    2 and 3 are bit too matchy prom style to me. I think 1 or 4 are your best options.

    I really like 2 & 3. I don’t think it’s too matchy. I really like the black with the apple color.

    Do not match to the bridesmaids. It turns grown men into accessories.

    Use a vest that matches the suit (black or grey) and a tie with a red accent on it (like a red stripe) to avoid that prom-y look but still be coherent.

    @inky_1:  I’d say grey suit with GREY vest, but red long tie.  I’m not a fan of the matchy-matchy prom vest color.  But I do love the grey suit with the pop of color tie!  So I didn’t vote.

    Grey or black suit with matching grey or black  vest, if FI wants a vest.

    Matching vests look like prom night.

    Add a striped or paisley tie with the red in it.

    Personally? #1 is my answer by a long shot. I also really like what PP suggested of swapping out the red vest for the matching gray vest and leaving only a red tie. (But… I’m baised, as that’s what I did 🙂 )

    @inky_1:  I voted 1 as well…love the grey! Also, what is the brand of the BM dresses?? I love them! We just chose red as our color, and I’m looking for something that color!

    @Duncan:  +1.

    Since you’re not doing formal tuxes, why not go fun and do the grey (without that burgundy). Don’t do #4, IMO a black notch lapel tux is a waste of a tux.

    I voted for 1.
    2 and 3 are too matchy matchy. 4 looks too formal for your setting and time of wedding.

    I do love your dress and BM dresses!

    #1 but get a vest to match the tux, IMO.
