Ultimately the choice has been his all the way… But he does ask my opinion thou – I was actually going to go with Fiance to the suit hire place but we decided to buy a suit off the rack instead and alter it, I did go with him to buy the suit… But not because I needed a say but because he wanted me there (plus I had the money for it :))

ETA: groomsmen are just wearing what Fiance is wearing but in the Bridal Party colours… FIs choice…

my Fiance and I went shopping together then sent pics to the Groomsmen to make sure they all liked before we purchased ๐Ÿ™‚

My fiance cares about the whole wedding planning but he for the most part has let me pick everything. He has horrible taste except when it comes to me. Totally Kidding!

I went in picked the tuxes and had them filed, so all he has to do is go in give his name and get fitted. He did see what I chose and likes it. ๐Ÿ™‚

My husband and I picked together. My husband, bless his heart, told me that he didn’t really care what they wore, as long as it was what I wanted/what would make me happy. He’s a smart man. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But we went to the tux place and figured it all out together.

We went together.  He didn’t really have a preference at first but as we were looking at the suits/tuxes he came alive, lol.  I was actually surprised that he went for the more expensive designer version than the store brand, I had said I didn’t mind but I was hoping he’d pick the Calvin Klein :-).  He picked out his tie (it has a pattern to it and the Groomsmen will have plain silvery gray) and I was shocked he liked the look of a pocket square!!!  Seriously his “uniform” is a polo and khaki shorts or a polo and jeans in the winter time…generally the polo is always striped lol!  We had to duke it out for a sec on the shirt color though…he wanted black…and you know  how we all have a vision…I told him as much as I love Johnny Cash he couldn’t play that at the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

I went with Fiance to the tux rental place. We had already discussed it and agreed on grey tuxes. He made the final call as to WHICH grey tux though. Haha.

We went together. It was mostly his decision but I wanted it all to make sense.

Note: I was with him when we went and picked up his tux yesterday and there was a poor guy in there SO CONFUSED about what his fiancee wanted him to pick. :/ I was like, “Why don’t you call her?” His eyes brightened up and he said, “Can I do that?” haha.

Uhh..I pretty much decided for him, lol. But we are doing grey tuxes so there’s not a ton of different choices out there. He is choosing the shirt/vest/tie.

We haven’t gone to look yet, but we’ve discussed what I envision, tan suits and he liked it! We’re are going in a few weeks 8]

Yeah I had a very particular vision, but he choose it what he wanted to wear and I thought it was nice, but not exactly what I wanted. To me it’s like a dress you want Fiance to like it, but you don’t let him choose it. Same for his attire he wants me to like it but didn’t let me sit and dictate.
