We’re getting married in the middle of HOT July in Richmond. The wedding is entirely indoors and the reception is in the same location. My colors are Yellow and Grey. My dress is on the casual side, and the yellow bridsmaids dresses are as well. I thought it would be nice and appropriate for the Groomsmen to wear grey (or a the very least a light Tux). Well, my fiance absolutely does not like the grey and would prefer to wear black or dark brown. I think those colors are too heavy for the feel of the wedding (and I really cannot stand black to the point of having almost none in my wardrobe). I put my foot down on the issue, and we came to the compromise of him wearing ivory to match me, and the groomsmen wearing khaki. Now I’m wondering if it really matters that much and whether I should let him do what he wants. To me dark colors seem to heavy for hot summer days indoor or out, am I wrong? Should I trust my instincts as a designer and get what I want, or back down and let him have his way? SO conflicted!

IMO, the tux is your FI’s decision. Him and his friends/brothers/etc. are the ones who have to wear it. My Fiance picked everything himself with no input from me.
I think it would be fine to do black or dark brown.

I’d let him have this one. In my wedding plans, this is the one aspect that I’ve allowed my FI to have complete creative control over lol. It was a struggle, but in the end it worked out fine. He picked something I was very pleased with. In your case he is going against what you like but it still sounds like it will look really nice.

My Darling Husband and his Bridesmaid or Best Man both wore black tuxes for our July wedding. It’s not heavy as much as formal. I think since he is the one wearing it, you should let him have his way. A lot of grooms choose their attire for the wedding, and if he isn’t demanding anything else, it’s nice to let him plan something.

what time of day is the ceremony/ reception? i think anything after 3 ish formal black will look nice! I love the color combo btw.

Let him pick within reason (ie, no top hat, etc). I think saying no black or dark colors is a little bit out of reason on your part. What about a compromise of a charcol?
