Sounds fine to me. But I don’t really know what is ‘proper’ and just think that everyone should do what they like!

You (the groom) can do whatever you wish.  I think it’d look great, and differentiate you from the guys.

Definitely! My husband did exactly that. Mind you he wears a suit every day for work, so he wanted to feel a little different on our wedding day. He wore a 3 piece, the two groomsmen wore a two piece.

These aren’t exactly what you were after, but they are all examples of “mismatched” groom to groomsmen. I think that your idea is even more suitle than some of these and these don’t look weird at all. 

1. Although they really should have ironed their pants.

This last one actually is a 3-piece groom to two piece groomsmen!


You’ll look dashing. Go for it!
