My bridesmaids picked some lovely darkmetallic gold lace dresses that couldn’t be a better complement to my ivory lace dress. Now we need to dress the guys…what color suit would you go with? It is an outdoor wedding with fall colors. Think lanterns, lace, aspen trees.
Here is the dress…
What do you think?

For a warmer tone, I’d go with a really deep, dark brown. If you want a cooler tone, navy blue would be better than black or gray imo. Gorgeous dress!

^^ What she said. Very dark brown would look freaking awesome.

You can’t go wrong with black suits!

That dress is absolutely gorgeous!! What a great find!
I would do traditional black for the groomsmen, but, if you don’t like that idea, dark-chocolate brown or charcoal gray would be options as well.

I also think dark brown would look wonderful, but convincing the fiance is a different obstacle. He kind of wants charcoal and I can’t decide how that will look.
I might be more excited about the girls dresses than any other element of the wedding. I like them so much I even bought one for myself. But even better, we found them on the clearance sale at Express for $30 each. Cheap enough that I bought all the girls their dresses (which kind of makes you feel like a rockstar).

@megmayo: bring the dress with you to men’s warehouse (or wherever you’re going to look at suits) and see what it looks best with. maybe if you and FH see it next to different colored suits, he would be on board with dark brown (or you might like charcoal).

@megmayo: I love that dress! Where did you get it from?
