Do you think I can just tell the groomsmen to wear a charcoal grey suit with a navy tie and let them either wear what they have in their wardrobe, buy or rent? I could also do black with navy ties. My girls are all in floor length navy dresses. All different. I just have them a color and length.

    I think losing them wear whatever gray or black suit they have would look lovely with navy!

    I think gray with navy ties would look great.

    Absolutely fine. We did something similar and it turned out really well. We told the groomsmen to wear dark grey suits. DH wore navy suit and we provided matching lighter blue ties and pocket squares.

    Not only will it work, it is very thoughtful. Encouraging the men to wear a grey suit of their choice allows them to keep within their own budget.

    Gray and navy look very nice together. Buying might be a bit more than renting but it's something that they can wear again!

    Not a fan of black and navy. I would definitely go with gray. I think its awesome you are being so considerate of the GM.
