I am bumping this post so it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle.

 I don’t have any pics, but I can tell you that generally when I wear a black dress my husband wears his black suit.  However, I can’t imagine it looking bad.  If all of your guys have navy suits have one of them try it on with the his gal next to him in a black dress to see how it looks!  Good luck!

There was a post not too long ago about the opposite situation, girls in navy dresses, and guys in black suits. I felt on that one that it’d be fine. With navy suits, eh, I would definitely second taking some random pictures of a couple of the guys/girls together to see how you feel about it. I couldn’t do it, personally, partially because unless the guys all own the *same* navy suit, they’ll be different shades and as someone who works in the suit business that would drive me nuts. Honestly, I wouldn’t do it. But that’s me, and my opinion. If you look at the pictures and think it looks good, then do it!

Let us know what you come up with. If you do go back to the navy idea I found this photo. It’s actually reversed where the guy is in black and the girl is in navy, but it doesn’t look bad to me. Maybe you can put the combo together on something like Polyvore or even David’s Bridal (where you can dress up yourself with your bridal party) and see how it looks.
