It is very classy! Has your FH suggested an alternative? It's good to sit down and talk about why you like certain things. It's possible he might change his mind, or you two can find a good compromise.
I love black and white personally! So classic. 10 years from now you won't be saying "why the heck did I put my bridesmaids in ____ color?" like I've heard a lot of women say that chose the color that was "in" when they got married. lol I liked blue suits though so I decided on taupe bridesmaid dresses. With the very neutral decor and greenery. If you're set on black dresses you could see if you could find suits like this for the guys and still put the girls in black? I like your original vision though
You can also add a shape to bring in some fun: stripes, polka dots, geometric, etc. Or you could focus on a texture like satin, or feathers. We had a black/white with polka dots for our swanky 60's reception:
I went to a winter wedding with black & white as their color scheme, and it looked great. They had white roses as their florals. The bridesmaids wore black dresses with a bit of white on them, and the groomsmen wore white sneakers. They even gave black & white cookies as favors.
