This is proving to be more difficult then first thought. Taking into account the desert and a party in September in the UK is proving stressful for groom-to-be. (I feel weird saying H2B despite it being easier to type!)
So far we have looked at linen suit, short suit, chinos and shirt but he seems to be settled on chinos, shirt, waistcoat. Like this:
The problem comes when he involves his two best-men. He wants matching outfits for the party, which is fine. We'd get the waistcoat and tie and hopefully, they'll have the chinos and a white shirt. But they think he should wear a suit because it'll be more formal, whereas nothing about this wedding is formal. Getting married in the desert is hardly a formal affair. Having strangers be your witnesses isn't formal. The only thing that really matters is comfort really.
We've found a place called Tweed & Groom in Barnsley, who have everything he wants, so he has booked to go there with the two best men in May.
I think he is just having a bit of a flap and will settle after it's out of his system. He is happy to wear converse on his feet though - so we've ticked that box.
It's a funny little role reversal, we have them quite a bit. I love football. He hates it. I found my dress shopping an easy experience, he is having a nightmare finding something to wear. No big deal. I'm sure he'll sort something out - and if not, it isn't the end of the world!
I'm sure he'll settle on something. To me a suit seems ridiculous for your wedding but each to their own!
We are planning on going to tweed and groom so would be very interested to hear your opinions!
I will definitely report back about the experience there. So far, they seem super helpful. There aren’t many places which offer something a bit different from the usual suits!
Yes I found that, H2B wants tweed and you really don't get much in the more mainstream places!
