Upon hearing the news that I had completed my wedding ensemble (unless I do find a nice bolero/jacket) with the purchase of my red shoes, Mr. Funnel Cake admitted that he needs to start thinking about his own duds for the wedding. He hasn’t acquired anything yet! Obviously someone is not as excited as I was about picking out his wedding outfit.
Over the weekend, we visited his parents for his mother’s birthday, and Brother Funnel Cake quizzed us on his responsibilities for the wedding. (Cute!) Everyone was talking about what Mr. Funnel Cake and Brother Funnel Cake should wear, when the idea came up about Mr. FC wearing his military uniform.
Circa 2008: FC actually claims this is one of the ooonly photos he likes of himself.
Yes, Mr. FC is in the Swiss military, and actually if he wore his uniform it would be pretty unique. He is a lieutenant after all. Certainly none of my brothers will ever wear a Swiss uniform when they marry!
I’m not sure how serious Mr. Funnel Cake was about the uniform idea, but it seemed like it was dawning on him for the first time ever that this even is an option. He asked me if I would even want him to wear it, and I reminded him that I do think he’s handsome in uniform. Heck, put him in his green army garb before he goes parachuting, and I always have trouble restraining myself from tearing his clothes off. Something about that green undershirt gets me every time…mmmm.

OK, to be honest, I also exclaimed it would be JUST like he’s Prince William in his uniform and I’m Kate in my princess dress!! (I couldn’t help it.) That probably won’t help persuade him to wear the uniform, and I’m betting that he’ll end up in a black suit, but we’ll see. Wearing his uniform would certainly be cheaper!
Is your man wearing a uniform (or other non-tux/suit) outfit to your wedding?
