I have no problem at all with my clothing or flower girl clothing…I need help please with my groom and his Bridesmaid or Best Man…I am not traditional at all but would like things to look cohesive…My dress is deep purple…my flower girls are silver & sparkles…my Best Woman is wearing black with a little silver and sparkle…My man is not into looking overly fancy and we think he will probably buy a black suit….now my question: He will likely go with deep purple tie or vest to tie in with my dress….his Bridesmaid or Best Man will probably also wear a black suit…should his shirt tie and vest be the same as my groom? Or should they be slightly different?

My personal preference is not to go super matchy–maybe a white or silver tie with a purple stripe? And then something similar but not exactly the same for Bridesmaid or Best Man. I am not into colored vests–I think they look a little prom-y.
However, that is all MY personal taste, so you should do what you like! You can go on Pinterest and just search “groom” and see what you prefer. Also, if you go somewhere like Men’s Wearhouse, they can suggest different shirt/tie/vest combos, and you can see what you like in person.

Black suit sounds great for both your groom and best man. I would suggest going somewhere to play around with shirt, vest and tie options. Seems like purple, black, silver and white (and prints that incorporate those) are your options. For my wedding, our groomsmen wore charcoal grey suits, purple shirts, and white ties, and it looked great. I would encourage you to not rule out a colored shirt as an option. As far as cohesiveness, my husband wore the same suit, but with the matching vest and a white shirt — they looked like they belonged, but the vest, the brighter shirt, and a colored/larger boutonniere made him the center of attention.
I think whatever your groom wears, you want it to include at least some purple, so that you guys look cohesive. (For instance: my husband wore a white shirt to pick up the white in my dress, while the groomsmen’s purple coordinated with the bridesmaids.)
Also, are you doing flowers or boutonnieres of any sort? If you decide to have the groom and best man in the same outfit, different bouts are another way to distinguish the guys, and to bring in the purple.
One last word: make sure your groom’s preferences are heard. My husband chose everything, and did a great job. 😉

@lifegirl: I would have them all in white shirts, no vest (same prom issue for me) and different patterned or striped ties.

Thanks yes that could work…and my fiance would hate to wear a vest anyhow.
