I think with that dress, he will look significantly underdressed standing next to you!  Personally, I believe the groom should wear a suit for the wedding, or dress pants at the very, very least. 

I have never, ever been to a wedding where the groom wore jeans.  I recently went to one where the groom wore cargo shorts, and honestly, there was a lot of snickering going on during the reception about his under-dressed attire from his guests (his family and friends included).

I think he can do pants for such a special day.  Your dress will make him look severely underdressed…

What about breaking it up with a striped shirt in black?

I don’t have any pictures online of my cousin’s wedding, but at their wedding all of the guys from the groom down to the ring bearer had on black wrangler jeans. In all of the pictures and stuff you couldn’t tell that they were wearing jeans instead of dress pants.

What’s wrong with black on black? 

Yes, he will look super underdressed standing next to you in that beautiful gown.  PS: SO pretty!!! 

He will also look underdressed in a vest without a jacket.  If you want him to look as dressed as you, his options are:

-Tux

-Suit

-Button up in black, white, or grey (you said he doesn’t ‘do’ color).

I highly recommend getting a very lightweight suit.  My FI has suits in every weight- he has some so light that he says it’s as comfortable as wearing a polo.

Black pants and shirt will never be the same fabric because shirts are different than pants. We did black pants with white shirts and FI wore a black vest for our wedding and its defiently not a suit but it is much dressier than Jeans. I think if jeans fit with your theme and your dress was different it might work. As a guest Id be asking what the joke was if I saw you in your amazing dress and your FI in jeans.
