Groom

groomsmen

Are you wearing an ivory dress? Is that where he is getting the ivory? He might seem a bit diconnected from the wedding party otherwise. He could always wear a boutonniere with some purple.

As far as the Dads are concermed, normally they wouldn’t be dressed more formally than the wedding party. Could they not wear suits also?

What color dresses are the bridesmaids wearing?

Is there a reason your FI is set on a different colored suit?  I agree with @julies1949: it almost seems like it’s too different.

And if the wedding party is in suits, the dads should be as well, I think.  It seems like it would look a little off to me in photos and as a guest.

Good luck!

i think it would look nice.  i like when the groom is set apart – he should be matching you, not the bridal party.  after all, you look far different from the bridesmaids!  i say let him do what he wants

I think it will look great! I’m doing almost the same thing. My fiance will be in a dark gray tux and our groomsmen will be in black. I love that my fiance will stand out with more than just his vest color!
