    No one will be confused about who you are marrying. You are overthinking. If your fiancé wants his best man to match him that’s fine. Your man of honor is on your side so it’s totally up to you if you want him to match the other two men or if he should wear his own thing but it really doesn’t matter.

    Overall I really don’t think it matter whichever way you go. They are not going to think you are marrying your friend. It will be quite clear when you turn your back on him and say your vows to your Fiance who you will be marrying 🙂

    If it were me personally I would have the best man, and man of honour matching, and put your groom in the same suit but with a slightly different colour tie or vest depending on what your overall aesthetic is. For the sake of pictures I wouldn’t have everyone in different suits although really if you like that I think no one other than you and your Fiance will really notice. If you want to have your mate of honour slightly different you could pick a different cut or style of suit but keep the colour the same I.e. navy. I think as long as some elements are consistent everyone will go together but may not be “matchy matchy”

    Personally I’d find it odd why one guy was wearing a different suit than the other two, especially given he’s not the groom. But if you have a program or something that highlights the wedding party, I’d catch on pretty quickly it was because he was part of your bridal party. I agree with PP, I’d have the Bridesmaid or Best Man and the Man of Honor wear the same thing, and have the groom wear slightly different. You could also have all three of them wear the same suit/tux, but each wears a different tie or something like that?

    I actually would find it a bit odd if the groom and best man matched and the mate of honour was different. If anyone is going to stand out it should be the groom, right? So I’d have the groom be different and the other two match, or all different if you a mix and match look.

    If it’s your man of honor, attire is your prerogative assuming consultation re budget and style. So your fiancé was out of line there. That said, wedding parties need not be chorus lines. I think it’s refreshing when people ask their friends to stand up for them and tell them to wear what they like.

    the guests won’t think much of it, but you may notice it in the wedding photos.

    I’d say since you already told your mate of honor that he can go ahead and wear whatever that the easiest solution is all three wear what they want.  But if he hasnt purchased yet, and doesn’t really care either way, all three could match too–I agree with a PP that it will be a tad strange in the photos the one suit that stands out isnt the groom.. but I’m also not sure how many photos you’ll put up of the four of you anyway!
