We went to a local tux store instead of a chain.  I was really disappointed to find out that the big chains only show you a book of pictures and tell you to pick something.  You don’t see it in person until the day you pick it up!  You can’t actually see it in person or feel the fabrics.  I wasn’t ok with that so we went to a local place that keeps a lot of stock in the store so my fiance could try on multiple different options.  OOT groomsmen and my fiance’s dad will have to call in measurements or submit them on the store’s online form.

I’m also not a big fan of the same color vest and tie.  I think it looks prom-ey (as shown in the pic @caroheart posted!).  Also my BMs are wearing purple and I couldn’t find the right color purple anywhere and didn’t want the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen to clash!  I tried searching the internet for formal celebrity events like red carpet pics and just couldn’t find anyone with a colorful vest.  

With that said… My fiance is wearing a black tux, white shirt, white vest, and white tie. Groomsmen are wearing same black tux and white shirt but with a black vest and purple tie.  The dads are wearing the same black tux and white shirt but with the black vest and black tie.  We actually bought purple ties from Macys to match the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress sample fabric.  We are going this weekend to the tux shop to see if the material coordinates with the tux fabric and style.

We don’t know if we will have ushers yet or not.  If so they will probably wear their own suits, white shirts, and the same purple ties we bought for the Groomsmen.

If you want black and yellow and want to tone it down, how about black vest and yellow tie instead of yellow for both the tie and the vest?  Even if you choose a big chain I suggest going to a local shop so you can play dress up with your fiance and find something that works!  My fiance had to play dress up for the groom, the groomsmen, and the dads so we could imagine the whole picture!

Our wedding is very small. My guy bought a black calvin klein suit, white shirt, black silk tie and a black silk pocket square. We asked the other guys not to wear black suits, or at least not with black ties so that he stands out a bit.
