I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I didn't mean to not blog, but it just kind of happened...oops! Anyway, I'm back, and I've been dying to post about this for almost 2 months, so here goes.
We aren't doing tuxes for our groomsmen, we're doing suits, for several reasons. Ryan has been in so many weddings, and the amount of money he has spent renting tuxes is huge. Ryan is much more comfortable in a suit, and most of the groomsmen already have a black or dark gray suit. If they don't have one, they can buy one for less than the cost of renting a tux. Overall, we felt that suits were a better fit for our wedding.
And it gave us an excuse to find Ryan a slim-cut suit! My man is a runner, which means he is all lean muscle. Those big bulky suit jackets just don't look right on him, but the European slim cut is perfect for him. We found his suit at H&M a month or so ago (it took me this long to photograph him in it....what can I say, we don't live in the same place!) and I got it for Ryan for his Christmas present. H&M does not have the best customer service in that what's in the store is your option and that's it. They will not order in a different size or color for you, or even bring in something from another H&M store. But, I guess you get what you pay for, right? We lucked out and found a 3 piece black suit for Ryan in the West County mall H&M and snatched it up. Ryan tried it on for me with the white button down we got for him at Macy's and the tie he picked out.
You can't really see it in the pictures, but the suit has a very subtle black pin stripe woven throughout the fabric. The white button down also has a subtle stripe woven into it. The shirt is Geoffery Beene from Macy's and the tie is Alfani, also from Macy's. I can't find either one on the Macy's website, and I also can't find the suit anywhere on the internet.
Anyway, I think he looks unbelievably dashing in this suit. I am so glad he found something he's happy with! I think our groomsmen will look wonderful in suits as well.
What is your groom wearing?
