There are, however, plenty of unique and subtle ways to set the groom apart, like having him wear a tux/suit that is only one or two features apart from those of the groomsmen. For instance, dress your groomsmen in white dinner jackets while the groom wears a black tuxedo, or switch up the lapel, plain for the groomsmen and satin for the groom. The tie leaves plenty of opportunities for variation in color and style. For example, if your wedding's colors are dominantly blue with accents of silver, the groomsmen can wear blue ties (the main color), while the groom can wear a silver tie (the more rare accent color).
You can also play around with the boutonniere (the flower worn on the jacket lapel). It's important to wear flowers in the same color family for a formal, uniform look, so try two or three blossoms for the groom's boutonniere and only one for the groomsmen, or the groom could sport a fully bloomed flower while the groomsmen wear buds.
