I think it will be fine if he wants to be different than his guys!  I think it’s a great idea that makes a lot of sense!

I think we’re doing this. Fiance is much the same in that he wants to wear a tux, and I really want him to stand out from the other guys so I don’t want them in tuxes. So as of right now Fiance is doing a tux classic black and white and his boys will be in gray suits with matching ties (color TBD). In my mind it looks totally fine. I don’t have pics but I’m sure someone here does.

I don’t think it will look bad at all.  As long as they’re all in the same color.  So if he’s wearing a black tuck, the men should wear black suits.  He has a good point, I’d let him take creative control on this ONE thing (lol).

We did a suit for the groom and khaki pants and white shirts for the boys with matching ties, I really like how it looked.

Yeah from my perspective it’s like, OK black tux and black suits – what is the point of that? It’s not distinctive enough for me. I don’t subscribe to the idea that the guys should be matchy-matchy with the groom – it’s not like the BMs are wearing white, so why do the GMs have to wear the same color as the Groom? Plus I love gray suits.

 If you go black tux/black suits, the pictures won’t show enough difference between them (it’s really just the satin trim that separates them). And the problem with black tux/gray suits is that it mixes formal with informal. There are so many tuxedo styles out there currently, it’ll be very simple to ensure he’ll be as different as he wants to be from the groomsmen

I think I started a very similar thread some months ago. I’m glad to see this is not just our issue. My Fiance also wears suits on a daily basis and is dead set on a tuxedo. We thought about having the groomsmen all wear black suits assuming they allready own them and it would be the eaisest option. However, the feedback from my mom and aunts and other bees was not so positive. Then we found out they don’t all have black suits so it didn’t make financial sense for them to all buy new suits since we are trying to not be a financial burden and none of them wear suits daily like Fiance. So out of pracitcality, they will rent matching tuxes and Fiance will wear a different tux. We also bought satin long ties for all of them. Next month we will go to a tux shop or two and see how it looks. If you end up mixing, I would love to see the photos.

What we are doing is my Fiance is going to be in a different tux then the groomsman….only small differences. Plus they won’t be wearing vests. It kind of gives them a classier looking suit, but it’s different. The only way to know if it will look weird is to have them side by side, maybe they can show you them side by side when you go to rent them….
