    I’m with your Fiance on this one. I personally would not do an all-gray wedding. If you’re already committed to the bridesmaids being in charcoal (and with a May 2012 wedding, I’m sure you are), I would suggest that the groomsmen be in black instead of gray.  Your Fiance could then be in gray, which is what he would like.  I also must agree with your outspoken bridesmaid — I would not have your groom wear a green tie with a gray tux.

    ETA: Ordinarily, I would have recommended that your groom match the groomsmen by wearing a black tux as well. However, I suggested the gray for him since I know you both love the gray tuxes and he really wants to wear one.  However, if your bridesmaids were not already wearing charcoal, I think your Fiance and all the groomsmen would look great in the gray tuxes.

    I do think the bridesmaids’ dresses you picked and the tux you selected are both really nice! My primary concern is that there just won’t be sufficient contrast between the groomsmen and the bridesmaids and that your pics will be too … gray … and that you may wish that you had gone with more color.  However, it’s certainly your choice if you want to go with with the two shades of gray. I wish you the best, whatever you decide. 🙂

    Here’s a picture that shows what it would look like with the groom in grey (I actually found it on this site 🙂

    for what it’s worth, I think it looks nice 🙂

    Since you both like greys, you could differentiate by putting your Fiance in dark or light grey and the Groomsmen in the opposite. Like so…
