Technically, I think tuxes might not be the “correct” suit for a reception starting at 4pm BUT it’s really up to you! Are you having a formal reception? Is it black-tie or black-tie optional?

I say, have the guys wear whatever you want 🙂

Another way to have the groom stand out a bit more is to have a different colored boutonniere than the groomsmen.

Or the guys could be in all black suits with different colored vests- groomsmen in grey vests, groom in black or vice versa. Or if they are wearing suits, the guys in one color tie and the groom in another?

I know that different types of suits are appropriate for different times of days, but like PP said, you can do whatever you want. Like what if the rest of the guys wore regular looking tuxes, but the groom wore a “full dress or tailcoat”? That’s kind of what Im thinking we might do, I’m just not totally sure how it will look or if it’s “legit.”

For ours, my husband was the only one with a white vest/tie. The rest wore wedding colors. I think his flower may have matched my bouquet (white) instead of the wedding colors. We also live on a ranch, and he was the only one with a cowboy hat – but that is something that only works for certain weddings.

our boys are wearing tuxes, but we’re having an evening black tie event. The boys will wear black ties and Fiance will wear a white one, so they will be different. We went the uber traditional route with that, and I always thnk it looks so awesome with a bunch of hotties standing up there all dressed up in tuxedos!

Darling Husband wore an ivory jacket, but it fit with our 40’s are deco theme. The rest of the boys wore traditional black tux and bow tie and our dads wore eggplant colored vests, which matched the bm dresses.

Fiance and his boys will all be wearing grey tuxes instead of black. The guys will be wearing a light tangerine color vest/tie and Fiance will be in a dark fuchsia to stand out. He will also have a fuchsia bout while they have orange. Our ceremony will start at 4 pm, outside and is somewhere between semi casual and semi formal.

I think it would be a bit strange to have Fiance in a completely different color, I would just make his vest and tie different.

Our guys wore tuxes but didn’t wear the vest/cummerbund rather they just wore a regular tie.. the Groomsmen wore a different color tie and chucks than the groom so that’s how my Darling Husband stood out =)

Vest, tie, bout, pocket square. Also…everyone will know who he is and that he is the groom! (Just like they will know you are the bride, even if you didn’t have the white dress)

@Caizn: I dont think it’s because people can’t find him…I think it’s so he can be unique like the bride! My Fiance was actually kind of jealous that I got the big ring and big dress…he’s getting married too

@yassim:  We have different flowers for the bridesmaids and matching boutineeres for the men (white gerbera daisies.)   Fiance, my son and I will all have red roses.

Fiance and I were just wondering the same thing! One option was to have the GMs in all black suits and FI’s suit would be black with pinstripes.

My Fiance will be wearing a dark gray tux and the groomsmen will be wearing the same tux, but in black. I wanted him to stand out as well and I think it will look great! I found this picture that helped sway me, hope it helps you too!
