One wedding-related thing that we did was check out the possibility of buying the supplies for his mother to sew the vests and ties. It’s a lot more expensive for the supplies than I anticipated. $80, and that’s without the interfacing we’d need to buy. Yikes!
When I picked up my wedding dress (which fits almost perfectly), I looked at the books they had with vests and ties; baby sister wrote down the types I liked and I got online to find locations that sell those types.
Next month, when I’m in Columbus, we’re going to go to a local place I found online to see if they have the vests/ties and are willing to rent them without us renting the tuxes, too. If so, that’s the route we’ll go–especially if it’s the less expensive route.
