Fiancé’s Attire

I need help trying to make a decision y’all! I want slacks and he wants jeans. I want to meet him in the middle but I feel like once the reception starts he will remove his jacket and all he will have is a button down with a pair of jeans which is what I’m trying to avoid! Fiancé’s Attire 1

    Jeans?! Hahah I’d be losing my mind! Maybe remind him that his wedding day is his chance to look as sharp as possible, especially if you’ll be in a traditional wedding dress. I think the mismatched slacks and jacket in your picture actually is the middle ground between jeans and a suit or tux. Good luck!! 😊

    I do think the slacks look better but if he wants jeans I’d just let him

    He doesnt dictates your choice, why you doing it to him. Maybe you could ask he chose black (or a more classy color) jeans, if he wants to wear them, as a gift to you. That way he is comfortable and it blends more. You probably didnt marry cause he asked "if the wine was from the apps of spain, or southern France, since it is of a vital importance and by god where are the quality lobster canapes?!" So why start now trying to brush him up on cotillion etiquette classes. He probably didnt ask for much on something that is his day to so ask what's the harm.

    Dark denim might be a good compromise here!

    My husband wanted to wear jeans. I pointed out to him that I would be wearing the most expensive item of clothing I was ever likely to wear, plus professional hair and makeup, and that I was worried he would look underdressed next to me, and that we were spending money on a photographer so I really wanted lovely photos of the two of us. He saw my point. Having said that, I didn’t care if he changed for the reception once we were done with photos, as a compromise - he didn’t, in the end, but I know he thought about it.

    If he does insist on jeans, very dark would be the way to go I would think.
