I’m planning my wedding for next July and have decided that I want my colors to be chocolate brown and light green (like honeydew.) After looking at dresses online with my Maid/Matron of Honor we decided that we like the look of knee length chocolate brown dresses with a light green sash. First, do you think that brown dresses will work for July or is it too fall-ish? Second, if we did go with brown dresses, what would the groomsmen wear? I feel like the typical black tuxes would either clash with the brown dresses or the whole look of the wedding party would be too dark. What does everyone think?

I like the color combo. I think it will work especially if the dresses are a light material and you keep your flowers very summery. I would have the men wear brown suits with coordinating green ties.

That sounds lovely. It would be fun if your bridesmaids did that color combo and wore shoes that really popped. I would do charcoal or light grey suits for the guys with skinny ties that match the bridesmaids’ sashes.

Love the color combo – and I definitely think it still works for a summer wedding…I say do what makes you happy (my main color is yellow and my wedding will be in January!)
As far as the guys go, my vote is for brown suits. I love the look of them!

i think the brown/honeydew combo is really nice, and i think you can do whatever you wnat in any season, it depends on your preference. have you thought of any ideas as to what the rest of the decor is going to look like to match the brown/green theme? if you’re concerned about the color combination looking very “fall”, then maybe for the other elements in your wedding (flowers, linens, etc.) you can use more of the green rather than the brown. just an idea.

We’re doing chocolate for our June wedding. Don’t even worry about choosing season appropriate colours because in the end, you should have what you want.
As far as the groomsmen, we’re thinking of having the guys wear dark brown tuxes.

I think brown is fine for that time of the year. For the guys, I would suggest brown tuxes. Or black tuxes with brown vests/ties.

Sounds cute! Our colors are chocolate brown and aqua, accents ivory and antique gold. In the end, we actually ended up going with a antique gold bridesmaid dress…guys will wear chocolate brown, and my dress is ‘light gold’ (warm ivory) with aqua shoes, hair fascinator, earrings and crin.

I think brown dresses would be totally fine at that time of year. I tihnk you could do dark brown or even lighter brown suits on the guys. I’ve also seen black tuxes with brown dresses and it didn’t clash as much as you’d expect.

Mens Wearhouse has a chocolate brown tux. My guys are wearing it. J Crew also has a great chino suit thing that’s very popular out in California if your wedding isn’t so formal.
But a black tux with a brown vest and tie works too. Then I would Have the bootineers be honey doo green colored to tie the sashes in to the ensemble. It will be great! Love the color combo.
Brown is so hot for bridesmaid dresses right now!

I think it’s a great color combination. Brown and black actually don’t clash as much as you’d think they would. My Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing a latte color and our guys are in basic black, next to each other they look very clean, simple, and classic.

I’m thinking brown bridesmaid dresses for a wedding in April and I wore a brown bridesmaid dress for a wedding in February. I think it worked just fine and as long as you are happy with it, then great! The guys in the Feb wedding wore kahki pants with no jackets, but it was a fairly informal wedding.

chocolate brown dresses will look great in July! What about putting the groomesmen in a lighter suit (grey) with a brown tie? That way they would still coordinate!

This is my FSIL’s wedding. I thought I’d show you a pic so you would know that brown dresses and black suits look fine…this took place in June. I believe the dresses are David’s Bridal’s Truffle. [attachment=338306,42135]

Hey! I just went to a wedding last weekend and the bride had chosen knee length brown bridesmaids dresses. They were from J. Crew and very cute. I did think they needed that extra splash of color but I think brown would be great for a July wedding!
