Groomsmen Attire - Matching or Mixing It Up?

What style do the guys have in mind? Will the groom stand out in something different, or are they going for a fully uniform look?

    I had planned for my groom to stand out, but he messed up and didn't tell them that at the rental shop. He didn't get the name or style number of the tux he picked either. He thought he was helping by just going, but he just made it much more difficult on me and the guys

    I really like the idea of mixing it up so my FH will stand out but it's ultimately his decision that I will respect 100%.

    Mine is going to stand out. My guys are wearing grey suits with Wine colored tie and vests and my FH will be in a Wine colored shirt with silver vest and tie.

    Matching for the most part. My groom is going to wear an ivory vest the rest of them will be black vests with gray tuxes

    I originally wanted all matching in black because in the end everyone knows who the groom is. However after picking our venue I envision him in blue instead of black because of the background and the setting. I couldn’t have all the guys match him so we did mix match and I love the end result.

    Matching all the way down to the ring bearer. The only difference is that the groom's tie will be champagne color to match my dress and the rest will have red bow-ties to match the girls.

    FH & his groomsmen will be in the same suit, but FH will have a pink vest to stand out (the groomsmen won't be wearing a vest).

    My guy is matching, but only because we are going for something less tux like and more suit-like. He wants to buy a great suit anyways, so perfect timing! But, 3 piece navy suit with maroon/burgundy tie for all the guys.

    FH is standing out from his groomsmen. Although he is choosing a color that doesn’t go with our color scheme, but I figured it’s his day too. He should be able to wear whatever he wants.

    The groomsmen had basically the same outfit as H, but H had a jacket and they didn't.

    I like a little bit of both! Matching suits, but with different ties

    Mixing it up with the ties and shoes. Shoes have to be black dress shoes but dont have to be the same as everyone else.

    The Wedding was Saturday.

    All of the guys were similarly dressed.

    They had different Ties depending on their role: 🤵(Groom), 👴(FoG), 👨Usher, 🧔(Best Man), or 🕺🏻(Groomsman).

    Me and my FW are wearing a dresses and our bridesmen are wearing suits. So it is safe to say, we are mixing it up Smiley laugh

    This was my FH's decision and I'm 100% fine with what he wants. He's pretty old fashioned and simple and wants the guys to wear black suits, white shirts, and ties to match the girls dresses. He will dress the same as the groomsmen and he wants my dad to dress the same as them as well.

    Suits will probably match, but I may mix up FH's shirt and/or tie. I will ultimately check to see what he likes best
