seen him in a suit.
