Rustic Semi-formal Fairytale wedding - groomsmen attire, help!

I'm getting married in December of 2014. I just got engaged, but I have been planning the skeleton of what I wanted for the wedding for almost a year. After moving things around a LOT, the date we were able to agree on with our families is in a totally different season of the year than the May date I was originally planning around.

I've decided to keep the Fairytale theme and color scheme I had going, which is gold with warm shades of dusty pinks and neutral tones like champgane, ivory, cream, nude, etc. It's very ecclectic, rustic and shabby chic, with lots of texture and natural elements. The wedding is in a field in East Texas, at 2 PM in late December.

The bridesmaids are mismatched and semi-formal, so we of course want the groomsmen to complement that style overall with their attire, probably mismatching also.

Here lies the big question: what on EARTH can the groomsman wear that fits this color palette and Fairytale theme that they could wear in cold weather, put together themselves, not spend too much money on, and yet still fit into the semi-formality and blend with each other and with the bridesmaids?

    I have seen many mismatch groomsmen that are a mix of suits, suspenders, bow ties, sweaters, vest, plain dress shirts, etc. I think as long as they stick within a colour palette, everything will come together. In the cold weather, they can throw on blazers, jackets, nice dress sweaters, long sleeved dress shirts.

    Here's one I just found: different textures and designs on the vests and ties, but everyone blends well together.

    One thing you could do is have them all wear the same pant and shirt, have them pick out their own matching vest and tie. This keeps some uniformity, while allowing them some flair.
