My Fiance and his groomsmen are all wearing the same thing–black tuxes and bowties. Maybe have him have a different bout? But I don’t think anyone will forget who the groom is, so I think it’s fine to have them all dressed the same!

I’ve been to plenty of weddings where they wear the exact same thing or something just slightly different, like the shirt color, bout, or something along those lines.

I don’t think it’s wrong, but I do think it’s nice to have him stand out a little, even if it’s a different bout or pocket square color.

all of mine did – groom, 6 groomsmen + 2 fathers.  The only difference was DH’s boutineer.  He had a white flower with white ribbon and the guys had yellow.

I like artbee’s suggestion of a pocketfold. It’s a simple, classy way to tell the groom from the groomsmen. Or a more elaborate boutennaire. Or both!

My groom and his groomsmen all wore grey suits and burgundy tiews, but my groom had a more elaborate bout!

It’s your wedding do what makes you both happy! 

However, if you wanted to do something a little different for your groom, have him where a different bout (different flower from your bouquet) and/or pocket square.

Ours will all be wearing the same thing. If you and your Fiance like the look, then don’t worry about what someone else might say. No one is going to mistake your Fiance for one of the groomsmen 🙂

The only difference for ours is that my Fiance will be wearing two pocket squares; one white and one celedon (the same as the girls dresses). The rest of the guys will be wearing just celedon.

We had them all in the same thing. But my husband just had a different boutonniere. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it!

My Fiance is wearing the same thing as the other groomsmen – grey suit, white shirt (hey, this sounds familiar…) – but we got him a different color tie; groomsmen are in green ties, and Fiance has an orange tie with a small, same color green stripe.

I’ll also probably make his bout a little different than the groomsmen, but I haven’t decided for certain yet… will get to that when the flowers arrive and I see what I have to work with. Smile
