Groomsman Vs Groom-Tuxes-SAME OR DIFFERENT?

Cate, on January 14, 2012 at 10:44 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 23

Hello all!

My FH and I were looking at tuxes today and we saw great choices of colors that I would like to use for our wedding. A Black tux with black vest, champagne tie and ivory shirt since my dress is ivory and has a champagne ribbon on it...

I would really like my FH to stand out since he is the groom, I would like him in the choice we choose above and the groomsman in slightly the same, but just a different color tie (tea rose) since that is the color my BMs are wearing.

Do you think that we should have the groomsman and the groom wear the exact same tux, or do what I suggested of the different color ties?

    We chose the same tux but different color ties.

    The chick at Mens Wearhouse suggested FH's tie/vest should match my dress (ivory), and the GM's ties/vests should match the BMs (champagne).

    What does he want to wear?

    I like your suggestion...and that's what I'm doing too! Smiley smile We really loved the way the black tux and the black vest looked together. He is going to wear a white tie and the groomsmen will have a white tie.

    Kris S, yes the man at Jos. A. Bank suggested the same thing, my FH doesnt mind either, he just refuses to wear a bow tie lol

    That's what we did! They had the same tuxes, the best man had a black vest and a black tie, and my DH had champagne vest and tie. It looked fabulous.

    We're having them all wear the same tux, but FH is going to have a silver vest and tie, and the groomsmen are going to have a purple vest and tie.

    We did same tux, different vest/tie. FH wore an ivory vest/tie to match my dress and the GMs wore cognac ties/vests because cognac was one of our wedding colors. (The BMs wore our other color - wine)

    I love the color combo Cate. So, Frank will match me with a white shirt.

    Do you pics of the tuxes?

    We're doing the same tuxes, but FH will wear a white shirt, tie and vest, and the GM will wear white shirts with champagne vests and ties. I want FH to stand out.

    The GMs had simple black tuxes, while DS had a red vest and tie. All had DIY pinwheel bouts.

    I think what you are doing is great! We are doing something similar - FH will be wearing a white tie to match my white dress and the groomsmen will be wearing orange ties to match our wedding colors. The BMs are wearing pink dresses, since our colors are pink and orange. I love the idea of the groom standing out from everyone else.

    Mom, I do not have pictures, I went to Jos. A. Bank and made the tux, it wont allow me to save the picture.

    Rachel S, i love the champagne look!

    Shannon S, I love that looks as well, very classy. I wish I could get my FH to wear a bow tie but he refuses!

    Soon to be Mrs. C, very nice! I love the idea as well!

    Ednabug, I love the white/cream colored jacket, we discussed doing that as well, but are most likely going to stick to black on black. But it does make your DH stand out and it is his special day as well, and that why I really like the idea to have the groom in something a bit different then the groomsman.

    We are going tux shopping tomorrow, so thanks for all of the ideas Smiley smile

    I also think I am going to have my groom stand out...it just seems like the more obvious choice to me. We got our BM dresses and my gown from DB and we are going to Men's Warehouse tomorrow, so I'm sure they will give us all sort of ideas!
