    It’s Fine. If he’s not wearing a suit under direction of the bride/groom there’s no reason he should feel underdressed.

    I definitely think you could find a suit on short notice, though I don’t know if it’s necessary. Maybe mention to him that some other guests will be wearing suits, and ask if he will feel underdressed? They have reasonable suits at JCPenny or Kohls that you can buy right off the rack, so I don’t think it should be a problem if you decide to go that route. I know my brother’s in high school bought suits at the thrift store (crazy, I know!), and you never would have been able to tell the difference. You could always just get him a navy jacket & have him wear khaki trousers & a white button down w/ a coordinating tie if you’re really that laid back about attire. It’d be a breeze to just find a jacket.

    I think he will be just fine. Most men who wear suits will remove the jacket as soon as the ceremony is over, anyhow.

    If you are truly second guessing yourself, you could gift  him a vest that is the same dark blue of the bridemaids’ dresses. That would go well with blue or grey pants.
