My Fiance insisted on tuxes with vests for all the guys, so they can take off their jackets at the reception.  They will all be in black tuxes.  FI has a platinum vest and long tie to match the metallic accents on my gown, the guys have black vests with a peacock blue striped tie to match the bridesmaids’ gowns.

My hubby had a white pocket square and bigger boutonniere.  The groomsmen had blush pink pocket squares to match the bridesmaids.  They all wore traditional black tuxes with black vests and bowties.  The pocket squares and boutonnieres were the only difference, and they looked awesome.

DH wore a bowtie in a neutral blue and the groomsmen wore pink ties that matched the bridesmaids’ dresses!

I didn’t. They all wore classic black tuxes. My husband purchased his tux, though, so it was definitely a nicer version than what the groomsmen wore (though 2 of them had their own tuxes, too). Like PPs have said – it’s not something to stress over; people know who the groom is.

For my wedding, the men all wore black tuxes with black vests.  The groomsmen wore blue ties and pocket squares and the groom wore an ivory tie and pocket square

Husband was in a suit (based on the one Brandon Flowers wore in the video for Mr Brightside), best man was in his kilt.

My Fiance will be wearing a light charcoal suit, his groomsmen in a paler grey.

Even though everyone will know he is the groom, we wanted him to stand out in all our photos. We are fans of much more relaxed ‘journalistic’ style candid shots, so he won’t always be front and centre and we wanted something to help draw attention to him in the photos just like my dress will do for me.
