I need your help, Bees!!!
As opposed to black tuxes, my FI and his men want to wear dark grey suits. Problem is, suits are $400 and up!! We’re on a low budget and would like to buy/rent for under $200. Have any of you gone with dark grey suits as opposed to tuxes? We’ve looked at all the major retailers, as well as Jcrew, Gap, and Banana Republic. No luck. I really think that dark grey suits would look a lot nicer than black tuxes against our navy blue bridesmaid dresses, but we’re so discouraged by the insane prices!
Any help would be most appreciated!

I’m in the same boat! Our colors are grey and yellow – so all BMs and GMs will wear grey. My FI found a suit that was great at Zara – for like $260 total. The problem we have now is that his GMs live in a different city, that does not have Zara. We also looked at JCrew and BR, but they are definitely more expensive. A dark suit is versatile though, and they can wear them for a while afterwards too.

I love when men choose suits!
Would it be possible your fiance buy a suit and the other guys wear something out of their closet? (I’m assuming most end black suits- possible have them wear gray ties to tie in with the groom?)
Another option would be Macy’s or men’s warehouse- MW isn’t great quality- but they have great prices and photograph well (and sometimes they have buy one suit get one for a dicounted price)
