Maybe ask him what he will think of the tux in 10 years when he goes back and looks at pictures. I wanted my Fiance to wear a chocolate tux, but he said…”I’m not a trendy guy and I don’t want to look back and think, what the hell was I doing trying to be trendy. I’d rather be Classic!” I saw his point and we are going with black…but brown vests and brown and black striped tie! Maybe he’ll come around.

Why does he want to wear one? My cousin wore one and I thought he looked nice but really all I could think was “where’s the prom?!”

Take him to Men’s Warehouse and let him see one close up. Mr. Tattoo wanted a white tux until he got to see it in person. He said it reminded him of Big Band conductors Las Vegas lounge singers, and guys at high school prom. I whispered “Exactly.”

All I can think of is how hard it’s gonna be to match the ‘whites’ of your dress and his tux.

Maybe explain that to him?

Not to sounds racist, but is he black?  I think white tuxes tend to look better on black men than white men.

@bwbBride: I thought the same thing at first.

haha your post title made me laugh and @bwbride.  Just don’t let him wear all white, he will look like a milkman or icecream man.

Ohh lord, I feel your pain. My Fiance told me he wanted to wear a white tux, and I laughed because I thought he was joking. When I realized he was serious, I told him he could wear whatever he wanted…but I’m pretty sure, we’ll be going a different route.

OMG! I just had this discussion with Fiance this weekend. There will be no white tuxes in our wedding, really I want him in a charcoal grey suit and he is slowly coming around…

I think some of the pics here are pretty hot; and James Bond?? Definitely hot! 😉

But it could be hard to match the whites of his tux and of your dress…
