    turtleneck is a hard no from me… it just doesn’t make any sense with a suit jacket.  Maybe it’s trendy? I don’t follow that stuff, but if it is, it’ll look super dated in ten years.  I’d stick with the classics.

    Very few men look good in a turtleneck. Who does look good with no neck?

    I think one of you could look good in a turtleneck, perhaps if you chose something different to tie your look together (it could be as subtle as a lapel pin, or that both button down and turtleneck are black-) 

    two turtlenecks just reminds me of theatre. So many black turtlenecks …

    i think matching color-wise is plenty. 

    If you want the same shirts, sorry but I’d have to vote button down! 

    You’ll both look smashing 😍

    Sorry but I’d say no for the turtle neck! I think the other look will look more timeless. I like the idea of matching shirts to bring some cohesiveness to your look. If you don’t necessarily want to match maybe you could just find coordinating patterns/colors?

    So much hate on the turtle neck! I see some very fashionable men wearing that look and I love it. I do agree with  ahsoka :  that both of you in that will look too much though. 

    Personally I prefer less matching – so you wear the turtleneck and he wears the button down. If you want to have the same shirt, I say do a button down.

    What colors are the respective suits? What is anticipated season/venue/formality/time of day?

    Unfortunately, that turtleneck looks a bit too casual for a groom’s attire. It would work for a guest attending a modern wedding in an art gallery, but it’s a little basic for a groom. However, that dark gray patterened shirt looks lovely!

    How about a mandarin collar shirt? Would sort of be a middle ground between a button-up and a turtleneck. The turtleneck to me looks super 90s and a bit dated.

    Love turtlenecks- dignified, not overly stuffy or formal, retro.

    sciencefig :  I too prefer less matchy matchy so I would go with what you each want to wear.

    So, while I do love a turtleneck with a suit, I will say that for your wedding, where there will be a lot of pictures, a button down is a better choice. Turtlenecks are great if you are standing certain ways, but the button down will have more flattering angles. You don’t want to lose your neck during the ceremony and you don’t want to be thinking of standing a certain way, so I vote the button down
