I decided to have him wear the same tux and have same color flower as the rest of the guys. My FI also has a groomswoman and she is wearing the same thing as my girls. I don’t have any pictures yet and I also was concerned about him being mistaken for a groomsman, but he is standing on my side and during introductions will be introduced as the man of honor so that should clear things right up.

BurlapnLace:  post a picture of colour for reference.  Perhaps someone can help you find a shirt.

BurlapnLace:  I think he should be dressed in the same level of formality as the other men, so that would rule out a “no jacket” look.

Even if you found a guava formal shirt, he would look like  a magician or other entertainer. No one outside of show business wears colored formal shirts in North America.

The groomsmen, ushers and fathers were in regular “classic” black and white tuxes. my brides-man had a bowtie that matched the bridesmaids dresses, and the groomswoman had a black dress that looked like, but wasnt exactly the same as, the bridesmaid’s dresses. So, it was subtle, but it made them stand out a little while still looking like part of the group. the flowers were all the same color, the groomswoman had a pinned corsage instead of a bouquet. 

*they are both on the left side of this picture

Hope this is helpful!

BurlapnLace:  My bridesman wore the same as the GM, people knew he wasn’t a GM because he stood on my side during the ceremony!

I forgot to add that even though it will also send some Bees into apoplexy, he could wear a long tie instead of a bow tie. It’s easy to find ties that have some of the color you need, whether that is a stripe or other pattern.

BurlapnLace:  I still think if the other guys are wearing a tux, he should too. A shirt and pants outfit isn’t nearly as formal.

I’m assuming that the men are wearing white shirts. I would have him wear the same.

If the men are wearing long ties, a  bow tie will be enough to distinguish him from the others.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I will say that I am not a fan of colored vests. I think they look a little too 80’s prom-ish, but if that’s what the two of you want, so be it.

Not quite the same thing, but we had a Best Lady. Perhaps you will get some inspiration from this:

 

Perhaps you can put him in a tuxedo but have him wear a bowtie or tie the same color as the bridesmaids dresses. We put the Best Lady in the same dress as the bridesmaids but in black.
