I think black would look great, but if your Fiance doesn’t want to wear it, gray is a great alternative. I think it’s definitely formal enough for night – it’s what our guys will be wearing! 

If they are wearing suits and it matches with your other colors, I think khaki suits would look really nice with navy blue!

If the girls are in blue, the guys could do blue or charcoal. It would look great! You can even combo colors in suit tops and pant bottoms to change the daytime/nighttime feel. What helped me is the suit/tux builder apps on some mensware websites. You can custom build your own suits or tuxes with different colors and see first hand what everything will look like. I think Davids Bridal has something like that too! Good luck!

I am doing the same dresses in the same color and all the fellas are wearing black tuxes.  Personally, I think it looks lovely together, especially if there is continuity between bouquets and boutonnieres.  As for your guy not wanting to wear black…I’ve got nothing.  I suppose he could wear a navy tux, but that just makes me think of Father of the Bride-

What are you talking about?! Armani doesn’t do a navy tux-ADO!

Well, Armani also doesn’t do polyester…

Would your guy be willing to wear a black tux w/ white tie?  Not much of a compromise, but who knows…

What about like…a charcoal gray pinstripe for him? http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/MensBrowse/Men_Shop_By_Category/suitinganddressshirts/italianwoolsuiting/PRDOVR~16855/16855.jsp' defer='defer

His guys could wear a lighter grey color with navy ties to make the look consistent…

I second @mizrunzou grey suits with navy ties would look very classic
