I think wedding parties where men wear suits can look really classy.  Sometimes they even look better than tuxes!

I would NOT have the groom wear a suit and the groomsmen wear tuxes.

What do you envision the Groomsmen wearing? What time of day is your wedding? How formal is your weding?  There are many things to consider.

I”m pretty sure the knot has pictures of grooms wearing suits… Did you try looking there?

Mine wore a suit he bought from Express that was actually really nice.  We originally wanted it in a light grey color (which would have made it look a little more formal) but we ended up having the groomsmen wear light grey pants and the dark ivory shirts that were the same color as the grooms suit.  It all fit together but he stood out (which is what we wanted… been to too many weddings where if they were all lined up you couldn’t actually pick out the groom).

Just looked at your dress, and I actually think a grey suit would be perfect!  That way it would still be formal enough to fit in, but he wouldn’t have to suffer in the tux  : )

i don’t have photos because we’re not married yet, but Fiance and all the Groomsmen are wearing black suits at our wedding. it’s still a formal wedding….but laid back formal as i keep calling it. Fiance was in a wedding where they did this and it looked great. i don’t think you need to be wearing a tux to be formal. my dad is the only one who is bummed about the lack of tuxes, since he owns one and is always looking for an excuse to wear it.

My guys wore suits w/ matching ties. The only guy to wear a vest was my husband. If your husband would be more comfortable in a suit, I say let him have it 🙂

In reality, suits and tuxs look so similar, both can look very formal.

My husband wore a black suit. I think it was nice looking and not too casual.
