I’d maybe stick with charcoal but skip the waistcoat and make it a less formal suit type. Or maybe a lighter grey? They can always take their jackets off and they’d still look smart with shirts and ties 🙂

I also think *some* white suits can look good if they’re done *very* well lol but they can look sharp 😉

something like this for your FI and the groomsmen can wear the same suit but without the jacket?

Mid grey, or steel blue, or mid blue are all good.  You could do glen check, or similar, perhaps.  Sartorial tradition is to use the colours of the environment to choose the colours of one’s clothing, which is why you wear blue and grey in the city, and green and brown in the coutry.  Given you’re in the lakes region, blue seems a match.  Navy would work, and the men wuold be more likely to already own navy suits.  If you want to really take the formality down, you could wear boating jackets, but that would go more with a tea lenght dress, perhaps.

Do you have photos of the region?

Mid grey, light grey, or any shade of blue.
