I have a question for anyone who can offer their insight... My wedding is not black tie but it will be more formal as opposed to casual. 300ish is the guest count. My fiancé wants to wear a suit instead of a tux but I don't want him to look like a guest. Is there a rule for etiquette? Jos. a Banks is doing their speal about buying 1 suit - get 2 for free. This would be groom's gift to the groomsmen, which is the suit to keep afterwards. (It estimates to be $165 per suit). He has a dad and a step dad. He said we'd get a suit for my dad to match the groomsmen cuz he's walking me down the aisle but not for his dads. I want the pictures to flow together and I don't want people to think we didn't care enough about his dads. So I think they should all be dressed the same. My mom and I have worked really hard to make this a "classy" affair and I feel like a suit would dress it down. Maybe I'm wrong. It appears that the groom's family has already made their decision because this is their expense... Do I have a right to request they wear tuxes or should I go with the flow?
