My bridesmaids are wearing navy dresses, with fuschia heels and will be caring fuschia flowers. I wanted my groomsmen to be in navy suits with a fuschia and navy striped tie similar to this one.
Now my question is, should the groom also wear a navy suit but perhaps have him in navy and white only to make it a bit diffrent then the rest? Would it look odd if the groom was in a black suit and the groomsmenn in navy?
Im so confused…I feel like Im overthinking this and if I just stop the answer will come to me lol

@VeeVee25: DH wore charcoal, the GM wore black– DH wanted to wear our wedding color as his vest so the best way to distinguis was to put him in a different colored tux. I think it will totally work for you!

@VeeVee25: Black next to navy isn’t teh best look, and black suits aren’t that good in general. A different suit on the groom would be fine, but I would suggest charcoal.
Also, test out your ties with a navy suit before a final decision – navy ties with navy suits can look good, but it’s one of those things that either works great, or doesn’t work at all. The striped one sounds like it will work.

Thanks Ladies! Apreciate your replies.
Yeah I think Black next to the Navy might be an odd combination. Might do them all in Navy but have FI vest and tie diffrent,

Odd vests are not a good idea – especially with suits. At east with “Tuxedos” it’s something people do, even if it’s not actually correct. Vests are made of the same material as the suit. Doing an odd vest is very difficult, and best left to men that are very experienced, and serious, dressers.

I would consider a shade of gray for your FI. Depending on his complexion/hair color, a light or dark gray could look great next to navy.

@VeeVee25: It’s hard to know exactly what you are asking as the title of your post mentions the Groom’s Tux, but after that you refer to suits.
Are the men wearing tuxedos or suits?
Either way they will look much better wearing the vest the matches the tuxedo or suit. You can bring in color with their ties (patterned not solid) and/or boutonnieres.
