Go to your local tux shop and get the opinion of the worker. That’s what we did. I was set on a certain tux before we even got there but after seeing a few and getting suggestions from the owner I went with something else. Ultimately the decision was up to me my fiancée didn’t want to be picking out my tux after all I’m sure you didn’t let him pick the dresses.

Hell no to the mint shirt/pink tie combination. Way too much. Personally, I’d say ivory shirts and pink or mint ties. Or ties in a similar color to the dresses, but more saturated or more dusky–purely pastel ties with the tan pants and vests could risk going too far towards a cutesy washed-out easter-basket situation, depending on the exact colors going on and how they look on the individual groomsmen. And IMO you want to go with the same color tie for all the groomsmen, not alternating. Alternatively, you could go with something more unobtrusive like a deep blue or navy tie, that would coordinate without trying to match at all.

Most importantly, what do the groom and groomsmen have to say about it?

I would stick with a complimentary color. My BMs are wearing mismatched dresses (blues, purples, and greys) and the GMs will be wearing dusty green ties (I don’t think Fiance is doing vests). I don’t like the matchiness of the GMs wearing alternating colors; I’d probably choose a deeper complimentary color: turquoise, dark rose, gold, etc.

This wedding has the BMs the way you describe: http://theeverylastdetail.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Mint-and-Pink-Wedding_0024.jpg
I also love these color accents and think you could tie that into the GMs outfits: http://www.weddingsbylilly.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/mint-pink-wedding-theme.001.jpg
