    I think it’s perfectly acceptable to have the men not wearing jackets, especially since you’re wearing a knee length dress, which I think gives a little more casual vibe. If you want the groom to, he could wear a jacket so he stands out.

    I voted for the vest option, because you said you didn’t like the look of the black suits with black dresses. I think that without a jacket or vest, the GM might look a bit casual – but that might be more the vibe of your wedding?

    I’m also a fan of the groom wearing something to stand out a bit – my BIL had all his GM wear silvery-grey ties, and he wore a black one – it looked really good! The BM were in black dresses that that wedding as well. So you could always do something similar with or without a jacket or vest, maybe with a green hue tie.

    @icetea:  I definitely know what you mean about shirt and tie looking incomplete, I tend to agree. Also about men looking like boys in their suits – I think that it’s often tailoring like you said, or the style of the suit. If you’re into the vest idea, here are some inspiration pics, some where the groom is in a suit and GM in vests.

    @medbride Can you tell me where a you found the one 4 down from the top? I really like that look. I’m having a blue suit and wanted to know where this was to look at the products.

    jburkett:  I’m pretty sure I got it from Pinterest and all my wedding boards are deleted so I don’t have a good source for it. When I search google for the image I get these results – http://tinyurl.com/qhljgux – so maybe you can start there!
