    I think it will be fine, honestly. We have Navy bridesmaid dressed (DB Marine) and our photographer HIGHLY recommended a charcoal so we went with that but we wanted suits originally anyway. I think Black will be fine. 🙂

    I’m fairly certain classic black tuxes go with everything.

    Don’t see a problem with it.  I think it will look great!  Black and Navy won’t clash.

    You could have the groomsmen wear charcoal suits and the groom can wear a black tux. That way he can stand out, he gets to wear what he wants, and the guys wear what you want. I think either would look fine with navy dresses

    annb9:  Too funny!  I was just thinking about this the other day.  Our colors are emerald green and navy blue, and my bridesmaids are wearing green dresses.  I too wanted FI to wear a grey suit/tux, but he’s dead set on a black tux with a navy tie or vest.  

    I personally think grey compliments navy blue better than black, but I don’t think they clash either.  In the end, it doesn’t really matter.  It’s not like he had a say in what shade of white to get for my dress.

    Black and navy is a very elegant combination. The men could also wear a midnight blue tux.

    black and navy

    Black is a nuetral color for a reason-it will look fine with the navy. I was in a wedding where the BM wore brown and the GM wore black…it didn’t look that bad! So if that looked ok then navy and black will be great! lol

    I really dislike navy and black together, but depending on your wedding style and season it could look nice. You know that you can get charcoal tuxes right?

    I HATE black and navy together and was sure that I wouldn’t want to have the guys in black because the girls are wearing navy. Then we went to look at tuxes and I wore a navy blue dress similar to what BM dresses are and it actually looked really nice, plus FI was dead set on wearing black. I think it looks really nice and formal and doesn’t clash because it’s being worn by two different people.

    I think charcoal looks much better than black with navy. It’s not a huge issue or eyesore if he has to have black but from the pictures I’ve seen charcoal looks a lot better.
