Yesterday a friend asked me to be a groomsman for his wedding next year. I've never been a groomsman, nor been invited to any weddings. I said sure and am honored to be one. But I have to wonder, how much am I going to be out of pocket for everything all said and done? Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like the following: --Gift for wedding shower (~$50) --Gift at wedding (~$50, in addition to wedding shower? ) --Tux rental (~$75-$200?) --Bachelor party ($$$, if he has one)? Google tells me the groomsmen apparently foot the bill for the entire bachelor party, and split it, is this true? Curious, besides the groomsmen and the groom, do other people go to the bachelor party? It would be one thing if it were just the groomsmen and the groom, but it could get expensive quick if a bunch of other people go at the groomsmens' expense IMO. I'm honored to be a groomsman, and I do have the money, but I'm not really excited to spend upwards of $1,000 (assuming a bachelor party is had). What can I expect to spend, what is the etiquette here? Is there anything else I'm missing in my bullet point list above or is that pretty inclusive of everything that goes with a full-on wedding?
