Our wedding is at the end of June, and FI is planning on wearing basically dress pants with a tie and a jacket. Since he doesn't own these items and is currently on a medically-supervised weight loss plan, he doesn't really want to buy them in the size he is/will be at the wedding. We have scheduled his tux rental/fitting appointment for the latest possible recommended date (per the shop we're renting at) which is in two weeks. The problem is, by the time of the wedding, he will most likely weigh 30-40 pounds less than he does now. Even if we push the fitting date back, he is losing so rapidly there will be a significant size issue.
How much of a difference will this make in how the pants and jacket fit him? How much can they adjust the fit when he picks it up? Should we get him measured, subtract a size or two and hope for the best? Is there someplace we could purchase items closer to the date for about the cost of the rental? I have suggested his just wearing dress pants and a button-down with a tie so that we can purchase just those items but he doesn't want to do that.
I'm just kind of at a loss as how to proceed with his clothes...has anyone been in a similar situation and if so, how did you handle it?
