Groomsmen - no ties allowed

Ok, my fiance grew up mennonite and although he doesn't attend the church anymore his 2 of his groomsmen are still practicing.  I just found out that they do not believe in wearing ties.  I want to make everybody comfortable and happy so it isn't a big deal, but I had my idea of the guys wearing just slacks, vest and tie.  (It is an outdoor, garden wedding). Will it look good with no tie with the vest?  Or should I go with coat and no tie?  Just trying to get an idea of the picture without ties.  Can I have the groomsmen without ties and the groom still in a tie?  Really confused ha ha.

    Maybe have your FI try on all the different looks and pick the one you like best?
  • Here is a pick of some groomsmen (and groom) wearing slacks, shirt and vest with no tie



    I am usually not a fan of a vest without a jacket but that is just me.  But I think that as long as your wedding is not super formal then I think it will look good.
  • Wow, different Mennonites - I'm a 'practicing' Mennonite and would never think twice about guys wearing ties :-) My FI and his groomsmen definitely will be. But, I definitely agree that everyone comfortable is good and I like the pic that Maggie0829 posted. You could put a tie on the groom and have the rest tie-less I think and it would just make him stand out (but then I'm no fashionista!). My FI thinks that he'd prefer a jacket and no tie to a vest and no tie (and then wondered why I was asking, and I had to reassure him that he can in fact wear a tie, haha). But there are all sorts of options, and a tie won't make or break the look for your guys :-) 
  • I think this is a decision your fiance should make.  These are his attendants.  He should make the call.  If you have any male attendants, then what they wear should be your call.
  • Leave it up to your fiance.

    You could suggest that just he wears a tie and the groomsmen wear the vest without a tie?

    Ya, there is just one of the guys that is apparently follows this part and he was in a wedding for another one of their friends and he had to wear a tie, so he specifically asked before saying yes.  I think it will work out fine, and I do love that pic of the no tie and so does my FI so the no tie and vest will be great!!! 

    Thanks everybody.  Loving the message boards.
