I thought my groom and his buddies looked wonderfully dashing in their tuxedos. However, the tuxedos were not without their own drama. When we placed our order at the Men's Warehouse, we requested off-white colored shirts as my dress was ivory and bright white shirts would have made my dress look dirty. After we made that shirt request, I confirmed it with the sales associate before we left the store - you know, just to make sure - he kindof rolled his eyes at me and said, "yes ma'am...you made the request....we already put in the order."
Fast forward to when the boys picked up their tuxes in Las Vegas. Sure enough...they were all the wrong color. ALL were bright white, except Tommy's...which was the correct color. AND...they didn't quite fit all the guys right, despite the boys getting measured prior! The poor dudes hated the itchy jackets....and the pants were itchy....and the shoes were incredibly uncomfortable too. The icing on the cake was the fact that the sales people were douche bags in Vegas. Unfriendly. Unaccommodating. Unhelpful. Just a bunch of sh*t heads. I felt bad.
Whereas I thought the boys looked really nice, Tommy was less than thrilled. He was bummed about the awkward fit, the awkward pleating, and he just didn't like how they looked. How heartbreaking is that?
If we had it to do over, we would have had them wear their own suits...any color (which was what Tommy wanted to do in the first place!) We went with the Mens Warehouse because we thought it would be easiest, the most convenient, and the cheapest route (as a couple of the guys don't own suits). Here's one of those things where you get what you pay for.
