What did the groom do differently to make him stand out from the GM’s?
We are going to look at suits within the next couple of weeks and were talking about how my FI could wear a vest, and the other 2 guys could not – that way he would look a little different. However, then he made the comment that it might be nice for them all to have vests so that they could take their suit jackets off and still have something other than the shirt/tie.
I’ve seen pics where the groom wears a different colored tie, has a different boutoniere, etc. But, I’m still lost at what to do!

My fi is wearing a black vest and the guys are wearing a pink one. Also he’s wearing a different color tie. So he stands out but not way different.

Kacie209: When we went suit shopping, we settled on grey suits with black vests for all the men. My groom wore a ‘brighter’ green tie, while the groomsmen wore black ties, and my groom had the same color green pocket square, while they had black. They all wore ‘brighter’ green roses on their jackets. I thought my groom would want the black tie and the gm’s be in green, but he insisted on the green to stand out. I am really glad he did! He definitely stood out compared to the other men, and it was the perfect pop of color in our pics 🙂

I guess I should have described what I had envisioned… they will have charcoal gray suits on, and our dresses are a darker blue (not navy, but not cobalt). My flower colors are red/orange/yellow – and I’d like the ties to somewhat match the dresses.

My DH wore a gray suit, gray vest and white tie. The guys wore the same gray suit, no vest and a dark purple tie to match the girls.
I also had DH wear a mini-rose boutonniere while the guys wore sprigs of baby’s breath.

Kacie209: I think your thoughts on keeping the vests for all the men is very wise. When they take off their jackets they will still look put together.
If the groom wears a solid tie and the groomsmen wear stripes,or vice versa, the groom will still stand out.

That was our original plan that FI would wear vest and groomsmen would have suspenders. Now they are all wearing vests. Groomsmen are wearing neutral plaid shirts and solid brown tie. Groom is wearing solid blue shirt and brown plaid tie. All same vests and pants. It’ll be clear who I’m marrying haha.

Everyone wore black suits with white shirts. The GM had black vests with dark purple ties to match the bridesmaids, and my husband had a ivory vest and tie to match me. The GM had yellow freesia bouts and my husband had a bout with a yellow freesia and a small ivory rose (both of those flowers were in my bouquet). It looked great

The only difference will be he will have a small lapel pin with a yellow flower on it. All the guys are wearing gray suits with white shirts. He really liked the ties and pocket squares he bought the groomsmen and wanted the same one for himself. I would have preferred he did it a little differently, but I got to pick what I wanted to wear and wanted to give him the same courtesy 🙂 Since neither of us like boutonneires or corsages I made the lapel pins for FI, our dads, and my grandfather to make them stand out a bit.

Kacie209: I wore that EXACT SAME BM dress for my brother’s wedding a couple weekends ago. The GMs and Groom wore the same black tuxes, black vests, white shirts. Only difference was that the GMs wore black ties, and my brother wore a dark blue one. At my wedding, NH and his GMs wore the same black tuxes, black vests, white shirts, and the same kind of plaid ties, but GMs wore long ties, and NH wore a bowtie. To be honest, both my brother and my NH prefer understated to lots of color, so they preferred to switch up the ties rather than wear anything flashy.
