I think that is totally fine for a winter wedding.

We did black and white and green, but to avoid having too much green, my husband really wanted dark and light grey vests & ties for the guys.  The day of, it totally reinforced that the clothing not matching exactly didn’t matter much.  At the wedding, it was black and white clothing with green flowers and silver vests.. no biggie.. Once you got to the hall, everyone was wearing a million different colors, so my maids wearing black dresses were just another person wearing a black dress.  It didn’t effect the look of the decor at all.

The question is that right now, your look is very formal, do you think that the stripe is so noticeable that it will make it less formal?  Our guys had pinstripe tuxes, could you do pinstripe suits to break up the all black for them?  Would that work?  Maybe all the guys wear ivory shirts.  He wears the ivory tie, they wear the red ones?

Your call, but I think there is wiggle room.

FI’s attire, (mostly) FI’s choice!

I only stepped in when Fiance wanted to wear his black suit and have his brother wear his pinstripe so they didn’t have to buy/rent new suits. Other than that, it was their choice.

Yeah, if you like the shimmer ones, see if there is any way to purchase them!  So long as your Fiance loves them too, but it sounds like he did.

This is just my opinion but I’m not a fan of the black shirts. I do think it looks dark. If there could be something to break up the black from the black shirts to the black jackets to the black pants, I think it would be less severe looking.

Just my opinion!

@PinkPinstripes:  I have the same opinion as PinkStripes. It’s a pretty severe look.  I think the picture that looks the best above is the middle one where the contrasting tie is reigned in a bit by the high vest, high button stance on the jacket, and the matching accessories. Makes it less severe.

not too dark at all! i worked in men’s formalwear for many years and that is always a great look, a little modern and trendy though, so if you don’t want that, i would stay away from it. my fiance wanted to “murder-out” (flat black) his groomsmen and so they are wearing black on black on black and they look SHARP!my Fiance is wearing a claret tie on top of the black shirt.

 who wears a tuxedo to a funeral? ๐Ÿ™‚

 

tell me this isn’t sexy!
