    @MrsFox13:  my colors are navy and lavender.

    BMs – navy dresses

    GMs – black tuxes with lavender vest/bowtie

    BRIDE – white dress

    GROOM – black tux with white vest/bowtie (so he stands apart from the GM)

     

    i think black tuxes will work fine. can you match the BM’s dress color for the groomsman’s vests, groom should wear white accessories.

    Black will be fine.

    My girls wore navy dresses and the guys wore black tuxes

    @MrsFox13:  I think a darker charcoal grey would look awesome on him

    Do the groomsmen have to match?

    Ours aren’t and I actually like it so much better. Being all matchy-matchy is way too prom for my taste. Just have your FI wear the traditional black tux like he wants and coordinate his groomsmen to what he’s wearing.

    Example: Groom- black tux, white shirt, white vest, white bow tie/regular tie. Groomsmen – black tux, white shirt, black vest, black bow tie/regular tie

    I put my groomsmen in black tuxes with black vests (ties coordinating somewhat with BM dresses) and my husband wore a black tux with a white vest and white tie. It’s classic and it goes with everything, if you need a fallback. 🙂

    Have you seen the charcoal Vera Wang Tuxes at Mens Warehouse? We used them and I thought they were very flattering on the guys. Our colors were gray and yellow, so we just did yellow bouts for the guys to tie in the colors.

    @MrsFox13:  No, I don’t think it would wash him out at all!

    Is his coloring sort of like this?:

    I voted for black only because you stated that’s what he really wanted to wear, but if he’s not that set on it, I think charcoal suits would look great.
