The rest of the wedding party rented. And if you're going to rent, generally you'll rent whatever the groom tells you to rent. I gave him advice when he was making the rental arrangements so that everyone turned out as classically correct as possible (and so that I matched them). I just bought mine because I wanted a better fit, I got good prices on all the elements of the outfit, and it was probably the one opportunity in my life where I'd have the excuse to buy white tie rig.
