IMO, the tux is your FI’s decision.  Him and his friends/brothers/etc. are the ones who have to wear it.  My Fiance picked everything himself with no input from me.

I think it would be fine to do black or dark brown.

I’d let him have this one.  In my wedding plans, this is the one aspect  that I’ve allowed my FI to have complete creative control over lol.  It was a struggle, but in the end it worked out fine.  He picked something I was very pleased with.  In your case he is going against what you like but it still sounds like it will look really nice.

My Darling Husband and his Bridesmaid or Best Man both wore black tuxes for our July wedding.  It’s not heavy as much as formal.  I think since he is the one wearing it, you should let him have his way.  A lot of grooms choose their attire for the wedding, and if he isn’t demanding anything else, it’s nice to let him plan something.

Let him pick within reason (ie, no top hat, etc). I think saying no black or dark colors is a little bit out of reason on your part.  What about a compromise of a charcol?
