@Rosegold:  I recommend charcoal grey tuxes or suits, with a matching grey vest for the tuxes. Using a vest that matches the BM’s dresses can look a little “prom-ish”.

Wearing a tie and boutonniere in the wedding colors is enough for the men.

Your dress is formal and traditional; his clothing should be, too.  Black tuxedo, white shirt, black bow tie, either a black vest or cumberbund.  His bouttoniere should match the flowers in your boquet, but that is the only color he needs.

Here is a great guide (that isn’t trying to sell you anything!)  http://www.blacktieguide.com/

@Rosegold:  What time is your wedding?  Where is it?  What overall level of formality do you want?

Since your dress is pretty ivory, you don’t want to look dingy next to an all white hubby. However, ivory shirts look dingy too, and they aren’t fashionable (they don’t exist anywhere except in the wedding industry).  Grey and ivory don’t go together well either, so I’d suggest a black tux with a white shirt so he still has the sharp look of a tux, and an ivory vest and tie to match you.  You want the GM to go with the BM, but I agree that colored vests are totally prom-ish.  I’d put them in a black tux with a white shirt, black vest, and a blush tie.  If you want them to have a mismatched look like the bridesmaids maybe they can all buy a different blush colored tie.

@mgbser:  White shirts do not make ivory dresses look dingy.  This is a myth.  Especially if there is a jacket.
