We're renting, to answer your quesiton. A lot of people will buy if it's suits, and rent if it's morning suit/black tie, etc, etc.

[/quote:10x16jdt] Not necessarily! You can do what you want! If your going for more casual, you could buy them all matching ties...or something else. Buying suits for everyone would certinaly mess with your budget!

without even saying anything the GM said they would buy their own suits - which i thought was really lovely.... but then it limits me to a not dressy suit, h2b doesnt have to wear the same - that doesnt bother us... just wondering who bought and where and what you bought and who rented, whre and what you rented... *) :o)ll *)

Hubby bought his ( a Rebus suit) which was lovely as it had tiny burgungy and bronze pinstripes which matched my bouquet and the BM dresses which were bronze. We bought the other 2 suits but we were real cheapskates and bought plain black suits for £60 each from Matalan!!! Nobody was any the wiser and as they are never going to wear them again ( neither are suit people and only wear them at weddings and funerals!!) we didn't want to spend a fortune on them.
