Help!! i can't decide what colors our groomsmen should wear!

Sorry this is a bit lengthy.

We are having a complete outdoor ceremony and reception in July of next year. The wedding will take place at a golf course on the lake, in the gardens. Aka lots of green!

The theme is a vintage/ 1950s throwback, and my wedding dress is a tea length 50s dress as are the bridesmaids. The picture below is our exact bridesmaid dresses and my wedding dress is very similar. (I found the picture after we ordered everything, go figure). We know for sure that the groomsmen will have burgundy bow ties and the groom will have the bow tie featured below. But that's as far as we've come.

The guys want to wear something cool and slightly more casual. Something along the lines of slacks, shirts, bow ties and suspenders for the groomsmen. The groom wants slacks, shirt bow tie and a vest.

Here's where it becomes a challenge, without having everything so matchy matchy we want to vomit. What color of shirts/pants/suspenders/vest should they wear to match the pink/burgundy theme.

    I'd probably go with grey pants/suits, white/ivory shirts. I wouldn't match the shirts with the dresses or anything like that, since they already have a great coloured tie.

    We just found some grey pants that have burgundy pinstriping..... I think they would look really good with a cream /ivory shirt so we might have a winner!!

    I would suggest grey pants and maybe an ivory shirt. I also think the burgundy pants would be slick as heck! We are doing a similar theme/ vibe as well, our guys are wearing grey pants and vest and a seafoam shirt. Those would also work well with the bowtie and not be too close to the greenery background

    These are totally what I was envisioning. You could do the burgundy suspenders and bow tie and a different neutral colour pant and the socks could add in the pink to tie it in with the girls. I think that would look really nice!

    I have the burgundy pants one pinned! I actually love that, but I was worried it would be too much?

    The vision of mint green shirts with white suspenders and roses bow tie flow well woth the BMs dresses. The groom with his white shirt, bow tie and red vest to stand out.

    Go with the grey then for sure! It'll go better with a grey tweed anyways... which I think compliments the burgundy...

    Oooh pleeeease share photos of your bridal party when you have them!!! I love the 50s styling.

    LOOOOVE the girls look!!! And the matching bowtie for your groom is fantastic...

    My first thought went to light grey, but then I saw all these photos. Ignore the vests for the groomsmen, you could just do burgundy suspenders... and then maybe a grey or tweed looking vest for your groom!

    Thinking about it I’d say a white shirt and honestly grey slacks and vest, brown dress shoes, and try and do the suspenders in a burgundy to match the bow ties.

    I was definitely thinking cream, because it's gonna be HOT. But what's really throwing me off is the color for the pants. My FH really likes the idea of slacks and a different color vest.

    I just can't wrap my head around what will match, and I can't seem to find anything similar on pinterest even!

    I was looking at some pics of burgundy pants with cream shirts, but blue and grey also go really well!

    Omg. Who cares what they’re wearing. You guys will look incredible! I love those dresses.

    They will want to be a bit bit cooler because it is in the summer. Beige or a sandy colour might look good

    I'd go with a light cotton shirt, something maybe cream or like a light mint. Your bmaids dresses look GORGEOUS. I hope you show pictures of everyone!
