Black tie attire for men is by far and away the most common wedding attire in America. Tuxedos are simply what most people think of as appropriate.
Reason include the sharp look, wide availability, and many options. Add to this the fact that the ties don't even need to be black . For gay men the keys is looking at the same. The suits do not need to be identical but should be fairly close. We are so used to seeing the bride and groom combination that we often think that the groom's outfit needs to recede and disappear along with him into the background. This is not the case as same-sex wedding. The guys are the center of the show, so work it! There are a number of ways you can draw more attention to the bridal couple.
The use of color in ties this vests and cumberbuns adds flair while still reading serious and traditional. Your ties might be in macthing a color and the other men in the wedding party can have black ties.
Flower buttonholes can also give a good deal of color. Two groom's may want something more elaborate than the average wedding would have. Gay men may even want to push the envelope a bit by wearing a big corsage. I've seen this and it works well. People expect the couple to have flowers at a wedding and a little bit excess for same-sex couples seems to work. Few gay men want bouquets so the buttonholes may be it for flowers.

On their home page hit the "Tuxedo" button on the side bar and you will get the most basic rundown. For more information go to the Editorial Corner of the same site.
