I am hoping to get some advice about tuxedos. The bridesmaids chose their own long dresses in either gold, champagne or blush. The mothers are wearing long black dresses. (The general wedding attire is "cocktail attire")
The original thought would be that the groom, fathers and groomsmen would be in black tuxedos. The groom is now questioning how to handle the men's attire. The fathers and some of the groomsmen own black tuxedos, but they would then all be different. The groom is also planning on buying a tuxedo before the wedding.
Would it be ok if the groom asks the groomsmen to all rent the same tuxedo and get matching ties, possibly coordinating with the bridesmaids' colors? If so, should the fathers rent the same tuxedos as the groomsmen or can they wear their own? It was also suggested that the groom could wear a black tie, the fathers wear black bow ties and the groomsmen wear the coordinating ties.
I realize these are personal choices, but can someone please give advice about what might look the best. At this point, the groom is even wondering if the groomsmen should be in grey or navy. Help please!
Thanks! Any advice is appreciated.
