You don’t say where you live to give ideas for suit rentals.

Mismtached grey suits can look great. Always remember when our mother’s don’t like an idea, that it’s nothing personal, it’s just not what they are used to.

We were in a similar situation. The boys still haven’t purchased yet, but we’ve come up with a solution. Our groomsmen are going to be wearing a medium grey suit (all the same), while my man is wearing a lighter grey suit that is a little more expensive. We’ve done it so that the groom has a white boutonniere, white shirt etc. to match the bride (me) with my white dress, white bouquet etc. The groomsmen will have boutonnieres to match the bridesmaid’s colored bouquets. I’ve seen a photo of a similar wedding party so I will try to find it for you! I think it will look great though. It sort of makes the groom feel special for standing out with his bride πŸ™‚

At my first wedding, the guys just wore suits–we didn’t even have them the same color.  Mismatched grey suits will be fine.

This isn’t the photo I was thinking of, but here is a good example πŸ™‚

We’re also looking for grey suits for our groomsmen, and I think I’ve mentioned this before on a different thread, but we’re probably going to go with StudioSuits.com.  They do custom-made suits made out of a terry rayon fabric for $99/suit and then only $15 in shipping.  I just received some fabric swatches from them, and it seems perfectly fine.  We’re probably going to order just one suit from them first, just to see how it is – and then order the rest.

Our guys wore mis-matched gray suits and I thought they looked great!  Especially if some of the groomsmen already own gray suits, I think you should go that route.  Then the guys who do have to buy can choose something suitable to their budget.

I know this has been resolved already but I don’t think anyone had already mentioned that your fiance had purchased a beautiful grey suit but what was at Men’s Wearhouse was a grey tux (thus the satin on the lapel and buttons.)


I don’t think there’s anything wrong with mismatched shades of the same color, but the groomsmen dressed more formally than the groom might be a little bit funny looking (;

My FH only has one grooms man so I’m concerned about them looking too random if they aren’t the same suit, although I don’t necessarily want it to be too matchy matchy…not sure what to do, although I want them to wear gray.
