    I think black suits would be better since you are doing different shades of brown dresses. You could match shirts or ties with the dresses

    My friend had brown suits + brown dresses – it looked great. She told the girls to buy their own dresses, so it wasn’t like the matched the browns.

    Black & brown have often be thought of as clashing (that’s why they say don’t wear a brown belt with black shoes for example), but I do think those type of fashion ‘rules’ are pretty outdated.  While I think you can do black, I think the brown would look more cohesive.  I was in a wedding where the bridesmaids wore brown and the men wore tan & green.  Have you considered a tan or grey perhaps?

    Are you for sure doing suits, and not tuxes?  If you are doing suits, I would recommend getting the darkest brown suit that you can find (just make sure that there is some color added to their outfit, as too much brown in the wedding party can be a bit boring).  Tuxwise- brown vest and tie with a black suit looks just fine!

    I think black suits would look better.  Men look sooo classy in black suits.

    I have this exact same situation. I love brown, so that’s what my ‘maids are wearing, but black is classy, and the guys already all own black suits, so we are pairing black with it. I’m sure it would look fine either way, so go for what you want! 🙂 (and I can for sure post some pictures for you to see of how it turns out, if that helps you)

    We are doing brown bridesmaids dresses, with black tuxes with brown vest, tie and hankerchief!

    We briefly considered brown tuxes, but we both thought they would look dated in the years to come. The black and brown combo tuxes comes together well and looks sharp!
