    @MissOct2013:  $120 isn’t that expensive for a tux these days. I’d just say this is what you are doing and that’s final. It’s your wedding. 

    You can give some money towards it as part of a groomsmen gift if you wanted to though.

    $120 is reasonable in my book. What do the other GMs think? If everyone thinks it’s too expensive I might consider changing them. If it’s just FFIL I wouldn’t.

    Ouch, harsh of your FIL…. You are in charge of your wedding, especially if you’re paying, but regardless YOUR the bride… Definitely go for what your prefer! If it is a huge issue, maybe DH could chip-in for part of it? I know that’s annoying, but do what it takes to have the wedding you were planning to have, $120 tuxes and all ( and that isn’t even super expensive for tux rentals)

    120 in cheap in most places for a tux. Go with the ones you want, it’s your wedding!

    Eh, I’d say for a 10 year old, go cheaper. For the rest of the adult men, use the expensive place.

    In what world is $120 a lot of money?  Just sty with the plan that’s in place.

    For the 10 year old, I might even consider just buying one. You can get them a lot cheaper than $120., and for one day? Look around. He can even turn it into a Halloween costume afterwards. 🙂

    My FI just spent over $200 for a tux rental for his sister’s wedding. So that’s the only reference point I have; I don’t know anything about tux pricing for kids, but $120 doesn’t sound too unreasonable. If it’s something you feel very strongly about, would it be possible for you and your SO to help with the cost for his attire? Perhaps mention splitting the cost with your future FIL. I also like the PP who mentioned purchasing a tux. That’s what we plan to do after shelling out money on ill-fitted rentals in the past (we have a fairly limited selection where I live). Personally, I think anyone under the age of 15 usually looks super cute in formal wear regarless of the quality.
