    Their way there and responsible for tux rental. I guess also any costs associated with the bachelor party? Oh and obviously lodging if necessary.

    As far as Australian wedding etiquette goes the B&G are supposed to pay for both the GM’s and the BM’s attire and accessories (if something specific is required).

    They are responsible for providing their attire and shoes, whether purchased or rented. (In America, at least.)

    I think whatever you decide for the bms you should do the same for gms. For us that was paying for everything.

    @Pokemon:  

     

    Our groomsmen are buying all of their own suits from Jcrew, Irish Ludlow Linen Suits with vests.  We specifically picked suits that can be investment pieces, suiting they can wear again, so they paid for all of their own stuff. My groom is doing a “groom’s gift” to them and purchasing their ties.

    IMO: They are to pay for everything.. FH’s guys are paying for everything, but wearing a nice pair of black DRESS shoes that they already own (we’re not being shoe picky)

    @Woodstock:  Just an idea? If your guys are into buying suits go to Mens Warehouse when they are having buy 1 get 2 free! Than they can split the price and soften the blow on the wallet 🙂

    @Pokemon:  Buy the B&G a copy of Ita Buttroses book on Australian Etiquette and gift it to them. Tongue Out

    Ugh, so I was under the impression that the gm were to pay for their own tux – my brothers are both in the party and are paying for theirs, and we covered the deposit and got the cheapest tux (which was black when I wanted gray but I was trying to be nice), so if they don’t need shoes it will be 56 dollars on their part.

    My FI’s brother and cousin go to get fitted and they act like they shouldn’t have to pay for their tuxes, or they don’t expect to.  My bm paid for dresses and shoes, which comes up to way more than 56 dollars!! I was so so mad, I’m on the verge of just telling them they either pay or don’t be in the wedding.  Fiance says we’ll just pay (and I know, its only 56 plus 20 for shoes, but that’s not the point.  We already got them a gift.)  I refuse to calculate this into my budget, because I’m being stubborn.
