    I think it’s nice when the groom is dressed slightly differently. The bride is dressed completely different from the maids and you should be able to easily point out the groom, too, in my opinion! It’s a day that the couple shares together. Just a slight difference, like, maybe a different colored pocket fold kerchief thing that grooms wear. (What are those called??) If not, though, it’s NO BIG DEAL 🙂

    Given that the fellas are wearing the same charcoal suit (already decided) and that the tie is perfect…..I think the pocket square idea is great, or he could add a vest (or a vest in a different colour?) or perhaps there’s a way to take the tie to a tailor or seamstress and have the fabric made into a bowtie?

    Either way, he stand out.

    I agree that the groom should stand out from the groomsmen. It doesn’t have to be anything drastic, but something like a vest, pocket square, etc should help.

    I think its your choice.

    In comparison I have read sone people think bridesmaids shouldn’t be in white because who will know who the bride is.  Personally I love bridesmaids in white.  Its all personal preference.

    I don’t see why bridesmaids or groomsmen need to stick out and be totally different to the bride and groom.  I am assuming everyone at your wedding knows you and your partner, so I doubt there will be actually any confusion as to who are the ones tieing the knot.

    So go with your vision!

    First off , He should be in a Tuxedo. His accesories should compliment the Brides dress. It’s His day too. A suit you wear to someone elses wedding. How many guests wear a tuxedo to other peoples wedding (unless its black tie)… Exactlly..Your in a Bridal Dress that costs $$$..Tuxedo for the groom. Whats up with this suit thing? You wear suits to work,funerals..etc..No big deal. If you want to do some crazy thing, save it for the reception, at least you will have elegant pictures and fun pictures to remember that special day.

    Honestly my groom was identical to his gm in classic tuxes. There was no mistaking the groom though!

    i think its up to your individual wedding… if you love the ties- id go with the PP and get him a different vest and pocket fold….my Fiance wants something a tad different but nothing to dramatic.

    i dont think it matters… Fiance stood in a wedding last summer and all the guys (including groom) had same suit, shirt and tie- and i thought it looked nice

    however, for our wedding Fiance and guys will be wearing the same suits/vests/shirts – groomsmen will wear green tie/pocket square and FI’s will be white 🙂

    we decided for the cost to rent a tux you could purchase a suit… all the guys agreed they would prefer this!

    Groom and GMs are wearing regular black suits.  Groom’s tie and pocket square will be different than the GM’s.  No bouts

    @Richg8:  I see where you’re going with this, but I respectfully disagree.  Weddings are no longer super traditional and by the book – people are having the kinds of weddings that fit their personalities, even if it includes getting married barefoot, in seersucker suits, in scuba gear, in clown make up… tuxedos are still around of course, but I don’t see why they are such a big deal.  I’m not wearing a rented gown, why should my fiance wear a rented tux?    And he’s definitely not buying one, that’s fo sho. 

    I think a suit, especially a dark suit with a vest, can look even more elegant than a tux simply because they get tailored better to the person.  My fiance is going to wear a black suit and his groomsmen will be in grey.  Our wedding is semi-formal and NO ONE will mistake who the groom is.  I dont think he should be ‘noticed’ because of his attire. If people don’t know who the groom is, they probably shouldn’t be invited.  🙂
