Waitingbee57:  I’m not sure the red works with the brown, or with the orange.  It depends on what shade of brown, and how much orange there will be.

If you like the brown and red together, then I can’t see a problem.  I’m not into matchy, or coloured tux accessories, personally, but I dunt think your colours well look fine together as long as the orange isn’t too prominent.  Red and orange don’t make good bedfellows, usually.

Brown , red,  and orange go well together. For the doubters, have a look outside in the fall.

Ivory and black are both neutrals and look fine with almost everything.

I prefer the look of vests matching the suit or tux, but somehow the wedding industry has convinced many salespersons and customers that they should choose otherwise.

julies1949:  outside in the fall you aren’t looking at fire engine red, or at satin.  It becomes even brighter next to black.

Duncan:  sorry, I must have missed the part where she said they were wearing satin dresses.

The vests will have a satin finish.

Waitingbee57:  To the OP-brown with red and orange-looks fine to me

This is exactly what I would have my bridesmaids wear with an orange ribbon tied around them

I think there is too much red competing with the brown.  I’d give them a black vest to match their tux and a red tie so that each have a pop of red.  Plus, the look of colored vests are a bit more for teenage boys going to prom than a grown up elegant affair.

For the record I would give them black cummerbunds and black bow ties, ideally self -tie.
