I suggest the men wear black vests. Matching vests can come off a little “prom-ish”.

Traditionalists will say that the men should wear a black tie. They are not props for the wedding/

I think you could bring in the brown by having the men wear a black and brown tie.

i second the colored vest.  Do a black vest and then you can do a colored tie. I like the suggestion above.  Or maybe even do pink

Your fiancé wants black Tuxedos; that’s the end of the discussion on whate colour the suits should be.  That said, I highly reccomend you both read http://www.BlackTieGuide.com

Is this a day time or evening wedding?  Day time, I am not a fan of the use of evening wear, such as Tuxedos, during the day, but still better to do it right, even if during the day.  Skip the coloured accessories, and do a classic black tie – meaning black and white, period.

I think the best combination with those dresses is navy blue suits, personally.  Every man should own at least one navy suit, anyway.

My colors are similar! Beige, chocolate brown with touches of red/burnt orange. The groomsmen will wear beige shirts, brown tie, black suit. FH will wear White shirt, beige vest, brown tie, black suit. I haven’t gone to see them in person/on them so we will see if that changes.

I think it will look great personally.  wearing a different color vest from tie will actually look very odd. This comes from my Esquire obsessed FI, a mans style type as well.

@happyheidi1984:  I would go with charcoal, or navy, not black.  A black suit has extremely limited usefulness.  If you’re renting, get whatever you want, but if you want the guys to buy, then let them buy something they can wear to other weddings, work, job interviews, etc.

@happyheidi1984:  yeah- I don’t think I could get my fiancé to wear pink either… Hahaha.  Maybe have him in all in black and white and only have the color for the groomsmen
