    Was he made a groomsman before or after he asked?

    @mailingis:  If he asked before he was in the Wedding party yes that is very rude.  You can hardly hire a suit for everyone attending your Wedding.

    @mailingis:  On this statement yes it’s rude.  If you had asked him to be one of the groomsman and THEN he asked I would have said UK-style no it’s not that rude.

    I am from the UK and I don’t understand the problem here…

    – He’s a groomsman, therefore you should have offered to pay for his suit.

    – He’s a teenager, and therefore you should have expected that you would have to pay.

    The answer to your question is as follows:

    – Was is rude for him to call and ask? Possibly.

    – Was it rude for you not to offer immediately? Yes.

    EDIT: Just seen that he was not in the bridal party before he asked. That’s not so much rude as just… really weird. But at least he’s in the bridal party now, so you’ve sort of resolved the issue. Kind of strange that he would ask when he wasn’t part of the bridal party. Did you suggest a rather unusual dress code, or something, which would mean that he could not have been expected to own the correct attire?
