Groomsmens' attire?

Hi everyone! First post. My wedding colors are purple and silver, and I would love to have the groomsmen wear gray suits with purple ties. Is this appropriate for a formal evening wedding? Thanks!

    welcome to TK!

    if its a formal wedding i personally would go with tuxes.  suits are usually for more casual morning/afternoon weddings.

    I know nothing about formal menswear really LOL, I had already looked online at some tux rental shops and had picked out what I thought was a suit, but maybe it's a tux? Gray pants and jacket, vest, white shirt and tie. Is that a tux or a suit? Sorry for my cluelessness!

    If it's grey, it's probably a suit.  Personally, I think tuxedos should be black, not any other color, but it seems like there is a trend of grey and even brown and tan tuxedos now.  I think in 20 years we'll look back on those and wonder what we were thinking (like we look at powder blue tuxes from the 70s now...)

    Something kinda like this but with vests.

    Those are suits.  With vests, they would be three-piece suits.   I think it looks awesome.  

    Not sure if you can rent these or not.  However, Men's Warehouse and Jos. A Banks often have buy-one-get-one-free sales that might be a good way to get everyone the same suit for a much lower price.

    I think that the purple ties will be striking against the gray suits. Sounds perfect.
