He can be so stubborn. We just got into one of our very few arguments about his groomsmen gifts. We are 30 days out from the wedding and I have already purchased gifts for my bridesmaids, ring bearers, flower girls, and both sets of parents. I have been reminding him over the past 6 months that he needs to think of ideas for his groomsmen. Tonight I mentioned that we need to nail this down so we can get them ordered and he said he is not getting them gifts. He said that purchasing their shirts and suspenders for the wedding is enough. I said that is not a gift, it is what we are expecting them to wear, plus we already passed those out and plan to hand out all other gifts at the rehearsal dinner. His argument is that he didn’t get a gift in the last wedding he was in and when I remind him that they bought his entire suit and shoes for the wedding he points out that it shouldn’t count if I won’t count his shirts/suspenders. I see his point but the reality is that I do not feel comfortable with not getting them something.
Does anyone have suggestions?? I told him I had to go and vent about him on Wedding Wire so hopefully one of you can help me talk some sense into him or help me come up with a brilliant idea. For reference another wedding he was in got personalized/engraved hunting knives so that’s a no go. He also is against flasks of any kind as his parents don’t drink and tries not to flaunt that we do.
