You don’t need to rationalize. The per wear cost of the suit will be next to nothing. As you have already pointed out- not so for the wedding dress.

@mightywombat: I wish we bought FI’s suit, but he’ll be renting his because he’s overweight right now and didn’t want to invest in one right now. I think it’s a good way of rewarding his weight loss, and he’ll wear it for years!!

An investment in a good suit is a good thing. Try not to think of all of the money as wedding related.

I’m so happy you bought him a suit. I don’t know why, but I really dislike when men rent suits. I can see a tuxedo- they may never wear it again, but a suit? It will get used more than once. Why have your man get married in something other people have been married in/worn to prom? Great investment.

FYI K&G Fashion Superstore has suits on sale right now- Buy 1 Get 2 free- therefore you can get 3 suits for $179.

The groom losing weight could get a suit of his own rather than rent if there are 2 others who want to go in on the deal.
