Does he not get that bridesmaids buy dresses and spend money in the wedding?  I’m sorry, but his expectation of his Groomsmen not spending money is not realistic.

we had an issue with this too–we had our gms in black suits, and one gm asked if he could wear a pin-stripe suit. ummm, no, not so much…luckily though hubby was on the same side as me and it ended up not being an issue. it sounds like your fi isn’t on the same page as you though– if your fi isn’t happy with the formality of your wedding, maybe there’s something else you can compromise with him about?

Men are so annoying. Baha! I honestly would tell my Fiance that there has to be a compromise. Either the 1) Groomsmen buys a black suit 2) y’all buy a black suit for him, or 3) Groomsmen wears a blue pinstripe suit. I mean, who wants to have ONE random person wearing something different? I can understand multiple different colors, but one? Just keep talking to him and tell him this is important to you. I didn’t think drama started around GMs… but apparently they are just like BMs. 🙂

What if you and the Groomsmen split the price for a black suit?

Tell him to rent a suite…you can do that at Men’s warehouse and stores like that. Then everybody looks the same and Groomsmen saves some money. Everybody wins!
