I think gray tux and purple would be good!

I love the idea of grey tuxes for a spring wedding, but I would not do an ivory vest. By the way, the groom does not need to wear an ivory shirt either. They tend to look dingy and a white shirt does not make your dress look dirty or dingy either.

I would have the best man wear a purple vest  to go with the bridal party and have the groom wear green to pick up on the green in your flowers. The men can wear ties that reverse the colors also, purple with green stripes for one and green with purple stripes for the other.

ETA if he wants to wear black, let him. I don’t think black is any bolder than purple and nothing looks better than a man in  a tuxedo.

If he insists on black, and you don’t like black and purple (sounds a little too dark to me) then have him do a black tux and grey vest.

I personally don’t like matchy matchy groosmen and bridesmaids. My bridesmaids will be in coral, but the guys will be in black and grey.

why not black tux and a neutral vest? silver, grey, charcoal, ivory, beige etc… with a  purple bout.

@Ennie:  No, no, no to black and purple. I actually don’t see a need for vests at all with a tux. Most rental places push them, but if you look at celebrities lately (Ryan Seacrest is a perfect example) vests are definitely on the out. There’s something that is so simple and sophisticated about a guy in a black tux, white shirt, and neutral bow tie.

Don’t make the guys coordinate with the girls. It’s going to look a little forced, and most guys don’t want to wear that shade of purple. Vests never, ever look good without a jacket, either. The shirt sticks out in the back, it has that cheap shiny material and ugly buckle, they never really fit… ugh!

@BlondeBee:  this! the matching vests to the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses screams “prom” to me

You can’t force him to wear something he’s not comfortable in, so just worry about matching your purple dresses and maybe he can put in a purple carnation or something. Gray or black sound equally nice as a tux.

I think black tux with grey vest would look nice, and the guys could be in black tuxes with purple vests.

OR you could do grey tux/white vest for him, and grey/purple for the Groomsmen
