You might need to see how that looks visually and get the groom and groomsmen (as many that you can get to show up) try it on, and go from there. Or find some pictures and line them up together. I think it should look fine, but just to be sure….

well you could do whatever you want, it’s your wedding, so if you like it go right ahead, but in general I think the clothing should always be determined by the time and formality of the event.  Tails are used for the most formal of evening weddings (white tie and tails) usually or a formal morning wedding (morning suit). If it’s proper for one person to be wearing tails then really everyone should and if not’s proper then no one should.

That being said, no one is going to call the fashion police on you, so if you like then do it.

If that’s the look you want, then go for it.  Yes, there are etiquette rules that say tails or just for the most formal of events, but that’s antiquated to me. 

It’s your wedding, a once-in-a-lifetime event.  Most people go their whole lives without a reason to wear formalwear, and if that’s what your Fiance wants to wear, then do it. 

The bride gets to wear a gown that’s entirely different than the rest of your bridal party, so why shouldn’t the groom get the same courtesy?
