If I saw my Fiance wearing a tuedo shirt, I would do a U turn in the aisle. I think it is direspectful. He doesn’t necessarily have to weat a tuxedo, or even a suit. There are lots of great pics on the net of guys wearing vests, shirt and pants.

Usually I’m of the mind that “it’s his day too, let him make his own decisions” but I’d draw the line at the tuxedo t-shirt. It’s really low class in my opinon.  If he wants to change into it for the reception, then I’d probably let him talk me into that, but not for the ceremony.

Perhaps you can steer him towards some of the more stylish but still very casual menswear choices out there?  The rockabilly/retro trend brings a lot of really snazzy casual options for men.  While that fashion trend has probably passed its peak, I think it’s still a nice, sharp look that is also pretty “approachable” for a less traditionally dressed groom. Here is an example which honestly i’d be OK if my Mr wanted to wear for our wedding (although I’d probably look for one without the logo— just the first I could find on google):  http://8ballwebstore.com/thedragraceloungeshirt.aspx

Actually, our son wore one, under a black suit.  He looked really good!  Unfortunatley, our pics aren’t back yet, do I can’t prove it to you.

Would that be a good compromise?

(if you’re having an afterparty tell him he can wear it then. or wear it at the rehearsal or something)

It was my idea that Fiance wear his tuxedo t-shirt for the last hour of the reception- it totally fits his personality, and the photos will be great. But earlier in the day- no way- I agree with julies1949, I’d find it very disrespectful coming down the aisle.

Do you think he’d compromise with changing into it later?

I would hope he has more respect for marriage than that.  Is he 13?   I don’t find it funny.

 But your wedding is a good ways off.   Perhaps he’ll change his mind.

What about nicely pressed jeans and a white/blue/gray/green button down? I agree that there is a time and place for the tuxedo shirt, and the wedding probably isn’t one of them.

I agree that a nice button down and a tie would be an appropriate compromise. I mean…he only has to wear it for the ceremony and photos..then maybe a tshirt for the reception.

I would force him to wear a real dress shirt. That’s just childish.

My SO wears a shirt similar to that he got from his parents as a “fun” gift a couple years back. I can’t imagine him ever, EVER even saying he’d wear it for our wedding. Pshh. I’d tell him to throw that idea out quickly!

I think that some guys like to joke about stuff that they know they will actually never do. Examples from my dude: get a ring tattoo, have groomsmen wear ties from their favorite sports teams, wear a tuxedo shirt for the wedding, etc. If your fiance is anything like mine, just smile and nod and don’t make a big deal out of it. He will eventually (and you have plenty of time) come around. If he doesn’t, definitely work out a compromise where he maybe wears it later on in the reception for dancing (whatevs) but NOT for the ceremony. 🙂
