That does sound like a HUGE ass pain. But….he’s gained 30pounds. I know that when I go clothes shopping after gaining weight it is always a horrible, horrible experience. Everything seems wrong and like nothing will ever be good enough/the right price/what I want. I’m guessing he wanted you to come along as moral support to tell him that he looks amazing and handsome in the suits. 

I just think that it could be the root problem that makes everything else 10x worse.

SimTeam:  ugh. YES. I feel you. My Fiance vetoed our rehersal dinner caterer, so I told him to find another one. Suddenly, that caterer became acceptable. Ha. 

What about Combatant Gentleman? Our GMs are getting their suits made there, and for $160, it’s not a bad deal / fairly low risk. They own all parts of the supply chain, from sheep to finished product. Tony Hsieh, the founder of Zappos, is an investor.

We have yet to even pick the Groomsmen yet but I can already see the problems ahead. Money is going to be the main issue. I think guys just don’t really like to spend that kind of money. The Bridesmaid or Best Man are easy though most girls are all on board. Well at least mine are but guys can just be as complicated as women and don’t like to admit it.

Rolls eyes. That sounds just like my Fiance a few weeks back.  Grouchy all day, we couldn’t agree on what we wanted, and he ended up in a sulk the rest of the evening. They really can be big babies.  To top it off, we were only around 8 weeks away from the wedding at that point, and we’d not even begun thinking about the groomsmens suits.  Jeez.

Eventually, I just told him to get his act together and go shopping with his mates.  At least I knew that he wouldn’t be such a whiny thing with them the way he can afford to be with me.

Well he surprised me and came home with a decent suit so it all worked out… But I feel your pain!!

Finding suits is hard! I ended up letting the guys have “mismatched” suits. We have 2 “big & tall” groomsmen and another that is “short & small”. They just plain don’t make the same suit in those 2 sizes! 2 of our groomsmen got a merona suit from target for $70. 2 other’s got a suit from JCP for $120. Both are a similar mid-grey shade.  My fiance is going to get a light-grey suit from Express. I looked at a lot of pictures of mismatched groomsmen and in the end figured as long as they’re all pretty similar “mid-grey” that It can work. Our bridesmaids will be matching so that should help make the bridal party look ‘cohesive’.   https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/c7/ed/7a/c7ed7a766729177d05eb00cfb8f8a40c.jpg
