costs of being a groomsman [Page 1 of 2]

In addition to your long list of groomsman duties, you should know that there will also be some financial obligations. Some of these expenses you'll have control over, and others you'll just have to cough up at the bride and groom's behest.   One thing's for sure; the minute the groom announces that he and his fiancée will be getting hitched in the Himalayas, in the Spring of next year, you better start saving.  

The following is a breakdown of potential costs you might encounter throughout this process. Once you research each item in depth as it pertains to you and this wedding, you can begin to come up with an estimated total cost.   Leave yourself a small buffer beyond this estimate just in case something else comes up at the last-minute. (And it will!)

Your (Tux?) Rental

The first thing you'll need to do before renting your tux is to find out from the groom or best man if this is going to be a tux-type affair. More casual weddings (in a backyard, on the beach) call for corresponding dress.

GroomGroove.com has heard of weddings for which each Groomsman was asked to dress as a member of Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and even a wedding for which all attendants were asked to dress for a masquerade ball.   Regardless of what you may think of the bride and groom's theme, roll with it. If you're totally clueless, consult other groomsmen as to where they plan to get their getup, and follow suit. (No pun intended!)

If the groom says to go classic, (and this is the norm), the next question is: will the groomsmen be coordinating their attire?   Most tuxedo rental services offer special rates for package deals and this will also ensure that everyone is visually uniform.

The cost of tuxedo rental greatly varies, depending on the tone of the wedding. If, for some reason, the groomsmen are not all renting from the same company, make sure you're not the odd man out with the cheapest-looking suit.   Research your options and try to find a rental house not too far from you to make returning painless.

Travel Expenses

If you've got a close-knit group of friends, you can only hope they don't all schedule destination weddings in the same year. Depending on how far you've got to travel, this could easily be your greatest expense as a groomsman. article continues...

What about groomsmen gifts? When I got married I gave personalized "capcatchers" to my groomsmen and best man (and father of the bride). About $ 30 bucks apiece... Dudes loved em - Shouldn't you put groomsmen gifts in this category? Bill PS If you don't know what a capcatcher is, go to www.capcatchers.com
