    I think it will look weird, because a black suit looks more formal than tan and your husband will be wearing a more casual looking suit.

    i agree that tan may look a bit too different to the groomsmen. how  about a dark navy if he doesn’t want to wear black? that way he is still different but not a huge contrast 🙂

    My FI will be wearing a gray tux and his guys will be in black. Brides always stand out in pictures, but it’s hard to tell which is the groom, so I wanted mine to stand out too, hence the gray tux!

    I definitely wouldn’t do tan suits with a black suit but my brother had all of his guys wear a gray suit (they all purchased the same one) and he wore a navy suit which looked really sharp. If youre cool with everyone being in the same suit, I don’t think its too much to ask for the groomsmen to purchase that beige suit from Macy’s. I think my brother’s guys spent 300 or so on attire. Our groomsmen are spending over 200 to rent tuxes (and some are buying which is ending up being 400-500 with discounts). And there are always Macy’s coupons floating around.

    @coloberry1:  well if that is the suit he loves then that’s the one he should go for 🙂 it’s like when you know which dress is ‘the one’, you just know 🙂

    Do you match your bridesmaids or do you stand out?

    He’s the groom! He should stand out too. I think it would look nice.

    It’s pretty modern for the groom to look different from the groomsmen. I say go for it!

    Who cares what fmil thinks, it’s his wedding and he should wear what he wants. Brides don’t pick theier wedding dressesto match with the bridesmaid dresses and grooms shouldn’t have to do it too.
