My wedding is going to be in Spain. All of the groomsmen are from Spain. They were explained more or less what a bridesmaid and groomsmen are but it is not a custom that Spanish people have. The girls and I just picked out bridesmaids dresses this past weekend.. so of course we started in more detail, the discussion of the colors of what guys are going to wear.
We have previously talked about this but I didn't realize until now that my hubby to be is very uncomfortable asking them to spend money renting a tux or renting/buying a suit. I guess he has mentioned it before and two of them, who are students, were not too fond of the idea.
Part of the problem is, that it may be hard to find a rental place in the city that we will be marrying. Now I don't know what to do. All the girls are going to look cohesive and the guys aren't going to match. I know we can do the same color shirt and/or ties but will it look atrocious if the colors of the suits aren't matching?
I do completely understand the concern about asking them to pay for this when it is not something that they are used to and the Spanish economy right now isn't the best. So another solution I thought of is for us to pay for their rentals or the suits, but my FI doesn't think it is that important for the extra expense.
Any advice or thoughts are appreciated.
