Sigh! So tonight, he casually mentions, “Oh, so what do you want the groomsmen to wear, since it’s too late to order tuxes?” REALLY??? He’s done like two things to help out with the wedding and he can’t even manage to coordinate the tuxedo rentals???? What the hey? GRRRRRRR!!!!! And THIS behavior from the man who, at the beginning of the engagement said he wasn’t going to be one of those grooms who lets their brides get all stressed out and do everything.
To answer his question, I said, “I want them to wear tuxedos.”

@Angelique02: why is it too late to rent them?

It’s no where near too late to order tuxes!!!! Ours weren’t finalized until like three weeks before the wedding. Tell him to go to Men’s Wearhouse and get his shizzle together!

Yeah, there should still be time to rent tuxes.

Yep, it’s not too late! We bought suits for Fiance and the GMs from Men’s Wearhouse and they were in in 4 weeks to the day. Easiest wedding task to complete on our list 🙂

we just went to men’s warehouse to look at the tuxes and they said we dont have to go back until a month before. you have more then enough time!!! where are you looking at getting them from?

No, apparently it’s not too late. I am just PISSED that he can’t even be bothered to coordinate THAT detail. Nevermind that I have to do every-stinking-thing else!!!! I talked to the people where I bought my dress today and they made it all very simple. I’ve just decided, since he obviously CAN’T get his shizzle together, when I go get my fitting next week, I’m gonna pick them out myself, and he won’t get any say at all! Screw this depending on him crap! He’s making me do everything else anyway…

Awww, sorry you are dealing with all the stress. I can definitely say I am in your EXACT boat. I had to practically drag my guy to the suit shop. ugh… Men…

Tell him to kick his butt into high gear! If he does go into Mens Wearhouse, they really do try their best to make it easy for the guys. All he has to do is answer a few questions as far as color goes and they will pretty much take it from there and show him what his options are. They are a good option for tuxedo rentals…. especially if not all your guys are local. They will give you a code and your guys can get fitted at any mens wearhouse with that code and their names and style information are already put in the system for them. Theres no way its too late for tuxedo rentals but I would tell him he needs to go and get them ordered ASAP just to be on the safe side!
Good Luck and Happy Planning!

lol I feel your pain! I originally wanted a tiny tiny wedding. in fact I would’ve been happy just going to the courthouse. but Fiance didn’t like that idea at all, he wants to celebrate with our loved ones (and to use his words..”a courthouse wedding would kill my mom” lol). Now I’m super excited, it’s going to be one hell of a party. but I’m also feeling overwhelmed. is he doing any of the researching, or calling vendors, shopping? of course not. sigh…
tell your fiance to switch duties. you’ll figure out the tuxedo situation and he can take care of everything else 😉

@felloutofbed: hehe…if we switched roles…well, we either wouldn’t HAVE a wedding, or it would be in his back yard, with him arriving on a horse, no photographer, no videographer, no flower girl or ring bearer, and certainly no flowers or cake, and only registering at Cabellas for shotgun shell reloaders and stuff like that. Shoot, I’m having so much trouble finding a cake person I’m not sure we’re going to a cake anyway. Grrr….But yeah, I’m sitting here thinking to myself, “Look Mr–Our marriage ain’t gonna be like this: with me taking care of everything. You’re in for a rude awakening.”
I mean, he can’t even be bothered to *look* at the website of the tux place I picked out, even though he promised several times to do so. What I wanna know is, what is he spending all his free time doing, if it ain’t stuff he *says* he’s gonna do, but never gets to it?
