… and the groom in black?
I can’t find any inspiration pictures with that color scheme with pictures of the groom at all, much less in black, and I don’t know how it’d look. Logically, blush looks good with black, gold looks good with it, and ivory looks good with it, but do they all go?
The tiles on my church’s floor are also black, so I feel like my colors need to at least sort of go with it.
I know using silver instead of gold would work, but that seems… cold, maybe? Gold is warm and better for summer.

I think a black tux would be very elegant with that color scheme. I’m actually thinking of doing the similar colors! And my groom plans to wear a black tux 🙂

I am going with the same exact color palette and I think your groom in black is perfect. Here is a little something I put together for myself when I was deciding on my colors.
And here is a more detailed look at how I am using my colors…
My dress: blush
Groom: Black suit/ivory shirt/ivory tie/ivory vest
Groomen: Black suit/ivory shirt/champagne tie/champagne vest
China: Ivory with gold trim
Silverware: Silver with gold tips
Flowers: lots of greens with blush and white flowers (http://www.stylemepretty.com/2012/03/29/metropolitan-building-marie-antoinette-inspired-photo-shoot-by-judy-pak-photography/)

My colors are black & blush with cream and gold accents. The only thing that is black are my bridesmaid dresses and the tuxes. They all definitely go together as long as you don’t do anything crazy like try to incorporate every color into each item.
We’re doing light gold tablecloths with gold beaded chargers and gold chivari chairs. Flowers on the table will be cream and blush.

Ooh, I think that’ll look great! We’re doing something similar, but the boys are in charcoal. Blushes, greys, black, ivory/whites, and golds.

@mepayne: YAY! We’re color twinsies…sort of… lol
Blush, gold and ivory were my exact colors until my mom chastised me and said I didn’t have enough “color” so I added in a more vivid coral color. I know you’re more in the blush hue but coral is still kind of a deeper blended hue of pink and orange.
I had the same issue you’re having (and still having mini-panic attacks about once a week) where I couldn’t picture the combination. Well here’s what’s helping me through it.
Also, because my dress is ivory, we were told that my groom should wear an ivory shirt. Without seeing everything together, I have to admit, the shirt looks yellow, but I googled it and it looks much better when blended in with everything else.

I did the almost exact color scheme, except I added a bordeaux color as well. My dress is blush, bridesmaids bordeaux and groom and groomsmen in all black (hard to choose colors when you picked a blush wedding gown)! I love gold, so beautiful!
