The dresses are not super formal and a tux is, well, formal.  That said, I think it would be ok.  If you do a grey tux it would be even better as it would go great with those colors.  If he is set on wearing a black tux he should get it, it’s his wedding too.  That is my humble opinion.  Either way you will all look great.

I see that your fiance was thinking of a black tux, have you considered a gray tux?  Men’s Wearhouse now has two gray tuxes, one of them is an awesome style by Vera Wang, and they would match your BM dresses really well.  I find that gray doesn’t seem so formal.

I think a tux might be too dressy for the BM dresses and for outside…

I think a tux is totally fine personally. Maybe do a regular tie instead of the bow tie?

What if your fiance wore a bow tie, but the others wore a regular tie? It allows him to get what he wants and stand out, but dresses down the others.

Can’t your FI wear a black tux and have the groomsmen wear something less formal (ie suit or shirt and tie)? I don’t think it’d look bad because it makes sense for the groom to be more formal than the rest, especially if you are wearing a fancy wedding dress.
