I think grey is more casual looking. Can you show him the bridesmaid dresses perhaps?

Hi! I think a dark grey would be great! And yes a little bit more casual. Our ceremony is outside in the evening and we are doing smoke grey bridesmaid dresses and the guys will be in smoke gray pants! I think it’s a good way to keep it classy and casual-ish. We are also doing just Ivory dress shirts with suspenders and boe-ties. Instead of a flower boutinnier we are having their three letter monogram enbroidered above the pocket.

I think a dark gray suit would look great and yes, more casual. But if he is insisting on a tux, would a black suit be a better compromise? It would be more casual than a tux but still have that black, polished look that he likes.

Glad you found something you liked. My groom at first insisted that he liked the idea of a tux because he thought my dress was more formal even though we are getting married outdoors near a river, and has a sligth country rustic feel. Then I finally convinced of a charcoal grey suit that i absolutely love at www. JCREW.com it fits him wonderfully. I think what concerned him the most is that he didn’t want to spend so much more to buy a suit than it costed to rent a tux. But since we got the suit on sale for 30% off at Jcrew we snatched up. Take a look if you want at their wedding section under groom. It was a great find for me.
