Hi if your groom is hiring suits then both Fathers should be included but the Mothers buy their own :)

no, i think it is up to the parents to get their own outfits!
we paid for my dads outfit though as we had a specific tartan we wanted the main bridal party to wear!

We let all family members know the details and shop for bridal party suits if they wanted to hire them. In the end just my family did which is fine. I would say unless you want them to wear something very specific they will get their own outfits x

Only my Dad just because he's walking me down the aisle and therefore part of the wedding party (which is dad, best man and MOH). I'm not paying for anyone else.

We have 5 groomsmen (including both dads), 7 bridesmaids and a page boy. We can't afford to pay for all so we've said if they want to be a part of the bridal party they are required to pay for their dresses or suit hire themselves. But keeping that in mind we've managed to keep suit hire down to 75 quid each and I'm looking at bridesmaid dresses on Amazon for just 25 quid each so that hopefully everyone can afford to be a part of our day!

Nope.they buy what they want.if u want men in same suits u can ask them to buy same or help them out if u can afford to.it can get ridiculous with payin for everyone.

We are hiring suits for the groom, best man, my brother (usher/reading) and both dads as we want them to all wear the same and for them to feel that they are an important part of the day. A lot of places do an offer where you get free groom's hire if you hire 4 other suits, which works perfectly for us. We have also bought the bridesmaids' dresses and will buy the flower girl and page boy's outfits. Our mothers are sorting themselves (and enjoying telling the dads they can spend more on their outfits and accessories, since they don't have to pay for the mens' suits!)

We have offered to pay for my Father in law’s suit but he doesn’t want us to waste the money on him. The same with my granddad (he’s stepping in as my dads role) xx

My mum wont let me, as for siblings brought her own, but i am going to buy her new shoes, as not fair that the dads get clothed and my mum

We are but I don’t think it’s expected as they’ve offered to pay their own. I feel they’re already contributing enough financially to the wedding so it’s a nice gesture. Everyone has different budgets though so do what you think is right 🙂
