My little brother is one of my fiance’s groomsman, which is great. The plan (if I can find it) is to have all of the guys in grey 3-piece suits with teal ties and peacock feather boutinnieres. (Our wedding colors are teal, burnt orange, and cobalt blue.) My brother is a former Marine and wants to wear his dress blues for the wedding. He would also be okay with wearing a suit like the rest of the guys, but I get the feeling it would mean a lot to him to wear his uniform. However, I worry that he’ll look terribly out of place with the rest of the guys. What do you all think?
Thanks in advance!

I don’t think it would look out of place, but I agree that it would probably mean a lot to your brother. No, it wouldn’t be matchy-matchy, but I think grey suits will look great with the marine dress uniform (it’s the navy/blue one, right?)
In a quick search, I didn’t find examples that would be with your specific colors, but I thought this group of groomsmen looked really great & would give some idea of how it would look to have dress uniforms with regular suits.
