I was going to suggest a tan/khaki suit, but you said the groom wants to wear a black tux…I think it would look a little odd for the guys to all wear jeans and boots then the groom wear a tux. I think he’d look a lot more formal than the other guys. Is he dead set on a wearing a tux? And on black?

It is a bit of a contrast in levels of formality to have the groom in a tux and the groomsmen in jeans, but probably no more than the bride in a wedding gown and the bridesmaids in sundresses. If the bride is in a formal dress I see no reason the groom can’t wear a tux.

The men could wear jeans, black boots and black button ups to match the color the groom is wearing. Or, they could wear jeans,black boots and vest, and a shirt that has the blue/turquoise of the BM’s dresses.

@ARegister:  I am literally in the exact same position. I am wearing a full length wedding dress, and he is DEAD set on wearing a tux. My BMs are most likely wearing denim, layered, short dresses. I want the GMs to kinda match the BMs in denim jeans and boots, and possibly vests or blazers. Will that look way to stupid? We are having just a cutsy country backyard wedding..

I vote for tan/khaki as well! I think that would match perfectly with your country theme. The groom and groomsmen can still wear tuxes, and after the pictures, they could change into “tux” t-shirt & jeans and wear boots to the reception. Just saw this idea on Pinterest so it’s fresh in my mind!
