@s2bmrscook:  I was chuckling at a few others (Mortal Kombat…my SO would so want that and the Duck Dynasty tux), but this one killed it for me. I actually laughed VERY loudly at work reading that last line.

@Duncan:  I don’t know why I’m bothering with this, but I chose his outfit, which I knew he would like, and found several tie options for him to choose from. He wanted no say in my outfit at all. I chose a charcoal flat front pant and matching vest with a white shirt, something that we’d seen examples of on Pinterest. We both hated the rental shoes, so we chose black Chucks because everyone has them. 

Actually, I take that back. I had wanted a birdcage veil, and he said that he didn’t like them, so I said whatever. Then he randomly came to me a couple of months later and said that he’d been looking at pictures and liked the birdcage veil look. I ended up making one.

@s2bmrscook:  For the record I think Jynx is the BEST name for a pitbull 🙂

PS I foster for the local shelter and we had a Pit EAT our guest bed. Like a queen size mattress was literally shredded.

@cooperlove:  PS My Fiance calls those linen shirts ‘Columbian Drug Lord Shirts’. He wanted one on the cruise and I was like – what are you talking about and he tried to explain it.

@2BeeMrsE:  “”that I haven’t heard since my mom drove the carpool.”” lol!

@lauralynn:  I had to make ribbon boutonnieres for the groomsmen because my Fiance told me him and his men weren’t wearing flowers.

@Duncan:  I have seen your posts before – it is known that you have a bit more fashion sense then most men of the general public. Most men like/prefer the guidance and 98% of them only have their feelings hurt for 25 seconds before they stop caring. If my Fiance was adament about wearing something I would work with him…but that is not usually the case.

@cooperlove:  This post made me laugh out loud!  It’s funny (or not) the things they choose to be so stubborn over!

@suburbian:  That’s quite the generalization.  Many men are conditioned to think they have no style, or that having style is feminine and therefore undesirable.  For many, it’s more that the whole thing is intimidating, rather than that they don’t care.  20 minutes of reading online, and/or the same amount of time spent listening to someone knowledgable, and they will start to understand how to look good.  And too many women would rather just dress their man for the rest of his life, than actually see him learn to do it well himself.  And I think we’ve all seen on here that just as many grooms are dressed badly by their brides as by themselves.

@Duncan:  While I didn’t come here to speak on the indocternation of the male species vs. ‘fashion sense’ I will point out that I (and many other brides on this thread) merely spoke about assisting their groom in finding something more appropriate then a camo suit or a monocle.

I do not choose his clothing and will never relagate him to that specific level of infancy. He wears the same clothes/styles he did when we met five years ago and his outfit for the wedding speaks to that. He agrees and the subject was over. End of story.

I didn’t generalize without feeling there was a use for it. In this specific sense the vocabulary I chose rings true – regardless of your belief that the past thousands of years were somehow about women doing our part to assure men that they shall rely on us to look good in a suit out of abject terrer less they fail. Please.

My fiance asked to wear chainmail and carry a sword, and then for our reccsional to be from Star Wars. 

 

I told him he could wear the chainmail if he didn’t cross over into uber cheese territory (we’re both history geeks, so while I won’t have a medieval dress, I’ll have medival jewelry/hair). However, it was a “hell no” to the Star Wars!

Darling Husband suddenly decided with 4 months to go until the wedding that he wanted him and all the groomsmen to wear matching kilts, and have bagpipes playing at the reception. The kicker here though is that he doesn’t even have Scottish or Celtic blood in his lineage, he just thought it “might be cool”.
Thankfully after talking it out for a few minutes he realized it was utterly ridiculous and decided to stick with the idea we’d already planned for, with the items we’d already purchased for the entire bridal party.

@missstarling:  No joke I have witnessed it! I went to a wedding where the groom and his merry men wore formal Camo Printed Long sleeve Shirts and black jeans. Not quite Tux but still very Duck Dynasty! But even though it was quite non traditional by far it was the most fun wedding I have ever had the privledge of attending.

Ooh a pole could be interesting.  I did sort of give him a say in the girls clothes in the say way, I’m sort of getting a say in his.  This is in that I asked him what type of wedding dresses he liked and allowed him to veto my original plan of having a red one.  I think he’ll like the one I got.  He also got to review the birdesmaid’s dresses and had veto power on any he hated.  He’s been working out what he wants to wear and I’ve given opinions on what I like best but at the end of the day, he’s the one wearing it.

 

In general with the wedding, I’m doing any sort of decor and logistics planning and he’s doing words and music as he is far better at the latter than me and I’m much better at actually realising a wedding takes planning more than a week in advance than he is! 🙂
