I don’t have any pictures, but I think the groom in a navy suit and the groomsmen in grey vests would look awesome.

LadyPeacockk:  I think grey pants. If your FI was in black it wouldn’t matter but with him in navy, keep the gm in all one colour

The others in suits are wedding participants but NOT actually groomsmen…

Here is my boy and his boys in navy! He went for a black tie and they had pale pink!

My groom wanted to pick the GM’s outfits and his own. He wore navy and they were in grey with ties to match the BM’s. He considered no jackets but eventually decided he wanted the jacket option and they could remove the jackets whenever they wanted, which they did for the reception and some casual/funny pics later in the day.

@LadyPeacockk the ties are actually fleur de lis (NOLA wedding). Vests are a dark blue herringbone from J Crew, husband is in a dark blue seersucker (but looks pinstripe-ish bc of color) from Jos A Bank.

LadyPeacockk:  thanks I think they cleaned up pretty well 🙂 have you googled groomsmen in vests? I really liked that idea but am happy with what they ended up wearing. There are a lot of ideas online and the darker combos like charcoal often still look pretty formal. A lot of pics had the groom in a jacket and just groomsmen in vests from what I saw but either would look good. I saved a few examples to show my groom when we were looking and I really liked this one.

LadyPeacockk:  I completely get that. We get to look different from the BM’s I like when the groom gets to stand out too.

catgirl:  were your bms in blue too?  Do you have any pictures of them with the guys in blue? My girls are wearing blue and my fi is still looking at suit ideas 🙂

I’m putting my fiance in a JCrew solid navy seersucker suit and his brother in whatever navy blazer/khaki pants he owns.  There are lots of photos of that arrangement online.  It might give you an idea of a contrasting groom/groomsmen.  I’m getting married in hot weather and vests fit a little too close to the body for 80 degrees imho.  I want my groom to be comfy.
