Quick question and poll:
Do my FI’s suit and his groomsmen’s suits have to be the same?
He is wearing a dark grey suit, with matching vest, haven’t bought a tie yet.
Groomsmen we were thinking as close to the same grey as we can get, but not sure about vests.
Also what colour tie would look nice with dark grey? Colour scheme is pale yellow, pink and taupe, but I don’t like the idea of any of these as ties.

They don’t HAVE to be the same, but that is the norm. Normally the suit is the same and the tie/vest is different. It’s fine if they aren’t the same though, as long as they coordinate! 🙂

They do NOT have to be the same. Are your bridesmaids wearing bridal gowns? He should stand out. Maybe have them in a different colour grey, in two-piece instead of three. My groomsmen are wearing medium grey suits that they are choosing for themselves, with white shirts with double cuffs (french cuffs). I’m supplying the ties, and they’ll be coordinated but mismatched. I’m not wearing anything like what my groomsment are wearing, but my fiancée reads this board sometimes so I can’t tell you what I’m wearing, since this is my real name.

For ties, I’d go maybe with grey ties (you could do some solid, some with subtle stripes to mix it up) and do matching shirts in pale yellow or pink.

Thanks! I honestly had no idea, I thought they could go have a guy’s day and pick something themselves, but now as usual, I have been asked to go into the city and choose – it’s apparently up to me. Even though I have never worn a suit. But I like the idea of my lovely Fiance standing out 🙂

Similar suit, different tie/vest. I love pink and gray together!!

Get them to do it themselves. They’re just worried they’ll pick something you hate. Give them a few “ABSOLUTELY NOT THIS” and let them have fun picking them out.

They can definitely be a different color of grey suit.
For the ties, I would look for something that had grey with yellow, pink or taupe. You can get mismatched ties as Duncan mentioned.
