Typically the groom has a white or black vest, but if you want a color then that’s great, too. If you don’t like the red for your groomsman then do silver. You can have his bouttonierre be a red flower if you would like him to have red somewhere.

I agree with PP! Silver would be lovely. I can imagine red overload if the Maid/Matron of Honor and all the Groomsmen are all in red.

I think tuxes should only have black accessories, (vest, tie, bowtie).  The colored ones that match the bridesmaids tend to look very promy to me and the opposite of what an elegant tuxedo should look like.

Also, our photographer (and the tux shop), advised against using a white vest and tie as they tend to really wash out in photos and make the groom look undersdressed.  

just my $0.02.

I agree silver would look amazing. Mine wore Ivory and it really helped him stand out as the groom.

I like black vests with colored ties/bouts – that’s what our guys wore!

@Meowkers: Agreed.  With this color combo, the set-up is perfect to go classic black tie with a red boutonniere. White shirt, black everything else, red boutonneire. Buy some cheapo white pocket squares for everyone. Blam: sophisticated and matching, all at once. Assuming matching is important, that’s a win-win. (Oh and if silver must be included,it’s gonna be on the rims of the black studs and cufflinks.)

@cutexkitty: My groom and his groomsmen are wearing the same tux in the same colors.  he will stand out because he is wearing a white bout while the rest of the guys are wearing pink bouts.
