Well, suits and tuxes are entirely different levels of formality so technically, I don’t think it would work.  That said, unless you’re having a black tie wedding, the guests will probably be wearing suits so perhaps its not a big deal if the groomsmen are too.  Would they be black suits or just whatever color they happen to own?

I think this depends on your FI’s style of tux.  There are so many different styles.  If he has more of a suit style (as it seems he does), I think this would be fine.  If he has a tux with long tails on the back,it may look somewhat odd.

Are you sure everyone else has a suit to wear?  Does the person in Europe want to bring his suit all the way with him? I think in deciding this you need to talk to the groomsmen.  I was surprised how many of our groomsmen do not own suits (and hence why we’re doing tuxes).
