Jim’s Formal Wear rents out suits in black, navy, and tan. If there’s one in your area, that could be an option. Or you could have your groomsmen rent tuxes in the same color as your FH’s suit and dress them down with normal dress shirts, ties, no vests, etc.

Depending on the age and/or professions of your groomsmen, they may already have suits in a nice color. You could have your FH ask them and then request pics of them in their suits, just to make sure everyone matches. It’d also be a good way to feel out who wouldn’t mind buying a suit. Every guy usually needs at least one.

We are having my FI wear a navy suit, and the groomsmen wear navy blazers and tan dress pants. I have seen it at a few weddings and it looks very nice.  Most of the wedding party will have to buy the jackets, so I am just going to recommend that they go to the same shop were my FI and my brother have blazers from.

My FI is wearing a charcoal grey suit (gorgeous hickey freeman!), and his groomsmen all happened to have grey suits (in various shades), save one, who is renting one (we are paying for the rental).  They aren’t going to match completely, but we’ll tie it together with the same tie, and my FI will wear a tie in the same color family, but not identical.  I felt the same way about not wanting my FI in a tux (even though he owns one) because it seemed overly formal and stuffy for us, and we’re having an outdoor wedding, so this seemed like the perfect solution- think of it as mix-and-match chic!
