tuxes?

Hi everyone.I'm wondering what my responsibility is in picking out the tuxes for the groomsmen. Should FI do that? How far in advance should they pick a style and get measured if they are just renting.Wedding is 5 mos away, but he hasn't even asked all his groomsmen to be in WP yet!TIA!

    I just did this yesterday at men's wearhouse.In my case, FI didn't care. he liked the vest I picked and the colors, so we went with it. If he hadn't, we'd have picked something else.I'd pick what you want and show him. That's just me. In general from what I've heard, men tend to think a tux is a tux and not really care. He should probably ask people to be in his wedding party asap.

    Your FI Should ask is groomsmen to take part asap. You don't need to be measure for 2-3 months out but at least let them know that they will need to rent one.

    I think it's probably best if your FI or you and your FI go to pick out the tuxes. I just imagine a group of guys going and coming out with something crazy! Maybe I am just thinking of the disaster that would happen if FI's friends got say in it, haha.We went together and FI first looked at the different tux options and picked one. Then he tried on a bunch of different vests/ties and we picked what we liked best for him, then for the GM, and then for our dads. The GM don't have to get measured until the month of, although the girl at the store recommended telling them a little bit earlier than that if we have guys who tend to be late (which we do), so that's what we're doing.He should probably ask his GM soon, just in case any of them need to save up for it.

    Fi and I went together.  He wanted me to pick out the colors because he said if I let him he would pick crazy colors..LOL..at least he was honest!You can go at any time to pick them out.   I would give the GM as much time as possible, and try to get them to go early!  I was hounding guys until the very last minute to go get measured and it was a pain in the neck!I agree with the others, your Fi should get to asking his GM pretty quick.

    i think your FI should certainly have a say, but might not (will likely not) care that much.  my DH is very into suits since he wears on everyday for work, so he certainly wanted a say in what he wore on our wedding day.  we went together and picked for him and the entire BP.  my dad was given the option to wear anything he liked.  he chose to wear same as the BP but in traditional black/white, no color vest.
