I wasn’t picky and just gave our groomsmen some specific guidelines.  Then they could pick out their own suit and I didn’t have to feel guilty for ‘forcing’ them to buy a $300 ensemble.  Most of them ended up buying the suits I had sent them links to at JCrew and Express.  They all looked great, and it turned out really cute that their suits (vest & slacks) didn’t match perfect.

We are renting tuxes from Men’s Wharehouse for $99. My brother is in 3 weeddings this year and his most expensive tux rental was $159 so I think $300 is a Very high estimate for a rental.

Do the guys wear suits ever? If you can assume they already own white button up shirts, I would look at macys.com sale section. Often they have nice suits on clearance for under $200. Alternatively, overstock.com tends to have a selection of suits under $200 but they don’s thave the benefit of a store. You could of course go into Macy’s and see what hey have in store and if they don’t have 6 of what you want maybe they can get them from other stores or online. If you are open, I think you will easily be able to find suits for purchase under $200 which will only be slightly more than rental. You could even buy the guys’ ties as part of their gift.

I know that about twice a year Men’s Warehouse does a buy one get one free on suits! You can then have 2 groomsmen split the price of that and it wouldn’t be that pricey. PLUS they would be able to keep the suit!
