    My husband and his groomsmen all wore their own black suits – it looked really good and some people already had a black suit so it saved them money!

    @PitBulLover: That’s mostly why we chose to go this way, all of my FI’s groomsmen have black suits, so no one has to spend a bunch of money 🙂

    My husband wore a 2 pc suit (dark brown with pin stripes) and we asked the groomsmen to wear black suits, which they all already owned or had been intending to buy. Only one person noticed/commented that they didn’t match exactly, and his comment was a positive one.

    groom and all the groomsmen are wearing thier own 2-piece black suits. with the excpetion of our brothers, they were all in a wedding not so long ago where they did the same thing, so we knew they already had black suits that looked good together in pictures.

    My groom and groomsmen all wore tuxedos with long ties so sliiiightly more modern but still pretty traditional.

    There’s no choice for “plain suit with a nice shirt and tie”. 🙂

    i would loooove for my groom to be able to wear a vintage suit but he’s a giant – 6’5″ and 300lbs. don’t suppose you carry sizes for huge wrestler body types? lol he’ll probably be wearing a tux from men’s warehouse or one of the department stores (the only places i know of that has his size) and hopefully find him a fun bow tie to liven it up.

    Fiance will wear a cutaway, the rest of the groomsmen will wear tuxedos. When you say ‘traditional tuxedo’ I am assuming you don’t mean full dress, correct?

    My hubby wore a white collared shirt, tan pants, and a tie. We weren’t very fancy.
