Congrats on your upcoming wedding and best wishes.
A bit more information would be helpful here. For example, what is your budget per suit? It sounds like you are looking to buy or have everyone buy a suit.
I'd also note that there is no reason why everyone needs to be in the same suit. As long as everyone looks nice and there are not clashing outfits (which there should not be), you should be fine. Most elegant wedding parties historically did not all wear the same exact outfit. You may be thinking of having everyone in the same suit with different accessories, but it's hard to tell from your short post. The idea that wedding parties have to match is really an invention of the rental tux industry, which makes a lot more money when everyone has to rent a tux vs. letting people who own tuxes wear the one they have already. That said, I don't know your exact circumstances. Perhaps the bride wants everything to match and that's not worth the fight from your perspective as long as everyone looks nice. I really have no idea. I just think we'd be wrong to not at least let you know that perfectly matching wedding parties are not the most elegant way to go.
Whatever you end up doing, best wishes and congrats again. If you could give us some more details on what you're looking to spend and what type of suit if any you have in mind, that will help you get better recommendations.
