My bridesmaid dresses are J. Crew Navy Cotton Cady dresses in classic Navy. What color tuxes/suits should the groomsmen wear? Will black look ok? My wedding is somewhat formal and in the evening. I feel like grey would be too much of a day time look.
Plus my FI hates the color black! He doesn’t want to wear it, what should I suggest for him? Maybe he could wear something else to distinguish himself from the groomsmen?

I think black would look great, but if your FI doesn’t want to wear it, gray is a great alternative. I think it’s definitely formal enough for night – it’s what our guys will be wearing!
If they are wearing suits and it matches with your other colors, I think khaki suits would look really nice with navy blue!

If the girls are in blue, the guys could do blue or charcoal. It would look great! You can even combo colors in suit tops and pant bottoms to change the daytime/nighttime feel. What helped me is the suit/tux builder apps on some mensware websites. You can custom build your own suits or tuxes with different colors and see first hand what everything will look like. I think Davids Bridal has something like that too! Good luck!

I am doing the same dresses in the same color and all the fellas are wearing black tuxes. Personally, I think it looks lovely together, especially if there is continuity between bouquets and boutonnieres. As for your guy not wanting to wear black…I’ve got nothing. I suppose he could wear a navy tux, but that just makes me think of Father of the Bride-
What are you talking about?! Armani doesn’t do a navy tux-ADO!
Well, Armani also doesn’t do polyester…
Would your guy be willing to wear a black tux w/ white tie? Not much of a compromise, but who knows…
What about like…a charcoal gray pinstripe for him? http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/MensBrowse/Men_Shop_By_Category/suitinganddressshirts/italianwoolsuiting/PRDOVR~16855/16855.jsp’ defer=’defer
His guys could wear a lighter grey color with navy ties to make the look consistent…

I second @mizrunzou grey suits with navy ties would look very classic

@jyam: I know, I thought about a navy blue tux and I immediately thought father of the bride. HAHA!
I really like the idea of the FI being in a charcoal grey and the groomsmen being in lighter colors. Thanks for the suggestion. It’s definitely something I will try. I’m trying to picture it in my head.
