As well as hiring the suit (jacket trousers and waistcoat) do we buy them their shirt, tie and shoes also?

We are buying all the clothes apart from the shoes. Most lads will have black shoes but they have been warned to make sure they are clean >:o( We are getting each of the groomsmen personalised Cuff Links also as a little gift for them on the day

Hi bubblybride2010 If you want them all looking the same you should hire the shirt and waistcoat. Most lads will have a pair of black shoes so you’ll be ok on that one. It looks good having the lads all in the same and maybe have the groom in a different tie/cravat or waistcoat.
