It's been a few days, but I had a good excuse.
FH has just been dropped off at the airport, tears wiped away as we countdown (again) til the next time we're together, and I am back at work as though my routine hadn't been altered a bit with holidays, shopping, wedding planning and, of course, quality time with FH. But it has, and I have lots of news!
We accomplished a lot this weekend, but amongst registering, DJ interviewing, pre-marital counseling, and more...
We picked out a tux, and I LOVE it.
I am really excited about this right now. Still have to decide on a color scheme for vests/ties...but we can get more specific later. The cut is classy, clean, and the pants only have on pleat (if you have seen two pleated tuxes...you will know why this is a good thing)
We stopped by Men's Wearhouse Tux, and didn't have a great experience with the salesmen there. It might have been a little bit cheaper there, but the woman who helped us at Formally Modern Tuxedo was so much more helpful, and with seven tuxes, we get two free! FH decided to be nice and split the cost with his GMs and it will come out to about $125 each guy.
There are three Chicagoland locations for Formally Modern, but I had a good experience at one of them and I would imgine they are similar at the other two locations.
