Anonymous asked: I want my fiance to wear a suit like the one Tommy Ross wore in Carrie, but I feel bad like telling him what I want him to wear, any advice
My fiance turned to me to tell him what to wear because he has no fashion sense, “pick out my suit, pick out my tie, pick out ALL THE THINGS.” So I did.
Other brides let their groom do it entirely independently. One might argue “he had no say in my dress, why should I have a say in his wardrobe?”
I think there’s always room for negotiation in wedding planning, myself, even when it comes to what both people wear. Most grooms don’t put their two cents in when it comes to the dress because they don’t know much about women’s fashion, but if a groom said to his bride before she buys her dress, I really think you look beautiful in long flowy skirts, that’s okay, and she should, at the very least, consider his opinions too!
If it were me, I’d say that in an ideal world this is what I envisioned, what do you think? Stress you won’t be disappointed if that type of suit is too out of his comfort zone, as it is a bit stylized compared to a modern suit. Maybe compromise on something, like a fancier jacket and lose the frilly dress shirt. Maybe the most comfortable he’ll be is in just a regular blue suit and bow tie.
Just try not to pressure him, because if he’s not comfortable in what he’s wearing, it’ll make the wedding day less pleasant for him. Think how Ronald Weasley felt in his dress robes!
