    I don’t think there should be a problem – they are expected to rent a tux so as long as you can find suits for a similar price to a rental I think you are golden!

    Yes, but I think you have to be receptive of what your Fiance wants. if he is fine with it… then go for it!

    I’d certainly ask them if they have their own grey suits. You’d be surprised just how popular a suit colour it is nowadays. But I don’t think it’s unreasonable. And they can always wear the suit again. I don’t see the harm in asking the Groomsmen to wear a specific colour suit.

    @Kitty I would love to do the same thing…let me know if you find any deals out there!!

    Question, if you have the GMs wear grey suits, will your Fiance wear the same one?  How will he be distinct?

    We definitely want my Fiance to wear grey, and we were struggling with what to have the GMs wear!

    Ah, that’s a troubling one then missus! Personally I would have no problem saying “hey, you mind emailing me a picture of your suit?” cause if I don’t know them by now and they’re in the bridal party chances are I won’t see them much after the wedding! What FH and I did was I gave FH very specific questions to ask his Bridesmaid or Best Man – but we’re only having 1 attendant each so it was much easier for us. FH’s Bridesmaid or Best Man just went “oh yeah, I need to get a new suit. Mind if I get a dark colour?”. 

    Hmm….. they must have an old photo of them in a suit somewhere on Facebook or something 🙂 Get your sleuthing skills out girl! Good luck 😉

    I thought you could also rent suits from some tux places?  Maybe that is an option.

    My fiance and I have agreed that the men in the wedding party will be in grey. (The women have been instructed to find their own purple dresses, so they’ll be mismatched.) To save my own sanity, I have left the specifics of the men’s attire up to my fiance. He’s metro enough that I know his dudes won’t show up in grey sweatsuits. But I need something about this wedding that’s 100% not my responsibility. I think he’s probably going to end up going with suits, but coordinating the purchase/rental of clothing is on his to-do list.

    @ Kitty – That sounds very nice!  I like the idea of him in a classic black to stand out.

    Fiance wants grey, and wants to stand out…so we thought about having the GMs in all black with Grey tie and same bouts…but then we also are considering everyone in grey.

    @redherring – I’m loving your color choices 🙂  My BMs are wearing purple/pewter dresses!

    @mizrunzou – We’re having our guys wear suits, but Fiance will be the only one wearing a three piece, which should make him stand out. We’ve also considered different colored ties!

    @Ottawa — now, that’s an idea!  Question, are they the exact same suit minus the vest?  Where are you getting them?
