Depends on the definition of "similarly". You don't want one to show up in a black suit, white shirt and silver wedding tie and the other in a tan suit, striped shirt and knit tie. So there should be some guidelines, but other than that it's fine (even good) if they all look a bit different. Perhaps specify things like:
-Color family for suit (some shade of navy, some shade of grey, etc.)
-Tie color family (unless you're buying them ties)
It's a bit early seeing as I haven't proposed or anything yet, but here's my nearly-complete morning dress outfit. Pants need to be hemmed down and the jacket needs pressing, but apart from that and the lack of top hat this is nearly complete. I may try to find a pair of Chelseas to wear with this instead of the shoes I have on.
1920 two-button pinstripe morning coat - $95
1890s/1900s detachable button cotton waistcoat - $10
1910s cashmere stripe trousers - $40
Early 20th century detachable collar - $4
Late 1920s/1930s wedding tie - $2
Luxire detachable collar shirt - $70
Cheapo Mezlan patent leather cap-toe oxfords from ebay - $40
I don't think it's an absolute thar one can't wear them anymore, but it honestly is not working for me in your rig. I can't put my finger on it; maybe it didn't suit your face shape? At any rate, I would try some other options.
If you do wear the wing collar in the end, you may as well go full on and wear an ascot. In for a penny...
I've got a couple of different shapes of wing collar in the batch I picked up, so I'll try a different one. However, I think I'll stick with the four-in-hand as I've seen it done with wing collar a number of times and don't feel like tracking down an ascot when I already have a perfectly serviceable wedding tie. The morning coat really doesn't have any worn areas, it's just crumpled (especially in the sleeve) and needs pressing badly.
I'd prefer a turndown collar here vs. the wing collar, especially with a four in hand. It's not like it's hard to get a formal shirt to wear during the day with a turndown collar. I don't understand the comment about the coat being pinstriped (maybe I am blind, but it looked like a solid on my monitor). Buttoning point on the morning coat looks a bit high to me, though.
It looked solid to me as well, but OP described it as pinstriped.
