    I voted gray but that’s tough because both look nice. Depends on what kind of look you want. Black tuxedo’s are more formal to me than gray suits. Also can depend on the time of day of your ceremony.

    I love gray suits with for blush/dusty color palettes! Gray suits are also a little less formal IMO so I feel like that might be an important thing to consider.

    If it’s a barn then I stand by my original vote of gray!

    I love the grey, and I’m also getting married in a converted barn, we’re going with grey/deep red/ivory as our colours so I was partial to the grey 🙂 My FI mentioned he just feels a lot more relaxed in the grey, versus the stark black tux he tried.

    Are we talking about a morning suit, dinner suit, or lounge suit?

    In fact, in the country, the sartorial tradition would allow for brown, or tweed, if the ceremony is informal enough.

    Unsolicited advice: I do not reccomend a cravat with lounge; a four in hand tie is best, and a bow tie is fine if that’s the groom’s cup of tea.  Not a black satin bow tiie, of course.  Of course, if he/you are determined to buck tradition and prefer a cravat with lounge, I am reasonably certain that no laws exist against it.
