    I’m trying to look at it this way. If I was asked to be say…the guest book attendant, I wouldn’t want to have to pay money for a bridesmaids dress.

    Are you sure they don’t own a suit? What would they wear if they were just guests at your wedding?

    Maybe you should talk to them. Perhaps they do have suits. Or can borrow one from somebody…

    No I don’t think its wrong of you, itsyour decision- nobody has the RIGHT to stand up in your wedding.. except you’re mistaken about cost. We’ve found its about the same price to buy a suit from somewhere like mens warehouse that have buy one get one sales than it is to rent tuxes, and you get to keep them. They have inexpensive tuxes too!

    @sparkles_10: I’ve seen it done many different ways. But if the ushers are family members, they usually rent a tux. If not, then they either wear a tux or a suit. It depends on what you want to do. But since this guy is already complaining about tux rental (which is ridiculously expensive anyway) I would let him wear a suit. If he doesn’t have a suit, you could tell him to wear something nice, but I think the least he could do was wear a suit. He won’t be standing there, so it’s not a big deal for him to wear something different IMO.

    I have usually seen the ushers wear tuxes (and, sometimes, they stand up with the wedding party, but behind the groomsmen…if that makes sense).  I would have done the same thing.
