    I think since the grey in some of your bridesmaid dresses is a lot lighter of a grey you would be ok with all grey since their dresses will break up the monotony.

    ETA: SInce you clarified in your other post that most of the girls will be wearing the dark grey then I would go with the black. It would be to monochromatic otherwise.

    Black tuxedos for the men. I think you need a bit of contrast and that it will look sharp.

    I like the grey suit, but it’s not a tuxedo.

    Black tuxes are just sooo sharp!!! I especially love bow ties too.

    I think that would be a good contrast with gray Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

    @SpecialSundae I think the gray one is a tux- it has silk lapels and the sleeves are shorter.

    If it is a formal wedding I wonder if the groomsmen will blend in with other tuxedoed guests or waitstaff.  I like the look of the grey-it feels more modern and special.

    That is a gorgeous suit!! Where did he find it?  I love how dark the grey is… still very dressy.

    Grey is a daytime color in menswear, I’d do black for an evening wedding.

    @Damari:  

    I just realized I didn’t answer your question directly.  The grey is fabulous and, I think, Plenty formal for an evening wedding.  I don’t buy into the “only black for an evening wedding,” thing. 

    @julies1949: 

    Thank you!

    @Damari:  Sorry, it must have been the screen res at work. I think the groom in grey with the rest in black would look great.
