For us it was freakin argyle socks that were the right colors. Dh wanted green and black argyle socks with yellow accents. They were impossible to find. We finally found gray and green ones from Express that Darling Husband really liked, but that was only after searching website after website!

We had issues with DH’s bow tie. He wanted to look very Cary Grant. He is a larger guy and wanted to get a larger bow tie. We looked for months to try to find him one. What was even more aggrivating was it seemed like in every movie we watched, there was a man with a big bow tie on in the movie. I spent hours googling, with no luck. Darling Husband finally just decided he would suck it up and wear the one that came with the tux, fearing it would look crazy. Then 3 days before the wedding, my mom calls and says that she think she found one. She found it for $6.95. Couldn’t believe it. It was perfect.

Purple argyle socks…wow. That was a search. FINALLY found the last 4 pair at Nordstrom Rack.


The main kicker was a mustard colored cardigan. I won’t get into specifics except to say the very last one in a size small that Macy’s carries in the United States was 3 blocks from my house. And when I got there the lady said she couldn’t find it. Cue hysterics and my poor loving Fiance aimlessly searching for yellow sweaters holding them up asking, “would this work?”, while I screamed, “IT’S THE ONLY ONE!”. Lady found it after double checking in back. I apologized. But really. If she had looked hard enough the first time everything would have been fine. My Fiance is amazing.
