This is the original look I was hoping for.
I think I'm going to have to settle for a white shirt with different color ties which is fine but I was hoping to do something more fun and creative. The colors are purple and orange. The boutonnieres are most likely going to be orange so I want the shirt/tie to be more purple to match the purple bridesmaid dresses. Can you help me out?!

A bold solid purple concord neck tie would look great on a purple gingham shirt - something like this from Lane's End (yes, it is below $60 - plus, it is lightweight with 100% cotton). For a little fun, the groomsmen can wear the bowties, while you carry out the crisp look. Or, a mismatched outfit, such as patterned neck ties with the same hue would look stylishly smart!
See below for some purple neck ties:

Alternatively, we can inject more of the fresh orange to celebrate the purple and orange palette that you're going for. A light purple shirt can create a sophisticated contrast with the dark grey suit and bright orange tie. Add an orange boutonniere with a grapetini ribbon to create a color link to the grapetini bridesmaid dresses.
Hats off to the groom-to-be and the bride-to-be for throwing us a box of ideas! They certainly have great style and vision!
P.S. The grey suit would be perfection with any of these rich dark brown shoes
