Just a fun poll to see what your H2B's are going for... My H2B is going for tails

i'm interested to see what others are doing here too. H2B thought that he would just hire morning suits/tails but at the weekend he was saying that he thinks he might prefer to get a really nice tailored suit (Louis Copeland or similar) that he'll have for a long time but wondered what to do about his best man, groomsman and our dads cos we would like to have the rest of the bridal party in matching suits. In fairness, i think he has a good point - we think nothing of spending over a grand (or more) on a fancy guna and all he gets is a hired suit

He might as well go all out, shur he'd always have it. My H2B was thinking the very same about buying his own suit too!

So his rig out is almost costing as much as my dress! Although when you add on my shoes and accessories I'm still miles ahead!!!

We are having a black-tie wedding and H2B and Bestman etc are all wearing their own tuxedos. It worked out really well as we did not need to buy a new suit or hire anything or worry about what the bridal party would wear. Just got him a new ivory bow-tie so he would stand out.

Mine is wearing a kilt so I voted other. The best man is wearing his own suit {don't know colour} and grooms dad is the same and my dad is wearing a black tux belonging to my BIL.
