I think what you have planned sounds great!

Stick to your guns & tell them its too late to change anything.

I think it will look completely fine, they are all black so they will match in that sense. Most people will probably not even notice that one is a suit and one is a tux. I agree that it is ridiculous to ask people to buy a tux for a one time event.

When I was at a bridal show I asked a man there with Moores or some place what the difference is between a suit and a tux.

He said the REAL difference is that tux’s do not have real buttons or belt loops. So you need to buy those pin buttons and cufflinks and you need suspenders to keep your pants up.

I wouldn’t worry. Most people will probably not even notice.

i actually think it’s great that the groom stands out a bit. they will look cohesive as they are wearing black suits, white shirts and matching bowties. when your in laws mention this, i’d just say that it’s been decided and it’s going to look great! cause it will!

@Heartly:  I think as long as the color flow looks fine, it won’t make a difference whether or not all the guys are wearing tuxes or not! 🙂
