    Being incredibly persnickety, none of those is a tux. They’re all gorgeous three piece suits, but a tuxedo is a very specific type of suit jacket.

    I think it would be better to pic your other colours and then decide. I’d either go for the black or the grey (white is so easily marked), although my personal preference would be the black.

    I love the high contrast of the black and white especially with rich colors like fuchsia and purple.

    White tuxes always look like a costume to me.

    IMO, the groomsmen and groom all need to have matching pants and jackets, even if they have different colored accessories.

    If you are getting married in the day time, the gray is awesome. We are using similar colors and I wanted Fiance to wear gray, but he doesn’t want to.  If its an evening ceremony, I’d go for black, its more formal.

    @hunnybee123: All my guys wore black and white.  I did Darling Husband with a black tie and the guys with a patterned black tie.  Darling Husband had a white pocket square and the guys had ones that matched their ties. That is how I seperated them.  You can also do different bouts if you are planning to use those.

    I like white or black for his color, with your wedding colors so vibrant I would want it to pop against him. I don’t think grey would work.

    @hunnybee123:  You can vary the accessories but I guarantee that everyone will know which one is the grrom. He’s the one next to the bride!

    I think definately the black, I like grey suits, but not with a shiney grey tie and a waist coat, I think if you are going for a shiney tie like that with a waist coat it has to be black, a grey suit would look great without a waist coat and with a lavender or pastel coloured tie, like this (see below) as pp have said it looks better if all the men are in the same coloured suit and are distinguished by their ties and accessories
